A Byzantine term that has been turned into a modern SCAism. The Autocrat is the person in charge of organising and running an event, also known by by the more medieval terms "Steward" or "Warden". They arrange a feastocrat if there is to be food served, a venue, what activities will run, the time activities will run, advertise the event, take bookings, ensure that everyone involved in the event is doing their job, and that everything on the day runs smoothly. There are a number of ways in which you can help the autocrat make the event run smoothly.

The suffix "-ocrat" frequently gets tacked onto other types of activity to indicate the person in charge. For example, "Feastocrat" is the person in charge of a Feast.
