Discworld Wiki

Grand Vizier was the title of the effective head of government of many sovereign states in the Islamic world. The office of grand vizier was first held by officials in the Abbasid Caliphate. It was then held in the Ottoman Empire, the Mughal Empire, the Sokoto Empire, the Safavid Empire and Morocco. (Wikipedia)

In the Discworld, the Grand Vizier of the Agatean Empire was a scheming megalomaniac, as are all Grand Viziers on the Disc.

'Grand Viziers were always scheming megalomaniacs. It was probably in the job description: "Are you a devious, plotting, unreliable madman? Ah, good, then you can be my most trusted minister.”' [1] Interesting Times
