Emperor is a PvP-related title in The Elder Scrolls Online.
Ascension and DethroningEdit
The Emperor receives an entire skill line which can only be gained through achieving Emperor status. Powers include being able to make siege more effective, being able to knock down walls quicker, and having voice of the Emperor commands.
An Emperor is dethroned when their alliance loses all the keeps necessary to crown an Emperor, the next time they are killed, log out, or switch zones. The dethroned Emperor will still keep their skill line, although the abilities in it become much less powerful.
