Imperator: Rome – Legitimacy​

26 February 2019, Tuesday, 2:58:29

Legitimacy​

While a Monarch has the authority to act without asking for approval their subject characters will still react to their actions if they do not approve of them. Legitimacy is a value between -100 and +100 and models the perceived right for the Monarch to rule their country.

 

For the monarchies that exist in Imperator:Rome at the start of the game this was highly relevant as they were almost all established in this generation. None of them have a firm number of supporters, and many of them (like Egypt or the Seleucid Empire) have a population that consider them to be foreigners.

 

Legitimacy directly impacts the loyalty of all characters in the country as well as the happiness of all Freemen.

 

At 0 Legitimacy all characters in a Monarchy are capped at 50 loyalty (out of the normal 100), and at negative Legitimacy they will suffer a ticking loyalty reduction. Legitimacy also directly impacts the cost of enacting laws.

 

Legitimacy is gained from acting as a good monarch, most importantly:

 

  • -Ruler Popularity

 

  • -High Stability

 

  • -The Skill of your currently employed Court Philosopher

 

 

Legitimacy is reduced by anything that threatens popular support for the monarchy, most importantly:

 

  • -Low Ruler Popularity

 

  • -War Exhaustion

 

  • -Ruler Corruption

 

  • -The number of employed characters that prefer another successor than the current heir to succeed.

 

To help increase Legitimacy you can also at any time use a government action to Strengthen Legitimacy by 10 for a cost of 25 Civic Power and 5 Tyranny. There are also various indirect ways, like Holding Games, that increase popularity and therefore indirectly Legitimacy.
