Crown kingdom
A king is a ruler of the fourth tier. Kings are the second highest ranked playable rulers. Kings rule over one or more kingdoms, each composed of one or more duchies. Kings can be vassals of powerful emperors, but are more often independent rulers.

Title variantsEdit

Most male rulers of king-rank are known as kings, and most female rulers of king-rank are known as queens. There are, however, several cultural variants which are summarised in the table below:

Culture Male title Female title
Altaic Khan Khanum
Greek Despot Queen
Arabic/Turkish Sultan Sultana
Persian Shah Queen
West African Mansa Sultana
Nahua Tlatoani Tlatoani
Indian Majaraha Majarani

Similarly, republican rulers of king-rank are known by different titles. These take precedence over cultural variants.

Culture/Religion Male title Female title
Muslim Wâli-Malik None
Latin/Byzantine Serene Doge None
Others Prince Mayor None

Note: religous title variants 'trump' cultural ones. For example, a republican ruler of king-rank with Italian culture and Sunni religion will be known as a Wâli-Malik.

Similarly, theocratic rulers of king-rank are known by different titles. These take precedence over cultural variants.

Culture/Religion Male title Female title
Catholic/Orthodox King-Bishop King-Bishop
Muslim Caliph Caliph
