The First Sea Lord of the New Sarovian Empire and Her Colonies and Dominions (formerly known as: First Sea Lord of the Realm, First Sea Lord of the Empire) is the highest rank of the Imperial Sarovian Navy. Appointment to the post of First Sea Lord of the New Sarovian Empire usually required a major military achievement by members of the Admiralty (such as wartime victory on the Continent of Ostos). In addition, the equivalent rank of First Sea Lord is Field Marshal in the Imperial Sarovian Army. The First Sea Lord is an office appointed by His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor, to serve as a direct subordinate of His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor, and responsible for the organization of the Imperial Sarovian Navy. In the entire history of the New Sarovian Empire there have only been 2 people appointed as First Sea Lord.

A Sarovian First Sea Lord is granted the right to wear a unique uniform in the Imperial Navy, including a special First Sea Lord staff as a symbol of office, the right to First Sea Lord batons in their heraldry, the post nominal "FSL" and a lot more. The first holder of the office of First Sea Lord was John Vasa, Prince of Kiev, who served as the longest-serving First Sea Lord in history. Furthermore, under John Vasa as First Sea Lord, the Imperial Sarovian Navy along with the Admiralty at the time, was able to defeat the Aurean Empire at Ostos, thus ending the era of Aurean hegemony.
