The title of Caesar is the second-highest ranking honour which the Monarch of Austenasia can bestow. The Monarch was granted the right to bestow the title of Caesar (as well as that of Augusta) by Parliament on 1 July 2010, reflecting the claim of Emperor Esmond III to reign in succession to the Roman Emperors. Esmond III himself, as well as his successor Declan I, both appointed two Caesars; the incumbent Jonathan I has appointed one.

The title is available only to men, and ostensibly limited to those within the Imperial Family, with exceptions to the latter requirement permitted only with the consent of both the Prime Minister and all those of archducal rank. However, of the five Caesars appointed by the Emperors of Austenasia, all have been appointed under this provision, with none being relatives of the reigning Emperor upon their appointment.

Appointment to the position of Caesar carries with it connotations of a degree of association with the Throne; upon the creation of the position, Esmond III referred to it as being similar to an "honorary deputy Emperor". It is treason to harm a Caesar, and in accordance with the Succession to the Throne Act 2015, should the Line of Succession come to an end, Caesars are eligible both to serve as Lord Regent (interim head of state) and to put forward a claim to the Throne to be considered by the government. Furthermore, both incumbent and former Caesars are eligible to become Senators.

When in full regalia, Caesars may wear a silver diadem with a jewel but no pendilia, a robe or chlamys of red, and blue shoes. Should a Caesar also be the spouse of the Monarch, his diadem may be golden.
