Overlord General Discussion:

I would consider him more of an emperor. Monarchy is passed down by blood and features ideals such as the Divine Right to Rule, the idea that a specific bloodline and all members of it are inherently sacred.

The Overlord is the ruler of a nation with a strong expansionist policy, colonizing and conquering other countries and adding them to his own. This marks his nation as an Empire.

O' Allah, save Egypt
An empire (as in, a state ruled by an emperor) is a monarchy, though. And not all monarchies are hereditary or uphold "divine right to rule" (modern constitutional monarchies, anyone?), either; you can have elective monarchies, or even monarchies where succession is determined by which of the would-be successors wins/survives a battle to the death between them.

I think we need a Total War mod for this game. tongue That'd be fun!
