Random information on the term “Autocrat”:
Autocracy is a system of government in which supreme political power to direct all the activities of the state is concentrated in the hands of one person, whose decisions are subject to neither external legal restraints nor regularized mechanisms of popular control (except perhaps for the implicit threat of coup d’état or rebellion).
In earlier times, the term autocrat was coined as a favorable feature of the ruler, having some connection to the concept of “lack of conflicts of interests” as well as an indication of grandeur and power. The Russian Emperor was styled “Autocrat of all the Russias” as late as the early 20th century.
Autocracy comes from the Ancient Greek autós (“self”) and krátos (“power”, “strength”) from Kratos, the Greek personification of authority. In the Medieval Greek language, the term Autocrates was used for anyone holding the title emperor, regardless of the actual power of the monarch. Some historical Slavic monarchs such as Russian tsars and emperors included the title Autocrat as part of their official styles, distinguishing them from the constitutional monarchs elsewhere in Europe. This is not to be confused with the use of auto- as in automatic or automobile, to refer to the lack of need for human rule or power at all instead of power by one.
