So if a faction wins the Imperial Crown, wouldn't it make sense for the respective King/Queen of that faction to become Emperor/Empress and not a player?

I know that the top player in the winning faction will be crowned Emperor/Empress, but I don't think that faction's King/Queen will be too happy.

The Emperors will come and go on the throne, the faction leaders will stay. Theirs is the stable and safer position, permanent power in their own faction and the power behind the Imperial throne when their faction holds it.

One could also say that the faction leaders are too important for the continuation of their faction's unity to be endangered on the battlefields of blood-drenched Cyrodiil.

From an in-universe point of view, if one faction would eventually win and things would stabilize, the faction leader could always arrange an "accident" that would remove the Emperor so that they could take the throne themselves - on the other hand, the factions are always compromises and leaders of the other races in their faction might not be ready to accept the faction leader on the throne, too much power in one person's hands.

Hentmereb,

After reading your last paragraph, I have decided to let you be crowned Emperor. That is if I end up joining the Aldmeri Dominion and if we win the Imperial seat :P

Also the player emperor/empress give extra bonus in battlefield.

Quote:Become Emperor

In The Elder Scrolls Online, the highest-ranking player of an alliance is crowned Emperor when their alliance takes control of the Imperial City. You aren’t just fighting for your alliance; you’re fighting for the opportunity to be crowned Emperor, yourself.

Emperors gain special abilities that increase their prowess on the battlefield. They are true leaders of their alliance, and a force to be reckoned with.

An Emperor’s hold on power can be tenuous. Can your alliance protect all of the strongholds necessary to maintain your dominance? How long will your reign as Emperor last before an ambitious foe cuts you down?

i still dont like that only one of the races leaders is beeing named. Especialy Jorunn. Why its the EBONHEART pact. Not that i want a filthy ash sucker to lead the alliance. And i realy like Jorun. But still id rather have the Great Moot as a whole, with leaders from all 3 races.

On the matter of emporer, well see. It is a title for a Warrior, not for a politician. You will surpass them in one way or another. But it wont last for long.
Also when you see how some factions handle their leaders, this is unsuprising. Emeric isnt even a royal, hes a tradet. I guess that kind of gives you the right to surpass him.

It needs highest-ranking player of own Alliance, is possible to get the Rudy Thorne (crown). In otherword, middle or low ranking have no chance to get...

Surely we will get to know the leaders of the races, not just factions, too at some point.

as far as it stands it seems like jorunn is the one "leader figure" of the pact.

Yes, but the other species making up the faction will pretty certainly have their own leaders beside the one main leader for the whole faction.

One could imagine the Redguard the Daggerfall Covenant leader Emeric married could be the de facto leader of the Redguards, perhaps?

I'm voting for Sordak for Emperor. Since there never was a Conan III it'll be the next best thing. muwahahahaha!!!!

I'm a little dismayed at this singular leadership concept too. I'd much prefer the moot, as far as the pact is concerned. If the other races don't have their own leaders, its safe to say, I'll be very disappointed.

I need to hear more about how they will handle that situation. I'm assuming they'll crown a new emperor every few weeks so it won't be so chaotic, but I have a feeling it will still feel way out of hand.
