The Imperial Royal Guard is a special military branch that's maintained by the varying Great Imperial Houses, predominantly dedicated to the protection of the Imperial lineage, Imperial Houses, locations and assets deemed important by the Emperor or the Great Houses. Rather than reporting to Empire's main commanding military structure, the Imperial Royal Guard instead pledge their allegiance directly to the Emperor and their designated House Wardens.
Concept: Each member of royalty, including the family members of the House Wardens are entitled to elect a personal guardian called a "Knight of Honour". These Knights are given special authority and are placed under the command of the House Warden and their designated individual.Furthermore they are considered the rank of Major in the military and all subordinate personnel much treat them as such.
Created in 115, the first Imperial Royal Guard took the form as the Legion of Valour along aside their brothers and sisters. The Legion of Merit and the Royal Legion served at the emperor's side displaying courage and skill throughout the ages until their reformation as the IRG we know today which begun in the year 2070 and finished by the year 2075 and were officially deployed by the year 2080..-----
The Imperial Royal Guard stem deep in the anal of history back to the creation of the Empire itself, they were originally a 100 man Bodyguard unit comprised of Knights to safe Guard the Emperor.
Over the years the Guard's role in the military waxed and waned as they had been repeatedly enlarged, reduced, reorganized and even disbanded at a certain point.
The Imperial Royal guards and the House Guards are technically only loosely connected with each other as each Great House may organize there own Guard to however they please but before this was so the emperors held contingents of Imperial Guardsmen in each Great houses household to safe guard the Emperors Guest quarters and assets. Subsequently the Great houses and Lords petitioned that they be able to form their own Independent House Guards, and so the emperor compromised and delegated a portion of his own that were stationed in the various Great Houses to form the core of their House Guards.
Imperial Orders are branches of Imperial Guards under their designated House Warden and House Council. TBA.
