Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can think of three "Roman emperors":

  1. The Tsar of Russia (the "Third Rome")

  2. The Emperor of Austria (descendent of the Holy Roman Emperors)

  3. The Ottoman emperor (descendent of Mehmet II, who conquered Constantinople and claimed the title of Kayser-i Rûm)

I suppose that the fourth was Kaiser Wilhelm, but did the German Empire claim to be heir to the Romans?
