The King of Akkad is Akkad's head of state and absolute monarch. He serves as the head of the Akkadian monarchy — the House of Sin. The King is called the Great Gatekeeper of the Luxurious Ziggurat of Akkad. The title signifies Akkad's jurisdiction over the Luxurious Ziggurat of Akkad (commonly referred to simply as the Great Ziggurat). In less formal situations, the king is referred to as His Majesty of the Federal Kingdom of Akkad, His Majesty of Akkad or simply His Majesty.


The line of succession to the Akkadian throne closely resembles the Japanese line of succession. The Crown Prince, Ibarum V, is the heir apparent, which was confirmed by King Sargon in 1999. King Sargon XXII's second son, Durul II, is the third in line, and his third and youngest son (at 39 years old), Kuda IV, is the fourth-in-line. In the worst-case scenario that the line of succession is entirely wiped out, the rest of the royal family will convene and elect a new line. In the event that that the royal family cannot elect a new line of succession, the National Akkadian Sumer Assembly will elect them.

Legal Position

Akkad's official religion is the traditional Sumerian religion, and as a result, the King is the official head of the Akkadian religious assembly, the National Akkadian Sumer Assembly. The National Akkadian Sumer Assembly has the power to elect a new royal line of succession in the event that the original line is wiped out.
