Basic usage:

{{Succession box

The preceded-text and succeeded-text variables are optional. If left blank, they will display "Preceded by" and "Succeeded by", respectively.

If there are existing profiles for the "before" and "after" people, they should be linked to in the template. Eg. instead of just "before = Previous Important Person", it would be better to have "before = [[Person-1000|Previous Important Person]]".

To see an example of this template being used on an actual profile, see the profile for Queen Victoria. The profile is open, so you can go to the edit tab to see the wiki markup used to produce the template.
