CoA of Francia TONK

The title of "Emperor of Francia", like that of Holy Roman Emperor, is supposed to denote the head of state of the entirety of Francia. However, no true central authority exists, and the position is more of an honorary one. In truth, the only semblance of common policy comes out of the Tours Parliament.

For centuries, the Imperial crown was fought over by Burgundy, Brittany, or Normandy. Every so often, Valois, Paris, or Auvergne found it bestowed on them, though with the exception, they have mostly faded from contention.

After Burgundys inheritance by Luxembourg in 1479, and the gradual receding of Normandys confidence, Brittany has been seen as the driving force of the Empire, as evident by the continued election of Breton monarchs. In light of this, Auvergne is viewed as its only real competition for the position.

The list of Francian Emperors officially begins with Pepin the Short's reign, even though monarchs before him used the title "King of the Franks", and the regnal numbers are numbered as such.
