The Patriarch of the Church of Koar was the top clerical position in the Church of Koar in the Turamzzyrian Empire.

The position of Patriarch was at the preference of the reigning Emperor or Empress of the Empire, who could select or dismiss candidates for the position at will. This became custom after a power struggle between the church and the empire in the reign of Ommindar the Stout in 4800. The position was one of the most powerful in the empire.
