Crown empire
An emperor is a ruler of the fifth tier. Emperors are the highest ranked playable rulers. Emperors rule over one or more empires, each composed of one or more kingdoms. Rulers of emperor rank are always independent.

Title variantsEdit

Most male rulers of emperor-rank are known as emperors, and most female rulers of emperor-rank are known as empresses. There are, however, several cultural and religious variants which are summarized in the table below:

Culture Male title Female title
Altaic Khagan Khatun
German Kaiser Kaiserin
Greek Basileus Basilissa
Russian Tsar Tsaritsa
Turkish Padishah Empress
Persian Shahanshah Empress
Arabic Badshah Empress
Nahua Huetlatoani Huetlatoani
Indian Samrat Samrajni

Similarly, republican rulers of emperor-rank are instead known by the title of Grand Prince. This takes precedence over cultural variants.
