This Commission, and Authority on Nobility was established in February 2020 to unite and honor in its citizens those persons who represent the contemporary Nobility which remains latent but hidden in the shadows due to colonial slavery and wars on the continent of Africa, America, Asia and India. Kings, Queens, Prince and Princess were kidnap and taken to foriegn lands to be dehumanize by enslavement for over 400 years.
This Association is based on the ideals of chivalry, aristocracy and for the Defense of Disapora Nobility.
Many other Nobles have inherited their Titles after becoming US citizens and as of now there is no law that would have the Government base any action against the said Nobles, if one was even taken.
Article I Section 9 Clause 8 of the Constitution clearly forbids the Granting or use of Titles in the USA but does not state a way to enforce the above law, quoted below:
The Title of Nobility Clause is a provision in Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, that forbids the United States from granting titles of nobility and restricts members of the government from receiving gifts from foreign states without the consent of the United States Congress.
This clause is also sometimes called the "federal" Nobility Clause, because a similar clause in Article I, Section 10, Clause 1 bars the states (rather than the federal government) from granting titles of nobility.
The Title of Nobility Clause is also one of the clauses that is sometimes called the "Emolument Clause".
Section nine and ten of the Constitution of the United States of America in no way forbids or disallows Titles of Nobility but merely disallows the granting of Titles of Nobility by the government of the United States.
Therefore, according to the Constitution, the State is not interested whether a person has an ancient or new noble title, and does not forbid the title being born and used in public and private relations, nor is the abuse of noble titles considered a crime.
2. The constitution of the United States provides that no state shall "grant any title of nobility; and no person can become a citizen of the United States until he has renounced all titles of nobility." The Federalist, No. 84; 2 Story, Laws U. S. 851. 3.
There is not in the constitution any general prohibition against any citizen whomsoever, whether in public or private life, accepting any foreign title of nobility.
An amendment of the constitution in this respect has been recommended by congress, but it has not been ratified by a sufficient number of states to make it a part of the constitution. Rawle on the Const. 120; Story, Const. Sec. 1346.
From domestic American tradition:
From the 1890s onwards, the American genealogists became aware of the fact that many Americans had noble ancestors.
This coincides with the foundation of several lineage-societies: Order of the Crown in America, 1898; The Baronial Order of Magna Charta, 1898, The National Society of Americans of Royal Descent, 1908, and others.
Royal descent plays an important role in many African societies; authority and property tend to be lineally derived. Among tribes which recognize a single ruler, the hereditary blood line of the rulers (who early European travelers described as kings, queens, princes, etc., using the terminology of European monarchy) is akin to a dynasty. Among groups which have less centralized power structures, dominant clans are still recognized.
Oral history would be the primary method of transmitting genealogies, and both nobles and commoners base their status on descent. The royal blood is among the centralized power of all blood groups.
The United House of Ancestry Commission on Nobility is a nobility and monarchist organization mission is to educate: to give unity to African and American monarchists and nobilities, enabling them to meet and contact other monarchists; to promulgate information about and foster interest in monarchy, monarchies, and royalty; to generally educate the public on these subjects; to advance the political theory, history, and philosophy of monarchy, to further theories of modern monarchy, and to promote and defend the theory of monarchy as a superior governmental form.
Monarchs have always been here , a permanent symbol of the state, Nation, Tribe or Chiefdom and man's relationship to it. The modern monarch is often above the fray of partisan politics, an advocate for his nation's principles, if not its specific governmental policies.
Today, many monarchs may reign but not rule. The interest of monarchy is to serve, to serve the country, the people and not be served in the Disapora is its about reclaiming ones own birth right.
The United House of Ancestry Commission and Association on Nobility support monarchy not only because of tradition or circumstance. We believe monarchy to be the best form of government for all of the governed.
Objectivity, honesty, and sincerity are best assured by monarchy. Monarchy by no means precludes democracy, in practice.
We support the present heads of exiled or non-reigning Houses as de jure sovereigns, this recognition being co-existent with the realization that the institution is more important than a particular claimant.
A monarch through the vestiges of that misunderstood Divine right and because of his symbolic paternal role, faces a higher responsibility than a politician.
The justification of the hereditary succession is not only in the upbringing of the future king, not only in the continuity of a line but in the fact that an hereditary ruler does not owe his position to any particular social or interest group, but rather to divine will alone.
The formula "by the Grace of God" is a constant reminder to the sovereign that an accident of birth was responsible for his position and must prove his fitness by ceaseless efforts in the cause of justice.
The following goals have been maintained faithfully as a continuation of the “Royalty and Nobility,” through some of the following activities:
To re-establish and promote the social institutions of monarchy and nobility and practice their principles in a world which has largely forgotten them: chivalry, honor, duty, loyalty, respect, enlightenment, tolerance.
The identification, publication and dissemination of genealogical and heraldic articles and resources.
The promulgation of chivalric ideals and awards.
Communication of activities related to Nobility and Heraldry with every known head of Imperial, Royal, and Serene Houses and Monarchist/Nobility Organizations throughout the world.
The United House of Ancestry is open to all descendants of the nobility, regardless of their nationality, religion or political affiliation, as long as they support our activities .
Some members are descendants of the most ancient nobility and have taken a very great interest in the activities of the Commission; among its many chivalric and heraldic interests.
