Correct titles & forms of address

Post by john_tindall@mlc.com.au on Wed Jul 08, 2009 10:28 am

Hi all,

I thought I saw on this Forum a list of monarch's correct titles and forms of address.

I've searched but I can't find the darned thing again. Can anyone help, please?

Thanks,

John

Your Excellency - when writing to an abassador
Your Eminence - when addressing a Cardinal or Bishop
Your Grace - title for most people below the rank of King or Emperor
Your Holiness - The Pope
Your Most Christian Majesty - The King of France
Your Most Catholic Majesty - The King of Spain
Your Most Faithful Majesty - The King of Portugal
Your Sacred Imperial Majesty - The Holy Roman Emperor
Your Serene Highness - The Electoral Prince
Your High Mightinesess - used when addressing the members of the Dutch Estates-General
Your Majesty - Addressing a King or Emperor
The Shadow of God Upon Earth - The Ottoman Sultan
O'Dread Lord - Sometimes used by the Great Moghul of India.
Your Highness - Anyone of Princely or Royal Blood.

Further, I advise you to make close notice of what the players call themselves in their messages and use those titles.
