The title accorded to Makkus, a Ligonian leader. A politician during a time of great upheaval, Makkus opposed the bitter tribal warfare dividing his people, and worked to put an end to the feuds. He eventually succeeded in uniting the tribes, through a combination of diplomacy and military action. Accordingly, upon the cessation of hostilities, Makkus was declared Sovereign of Ligon. His unified planetary government endures to the present day, with each Sovereign building on the legacy of Makkus, now hailed as First Sovereign.
