Hi everyone! What words do you use for a person who is very powerful or has a very high rank?

Thanks so much!

It is the same in England. :D


I am not sure of any general term. It depends on circumstances. In the right circumstances: boss, senior minister, men in grey suits, General, czar, oligarch and many others could apply.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.
