Leaders of countries that are also religious figures/leaders

Many countries have leaders of a particular religion, some countries have state religions, but some countries have leaders that specifically hold religious titles or roles. They can either become leaders ex officio of their religious titles, or vice versa. Many have existed through history but only a few exist today. Which ones do you know?
Some of these official titles are purely symbolic.
There are actually many more examples of leaders with religious titles, usually of small or unrecognised states and caliphates.
