Where does the word “maharajah” come from?

Magnus rex!! Well, it doesn’t come from latin, but it has the same roots! Isn’t that cool? Reg/rag = diriger/gouverner: en latin, rex/regis; en hindoustani, rajah; all are words that mean “king” or “roi/rey/rei” (celui qui dirige). Et un maha-rajah est un “grand roi” (magnus rex).
