ViceroyViceroy, one who rules a country or province as the representative of his sovereign or king and who is empowered to act in the sovereign’s name. Viceroy (virrey) was the title given to the principal governors of Spain’s American colonies, as well as to the governors of the “kingdoms” (reinos) of peninsular Spain proper (e.g., Aragon, Valencia).
- The term has occasionally been applied to the governors-general of the Commonwealth realms, who are viceregal representatives of the monarch.
- Viceroy is a form of royal appointment rather than noble rank.
