Brandenberg Edicts

The Brandenberg Edicts were a set of policy issued by Archon Katherine Steiner in 2413 that firmly established LCAF ranks. The ranks in the LCAF were adapted from those used by the Federal Republic of Germany in the 20th century; the edict also added the title of Duke. Those titles were life peerages and used only to bolster her military's egos while having no real power to them.[1]
