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.
