The Roman emperor was the ruler of the Roman State during the imperial period (starting at about 27 BC). The Romans had no single term for the office although at any given time, a given title was associated with the emperor. If a man was “proclaimed emperor” this normally meant he was proclaimed augustus, or (for generals) imperator (from which English emperor ultimately derives).
