De Jure
In law and government, DE JURE (/deɪ ˈdʒʊrɪ/ ; Latin: de iure, "in law") describes practices that are legally recognized by official laws. In contrast, de facto ("in fact" or "in practice") describes situations that are generally known to exist in reality, even if not legally authorized. The terms are often used to contrast different scenarios, for example, "I know that, de jure, this is supposed to be a parking lot, but now that the flood has left four feet of water here, it’s a de facto swimming pool". EXAMPLESIt is possible to have multiple simultaneous conflicting (de jure) legalities, possibly none of which is in force (de facto). After seizing power in 1526, Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi made his brother, Umar Din , the lawful (de jure) Sultan
Sultan
of Adal . Ahmad, however, was in practice (de facto) the actual Sultan, and his brother was a figurehead
