The position of the Maou (Demon King) is not determined by social standing or heredity. They are decided by Shinou's word and one day a messenger suddenly appears to call on them. Usually once their term as maou is done they return to their hometowns and live the rest of their days as normal.

There were 26 Maous before Yuuri, making Yuuri the 27th Demon King of Shin Makoku.

Maou of EarthEdit

There is not much known about the Maou of Earth. Bob has been the Maou since at least 1938 and none of the Maou before him are known. Shouri is to be his successor.


The names of all former Maous starting from the 24th Maou and ending with the first are told to Yuuri by Gunter in Volume 1, Chapter 3. In the same chapter, Cacilie is introduced.

Information on Chevalier being the 25th Maou is revealed in Volume 16, Chapter 7.
