Emperor (from the Roman title Imperator, meaning one with authority to command an army) is the title of an autocratic ruler of a large nation, typically one that has conquered several other nations and declared itself an empire. The feminine version of Emperor is Empress.

Occasionally, words stemming from Caesar (after Gaius Julius Caeser who was responsible for starting the Imperial Cycle in the Roman Empire) such as Tsar and Kaiser are used interchangeably with Emperor.
