Chuukese Succession

From IBWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Chuukese succession works on a matrilineal basis. First in line is the king's eldest sister's eldest son (half-sisters are equal to full sisters if they share a mother with the king), followed by younger sons, and then the king's eldest sister's eldest daughter's eldest son and so on. If there is no heir through the king's eldest sister, then it goes on down the line through younger sisters, and if there are none, then to a brother. If there are are none in that line, then to the male descendants in the female line of the king's maternal grandmother (i.e., to the king's maternal aunts' descendants), and then up the line of ancestry up to Nacayama Miyaco (King Toxiyuqui's mother). Although it is uncertain whether a man descended from King Toxiyuqui's younger sister, Masaco, would be acceptable to the Chuukese, as Masaco remained in Japan when King Toxiyuqui came to Chuuk, bringing his eldest sister Micaco with him. Female succession is permitted if there are no eligible males. A female of the Micaco line precedes a male of the Masaco line.
