|This article is about a piece of terminology in Umineko no Naku Koro ni.|
The title of Territory Lord (領主) is granted to those who have control of a Fragment. While the title is synonymous with Game Master in many respects, the title of Territory Lord can only be inherited or passed down, as opposed to Game Masters being appointed simply for creating or opening a gameboard.
The Territory Lord title is also much more formal than that of other titles, being represented by a golden ring and having a ceremony dedicated to the succession.
