Silver Sun Republic Implementation

Bernardo de'Medici

Chief Executive Leader of the Republic and its founder as implemented in the Crowned Republic era. The position of Doge came about after restructuring the guild to fit the culture and organization of the Kingdom of Hyperion leading up to and during Darkfall Online. The position was originally created as Prime Minister and has merged back with it in the past. The elevation of Radison McDougal to the position of Prime Minister has solidified the practice of maintaining a separate chief executive head of state and an administrative operating executive officer.
