Emhyr triumph Novigrad

Triumph of Nilfgaard in Novigrad (by Marcin Karolewski)

The Imperator of Nilfgaard, often referred to simply as the Emperor (in Nilfgaardian dialect Ker'zaer [1]) is a title of the absolutist ruler in the Empire of Nilfgaard. Although there is big number of vassals, barons, counts, senators and princes in the realm, they have small impact on the rule of state, but on the other hand the Trade Corporation play a much larger role.

History Edit
