Meaning of Emperor

What is Emperor:

Emperor is how the head of government, state and military of a set of conquered peoples and territories is designated.

The word emperor derives from the Latin verb I will rule which means "command". Formerly the emperor was defined by his power and especially by his military command capacity with which he conquered his territories. That is why this term was later designated for those who ruled vast territories that together were called empire.

  • Nero (37 AD-68 AD)
