Since the other sons of the Elf-Friend didn’t have children of their own, the only Quarter-human grandson Yevgeni IX seized the throne after a short civil war, the Elfson War. He had to promise that his children or descendants would never gain the throne themselves at the end of the Elfson War.
754: The ‘Second Holy Law’ of Klavek now says clearly that, whoever ascends the throne and keeps it has to be born by a full blooded human woman (to prevent things like Yevgeni VIII or elves like Yevgeni IX), has to be still alive (to prevent undead like Fjodor III / VI) and never been dead for more then two days. Is has to be noted that the law has been changed since the days of Leo V, who had been resurrected immediatly by his wish and who would nowadays still be king by the law. Furthermore no tsar is allowed to have a deal with a devil, demon or other evil outsider to prevent another soulbound tsar.
