Only until the Heir at the time is capable of controlling the nation. The Crown is sacred and cannot be changed or moved. The Crown is the law of the land and as sacred as Holy Scripture. It may never leave the Empire. The Monarchy was established not because of a need, but because the Mother Goddess Pallas Athena so choose her descendants to Rule in their own right over all Shinto Peoples. Thus they shall rule in Absolute because the Mother Goddess Protects, Guides, and Defends them.
