What source is used to cite Isard as holding the title of "Empress"? I realize that she was the de facto emperor, and she is a female, therefore making her the de facto empress, but is there actually a place where she is declared "Empress of the Galactic Empire"? As far as I understood, she was also Director of Imperial Intelligence with the powers of Emperor/Empress. The same goes for Pestage; wasn't he simply Grand Vizier of the Galactic Empire with the powers of Emperor?--SOCL 19:38, 15 Oct 2005 (UTC)

  • I've never heard of any of them refered to as emperor or empress either? HavetStorm 16:56, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)
    • As I recall, Isard explicitly refused to call herself an Empress, even though for all intents and purposes that's what she was. 21:10, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
      • I'm pretty sure Pestage is called something like "Interim Emperor" in the Rogue Squadron comics, but calling Isard anything more than "stewardess" is fanon; she's Director of Imperial Intelligence, and remains addressed as "Director Isard" or "Madam Director" until she's appointed head of the Thyferran government. --McEwok 15:20, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Behind the Scenes deletionEdit

I disagree with the Behind the Scenes section. Despite the fact that there are mere planetary emperors, it still seems implied that "emperor" is higher than ordinary monarchs. In real-world politics, there have been leaders that have declared themselves emperors despite the fact that they only ruled a small chunk of land. Examples include Haiti, Korea, and Vietnam. However, this does not mean that the title of emperor is no longer higher than king. I think that when Palpatine chose to be called an "emperor" of his galaxy-wide dictatorship, it clearly showed the title's standing in the GFFA. Palpatine would not have settled for anything but the best. Therefore, the section should be deleted.
