Two Presidents

The 44th and 45th Foresitters, Barrack Obama and Donald Trump, with their First Ladies at Trump's Swearing-in.

The Foresitter of the Banded Folkdoms of America (FOTBF) is the head of rike and head of steership of the Banded Folkdoms. Right now, the Foresitter is Donald Trump. The Foresitter is chosen by Choosers working on behalf of the Folkdoms every fourth year, and he leads the Wardkeeping branch of the banded steership.

Often called the Leader of the Free World, the Foresitter is among Earth's mightiest indwellers. Among his rights are the spurning of lawrits that the Althing would send forth, and the naming of revestewards and Lawspeakers of the Most High Hove, though the latter he must do with the rede and leave of the Eldermoot. The Foresitter also handles dealings with outlanders, and wields leadership over the Landfyrth, Strikefleet, Loftmight, and Seaguard, which together make up the Weaponmight of the Banded Folkdoms.

The Under-Foresitter is chosen at the same time and in the same way as the Foresitter, and becomes Foresitter if the Foresitter dies, or steps down ere his years are filled. Right now, the Under-Foresitter is Mike Pence.

List of Foresitters of the Banded Folkdoms Edit

In the board below, all of the Foresitters since Washington are listed. Of the forty-four, one of them, Cleveland, is tallied twice, so that today's Foresitter, Donald Trump, is tallied forty-fifth. The names are shown alongside the Foresitters' home Folkdoms, First Ladies, Under-Foresitters, mootband, and the years in which they held ambight.

If a Foresitter is wed, his wife is First Lady; otherwise that falls to another kinswoman, such as a daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, or niece. First Ladies who were not the wife of the Foresitter are marked with a ☆. Foresitters, Under-Foresitters, and First Ladies who died in ambight are marked with a †. Those who stepped down ere their years were filled are marked with a ∅.

All foresitters, save Washington, belonged to a mootband. The Mootrikish band of Jefferson and his followers is not the same as the later mootband, beginning with Lincoln, which was also called Mootrikish.
