This template creates a single succession box column for incumbents to be used with succession boxes.


The format is {{s-inc|parameter=}}, where parameter= is replaced by one or more of the parameter names shown in the following table. The code without a parameter defaults to Incumbent.

current — Replaces Incumbent with Current holder
recent — Replaces Incumbent with Most recent
heir — Designates the heir-apparent of the current incumbent, thus allowing the succession chain to continue as a list of heirs

Note: Template:s-ttl does not allow for a template to have an incumbent so editors must add "– present" after the first date. If using the "recent" parameter, this is not necessary.

This template allows for multiple row-spans using the parameter |rows=| between the template name and the first parameter.

{{s-ttl | title = [[Queen of the United Kingdom]] | years = 6 February 1952 – present}}
