An emperor was a male monarch, usually the sovereign ruler of an empire or another type of imperial realm.[source needed]

An empress, the female equivalent, could be an emperor's wife (empress consort) or, in Queen Victoria's case, a woman who ruled in her own right (empress regnant). (TV: Tooth and Claw) An empress' husband was sometimes an emperor consort. (AUDIO: Empire of the Racnoss) Emperors were generally recognised to be of a higher honour and rank than kings.[additional sources needed]
