  1. Samdech

    Samdech or Samdach (Khmer: សម្តេច) is a Cambodian honourific that is bestowed by the King of Cambodia to individuals deemed to have made significant contributions to the nation. It roughly translates as "lord". It is often accompanied by a longer title; for instance, prime minister Hun Sen's full title is "Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen" (lit. "Lord Prime Minister Supreme Military Commander Hun Sen"). Some members of the royal family and religious leaders also have "Samdech" as part of their title. In July 2016, the government ordered the media to use leaders' full titles.The title used to be a rarity as under King Norodom Sihanouk, only four politicians had received the title including Penn Nouth, Nhiek Tioulong, Son Sann, and Chau Sen Cocsal Chhum, all of whom have served as prime minister.
