Cicero was so entitled by the Roman senate. They offered the same title to Maʹrius, but he refused to accept it.

Several of the Cæsars were so called—Julius, after quelling the insurrection of Spain; Augustus, etc.

Cosmo deʹ Medʹici (1389–1464).

G. Washington, the defender and paternal counseller of the American States. (1732–1799.)

Andrea Doʹrea (1468–1560). Inscribed on the base of his statue by his countrymen of Genʹoa.

Androniʹcus Palæolʹogus II. assumed the title (1260–1332).
