Imperial Regent, sometimes called Lord Regent, Imperator Regis, or the Regent of Terra is a title in the Imperium used several times throughout history.

Extremely prestigious, it is second only to the Emperor in authority. Its holder is said to be the living voice of the Emperor.[3] The title sometimes overlaps with Lord Commander of the Imperium, but presumably includes civic authority as well as military. The title was one of the few positions that warranted the placement of members of the Adeptus Custodes as bodyguards. The post was presumably created after the Emperor of Mankind withdrew from the Great Crusade, and the administration of Terra in general, to work on his own secret projects.[5]
