Tetrarchy is a political system in which four, powerful, wealthy authorities (usually monarchs) are the rulers, usually with direct, absolute power.


The idea of Tetrarchy had started in the later years of the Third Century Crisis, with its adoption as the new governmental system instituted by the Roman Empire, it marked the end of the Third Century Crisis. There was a slight time of prosperity during its reign. But, its demise would come in 305, when both of the Emperor's 20-year-long terms had ended, and both abdicated, ending the Tetrarchy.


Tetrarchy believes that the rule that four people provide is the best way a government could be formed.

Flag of Tetrarchy


He hates barbarians with all of his four hearts, he loves to spend time with his parents. He is most fond of Diarchy, but he does think two rulers only is a stupid idea and considers it to be naïve. He doesn't seem to be very fond of crises or civil wars.



  • Diarchy- My dad! I just think he has too/two few leaders to have an effective government.
  • Oligarchy - My other dad! I'm pretty much him, just a bit smaller.


  • Autocracy and other single-ruler ideologies - You are a quarter of me. Get a few more leaders and we can be friends.


  • Democracy - Fools! Only 4 should rule, not everyone!
