The International Commission on Nobility and
(See Additional Articles below)
Introduction to the Commission's Website
All the major legal principles that promote
genuine and authentic nobility, royalty and chivalry are contained in the following new two volume book. Note what
is says in the first paragraph of the Foreword:
The whole field of
nobility and royalty is in disarray and confusion. It is rife with falsehoods, misguided experts, phony princes, and
counterfeit chivalric orders. Besides the numerous scams and charlatans that exist, there is a widespread
misunderstanding of the international and natural laws that govern dynastic rights. This is a field that is truly
divided. This sad state of affairs need not continue. If international law is honored, revered and respected, then
everything can be set in its proper order. The grand key to this needed unity is the rule of the just, time-honored
laws that already exist.
The author is Dr. Stephen Baca y Kerr, JD, LLM,
MAT, former special counsel to the Imperial and Royal House of Habsburg, Professor and Dean of the Law School at the
International College of Interdisciplinary Studies. His book is The Entitlement to Rule: Legal,
Non-Territorial Sovereignty in International Law and it is a masterpiece. Note excerpts of what people
have said about it:
"It is written
in a clear and compelling manner. It is hoped that more and more people will become familiar with the laws of
justice contained in this book." (Thubten Samphel, director of the Tibet Policy Institute of the Central
Tibetan Administration and author of the book Falling Through the Roof, Dharamshala, India)
magnificently done and of great worth." (Adalberto J. Urbina Briceno, Sc.D., Professor Head of the Public
International Law Chair of the Catholic University Andres Bello- Caracas)
"It is a
goldmine of references and is a valuable account of a [thought provoking] . . . and poorly understood area of law." (Rev'd
Professor Noel Cox, LLM, MA, MTheol, Ph.D., LTh, FRHists, Barrister, Aberystwyth University, New Zealand)
"Dr. Kerr has
put together a book that is a "one of a kind" providing what is needed to perpetuate the rights of deposed
sovereignty. For all those interested in the legal future of nobility and royalty, this is a very important,
scholarly and insightful book to read." (LaWanna Blount, Ph.D., F.Coll.T, vice president and professor at
the American College of Interdisciplinary Sciences, Como, Mississippi, USA)
book . . . is one of those . . . path breaking works that throws new light on a field of study . . . on the complex
legal and philosophical sinews that keep alive [deposed] monarchies. . . . This type of writing fills a huge gap
within the royal studies field. . . ." (Dr. Diana Mandache, historian and author, Budapest, Romania)
obviously has a deep understanding of international law and how it relates to deposed monarchies and exiled
governments. The content is well structured and well written. I accept this book as conforming to the highest
academic standards expected of a master scholar and practitioner." (Alexander Arapov, Sc.D., Professor of
the Department of Philosophy and Sociology of the All-Russian State Distance-Learning Institute of Finance and
Economics, a branch of the Financial University of the Russian Federation)
"This has been
the most interesting and helpful book I have read in the field of nobiliary law as well as international law . . . .
It exemplifies the highest level of scholarly content, clarity and depth of inquiry yet presented on this profound
and important subject." (Prof. Dr. Mirjana Radovic-Markovic, Academician, Institute of Economic Sciences
and Faculty of Business Economics and Entrepreneurship, Belgrade, Serbia)
This unique book is being offered for free
because of its singular importance to the field of nobility and royalty. Go to the website: www.the-entitlement-to-rule.com.
The International Commission on Nobility and
Royalty presently consists of over 60 members and contributors and seven board members and officers. This
includes some scholars and experts in the field of nobility and royalty and a working association with four royal houses.
No one is paid -- everything is done voluntarily. This association is organized to benefit society with what we
consider to be of great worth and value. We average about at least 5,000+ hits a day. (See our "Public Newsletter")
Our main goal and purpose is education to dispel the various misunderstandings that exist about Constitutional
Monarchy, Royalty, Nobility and Chivalry, and show how it is really a shining gift that benefits those countries
that either adopt it or preserve it.
In fact, research has shown that those countries
that have constitutional monarchsgenerally have the best economies, wealth, prosperity, freedom and stability on the
The Problem and the Purpose
The International Commission on Nobility and
Royalty was originally conceived to protect the field of nobility and royalty from modern day pirates who
impersonate, and by their fraudulent declarations defame and denigrate those who hold authentic titles and valid
claims. Education through articles are the chief means the Commission will use to defend and preserve the field from
the menacing forces that are presently besieging it and denigrating its members.
Regrettably, there are literally thousands of
people with phony titles of nobility, who claim royal or noble descent. They are masquerading as genuine title
holders throughout the earth. Some thirty or more foul organizations are deceifully pumping out hundreds of
counterfeit title holders, and at least forty plus self-appointed phony orders of chivalry exist -- giving out
imitation knighthoods rather than authentic ones. By the turn of the century, this kind of fraud has more than
quadrupled. The problem is, not only are they fake, but title inflation cheapens the greatness of those who are
real, and hold authentic titles and genuine honors.
Another way this hurts what is real, is that
number of these self-deceived impersonators believe they are suddenly high class and give out bad examples, which
makes what is real look bad. That is, instead of being unpretentious and dignified, they are, to some degree, showy,
high minded and haughty, which behaviour turns people off; such that, those who deal with them tend to consider all
title holders with distain as snobby individuals. The legitimate nobles are not this way, but it is often quite
difficult to discern the actual and real from the fakes without specialize knowledge -- hence, the existence and
importance of this website.
Others claim illustrious ancestors
based on nothing more than family fairy tales or vague legends passed down through the generations, or because of
unscrupulous greedy men who sell unproven pedigrees on the internet to the unwary and unguarded.
In general, internet fraud is a frightening and
growing problem. The Internet Crime Complaint Center reports over $500 million worth dalors worth of fraud in
2010. This huge amount only expresses what has been complained about to the authorities. Much more fraud actual
occurred -- probably seven to eight times as much, but was never reported. This kind of crime is rampant and
epidemic. It also exists in the field of nobility and royalty.
It is a very sad and undeniable fact that we live
in a day of increasing frauds, bogus titles and scoundrels who plunder and take advantage of the innocent and the
ignorant. Hence, there really needs to be a practical and effective organization designed to help protect the public
and safeguard it from the lies and deceit of the self-proclaimed title consultants, fake knighthoods and
Another threat to the field is the domestic or
nationalistic belief that any title of nobility given by a former sovereign house in current times is for private
use only and has no worth or value, because no government will recognize it. However, under international law,
deposed royal houses are legally sovereign and therefore can preserve those rights by obedience to the laws that can
preserve it intact from generation to generation. (Please see the article DEPOSED SOVEREIGNTY AND ROYALTY: how to preserve it
and how to lose it)
The International Commission has been organized as
a private, non-public organization. It was with the idea in mind of protecting the public like a professional
association or licensing board would. It has not been set up to expose false nobility or make believe titles, but to
educate people so they can recognize counterfeiters as some create impressive websites, and mislead very skillfully.
We have the ambition of making it eminently
obvious to all people that constitutional monarchy is a choice that has brought prosperity and stability to most of
the richest and most democratic nations on earth -- nations that are doing an unusually good job of protecting our
most precious of rights as human beings -- principles such as life, liberty and the free pursuit of

