Nizam'

A title of sovereignty in Hyderabad (India), derived from Nizamul-mulk (regulator of the state), who obtained possession of the Deccan at the beginning of the 18th century. The name Caesar was by the Romans used precisely in the same manner, and has descended to the present hour in the form of Kaiser (of the German Empire).
