a great raja; a Hindu prince or king in India ranking above a raja
A Hindu prince ranking above a raja.
Origin: compound of and [akin to Latin rex]. (Eng. usg. 1698)
Mahārāja is a Sanskrit title for a "great king" or "high king". The female equivalent title Maharani denotes either the wife of a Maharaja or, in states where that was customary, a woman ruling in her own right. The widow of a Maharaja is known as a Rajmata. The term Maharaj denotes separate noble and religious offices, although the fact that in Hindi the suffix 'a' in Maharaja is silent makes the two titles near homophones.