How to Identify a Scam and Thus Protect Yourself
There are plenty of scammers or
self-deceived people out there on the worldwide web. Part of our focus is on those selling fake titles or
knighthoods or who impersonate what is real and genuine. Please see the articles "Fake Titles and
Counterfeits," "Title of Nobility
Scams," and "Orders
of Chivalry" for information on how to recognize if a person or organization is bogus or
the offer of an "opportunity" appears too good to be true, it probably is." Follow

who you are dealing with. If you have not heard of a person, so-called prince or order of chivalry that you intend
to do business with, learn more about them. Depending on the amount of money that you intend to spend, you may want
to visit the business location, check with the Better Business Bureau or consult with your bank, an attorney, the
police or the FBI fraud center.

them, do your homework, read the relevant articles, but please do not let yourself be taken in by any questionable

A Mark of Distinction
Ethical conduct is a core value --- fundamental
and basic to everything we stand for.
Our motto is "built on solid evidence."
In other words, we are an evidence based society. Everything must be factual, accurate and true. To do otherwise is
to violate the whole purpose of our existence. We were created for the express purpose to promote the ideals of what
is both true and real, as well as valid and authentic, in the important fields of monarchy, nobility and
Our Code of
Conduct provides essential guidelines and obligations to the highest standards of ethics. Not only to comply
with the law and common decency, but in good faith to do our very best to be outstanding, cost/effective and
reliable in all our dealings.
We have, therefore, as a business belonged to
"Chamber of Commerce on the Web," which is "The Seal of Integrity in Online Business"
for over eight years. "The Chamber of Commerce on the Web" may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org (Chamber of Commerce, 2013: http://chamberofcommerce-ontheweb.com)
The sole purpose of our membership in the Chamber
was to provide an environment in which a claimant or client could be confident, assured and correct in trusting us
to do what we say we will do.
In addition to proving
ourselves to be a business organization of integrity, while operating as a for-profit business, the Commission
achieved the highest rating of an "A+" while we operated as a business through the "Better
Business Bureau®In Northern Nevada." That is, on a scale of A+ to F, the commission received
"BBB® Non-Accredited A+
However, since the International Commission is no
longer a business, but has downsized to a become a strictly voluntary service organization, continuing as a though
we were a business, make no sense.
We will, of course, continue to serve the best
that we can and uphold all our former standards for truth and integrity.
The positive honors we
have achieved in the past will be continued. Ideals and ethics are important to us and will continue to be a guiding
factor in all our decisions. It is central to all that we do.
