2.1 Sovereign Claim
Article 21 - Mandate of One Heaven
The Mandate of One Heaven is a form of Sovereign Claim of rule based on four (4) fundamental precepts first created in the 2nd Millenium BCE by the Chinese. It is the origin of Divine Right of Rule of Kings and is the standard followed by almost all civilizations until its eventual corruption by the Roman Cult and its agents in the 16th Century CE.
The four (4) fundamental precepts of the Mandate of One Heaven, passed down from civilization to civilization since the 2nd Millennium BCE are:
(i) The right to Rule is granted solely by Mandate of One Heaven; and
(ii) There can only be one (1) legitimate Ruler of a Kingdom possessing a Mandate; and
(iv) The Mandate to Rule may be inherited but only if the first three (3) precepts are maintained. Once the Mandate is lost, the choice of a new successor appointed by Heaven will only become known when the signs from One Heaven are matched to the events of history.
In accordance with the absolute right of One Heaven to issue mandates to those to Rule, in accordance with the most sacred covenant Pactum De Singularis Caelum, the Mandate of One Heaven is vested solely in perpetuity to the Society of One Heaven and all associated and legitimate societies of Ucadia.
As the Mandate of One Heaven is vested solely in perpetuity to the Society of One Heaven and all associated and legitimate societies of Ucadia, any society, ruler or entity that is not duly appointed in accordance with the most sacred covenant Pactum De Singularis Caelum therefore has no authority, nor Mandate of One Heaven.
