Where did the head of state's title of "Lord Protector" comes from ? I thought it was a strictly british one.--Marc Pasquin 15:48, 19 March 2006 (PST)
- That is indeed where I got it from. I'm quite open to suggestions on an alternative. Zahir 18:44, 19 March 2006 (PST)
- I believe the title predates the First Commonwealth *here*. - AndrewSmith 20:21, 19 March 2006 (PST)
- I know it predates the Commonwealth. Specifically, it was a title taken by nobles exercising an individual regency (i.e. not merely as a member of regency council) while the monarch was still a minor. Arguably the most famous such was Richard Gloucester, later Richard III. Zahir 20:36, 19 March 2006 (PST)
How about "Supreme Leader" (considering he's from a snorist backed party) or if he's more of the martial type "First Marshal" or "Grand Marshal".
There's of course "voivode", originaly a military commander or "Ban", a military governor.

- Well, why not creating a parallel with *here*'s Romania (Ceausescu), and call the chap conducatorul? —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 16:24, 21 March 2006 (PST)
- My romanian is quite rusty, does that mean "the conductor" or "the driver" ? --Marc Pasquin 16:34, 21 March 2006 (PST)
- Whatever the title, I want it to convey the idea of "Regent" rather than "Ruler." That was the legal ficton behind the regime. Zahir 17:40, 21 March 2006 (PST)
