The Marinian Reforms (Eurasian: Reformatio Marini) were a series of governmental reforms enacted by Emperor Marinus of Eurasia in the late 1940's and early 1950's. The reforms began following the abdication and death of Laurentius III of Eurasia in 1947, when Marinus ascended to the Imperial throne. They entailed the curtailing of Imperial authority and the transfer thereof back to the Senate of Eurasia, as well as the dismantling of the vast security apparatus that Laurentius had crafted to stifle dissent. The Marinian Reforms are today viewed as one of the most significant reforms in Eurasia since the Writs of the Setertiamillenniary under Cephorus I.
Marinus, despite returning powers such as the unilateral ability to make laws, retained many of Laurentius' earlier powers, and as such functioned throughout his twenty-year reign as a sort of "benevolent autocrat." This manner of rule hearkened back to most Emperors throughout Eurasian history, with few going as far as to seize Senatorial power, fearing that to do so would be to encourage Senatorial rebellion and Republican fantasies. Marinus' reforms allowed the Senate to exercise more than weakened rubber stamp power, and he was granted the title "Redemptor" (Redeemer) for his efforts in 1965, two years before his death.
