The Emperor of the Terran Dominion is the absolute monarch of the Terran Dominion. A hereditary imperial title and office proclaimed by Arcturus Mengsk in March 2500 after the Fall of Tarsonis.[1][2] In 2505, Arcturus was killed in the Battle of Korhal, and his son Valerian Mengsk took the position.[3]

During the Defenders of Man Insurgency, pressure from the Defenders of Man caused Emperor Valerian Mengsk to state his intention to step down as Emperor of the Terran Dominion, leaving the state of the throne uncertain.[4]
