The person of the monarch is, under the constitution of 1871, inviolable. Yet this does not mean he can't be charged with criminal offenses. Rather, as the interpretation of the deputies, it means that if an Emperor commits a crime, it has the same effect of an abdication. The heir of the Empire is always the first male son of the Emperor. If he only have female daughters, they can be heir of the throne. Should the Emperor have no issue, it will be traced back one generation, with the same rules: preference of the first male issue.
Should the throne not be occupied, because of death of Emperor or any other problem that stop an Emperor from ruling, yet the heir is uncapable, because of age or other reason, and regent shall be chosen by the senators. He will rule until an Emperor, or Empress, assume the throne.
