Captain of the Imperial Guard

Somebody's definitely going to go full Neo...
Good thing for the COS that it hasn’t killed any dogs in its simulation yet, otherwise it would be screwed with a pencil.
I do have something to add onto this idea that @TWR97 came up with, hope he likes what I come up with.
I’ve been thinking of a good name for this room and I have a few ideas that I hope you like: the Shrine of Romanitas; the August Chamber of Kaisers, Autokrators and Ceasars (or “the August Chamber” for short); and the Imperial Legacy Memorial (this one could work as the offical name, the other two could be informal names it would be known by).Alright Zen I got an idea that I can see pretty much existing in the Hohenzollernverse
What if, somewhere in either the palace in Berlin or the Blacharnae palace in Constantinople, there is this huge room dedicated to the Roman Emperors (And Empress Regnants) of the past, marble busts of them and mosiac Orthodox styled pictures of them in order of when they ruled, starting from Augustus down to Otto, plus probably the HREmperors in another corner as well as the Western Roman Empire in that same corner, thus representing an unbroken line of monarchs stretching back to Octavian's time and generally a tribute to the great legacy of Rome.
Idk, just an idea I had for my alt timeline, hope you take a look at this suggestion
As for where this could go, I feel like Brandenburg Palace would be most appropriate. Constantinople’s Blachernae Palace could’ve also worked, but I feel Brandenburg deserves it in its restoration.
Since I think the Potsdam Summer Palace is getting rebuilt along Brandenburg Palace, I wonder if the New Potsdam Palce would be a Versallies analogue like the Old Potsdam Palace was in EU4? I decided to put the August Chamber In Brandenburg because I felt it would be a good contrast to the Potsdam Hall of mirrors and the Hohenzollern family tombs nearby, which for the latter is kinda appropriate.
I wonder what ever happened to the merchant republics that existed within the Reich (Socotra, Hansetic League, the Italian Republics etc)? I think they still existed as semi autonomous entities within the Reich until the start of Vicky 2 when they transitioned into aristocratic trade companies or corporations due to Sigismund II Augustin Code reforms, but I wonder what ever became of them and how much influence do they still have in their old lands? Maybe they’d be a lot like New England Wealthy urban class in America: pre industrial merchants and traders that eventually evolve into industrialists and bankers in the early 20th century.
Edit: I also think the August Chamber could work as the Reich's equivalent to America's Mount Rushmore. They are different of course, but the August Chamber does honor past Emperor like Mt Rushmore memorializes significant presidents. This is kinda where I came up with the name “the Shrine of Romanitas” as it’s suppose to be a play on Mt. Rushmore’s nickname “the Shrine of Democracy”.
The August Chamber might also go along with the Humboldt Forum museum that's being built into OTL Berlin City Palace now, assuming if Brandenburg Palace will have something like that museum.
