[55.] HOW KINGS SHOULD MAKE CONFIRMATIONS IN THEIR OWN KINGDOMS

[55.1] How kings should make confirmations in their own kingdoms343 is also easily evident to the dictator, unless he lacks natural talent.

[55.2] For where 'imperial'344 was said above, the dictator may say 'royal', and so on for the other terms. And where the emperor confirms kings, a king can confirm dukes or other princes. In the preamble which followed, where it is said: "towers over the whole world",345 the dictator may say: 'assigns the rights of his kingdom', and so by prudent and regular variation he will be able to fulfill his intention.

[55.3] Dukes, marquises, and palatine counts rarely make solemn confirmations, if ever. But if it is fitting for a dictator to do so, let him be prudent in varying.
