This template creates a standard line for succession boxes.

Mostly deprecated, the succession box template ought to be used only for the simplest succession lines. These are single succession lines showing nothing more than a succession of three people holding exactly the same title. For succession lines sharing cells with other lines, for new or expired titles, for incumbencies or vacancies, for titular rulers or pretenders, for titles which change their name before or after the subject, and for lines requiring other additional information, the specialised templates of the s-start series should be used instead of this one.


{{Succession box
| before = 
| title  = 
| years  = 
| after  = 

A succession box may start with a single {S-start} and end with one {S-end}.

Within each succession box, one or more lines may be created. One {Succession box} is used for each line, and parameters are used to insert data into the template: "before" for the predecessor of the subject, "title" for the subject's title, "years" for the time period during which they held the title, and "after" for the name of their successor.
