Colonel Gaddafi grants himself a new title

Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, 'The Leader and Guide of the Revolution' is now styling himself thus:

"King of the kings of Africa and leader of the faithful".

Having been born into a peasant family, it is fait to say that the boy done good.

This all came about as he threw a big hissy fit at King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, at an Arab League bunfight, telling him "Britain made you and the Americans that protected you".

Aren't we lucky, having creations like AAAS to our name?

Meanwhile, other Ozymandias-wannabees are listed here.

Idi Amin remains the er King of Kings when it comes to giving himself grandiose titles.

The less than sadly missed Idi Amin did indeed set the baseline for non-heriditary heads of state, although I will note again that Haile Selassie's title of 'Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Lord of Lords, King of Kings of Ethiopia and Elect of God' is pretty nifty.
