Commander-in-Chief or Supreme Commander is the title given to the leader of an enormous army or the chief of military affairs who presides over a state's overall military command.

Selection Edit

The commander-in-chief is traditionally a general appointed by the king and his war council. There are exceptions to a commander-in-chief being either a handpicked general or the supreme commander of the kingdom's military such as experienced strategists or even political leaders.

Duty Edit

The commander is not only placed in charge of the army's various generals but can delegate other military commanders to function as executives or deputy generals.

Succession Edit

In the event that the commanding general is killed or otherwise indisposed, another general is sometimes chosen to act as an acting commander-in-chief.
