A ruler or governor. From the Latin gubernatus.
Also, the helmsman or pilot of a boat.

This is a word from Roman times and was NOT coined for Schwarzenegger.
An example appears in a 19th century poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes, "Contentment" -

I'm very sure I should not care
To fill our Gubernator's chair.

The term that was actually coined *FIRST* to describe Arnold Schwarzenegger, more etymologically accurate than the bastardized "governator"..."gubernator" can be faux-extrapolated as a root of "gubernatorial." Arianna Huffington uses it, and I'm with her.
The Gubernator moved into his new Sacramento mansion today with five alsatians, his wife and a cubic ton of chicken feathers. He told the state legislature to "check back in a week."
