The sarda are the supreme leaders of the Sanmra government, as well as the formal representatives of Sanmra internationally. The current sarda are Tien'a ni Edara and her husband Ledan rıl Losa.

Etymology

Persistent urban legends link the etymology of the term "sarda" to Modern Tirina "sa ada" ("ruler-woman"), referencing the first sarda, Tirina. However, there is little to no historical evidence that this is the case. The actual origins of the word are obscure, though most linguists agree it is likely descended from the Old Tirina word sash (clan leader). (Coincidentally, this is also the origin of the term "sa", so the urban legend is in some degree correct!)

History

The origins of the modern institution date back to before the founding of the Sanmra nation. Many of the scattered dalar groups were family- or clan-oriented, with a single leader who took input from the community at large, but ultimately was the one responsible for decision-making, justice, and other such tasks. When the Council of Elders, itself a collection of these sashmiz (clan leaders), chose Tirina to serve as its head, they granted her similar powers over the confederated groups as a whole, a sort of sash of sashmiz, a leader of leaders.

Initially, this authority was invested in a single individual, but over time, it developed into the modern pair of equal rulers.
