The Council of Noble Officers was a body of noble and military leaders within the government of the Rule of Man, somewhat similar to the Imperial Moot under the later Third Imperium. The Council elected the Emperors of the Rule of Man, but it was mostly an advisory body. It was established under the Articles of Assumption. This Council was based upon the First Imperium's Igsiirdi.

After the death of Empress Elize in -1997, rival factions of the Council elected rival Emperors ruling from Antares and Hub/Ershur, and the Council of Noble Officers divided into two separate bodies meeting on Antares and Hub/Ershur, representing the Antares Imperium and the Hub/Ershur Imperium.
