Reign vs Rule

I guess (without doing any research whatsoever) that you can reign, that is be in a position of authority, without actually exerting any influence, a figure-head like my Queen.

I guess to rule means you reign AND exert power over the populace, like George W.

الحكم من دون فرض السيطرة


Explanation:

تعني كلمة reign تولي سدَّة الحكم سواء أكان شرفيًا أم فعليًا أو بتعبير آخر الوصول إلى الحكم، أمّا كلمة rule فالمقصود بها السيطرة الفعلية ولا مجال للحكم الصوري ولا الشرفي فيها. وفي هذه الجملة لن نذكر كلمة شرفي ولا صوري حتى يتناسب المعنى مع السياق وإليكم تعريفهما في قاموس ويبستر

Rule: to exercise authority or power over often harshly or arbitrarily
Reign: to hold office as chief of state although possessing little governing power


Example sentence(s):
  • The speaker ruled the legislature with an iron hand.
  • In England, the sovereign reigns but does not rule.
