When you first learned how to measure, you were probably introduced to the rule. The ruler is the most common measuring device. The title lasted just over a century until 1918, but it was never clear which region formed the « Austrian Empire ». When Francis accepted the title in 1804, the Habsburg lands as a whole were called the Austrian Empire. Empire could literally be translated as « empire » (by analogy to « kingdom ») or « imperial ship »; The term refers specifically to « the territory ruled by an emperor, » making it a bit more general than an empire that had connotations of world domination in 1804. Present-day Austria (as opposed to the Habsburg lands complex as a whole) had been part of the Archduchy of Austria since the 15th century, and most other parts of the empire had their own institutions and territorial history. There were some attempts at centralization, especially during the reign of Maria Theresa and her son Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor. These efforts were completed in the early 19th century. When the countries of the Crown of St. Stephen (Hungary) received self-government in 1867, the non-Hungarian parts were called the Austrian Empire. They were officially called « kingdoms and countries represented in the Reichsrat ». The title of Emperor of Austria and the Associated Empire were both abolished at the end of World War I in 1918, when German Austria became a republic and the other kingdoms and countries represented in the Reichsrat established their independence or membership in other states. In 1345, the Serbian king Stefan Uroš IV was appointed.

Dušan was crowned Emperor (Tsar) and as such was crowned at Easter 1346 in Skopje by the newly created Serbian Patriarch, as well as by the Patriarch of Bulgaria and the Autocephalous Archbishop of Ohrid. Its imperial title was recognized by Bulgaria and various other neighbors and trading partners, but not by the Byzantine Empire. In its final simplified form, the Serbian imperial title was « Emperor of the Serbs and Greeks » (цар Срба и Грка in new Serbian). It was only used by Stefan Uroš IV Dušan and his son Stefan Uroš V in Serbia (until his death in 1371) and then died out. A half-brother of Dušan, Simeon Uroš, and then his son Jovan Uroš claimed the same title until he abdicated in 1373 while reigning as dynasties in Thessaly. The « Greek » component of the Serbian imperial title indicates both the domination over the Greeks and the derivation of the imperial tradition of the Romans. A renegade Hungarian-Serbian commander, Jovan Nenad, who claimed to be a descendant of Serbian and Byzantine rulers, called himself emperor. There are many websites and stores where you can buy quality rules. Office supply stores and online office supply retailers often offer bulk packaging of unbreakable rules that can withstand normal daily use.

Since May 3, 1814, the Sovereign Principality of Elba was created into a non-hereditary miniature monarchy under the exiled French Emperor Napoleon I. Napoleon I was allowed to enjoy the imperial title for life by the Treaty of Fontainebleau (April 27). The islands were not turned into an empire. The Ottoman rulers bore several titles indicating their imperial status. These included: Sultan, Khan, ruler of the imperial house of Osman, sultan of the sultans, khan of Khan, Padishah, commander of the believers and successor of the prophet of the Lord of the Universe, protector of the holy cities of Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem, emperor of the three cities of Constantinople, Adrianopole and Bursa, and many other cities and countries. [Citation needed] If you were to align your ruler to a standard envelope #10, you would find that the shortest side is 4 and 1/8 inches and the long side is 9 and 1/2 inches. Look at the back of the ruler. Find the edge marked 32 and search again between the numbers « 5 » and « 6 ». The rulers of Balhae (698-926) were internally called Seongwang (성왕; 聖王; lit. « Holy King »).

[38] When Constantinople was occupied, the pretenders to the imperial succession stylized themselves as emperors in the main centers of resistance: the Lakarid dynasty in the Kingdom of Nicaea, the Menenid dynasty in the Empire of Trebizond, and the Doukid dynasty in the despotate of Epirus. In 1248, Epirus recognized the emperors of Nicaea who reconquered Constantinople in 1261. The trapezactic emperor officially submitted to Constantinople in 1281,[5] but often ignored conventions by naming himself emperor at Trapezunt. Look at the rule scale above. A small number is marked at the end of the rule (red numbers). This number indicates the number of divisions per inch. When referring to fractions, always use the collapsed name. In 1802, the newly formed Nguyễn Dynasty asked the Chinese Emperor Jiaqing for canonization and received the title of Quốc Vương (國王, king of a state) and the name of the country As An Nam (安南) instead of Đại Việt (大越).

To avoid unnecessary armed conflicts, Vietnamese leaders accepted this in diplomatic relations and used the title of emperor only domestically. However, Vietnamese leaders have never accepted the vassal relationship with China and have always refused to come to Chinese courts to pay tribute to Chinese leaders (a sign of vassal acceptance). China has waged a series of wars against Vietnam throughout history, settling for the tributary relationship after each failure. The Yuan dynasty under Kublai Khan fought three wars against Vietnam to force it into a vassal relationship, but after successive failures, Kublai Khan`s successor, Temür Khan, eventually settled for a tributary relationship with Vietnam. Vietnam sent tributary missions to China once every three years (with a few periods of disruption) until the 19th century, when the Sino-French War replaced the France to control North Vietnam. [Citation needed] Post-Vedic emperors often used different titles. South Asia was ruled from the 14th century to the 19th century mainly by Muslim rulers who used the title padishah (or Badshah). Towards the end of Mughal rule, the Maratha Empire was founded and its rulers held the title of Chhatrapati.

When the British ruled India, they adopted the additional title Kaisar-i-Hind. In everyday language, the Byzantine imperial title evolved from simply « emperor » (basileus) to « emperor of the Romans » (basileus tōn Rōmaiōn) in the 9th century to « emperor and autocrat of the Romans » (basileus kai autokratōr tōn Rōmaiōn) in the 10th century. [4] In fact, none of these additional epithets and titles (and others) had ever been completely discarded. It`s likely that your rule will specify « inch » or « cm » to make it easier to determine which side is which. The first Austrian emperor was the last holy roman emperor, Francis II. Faced with Napoleon`s aggression, Francis feared for the future of the Holy Roman Empire. He wanted to retain his imperial status and that of his family in the event of the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire, as was the case in 1806 when an Austrian-led army suffered a humiliating defeat at the Battle of Austerlitz. [9] After that, victorious Napoleon set out to dismantle the old empire by separating much of the empire and transforming it into a separate Confederation from the Rhine. With the considerably reduced size of his imperial empire, Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor, became Francis I, Emperor of Austria. The new imperial title may have seemed less prestigious than the old one, but Francis` dynasty continued to rule from Austria and a Habsburg monarch was always an emperor (emperor) and not just a king (king). According to historian Friedrich Heer, the Austrian Habsburg Emperor remained an « auctoritas » of a particular kind. He was « the grandson of the Caesars », he remained the patron saint of the Holy Church.

[10] Ngô Quyền, the first ruler of Đại Việt as an independent state, used the title Vương (王, king). .
