    KING CARL FREDERICK VI SUFFERS FROM COMPLICATIONS IN SURGERY
    Car race accident has King holding onto his life as nation is in state of anxiety


    [GØTERNHAVEN] - The King who was always an avid sportsman has found himself in a great deal of trouble after taking part in a timed mountain sprint in which his race car encountered problems after crossing the finish line. The King’s time was good enough for seventh place, but problems with the either his control of the car, or the car itself have placed a great deal of questions on whether or not he will live through the night. The relatively young Carl Frederick VI took his car off of a relatively steep hill where his car should have come to a stop. Instead of stopping, his car turned sharply further down the hill race and flipped down a hill where after rolling multiple times the vehicle caught fire.

    The King was taken from the wreckage by the Royal Mounted Guards and immediately brought to a hospital where blunt force drama to his head appeared to be the main problem aside from slight burns. The King complained of a headache and passed out and this prompted medical scans on his head where profuse bleeding of the King’s brain has caused a great deal of pressure within his skull. This pressure can lead to severe brain damage.

    Carl Frederick VI was rushed to an emergency room where holes were drilled into his skulls to release the pressure, but it is feared that action was taken too late.

    Thus far the royal family has yet to make any comments, but sources close to the surgeon have suggested that the outlook does not look promising.

    The city of Gøternhavn has entered into a state of vigils and prayers in which candles and flowers have been placed en masse in front of the hospital. Police have had to begin moving this outpouring of emotion to locations further away from the enterance in order to allow other patients access to the hospital. Further showings like this have been seen at the Royal Palace as well, where police urge the public to make their support visible to allow for others to access to the healthcare services.

    RUMORS CONFIRMED THAT CARL FREDERICK VI IS ON LIFE SUPPORT
    An tragedy has taken a man from his family, and deprived a nation of its King

    [GØTERNHAVEN] - Rumors have circulated over the days that the King’s surgery to save his brain have failed. These rumors while mostly based in hearsay and wild speculation have spread so far throughout the populace that it has forced the Government to issue a statement in support of them.


    Prime Minister Rasmus Olsen spoke before reporters at his home, Blåhuset, where he gave a statement on the status of the King. Prime Minister Olsen, who has led Jutmark for the past 17 years, remarked, “I feel that that past week our nation has lost a prime figure in what it means to be from the North. He was an adventurous spirit, a man without equal, who took care to his family just as much as he took to sport and education. Unfortunately it would seem sport has taken him from his family and our nation. We have lost a great leader in our world, and I have lost my best friend. I will speak directly with Prime Minister Henriksen of Østveg about succession over the next day.”

    Olsen was pressed further on the issue of his death, and why it had not yet been reported, “The royal family wishes to maintain their privacy, and as such we have tried our best to keep as much information private as possible. It is understood that Carl Frederick is a public figure, but clearly he is not legally dead. He is just in what appears to be a permanent coma, and appears to be exhibiting limited to no brain function. He cannot live without the aid of machines and so there are moral questions left to be answered, both by the family, but also by the Folketing.”

    The question biggest question is one of succession. Carl Frederick does not yet have a male heir, and instead has three daughters. The last one born a year ago, Margarete. Succession law would mean that a different monarch from either a far removed branch would be required, or a new King elected. The issue gives rise to the question of possible intervention from Gedeland, or even the continent. The Folketing is scheduled to meet soon after Prime Minister Olsen’s meeting with Prime Minister Henriksen.

    We are deeply saddened to hear of the medical condition King Carl Frederick VI and wishes for a speedy recovery. The thought of military intervention to claim your thrown is greatly concerning, and we will seek to preserve the peace in the North. We will support the decision made by the Folketing in the ascension of your new king.

    His Majesty's Government hears with distress the news coming from Jutmark about the health status of his majesty, King Carl Frederick VI. The Caledonians themselves have lost a king in a car accident fifteen years ago. We offer our condolences to both the royal family of Jutmark but also to the Jute people whom have lost a great and promising leader. We hope that peace and stability will continue to reign in Western Scania, our sister continent and that the Folketing will do what is best for the Jute people.

    Signed,

    FOLKETING CONFIRMS EMERGENCY POWERS TO QUEEN
    Changes to succession law begins in all nations of the union

    [GØTERNHAVEN] - Queen Nadia was given emergency powers by the Folketing, in which she is given the powers held by the incapacitated King Carl Frederick. This was confirmed by the Folketing, which made it law in all three constitutent parts of the Realm (Jydermark, Østveg, and Finner og Isørene).


    Her powers grant her the ability to sign bills into law from the Folketing, Storting, and Lagting, the Parliaments of the Realm. Ultimately, the Folketing is the main Parliamentary body and decides the supreme law of the Realm. There the Folketing, situated in Gøternhavn, has begin discussion on changing the laws of succession. The bill would institute absolute primogeniture, and would mean that Princess Katrine Frederikke, known by her peers as “Rikke” and named in honor of her grandfather, would find herself as the next Crown Princess. This is over course controversial among many conservatives that would not wish to see the Realm’s first Queen. Although Queen’s existed during the pre-modern Viking Era, the modern iterations of the Realm have maintained strict adherence to male primogeniture.

    This measure has been put forward by the Conservative People’s Party in Jydermark, the Conservative Party in Østveg, and the Social Christian Union in Finner og Isørene. Already, Finner og Isørene have pledged agreement to the bill, and plan to vote tomorrow. A similar timeline is expected in the Folketing.

