The First Congress of Constantinople - Event

Post by Charzy on Tue Sep 22, 2015 5:44 pm

The Great Palace of Constantinople stands ready for guests, the servants bustling about trying to organise food and drink. At the grand dining hall, at the head of a large, wooden table, sit two chairs side-by-side.
In one of these sits Emperor Alexios IV Komnenos, occaisionally looking up from the documents he still has in front of him, giving some trivial order to one of the servants. He is dressed in the current fashions, not exceptionally opulently, but very clearly in the clothes of an emperor with tight trousers, a fancy shirt and waistcoat and a sword sheathed at his hip.
Finally, he calls over a minister and orders him to take the documents aside for the time being. "Take these and stand over there until I call you. The guests will be arriving soon."

At the docks, carriages and horses stand ready to accept people.

Arriving a bit late from his recent trip Emperor Venerandus II Komnenos sits down in the other chair. He is wearing clothes similar to those of Emperor Alxexios IV Komnemos.

Yadiger Khan enters, flanked by two interpreters; all three are clad in traditional Tatar trousers and elaborate shirts. He performs a slight bow towards both emperors, before taking a seat.

Alexios nods at the Khan.
"Good evening, my son. Do you speak Latin, or must we rely on your servants?"

As the Chancellor was stuck in diplomatic talks over in Philadelphia, his trusted Foreign Minister Bartholomeus Welser, entered in his place. He wears a fancy dark blue coat, with a white shirt underneath and his trusted cane. He performs a bow towards the both Emperors and gives a nod to the foreigner already there, before he takes a seat.

"Hah, you speak better than some of my own servants, my son!"

As the Emperor speaks, a rather extravagantly dressed man in black priestly wear with a golden scepter on it enters and sits down at the left hand side of the two emperors. "Ah, and now he arrives! This is His Holiness, the Patriarch of Constantinople, timely as always!"

King Gustaf's royal ships sails into the Roman docks. It's sails, created purely for this event, are embroidered with the Swedish colours - regal blue and gold. As the sun hits the sails, the gold becomes blindingly bright, causing the Swedish sailors to cover their eyes with their hands.

The ship slowly docks, and a small escort party, alongside the King himself, disembarks, and heads towards the carriage allocated to him. Their traditional Swedish clothes make them stand out like a sore thumb, compared to the Roman dockworkers, guards, and other citizens. A while later, after being taken to their destination by carriage, they arrive at the venue.

"Salutae, Emperors, and other delegates." King Gustaf announces, as he walks in. "It is good to see you all."

For a moment, Alexios seems slightly annoyed by the incorrect address, but quickly regains composure, and looks to King Gustaf, smiling. "Greetings, my son. Please, sit."

"I see you were annoyed by my incorrect greeting, my Latin is not what it used to be. Many apologies." The King sits.

Flying the colours of the Holy Roman Empire, the Germanic Freestates Federation, the Kingdoms of Thuringia and of the Prince-Bishopric of Munster, the frigate SMS Gorizia enters the waters of the Golden Horn.

A richly decorated boat is put at sea, and a trio boards her, accompained by a group of sailors and some lifeguards from the Stuttgart Giant Grenadier Guard. The first mann is dressed in richly in a ornated suit, the second in a white and golden gown, bearing the bishopric insigna, while the third sports a white uniform, heavy with medals.

The group quickly makes his way to shore, and then to the imperial palace, where a secretary announces them.
"Fürst Heinz von Schwarzburg, Special Minister of His Highness the King of Thuringia, Count Frederick von Gotha, Kirschenfürst Federicus, Prince-Bishop of Munster, and Reichsritter Erich Horst, Feldmarschall of the Federation's Heer!"

The first carriage of the HRE arrives.

Out of it steps out a rather well-built man, with an insanely long beard, and rather long hair. He wears a plate armor, covered in brass, with what seems to be Bohemian coat of arms on the front. On his back, a cape hangs, made of lampart skin.

After him steps out the emperor himself - Ferdinand II von Hohenzollern. He wears a black military coat, a red band diagonally on it, and a red collar and cuffs. On it, he has about 10 military awards stitched, and underneath them is stitched a metal cross. He has rather short hair, not too fancy, one could say practical, and his facial hair consists only of sidebeards.

Then step out two people. Both of them look around the same, clothed in archbishop wear, both rather old, with no facial hair.

As the last, steps out a servant, who announces the kings as they enter the hall:

"I announce the king of Bohemia, elector of the Holy Roman Empire, Protector of All Slavic People inside of the Holy Roman Empire, Vaclav III Premyslid!"

"I announce the Kaiser of Holy Roman Empire, Elector of the Holy Roman Empire, Duke of Brandenburg, Protector of New march, Ferdinand II von Hohenzollern!"

"I announce the archbishops of Cologne and Mainz" (OOC: Boring but i cant be arsed)

After that, the second carriage arrives, out of it coming a really obese man, dressed in some of the brightest colours one could see, and those were yellow, blue and blue. After him, comes out a person dressed in a red coat and blue shirt, slightly bigger than average. After him comes out who seems to be the tallest person around the whole area, dressed in a blue coat and white trousers. Last one comes out a person dressed in rich burgher clothes, slightly obese, but still ratger muscled.

Once again, the servant announces them:

"I announce the Lord Palatin of the Rhein, Elector of the Holy Roman Empire, Karl II Sulzbach!"

"I announce the Duke of Saxony, Elector of the Holy Roman Empire, August II Wettin!"

