Monarch
 
Who would not brave the battle-fire—the wreck,
To move the monarch of her peopled deck?
        Byron.—The Corsair, Canto I. Stanza 3.

Monarchs seldom sigh in vain.
        Scott.—Marmion, Canto V. Stanza 9.

I am monarch of all I survey,
  My right there is none to dispute;
From the centre all round to the sea,
  I am lord of the fowl and the brute.
        Cowper.—Verses on Alexander Selkirk.
