The Imperial Sovereign was the (partially) hereditary ruler of Alfheim when it united under a world government 340 years before Year 1, and became the ruler of the Star Imperium when it was founded in Year 1.  The Imperial Sovereign by law and custom was always of the race of Star Elves.

Apart from appointing the two Imperial Viceroys, the Imperial Sovereign also approved or vetoed legislation passed by the Imperial Parliament and appointed aliens to the Parliament.

When the Sovereign was physically or mentally incapacitated, his or her powers were exercised by the Council of Twelve

The Law on Removal of the Sovereign outlined procedures for removing the ruling Imperil Sovereign, but it was never invoked.

When the Imperial Sovereign died or abdicated his or her office, his or her oldest surviving child inherits the office.  Otherwise, a new Sovereign is elected by absolute majority of the Imperial Parliament.  Until the selection of a new Sovereign, the Council of Twelve excercised the powers of Imperial Sovereign. During the periods when the position of Sovereign was vacant, numerous Viceroys, particularly those who assumed the position of Prime Minister, assumed de facto leadership of the Imperium.

Male Sovereigns traditionally changed their name to Artei and female Sovereigns to Satei.

After the establishment of the United Planets in Year 13,100, the Imperial Sovereign's position is officially abolished.
