I am looking for a way to say "Implied Power" in Latin. When I say "Implied Power" I mean to say "Implicit Political Authority."
Here is an example to walk readers through what I am trying to get at:
"Explicit Political Authority" is the authority of a governing body to give orders to a department of government, the private sector and the electorate. I have decided to use the word "Imperium" instead of saying "Explicit Political Authority" every time.
Now, "Implicit Political Authority" is the authority exerted by a private entity upon someone holding Imperium (explicit political authority). Someone with "Implicit Political Authority" holds no political office, but by some means is able to influence the outcomes of political life.
So, what I need is ONE word to say "Implicit Political Authority." Obviously Rome had a word for political power, but did they have a way to say indirect power? If they did not, how might we say it?
