From one of the comments: "Amin gave himself a bunch of phoney and bogus titles throughout his rule, when the last British ambasadors left in '77 Amin gave himself the title CBE=Conqueror of British Empire thus making him a King of Scotland."

From Wikipedia: "His full self-bestowed title ultimately became "His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular", in addition to his officially stated claim of being the uncrowned King of Scotland."
