The Hand of the King, often shortened Hand, is the most powerful appointed position in Shrek's Kingdom, second only to the king in authority and responsibility. The Hand is the King's closest advisor, appointed and authorized to make decisions in the king's name.

Tyrion Lannister serves as Hand of the King under King Shrek III. From time to time, the Hand will also perform public executions.

This title is copied from the Game of Thrones-franchise, and only changed slightly.
