The Imperial Advisor was head of the Emperor's advisory council and was responsible for making appointments to the court, advising the Emperor in all matters of court, as well as keeping the Emperor informed about all events in the Empire. Because the Imperial Advisor controled the access of the Clans to the Emperor, he had a great deal of political power. [1]

Founding Edit

Lady Doji was the first Imperial Advisor, [2] and since the time of the First Hantei, a Crane was chosen until the early 12th century. [3] This tradition was later not followed, and it was known other Clan's members were appointed to this station.
