An autarch was an absolute and dictatorial ruler.

After Benjamin Sisko was told by Ambassador Krajensky that the Tzenkethi Autarch had apparently been overthrown by a coup d'etat on Tzenketh in 2371, Sisko was pleased, saying that "I doubt anyone is going to miss the Autarch". (DS9: "The Adversary")

The Ilari in the Delta Quadrant were ruled by an autarch. The term autarch on Ilari appeared to be equivalent to the title emperor on Earth, as the Autarch of Ilari resided in the Imperial Palace. This hereditary title was passed to the firstborn child of the deceased monarch. (VOY: "Warlord")

On Kelis' homeworld, there also lived an Autarch. (VOY: "Muse")

According to the script for "The Adversary", autarch was pronounced as "AW-tark". [1]
