Sovereignty from Historical Member States


Ignita Veritas United (IVU), as an intergovernmental organization (IGO), was legally and officially established by its constitutional Sovereign Charter treaty, founded by major Historical States of an ancient Royal Alliance, to serve as an effective vehicle to exercise their sovereignty in the modern framework of international law.


The 1969 Convention on the Law of Treaties establishes that “an intergovernmental organization [IGO]” is legally founded by the “constituent instrument” of its Charter as a “treaty” (Articles 2.1(i), 5), which fully “enters into force” exclusively by the sovereign authority of the “negotiating [founding] States” (Articles 24.1-2, 76.1).


It specifically provides that these “rules” for a Charter treaty apply to all “States and other subjects of international law”, thus including sovereign non-territorial (international) Historical States (Article 3(b)).


The 2004 Convention on Jurisdictional Immunities of States thus confirms that an IGO is legally established as an “agency or instrumentality of the State[s] or other entities… of sovereign authority” (Article 1(b)(iii)).


As a result, IVU was founded with full authorities of real sovereignty, giving it the rare and special legal capacity to represent and support sovereign Historical States.  For this reason, although modern IGOs use corporate style logos, IVU is uniquely authorized to have a sovereign royal crown in its official heraldic seal.




Different Jurisdiction of Full Sovereignty


Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is unique as an intergovernmental organization (IGO) which is established in the full Sovereign Jurisdiction of customary international law.  This is different from IGOs based on treaties by modern territorial statutory governments.


Sovereign Jurisdiction is the ancient and timeless form, and higher level, of international law jurisdiction, with higher authority for upholding human rights of the Peoples of the Nations of free and independent States.


Sovereignty is inherently bound by Divine Law as Natural Law as Common Law, which is “customary international law”.  True sovereignty is based upon representing the Nation of the People, not upon legislative statutory governance of a territory of citizens.


As a result, IVU provides the necessary infrastructure and advanced legal foundations to empower independent States, sovereign historical institutions, indigenous nations, and their international alliances, to assert and exercise their official authorities, while maintaining independence from centralized “globalist” establishment systems.




Historical and Indigenous Member States


The United Nations (UN), considered the primary modern forum for diplomatic affairs, only has Member States which are modern territorial countries, and generally excludes historical and indigenous Nation-States, which in rare cases are accepted only as non-voting Observer States.


Ignita Veritas United (IVU), as an intergovernmental organization (IGO), serves as the supporting infrastructure, vehicle for fully exercising sovereignty, and most traditional forum for diplomatic relations, for the full spectrum of all types of States.


Member States of IVU, in addition to territorial countries, are also diverse sovereign historical institutions, indigenous nations, and their international alliances, including those which no longer own nor govern their former territories.


In this way, IVU finally gives a voice to all the Peoples of the Nations, and their history, heritage, culture and traditions, representing all the institutions of humanity, for effective participation in world affairs as essential members of the true international community of Nation States.



Non-Territorial (International) States


International law recognizes the existence of non-territorial (international) States, which can exercise diplomatic status without having any territory (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Articles 1(i), 23.1, 30.1).


This rare type of “State” is called a “subject of international law”, because its sovereignty is established by effect of law, not by holding territory (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 3).


By the “sovereign equality of States” (1970 Cooperation of States, 6th Principle), “All States”, thus including non-territorial, “are… equal members of the international community” (1974 Economic Rights of States, Article 10).



Historical Sovereign Nation States


International law recognizes the diplomatic status of sovereign historical institutions “since ancient times” (1963 Consular Relations, Preamble: ¶1).  It confirms that “all nations from ancient times have recognized… the sovereign equality of States” of “differing constitutional and social systems” including historical (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Preamble: ¶1-3).


It requires that a “State shall not discriminate as between States” including a historical form of statehood (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Article 47.1).  It confirms that “No State shall be subjected to discrimination” based on “differences in political, economic and social systems” including historical statehood (1974 Economic Rights of States, Preamble: ¶3, ¶7; Article 4).


Notice:  Legalization of an historical State is not a claim to govern its former territory in modern times, but only asserts sovereignty as a non-territorial (international) State, as necessary to protect its participation in diplomatic relations, its cultural heritage restoration projects, and the human rights of its Nationals.



Recognition Powers for Sovereignty


Because the IVU Sovereign Charter was established by historical institutions of royalty as its founding “negotiating States” (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 2.1(e)), it uniquely possesses both legal standing and heraldic jurisdiction (Black’s Law 2nd 1910: “Court of Honor”, p.289) to grant official “Sovereign Recognition” to surviving restored kingdoms, principalities and indigenous nations as non-territorial States in diplomatic relations.


IVU and its autonomous Judiciary Courts thus possess the unique legal capacity to issue a valid “Letters Patent” certificate of Sovereign Recognition by royal authority and royal protocols in customary international law, as a “grant by the sovereign… [of] some authority [or] title” as a “royal grant” (Black’s Law 2nd 1910: “Patent: English Law”, p.880; “Royal grants”, p.1046).


As a result, IVU is the only IGO with full Sovereign Jurisdiction and legal authority in customary international law, capable of restoring and legalizing historical and indigenous States, and giving diplomatic status with a real voice in international affairs to such States representing the traditional Nations of their Peoples.
