As a semi-absolute monarchy whose first Emperor thought he was a reincarnation of Frederick the Great, the Empire had considerable tolerance for the quirks of its rulers. Even by those standards, Gustav VI went over the line. His habit for talking to his favorite rose bush was well-known, but when he tried to appoint it Chancellor of the Empire, he was quietly removed from office. As a childless only son, he was ultimately succeeded by his sister, who had herself legally declared a man by the Imperial Council, preventing a possible war for the throne. (HH6)
