Vietnamese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Sino-Vietnamese word from 皇后 (“empress consort.”). The “imperial” connotation of hoàng has been lost due to its favorability over vương, largely thanks to the influence of China as a former empire; compare nữ hoàng (queen regnant, literally empress regnant), hoàng tử (royal prince, literally imperial prince).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

hoàng hậu

  1. a queen consort or an empress consort