Speaking of genealogy, nobility and chivalry today seems almost anachronistic even if it shows interest of particular importance due to historical and cultural sensitivity towards the best traditions of consciousness to live the cult of lineage, feelings of honor, duty and the country, though all this has almost lost its memory in an era in which ideals and values seem definitely confused.
The Commission, lover of history, is an organization devoted to the preservation and promotion of the monarchical system of government and the principle of monarchy and to promote and defend the theory of monarchy as a superior governmental form.
The nobiliary and chivalry distinctions represented, and fortunately represent again - a display and an expression of Institutions that have been founded in the History. They have left lasting traces of memorable events, an heritage of cultural and religious traditions that today, after many centuries are still alive.
We have not to forget, that the Aristocracy, the Chivalry, together with the moral nobility, ever have been able to confirm their own role in any age, in a social
background, as their origin goes back till ancient ages and it is tied up to the civil, politic and religious Nation development.
It is our duty to spread historic, heraldic, genealogy, chivalry and noble knowledge anywhere there is ignorance about the above mentioned matters.
The Commission intends to stay neutral on the issue of juridical recognition of reigning and Sovereign Houses, which is of exclusive competence of their respective State Systems and desires exclusively to support their traditional humanitarian commitment at the service of international collaboration.
In the international political field, the Commission is neutral, impartial and non-political. Because of its neutrality, impartiality and non-political character, the Commission can act as a mediator when a State requires its intervention to resolve a dispute.
The Commission supports heraldic research, genealogy, and a promulgation of historic and cultural values. The Commission has no authority to grant coats of arms, but stands ready to help others with petitions.
PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION
The purpose of the United House of Ancestry to unite and prolong the legacy of the old Noble families spreading now all over the world.
The private apolitical body, ecumenical, devoted to the preservation and promotion of the monarchical system of government and the principle of monarchy.
The Commission maintains selective members and is governed by its Statutes and By-Laws.
House of Ancestry genealogical and Colonial Historical consultants have been researching and studying for years.
These persons are recognized experts in their respective fields of study, or significant leaders in the respective regions in which they are active in the hereditary community.
The directing principle of member?s impartiality and the preservation of a coherent standard are fundamental components guiding the resolutions of the
The Commission is to inform on the legitimacy and claims of reigning and non-territorial sovereign Royal Houses.
The Commission only recognizes those organizations that pertain to the system of each Royal House. Legitimate Order of Chivalry or nobility is persons who have achieved Knightly Rank in a recognized international Chivalry or Religious Order and recognized public Royal Houses.
In the Commission view, some organizations create a false identities in order to satisfy this requirement and give themselves apparent legitimacy; We do not partake in any of this nonsense.
The so called "claimants" are creators of fables. That they gain acceptance on the internet or edit entries in Wikipedia does not make them real. Historical fact is verified through scientific reconnaissance and solid evidence, not via "endorsement " from a self-appointed "authority" or by somebody who happens to be descended from royalty.
The United House of Ancestry neither register no certifies grants, nobility or arms for members. We do not render opinions as to the legitimacy of specific titles of nobility claimed by this or that person. It often occurs that one publisher or fount of honor "recognizes" a certain person's title while another does not.
Today, we very much part of modern American and African society and do not maintain their former privileges although their family names, titles and coats of arms are still protected.
Only sovereigns with legitimate rights to bestow nobility) can and have the solemn right to do so. The Commission welcomes of "Jure Sanguinis" families of African nobility and the class members "on merits" of relevant families, which, though not noble, they share the values and committed to serve the same ideals. Even so, proof must be backed up solid evidence.
No one can just assume a title of nobility, imperial or otherwise, merely because it is vacant or no one is presently using it.
Only a true sovereign, regnant or "de jure," can create, restore or rehabilitate a title or bestow upon a person a real and true knighthood or nobility.
All honors must spring from a genuine, authentic source or fountain of honor otherwise it must be rejected as worthless pretense.
Genealogy, being as it is the study of individual people and their relationships within the social unit of the family, parallels and in some degree reflects the history of mankind.
Practically every great civilization on earth has found root in the organization of the family, and, thus, each history is composed of many family histories.
The royal pedigrees of the African emperors and monarchs are but another form of the histories of those civilizations.
And even today it may be seen that the history of America is not dissimilar to the history of any of great colonial American families.
The study of family history, or genealogy, is perhaps one of the most ancient of human interests.When a person in search of his ancestors or genealogy, seek to know the origins of their family, perhaps with the hidden personal desire to discover royal blood or the coat of arms of his family.
Where genealogical facts are few, and these located in the remote past, reconstruction of family history is often more imaginative than correct.
Whenever a noble, royal, or academic claim is made by a candidate, we are tasked with the obligation and duty to inquire and discover whether the claim is valid or not.
This is to protect the good name and reputation of the genuine reigning or not non reigning territorial sovereigns, to protect the reputation of the United House of Ancestry on Nobility and its Royal Patrons.
The Executive Committee is composed of the President, Director of Research, African and American History Special Advisers, Genealogy Forensic and historians from many African and American Tribes .
"Royal Patrons" are voluntary heads of reigning or formerly reigning royal houses whose interest is based on the ideals of chivalry, aristocracy and for the Defense of America and Africa's Nobility
