What would the word for empress (other than of Japan) be? Please give me the word for a ruling empress.

  • @broccoliforest Is there an answer to this question? I couldn't find it.

  • @macraf That's a mass of information, but you can search for "empress" on that page. Jul 29 '16 at 9:48
  • @broccoliforest Yes, but the relation is Japanese -> English and it doesn't seem that the English terminology there is supposed to be complete. And it stands in opposition to the answer here.

  • @macraf I thought it at least gave an exact answer to OP's question: "ruling empress" in Japanese. Are you looking at the question or the answer? Jul 29 '16 at 10:33

It's [女帝]{じょてい}.

皇帝 is also used for an empress, e.g.: アンナ(ロシア皇帝)
