History

Federation historians are unsure when exactly the title was added to the rank structure of the Trade Federation. At some point before the introduction of the Duceroyal title, the title Magistrate was used to signify the Second-in-Command of the Trade Federation. It is suggested that the term Duceroy was added under the reign of Viceroy Corbin Esco, but due to the lack of evidence, the issue remains unresolved.

Role of the Duceroy

Originally intended to signify just a very important subordinate of the Viceroy, the meaning of the Duceroyal title was changed during the reign of Viceroy Jacob Jansen. The Viceroy increased the importance and power of the Duceroy, essentially making him a co-ruler of the Trade Federation. As a consequence of this the Duceroy, acting as his right hand man and Second-in-Command of the Trade Federation, now answers only to the Viceroy. In the case of a Viceroy's death or resignation it is the Duceroy, when no Regent is appointed, who takes the reigns of the Trade Federation.

Due to the close connection between Viceroy and Duceroy, the latter's duties may vary depending on the former's wishes.
