* While King Tikomen doesn't seem to have ruled a physical nation in [[Literature/ChildrenOfTheRedKing]] or it is long gone, he otherwise hits all the notes. His ten children each inherited one of his supernatural powers and went on to form the lion's share of the modern supernatural community.
* [[Literature/TheYoungAncients]] gives us Cordes, first king of Noram. Besides forming a vast empire and giving rise to the [[SuperpowerfulGenetics nobility]] he is famous for destroying a stealth bomber with his magical powers. A feat no one has since managed in his fantasy kingdom.

* In ''Literature/HonorHarrington'', Roger Winton serves as this for [[TheKingdom the Star Kingdom of Manticore]], having previously served as Chief Administrator of the colony and having the good sense and foresight to [[CompoundInterestTimeTravelGambit invest money]] so that the colonists wouldn't be bankrupt. Given that the series takes places in the future where humanity has colonized the stars and there are varied and assorted governments, a few of these types have emerged. Two of the prime examples are [[BunnyEarsLawyer Gustav Anderman]], mercenary and founder of the Andermani Empire who believed he was the reincarnation of Frederick the Great; and Austin Grayson, founder of the planet which bears his name and chief saint of the religion he founded there.

* UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington, the first president of the United States. In fact, when the other founding fathers were designing the new governmental system, the office of president was specifically based upon the kind of leader that Washington was. So he was the first president, and the office of president was based on him.

So he was the first president, and the office of president was based on him. This is likely, not true, the office of president was created after the first US government was deemed a dismal failure and was mostly designed as a check on the powers of Congress and was originally meant to have very little powers of its own other than to oppose and carry out the will of Congress. It is only thanks to power-creep and a very open-ended interpretation of the constitution that the office has accrued as much power as it has.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has numerous examples, mainly from the rich {{Backstory}}.
** Ysgramor created the earliest empire of men in Tamriel, after he and his 500 companions traveled to Skyrim from Atmora. They slaughtered the [[ScrewYouElves native Falmer]] and expanded into High Rock and Morrowind at the height of the empire.

The [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]] rule in his name (even though [[TheRashomon they very likely may be]] responsible for his death) and he is revered as a saint in the Tribunal Temple.

** St. Alessia, the "Slave Queen," led a human uprising against their Ayleid elf masters and created the Alessian Empire, the first empire of men out of Cyrodiil.
