The Divine Right of Kings
Emperor William IX
The current emperor
The current leader of the Xanarian Empire. Well recognized throughout the world, as his face is on 1 of every 3 coins in use. William claims to be the last true descendant of Xanar.
There is legitimate debate as to how much power he controls and how much comes from his alliance with the Church. In either case, a large number of “independent” nations pay him tribute and listen to whatever he says.
