Hwi & Leto II

God-Emperor is the title associated with Leto Atreides II after he ascended to the throne of the Atreides Empire. The title reflects both his status as ruler of multiple galaxies, and the formidable prescience powers he acquired after his transformation to a human-sandworm hybrid.

The title did not endure well after his death. During his life Leto II's enemies referred to him as The Tyrant, and it was this title by which history better remembered him.

This title is incorporated into the name of the novel God Emperor of Dune without the hyphen.

Behind the Scenes Edit

In India, God Emperor or "Chakravartin" is a title of a mystical figure which is said to cross the boundaries of several castes, and is therefore able to change the course of history/time. (Chakravartin means "the man who turns the wheel of destiny".)
