Etymology[edit]

  1. Claimed as a Latin loanword, from (reconstructed root) Vulgar Latin *imperātus (compare Romanian împărat, Aromanian ampirat), from Latin imperātor.[3]
  2. In Albanian itself it appears as a compound of mbi (upon, over, above) + re (cloud(s)); meaning "above the cloud(s)", as "the highest".
    re from Old Albanian ren, singularized plural of *ri, from Proto-Albanian *rina, from Proto-Indo-European *h₃rinéHti (move). Cognate to Illyrian *rhinos (fog, mist), Proto-Slavic *rinǫti (push, shove), Ancient Greek ὀρίνω (orínō, to stir, move, excite)), present of *h₃reiH-.
    See also: re (care, consideration, attention). From Proto-Albanian *raida, from Proto-Indo-European *rey- (reason, count). Cognate with Latin rātiō (reason, judgment), Old Norse ráða, English read.
