Line of Succession
Most other characters
So said Sirius Black about the beliefs of his parents, but, what if to be a Black actually made you royalty? In 1649, the Black Family Dynasty declared themselves rulers of the Magical Population of Great Britain and have reigned since then. Like many rulers, the family has faced a multitude of complications and threats to its rule over the hundreds of years it has reigned, but it remains strong.
The year is now 1979. Whispers mingle the air foreshadowing the change that is on the way. King Orion Black I, sits on the throne after the tragic and suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of his father King Arcturus Black II in 1976. However, while he sits firm on the throne, the ship has began to rock. A recent surge of deaths has struck the family. Some may attribute it to the age of the victims, but, then again, most healthy wizards in their 60s and 70s do not suddenly drop dead. Nevertheless, nothing untoward has been proven, yet.
However, assassinations are not the only problems plaguing the Dynasty. In 1977, Orion's heir turned his back on the family, renounced the Dynasty and began associations with muggleborn sympathises. He was disowned mimicking the disownment of his cousin Bellatrix, in 1975, after she pledged her allegiance to a false lord.
Then, there are those outside the family who threaten its existence. The Ministry of Magic has been becoming more and more vocal calling for reforms. Only a few have been met, but it has not stopped them, especially now Albus Dumbledore has finally accepted the pots of Minister. As well, conservatives who scorn the changes made by the Ministry are steadily becoming more and more frustrated. Who would lead such an opposition? Lord Voldemort, of course. His force known as the Death Eaters have been active since the 1970s and have been defined as a treasonous organisation by the old King Arcturus since 1975. However, it has not stopped them. Nothing will stop him until he gets what he seeks.
Society has remained stable, but, as the foundations shake, one great push may have it tumbling over for good. For now, they remain content to rest on their line of succession that decrees that Prince Regulus Black will succeed his father, even as the rest in the line slowly drop dead around him. Perhaps the person behind it wants someone else on the throne? Maybe they do not realise that the line of succession might soon be changed forever?
The line might soon mean nothing. After all, inheriting is not the only way to gain a throne.
There is also conquest.
