Titles bestowed by Queen Mother of the Americas, Nicole the Great and Jose I, the Widow Norton will be allowed.

All other titles will be red-lined as will affiliations with houses and societies.

There will be no greetings, no regrets or ball announcements.  Personal titles (such as the Purple Passion Emperor) will be limited to monarchs only.  Please note, NO dynastic names will be allowed. We ask that you use the name that you are customarily introduced with at your own court functions.
If you have more than two last names, pick your two favorites. 🙂
