Most kingdoms in the world of "One Piece" are ruled by a royal family of sort. Most of the rulers are monarch, however some ruler are called by other names while retaining their status and privilege: "Empress" in Amazon Lily, "God" in Skypiea, "Duke" or "Master" is Zou, "Lord" in Wano for example. The patriarch of Kamabakka is referred to as "Queen" due to the culture of the kingdom.
The titles can be revoked with the replacement of the ruler by means of force, rebellion of the people, the monarchy abandoning their kingdoms or by the the members of the royal family.
