Emperor Ralph Farinella
His Imperial Highness
Defender of Reigns
Protector and Champion of Empress CoCo LaTique
Imperial Prince for Life
Ralph joined the Imperial Court of Buffalo in 2016 during the Reign of Coco LaTique and Thomas Branscum. During his first year, Ralph was instrumental in helping the Imperial Court of Buffalo and Reign 26 more than quadruple the amount of school supplies collected from the previous year during the annual “Back to Skool” School Supply Drive. Ralph organized the “Big Apple Raffle”, a Fundraiser for the Imperial Court of Buffalo in which the winner won Air Fare and a Two-night stay at the Host Hotel for The Imperial Court of New York’s Night of a Thousand Gowns. This fundraiser not only was able to be cross promoted by the Imperial Courts of Buffalo and New York, it showed his ability to work with multiple courts within the system.
For his support of the Imperial Court of Buffalo and especially Empress CoCo LaTique he was given the lifetime title “Defender of Reigns, Protector and Champion of Empress CoCo LaTique for Life”
Ralph moved to Florida where he has continued to support the Imperial Court of Buffalo, even though the requirement of New York residency doesn’t permit him to be a formal member of Buffalo. His Lifetime title does afford him the ability to participate ceremonially and remain connected to the Imperial Court of Buffalo.
Ralph was excited when a Court formed in Florida, however he has found it difficult to participate with the Sun Court due to them being based on the East Coast of Florida while Ralph resides on the West Coast. He hopes by joining the Imperial Court Council as an Heir it will enable him to bring the court system to the West Coast (Sarasota/Tampa/Clearwater) area and expand the system and bring it to the community he lives in.
