Encyclopedia > Royal Salute

The Royal Salute is one of the two salutes given by the Guard of Honor, second being the general salute. The name "Royal Salute" means it is the honorary salute given by the Guard to the reigning Monarch. It is common that some countries without monarchs give the royal salute to the President/Leading Head of the country to give him/her the proper respect. However the Royal Salute practiced by the Commonwealth and the United Kingdom gives the Royal Salute to the reigning mornach only. Guard of Honor - Pulitzer Prize winning novel by James Gould Cozzens published in 1948. ... The English noun Commonwealth dates originally from the fifteenth century. ...

As such, the National Anthem is played as the Royal Salute is given, unlike the General Salute, which has a special Bugle Call named General Salute.

However, countries with more than one monarch such as Malaysia, which has 9 Sultans and 3 heads of state, the Reigning King (Yang-Dipertuan Agong), is given the National Royal Salute, i.e with only the national anthem playing. The other sultans and heads of state receive the Royal Salute, but following the state, the National Anthem is played first followed by the State Anthem.

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Acclamation (1679 words)
At the entrance of the emperor the audience rose and greeted him with shouts, which in the time of Nero were reduced to certain prescribed forms and were sung in rhythm.
Moreover, like the guns of a royal salute, these cries were also prolonged and repeated for a definite and carefully recorded number of times.
A long specimen of denunciatory acclamations which indeed might better be called imprecations, chanted in the Senate after the assassination of the Emperor Commodus (192), is preserved by Lampridius.