"I announce the Duke of Bavaria, Elector of the Holy Roman Empire, Protector of the Swabian Affairs, Friedrich I Kaferlberg!"

"I announce the Stadtmajor of Lubeck, Hansafuhrer of the Hanseatic League, Protector of the Baltic Affairs, Protector of Maritime Trade, and the Minister of the Navy of Holy Roman Empire, Adolf II Bach!"

A large galley arrives, flying the flags of Italy. Once it docks, five Patriarchal bodyguards step out in file and slaute man coming off the boat. Clad in golden robes, Patriarch Sebastián II steps off slowly, holding on to a man presumed to be his medicus. One of the soldiers break file and announces loudly "The Illustrious Patriarch Sebastián II, of the Most Holy Kingdom of Italy and Mediterranean Bishoprics." then signaling to a few clergymen stepping off the boat.

Arriving a bit late due to a few problems at the border, His Imperial Majesty Jan Kasimir Piast II arrives alongside Prime Minister Jan Henryk Dąbrowski.
The Emperor personally greets all of the leaders present once he takes his seat.

Venerandus nods at the latest visitors.
"We are pleased to have you there, please take a seat".

The Patriarch of Rome sits down next to the Patriarch of Constantinople, exchanging a few words of greetings. He grimaces clearly as it he sits, then says in Latin. "Apologies, aging has not taken well to me."

After paying their homages to the Holy Roman Emperor and to the Diarchs, the trio goes on with their businesses, approaching first Yadiger Kahn.

Fürst von Schwarzburg approaches the Kahn with a warm smile on his face.
"Your Majesty, we greet you! I'm sure you'll be happy to know that the first expedition to the Kahnate is preparing in Stuttgart. Soon, the furs will flow, for our common wealth!"

"And you've surely been wise in accepting the Word of God into your country." Federicus sips from his wine glass, and then assumes a peculiar expression. "It shows a great deal of piety, unusual to be found outside the civilized Europe."

Calling to the minister at the side of the room, Alexios receives and begins leafing through a few documents. "Alright... Yes."

Clinking his spoon against his glass, he calls out, "Everybody, please. Attention."

"The first item on the agenda is a relatively simple matter. I believe that the Holy Roman Emperor agrees with me on this point, that we cannot allow this disturbing trend of kingdoms claiming imperial titles to continue.
Emperorship is the station granted to those and only those who are the heirs of Rome. In the case of myself and my brother, we are part of an unbroken chain of emperors stretching to Augustus. In the case of my friend the Holy Roman Emperor, his station has long since been recognised by us to be the successor to the Western half of the Roman Empire. As the heirs of Rome, we are crowned by the Pentarchy in the name of God and the Church.

However, it has been the intent of some kings to encroach upon the authority that this grants us. I speak, of course, of the King of Poland-Lithuania and the King of Sweden, both of whom are in attendance tonight. We cannot continue to allow either of you to claim the title of emperor, it is not only unlawful, but as you are not crowned by the Pentarchy it is blasphemous, and as you are very much not the heirs of Rome, it is an affront to Roman authority. I trust that you will not object to this, and with your confirmation that you will hereafter claim no title that lies above your position, this matter can be closed."

"Then what of the Emperors before the Roman Empire! If we can not claim the title of Emperorship, then we might as well rewrite History due to all of the emperors before then! Besides, I might as well mention that the Holy Roman Empire is illegitimate as it is not Holy, nor Roman, it is German, and it is not an Empire unless the ruler's heir takes the throne, The Holy Roman Empire is more of a loose confederation of German states! Therefore, according to your idea, it is illegal for any leader except for your and your heirs to be called Emperor! Might I say that you claiming that the Holy Roman Emperor being an Heir to the Roman Empire is quite hypocritical don't you think?" yells Emperor Jan Kasimir Piast II.

Perfectly calmly, Alexios stands, leaning against the table with his knuckles.

Speaking quietly, he turns to and addresses the Polish king.
"My son, it is unbecoming of a king to shout at the dinner table. Be calm."
"You would dare to not only steal the title of Emperor, offend God and the Church and maintain your unlawful claims, but now, at the table of Rome, in the eyes of the true emperors of the Empire, East and West, you would challenge our legitimacy? The legitimacy of Rome, confirmed by the Church? Confirmed by God?
I am a forgiving man. If you will now renounce your title and apologise for this affront, then I will gladly forgive this... outburst. I would also have you beg forgiveness from Their Holinesses, whose coronation you belittle. Repent now."

"Sorry, you enraged me when you said that, I will try to act better in the future, just do not think for a second that you can order another nation around, just because your nation is older. I will repent, but please let us come to an agreement, I will only revoke my title if something is in it for my nation." says Jan

The Patriarch of Rome, rising to his feet, yells in Latin. "The title of Holy Roman Empire is by all means legitimate. Should you forget, their ancestor," gesturing to the German dukes and kings, "was Charlemange himself, crowned King of the Romans by God and the Pope. Now, with the true Romans, who assert their rulership of the Western Roma-" the pope freezes, blood draining from his face. Slumping down, he croaks, "I require a medicus...immediately."

The Emperor Rushes to the aid of the Patriarch of Rome, and orders a doctor to help immediately.
"I repent for what I have done, I am so sorry that this happened" says the Emperor.

"Your Holiness!" Pointing to a guard, he calls out, "You! Fetch my physician immediately. You know where he is?" The guard nods. "Then go! Now! As fast as you can run!".
