Edit: Damn, but that doesn't prove it either. As the head of the State she can change thing, like, for example, who does what. I mean, she just appointed his son as head of a family in a Clan. She can certainly put someone in a charge that wasn't actually part of the Celestial order at all.
I mean the Toturi dynasty named Fortune a heimin, the scandal.
Boom, she made a legal error that was a misjudgement of her authority at best, and an open attempt to subvert the only man with authority in that position wrongly and illegally at worse.
She defines the legally of any action. That's the whole point in being emperor (or a deluded dictator
). If she appoint someone else to the position then its legal. If that made a certain fellow fell bad about himself, well, too bad but that's not proof that she made a mistake. Just that someone didn't get the position he felt entitled to
Dude, I had actually got happy. Don't play with my scorpion feelings
That's not how being empress works. When a previous, AND INFALLIBLE emperor (say Totori) defines the Shogun as a legit role, that means its law. She cant change the position establish by Toturi, no matter how much juju she actually has.
ITS LITERALLY AN OOC GM BOOK SAYING SHE WAS WRONG AND TAIGO WAS RIGHT! You cant say "your wrong" to the freaking outside material written by the company. She broke Toturi III's acceptance of the role, and contradicted her own acceptance of these rules when Appointing Taigo by ignoring his office. If she openly changed the rules that's one thing, but she didn't, she broke divine, and historical, precedence. Infallibility in emperors, in Rokugan, does not allow that.
Nope, not with the Shogun. She actually CANT go changing laws as that leads to her contradicting herself, by undermining the role of the shogun or by changing the proclamations of previous emperors. He, as shogun, is allowed to challenge ANY change to his authority BY HIS RULES. That makes the argument she can hand wave it a HUGE no no in Rokugan and no empress is above that.
Sorry but no dice there.