    The problem today is in Østveg. Vehement dissatisfaction was expressed among the Conservative Party in Østveg, in which the Party has shown rare disenchantment with the leadership of Christian Henriksen. With the party fractured, it is still believed to be passed by the the Storting; however, it would need the support of the opposition, which is rumored to be making demands for its support.

    Either way, the public which has not heard relevant news about the King since Prime Minister Olsen last spoke, can only now begin to see a clear picture. King Carl Frederick is likely to be near death.

    We protest this constitutional coup in the strongest terms. The legitimate successor to the throne of Jydermark and Østveg is young Joachas Gunn, the Duke of Clyth, brother of Queen Julian of Gunnland. The constituent nations of the realm will not stand for a putsch that concentrates absolute power in the hands of the queen-consort and the princess royal. Nor will Clan Gunn be deprived of its rights: Her Majesty remembers promises made long ago, and will demand satisfaction if they are broken.

    We reiterate: this action threatens constitutional government in Jydermark-Østveg, the legitimacy of royalty everywhere in Europe, and ultimately peace among nations.

    East-Gouw Marken considers this an internal matter to be solved according to the law of Jydermark-Ostveg.
    West-Gouw Marken recognises the true successor Joachas Gunn.

    SUCCESSION BILL PASSES FOLKETINGET BUT FAILS IN ØSTVEG
    The Succession Bill only needs to be signed by Queen Nadia but questions arise

    [GØTERNHAVEN] - In what can only be described as a worst case scenario Austwegian Statsminister Christian Henriksen resigned, after the Succession Bill failed to pass in the Austwegian Parliament, the Storting. The Succession Bill managed to pass easily in both Jydermark, and the overseas territories of Finner og Isørene.


    Typically in this is sort of predicament, the King might ask for the bill to be debated and voted upon again with amendments to solve the problem. Then the Folketing would vote upon this version; however, there was no real reason to do so as legally, only bills must pass the Folketing for the King to sign them into law. The King agreed informally to these procedureal requests in the 19th century in order to maintain peace within the Two Kingdoms as the institution of the Monarchy depended upon it to remain viable to the people.

    Today this unofficial common law arrangement stands to be broken by the ambition to keep the realm out of the hands of Gunnish Duke Joachas Gunn. The Duke of Clyth has already received support from the Kingdom of Gunnland, and from West Gouwmarken.

    This complicates proceedings quite extensively for the Realm as the question of foreign interference may come to fruition if Queen Nadia signs the bill.

    The Queen has indictated that she will sign the bill before the end of the week, which places a great deal of stress on the Austwegian case. The Storting has insisted that proper succession law be commenced, as the entirety of the Conservative Party revolted against the Henriksen Government forcing new party leadership. This said, when questioned about case of Joachas Gunn, interm Statsminister Jacobsen refused to confirm Gunn as the rightful heir. “The situation is obviously quite busy, and our ultimate wish is to refrain from any conflicts. This does not mean proper laws shall not be followed, and ultimately the rights of Østveg ought to be respected by the Queen.”

    Folketinget Statsminister Olsen has stated quite to the contrary, “We expect Princess Rikke to assume her place on the throne. It has been decided by the people of the Two Kingdoms that it shall be done, and therefore we cannot hesitate waiting for a backwards and misogynist political party to come to its senses.”

    Olsen was further asked about the Gunnish Duke and he was quick to dismis the notion, “I’ve read the dispatch and the news about it. It is not my position to judge why the Gunners would want to invite their Duke to our free Northern Kingdoms when we still have a living King on the throne for all intents and purposes. Our beloved Frederick still has a pulse, and this decision made by the Folketing was to make a statement about our belief in dear Rikke.”

    Either way, the domestic and foreign reaction will be tremendous should the Queen sign the bill.

    The palace coup, with its ultraconservative supporters in the Jydermark parliament, is taking place under the nose of Carl Frederick VI. We have learned from Clan Gunn that the king clearly communicated his desire to young Joachas that he would be proud to have him as an heir. If His Majesty wished for such a bill to be signed, one can only imagine that he would put his signature upon it. Worse, it is being forced upon the Austwegian people. The constitution of the Two Kingdoms is not meant to allow Jydermark to dominate Østveg.

    Joachas, Duke of Clyth, will always respect the constitutional laws and parliamentary traditions of the Two Kingdoms when he accedes the throne.

    Obviously Queen-consort Nadia has no constitutional authority to sign this succession bill against the stated will of the rightful King. To sign this bill would lead Jydermark-Østveg towards civil war, and risks dragging the North into a serious conflict. Time must be made for diplomacy and negotiation before it is too late. Our ambassador in Gøternhaven has received instructions.

    [SECRET COMMUNIQUÉ]

    His Excellency Martin mLd. Gordon, Ambassador


    The Kingdom of Gunnland desires peace. Queen Julian believes that her young family is being taken advantage of, since their older and more powerful leaders have tragically died. The Thing of All Gunnishmen has no cause to vote for war, but the government cannot stop Clan Gunn from pursuing its interest in this succession crisis. Clan Gunn may use violent means, escalating an already tense situation.

    Here are the terms of a peaceful settlement that we propose. Joachas Gunn, the Duke of Clyth, is four years old, and will not attain the Gunnish age of majority for twelve more years. Her Majesty Queen Julian proposes arranging the marriage of Joachas to Margarete when she is of age, thereby reuniting the royal lines and avoiding future conflicts. Until that time, Princess Katrine Frederikke could rule Jydermark-Østveg as regent. We would ask for this treaty to be drawn up in writing, and to be given some proper assurances that it would be carried out in good faith. But by these terms, crisis and war can be averted.

    M. mLd. Gordon
    Ambassador to Gøtenhaven
