A titular ruler, or titular head, is a person in an official position of leadership who possesses
few, if any, actual powers. Sometimes a person may inhabit a position of titular leadership and yet exercise more power than would normally be
expected, as a result of their personality or experience. A titular ruler is not confined to political leadership but can also reference
any organization, such as a corporation.
Titular is formed from a combination of the Latin titulus (title) and the English suffix -ar, which means "of or belonging to." 
In most democratic countries today, the Head of State has either evolved into, or was created as, a position of titular leadership. In the former case,
the leader may often have significant powers listed within the state's constitution, but is no longer able to exercise them, due to historical changes within that country. In the
latter case, it is often made clear within the document that the leader is intended to be powerless. Heads of State who inhabit
positions of titular leadership are usually regarded as symbols of the people they "lead."
