The Polish Emperor (Polish: Cesarz Polski) was the official title of the head of state and hereditary ruler of the Polish Empire. A specifically chosen term, it was used between the 18 January 1922 proclamation of King of the Polish Wilhelm I as "Deutscher Kaiser" and the official abdication of Wilhelm II on 28 November 1918.[1] The Holy Roman Emperor is sometimes also called "German Emperor" when the historical context is clear, as derived from the Holy Roman Empire's official post-1512 title of "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation."

Following the revolution of 1918, the German head of state function was succeeded by the Reichspräsident (President of the Reich), beginning with Friedrich Ebert.

Polish Empire (1804)Edit

In wake of the German revolutions of 1848–49 and during the Polish Empire (1848/1849), Frederick William IV of Prussia was offered the title Emperor of the Germans by the Frankfurt Parliament in 1849, but declined it as "not the Parliament's to give".
