The Holy Orenian Emperor (High Imperial: Imperator Orenorum, literally: "Emperor of the Humans") is the ruler of the Holy Orenian Empire. The title has been faded in and out of existence, generally moving between that of a hereditary autocracy and that of an elected monarch, depending on the particular incarnation of the Empire it applies to. The noble house that has held the title has also changed back and forth considerably over the last two centuries. The first Holy Orenian Emperor and creator of the First Empire was Exalted Godfrey, also known as Godfrey I, of the House of Horen.

The title is held in conjunction with the rule of the Kingdom of Oren, the Kingdom of Renatus and the Kingdom of Salvus. Typically, the Holy Orenian Emperor is the most powerful man in the known world, possessing of a vast network of lands, armies, coin, and other resources, ruling over the most powerful of the world's states and its singular superpower. In practice however, a Holy Orenian Emperor is only as strong as his army and alliances made him. When an emperor was unable to serve due to incapacity, youth or absence, he would appoint a trusted regent to rule in his stead with a similar level of power and authority. If this regent was also a prince, he would be entitled with the position of Prince Regent.

The consort of the Holy Orenian Emperor is known as the Empress-consort.

The title has belonged to members of House Horen, Carrion, Chivay, Marna, Cascadia and Joannes.

First Protectorate (1619)

Robert of Marna, the second and last surviving son of John III, Holy Orenian Emperor, seized the title of Lord Protector of Oren and established a stable government in the wake of John V's death. The Lord Protector was overthrown by the scheming of the King of Hanseti-Ruska, Stephen I and other powerful vassals. His other nephew, Peter II, ascended to the throne upon his resignation, continuing the Sixth Empire as it had begun.

The House of Horen-Marna proclaimed their right and ascension Imperial throne after Antonius I, Emperor of Man's much-contested dissolution of the Empire of Man in the prelude to the The War of the Two Emperors'.

House of Cascadia (1720 - 1725)

The House of Cascadia was a branch of the dissolved House of Horen, led by Godfrey II of Cascadia. The reign of Godfrey II began upon the triumphant end of the War of the Two Emperors, where he was declared the true Holy Orenian Emperor soon after his victory. Under his rule, the eighth imperium was established. After his reign his younger brother John VII ascended the imperial throne but only ruled for a year before declaring the empire a democracy and abdicating the throne.

House of Joannes (1725 - 1731)

Selected as compromise candidates for the throne by High Pontiff, Daniel VI, the House of Joannes were ostensibly an off-shoot of the House of Alstion. However, after the death of their only monarch, the family would be alleged to be bastards of Cesarina Louise and Laertes de Falstaff. However, the opposing argument contends that these claims by Laertes de Falstaff were likely encouraged by the new Lord Protector, Adrian de Sarkozy, as a way of asserting his nascent government's legitimacy.
