Emperor Of Japan (5087 words)
Although the emperor currently performs many of the roles of a ceremonial sovereign as Head Of State, there has been persistent controversy within Japan as to whether the emperor is in fact a true Monarch in a political sense or merely a hereditary Pretender holding such office within a constitutional parliamentary Republic.
Hence the emperor is simply a political actor within a government that does not truly adhere to the Westminster system where the position of "head of the state" requires a person of sovereignty or with popular mandate to assume that office.
The acceptable source of imperial wives, brides for the emperor and crown prince, were even legislated into the Meiji -era imperial house laws (1889), which stipulated that daughters of Sekke (the five main branches of the higher Fujiwara) and daughters of the imperial clan itself were primarily acceptable brides.
