Dominate

 

a conventional term sometimes used in historical literature to signify the unlimited monarchy that arose in ancient Rome in the later Empire, beginning in the reign of Diocletian, who ruled from 284 to 305. It is the opposite of the principate, the political system that preserved several republican institutions.
