: We're looking for definitions and origins that will show us the difference in the meanings and use of the terms: Tsar, Czar, Emperor, King, Chancellor.....Anyone out there who can help, we appreciate....

Any of the Roman emperors succeeding Augustus Caesar were called caesar (uncapitalized)--which means powerful leader.
Tzar, Czar and Kaiser are derived from caesar.
