~ Higher Nobility Reforms ~
Seeing that the current Higher Nobility of Austria-Hungary is far too large for its supposedly "prestigous" level, I as Ministerpresident have decided to enact reforms, subject to the Kaiser's approval that would drastically reshape the current posts and restablish its prominance within the Empire. Some of the positions have been merged with the official grand title of His Majesty the Kaiser, others have been completely scrapped and compensation will be paid for anyone who was associated with the post.
With this revised Higher Nobility, I hope that a sense of restored prestigiousness may return to it and for a greater distribution of representation among the lower nobles of the Empire. I encourage any prospective nobles to take no delay in applying for these new positions within the Higher Nobility.
