You can see titles that the pigs invented for Napoleon in Chapter VIII of the book. Here are some of them:
- Father of All Animals,
- Terror of Mankind,
- Protector of the Sheep-fold,
- Ducklings' Friend
These titles are meant to glorify Napoleon. This is a tactic that is often used by dictators and despots as a means of propaganda. By giving themselves all these titles, they are trying to convince the people that they really have all these attributes.
Such names also contribute to a "cult of personality." This refers to a situation where the people think the leader pretty much is the country and where they see him as the next best thing to a god.
