Empidonax AcadicusTyrant Tyr"ant, n. [OE. tirant, tiraunt, tyraunt, OF. tiran,

tyran, L. tyrannus, Gr. ?, originally, an absolute sovereign,
but afterwards, a severe or cruel ruler.]
1. An absolute ruler; a sovereign unrestrained by law or
constitution; a usurper of sovereignty.
Note: Free governments [in Greece] having superseded the old
hereditary sovereignties (basilei^ai), all who obtained
absolute power in a state were called ty
tyrants, or rather despots; -- for the term rather
regards the irregular way in which the power was
gained, whether force or fraud, than the way in which
it was exercised, being applied to the mild
Pisistratus, but not to the despotic kings of Persia.
However, the word soon came to imply reproach, and was
then used like our tyrant. --Liddell & Scott.
2. Specifically, a monarch, or other ruler or master, who
uses power to oppress his subjects; a person who exercises

imposes burdens and hardships on those under his control,
which law and humanity do not authorize, or which the
purposes of government do not require; a cruel master; an
oppressor. ``This false tyrant, this Nero.' --Chaucer.
