What is the difference between a King and an Emperor?
Generally a king is the ruler of a nation that is rather homogenous: Kingdoms may be large, but are in one part of the globe and the whole nation had a single origin, as opposed to an empire, where the emperor rules a may be nation spread across the globe where other kingdoms are subject to his rule. An emperor is like the king of other kings.
For example: Queen Victoria was the ruler of England, but she was also the "Empress of India."
An emperor is considered a higher rank than a king. A king will typically rule either a nation-state or a tribe of people. An emperor will loosely govern a collection of kingdoms or principalities or will govern a nation state and a number of provinces. Popes, Kaisers, and Czars are considered equal to an emperor in Europe.
