Lord of Muschamp Alley
|HIH Crown Princess Caroline|
|20 January 2013|
|Term length||No set term|
|Inaugural holder||Sir Gregory Allen, KOM|
The Lord of Muschamp Alley is a title automatically assumed by the Heir to the Throne of Austenasia, originally granted by the Midget Master to denote the responsibility of preventing the pupils of Muschamp Primary School in Carshalton from obstructing an alleyway that runs near their school and so ensuring that pupils of Rushy Meadow Primary (school of the Midget Empire) could travel through it. However, since July 2006 the title has in practise been a mere honorific.
In April 2006, a war broke out between the Midget Army and some Muschampers over whether or not pupils of Rushy Meadow should be permitted to travel through Muschamp Alley on their way home from school as a shortcut. A Midget military victory resulted in the Muschampers surrendering, acknowledging Rushy Meadow superiority over Muschamp, and promising to let Rushy Meadow pupils use Muschamp Alley whenever they wished. Midget Master Jonathan granted Commander Gregory the title Lord of Muschamp Alley and charged him with ensuring that all Rushy Meadow pupils would have free passage through the alley. However, this duty was only performed until July 2006, when the Midget Master and most of the Midget Army left the school.
Commander Gregory (knighted into the Order of the Bullmastiff in 2009) retained the title until 3 January 2011, when the Fifth Midget Master granted it as an honorific to Jonathan, now Emperor of Austenasia. The day afterwards, an Act of Parliament was passed uniting the title with the position of Austenasian Heir to the Throne, meaning that it passed to Jonathan's sister Crown Princess Caroline when he became Emperor in January 2013.
