What is the difference between an Emperor and a King?

Shawon has asked me this tricky question in class. To be honest, I wasn’t certain of the answer and had to do some research.

I have attempted to answer Shawon’s question. If anyone can give a better answer then please feel free to comment!

An Emperor is the head (leader) of an Empire and King is the head of a Kingdom.

So in order to understand what this means you need to know what an ’empire’ and a ‘kingdom’ is.

An empire is a  made up of different countries or states, held together and ruled by the strongest nation in the group. History has seen the rise and fall of many great empires, such as those of Egypt, Rome, Germany, and Japan.
An emporer is the ruler of an empire, or group of nations or states.

A kingdom is usually just one country ruled by a King or Queen.

A king usually rules only one area or people, but an emporer rules over several.

I hope that helps you Shawon!
