Etymology: From président, from praesidens (accusative: praesidentem). The Latin word is the substantivized present active participle of the verb praesideo. The verb is composed from prae and sedeo. The original meaning of the verb is 'to sit before' in the sense of presiding at a meeting. A secondary meaning of the verb is 'to command, to govern'. So praesidens means 'the presiding one on a meeting' or 'governor, commander'.
