As I mentioned the other day, Dad has discovered that we are descended from several royal families including the all of the Welsh Kings of Powys (reigned: c 400 to 1160); High King of Ireland, Brian Boru (reigned: 1002 - 1014); King Pepin I of Italy (reigned: 781-810); Charlemagne of France (reigned 768-814); Holy Roman Emperor Constantine (reigned: 306-337); Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (reigned: 161 to 180); Roman Emperor Trajan (reigned 98-117); as well as several other Irish, German, French, Welsh, English, Italian and Roman heads of state, nobels, bishops, and saints.
Therefore, I have proclaimed myself: King Skyboy, His Majesty of Siberians. Additionally, I announce King Skyboy's Royal Court.
I recognize Queen Meeshka, Her Majesty of Merryland and invite Queen Meeshka to share the throne in the Kingdom of Siberians as Queen Meeshka, Her Majesty of Siberians.
I recognize my sister, Princess Meadow, Her Majesty of Siberians.
I bestow upon my brother, Canyon, a Dukedom; forever more he will be known as Duke Canyon of Pennsylvania.
I bestow upon my brother, Biloxi, a Dukedom; forever more he will be known as Duke Biloxi of Mississippi.
I bestow the title of Knight Grand Husky (most senior of Knight ranks) to Echo; forever to be known as Sir Echo, Esquire, Foremost Legal Advisor to the King. Sir Echo receives this title for several reasons: his full name is Merlin's Echo, and Merlin was an advisor to a Welsh King, King Arthur; and, he has for some time now acted as legal counsel to dogs pro bono.
I bestow Knighthood to Jack of New England; forever to be known as Sir Jack of Coastal New England. Sir Jack receives this title for having made the suggestion of King Skyboy's Royal Court.
Over the course of my reign, I expect to bestow titles upon others for contributions to canine society deemed worthy of honor as determined by me (with advice, when requested, from those who are titled).
Those who have been earned title, may email me at email@example.com in order to receive this picture for their blog so others will know they belong to my Royal Court.
Royal Kisses, King Skyboy
