In Nilfgaard

In the Nilfgaardian Empire, the High Priest is the highest religious rank belonging to the head of the state cult of the Great Sun. At least since Emreis family is on the throne, the high priesthood is a hereditary rank of emperors,[2] who are also one of two principal objects of worship after the Sun itself.[3]
