Prince of Shireroth
The title Prince of Shireroth (Princess of Shireroth for women) is the highest title of imperial peerage under the Kaiseress of Shireroth. It was created by Kaiseress Noor (Imperial Decree 911) in 1648:
The degree, title and dignity of Prince of Shireroth belongs to each male person descended from Us, and to each previously reigning Kaiser still alive.
The degree, title and dignity of Princess of Shireroth belongs to each female person descended from Us, and to each previously reigning Kaiseress still alive.
The style for a Prince or Princess of Shireroth is Imperial Highness.
Primus inter pares for the Princes and Princesses of Shireroth is the Imperial Prince of Shireroth, as established under Imperial Decree 776.
This was later clarified in imperial decrees to refer to legitimate descendants, and princes have also been created by imperial decrees, as well as the necessity to remain a citizen of Shireroth to hold the title.
Legal spouses of a Prince or a Princess are titled Prince or Princess by courtesy but are not regarded or titled "Prince of Shireroth"
Legitimate children of former kaisers may prefix their names of The Prince or The Princess in accordance with Imperial Decree 559, e.g. Prince Montgomery Wythe, and are considered Princes of Shireroth, if born during the kaisership of the kaiser from which they derived their princely claim. That is the reason Prince Alexander's son Chrysostom Wythe (a grandson of Kaiser Wythe) is not titled Prince, as he was born after the reign of Kaiser Wythe had ended, but why Montgomery Wythe is a Prince of Shireroth.

- The grandchildren of Kaiseress Noor:

- The great-great grand children of Kaiseress Noor:

Note that Noor's children with Noah, Vilhjálm and Esther, are deemed illegitimate in Shirerithian law (see Marriage of Kaiseress Noor and King Noah of Elwynn). As such, they are not Princes of Shireroth. They claim these titles, nonetheless, as they regard the annulment of Noah's marriage with Noor to be illegal. As such, in Franco-Batavia and Stormark, the following also claim the title Prince or Princess of Shireroth by virtue of being descendant of Kaiseress Noor:
- Vilhjálm Daniel Gudrödar, born 1635, son of Kaiseress Noor
- Esther Fatima Gudrid, born 1638, daughter of Kaiseress Noor, renounced, however, the title Princess of Shireroth in 1685, extending to her descendants too
Furthermore, Hallbjörn Haraldsson claims the title by virtue of being a former kaiser. In Shirerithian law, his demotion from nobility and loss of citizenship removed him from that title. Although the title Prince of Shireroth is never extended to spouses of title holders, Esther's husband Arkadius IV of Batavia claims the title Prince of Shireroth.
