Etymology[edit]

Sino-Vietnamese word from 女皇 (“empress regnant.”). The “imperial” connotation of hoàng has been lost due to its favorability over vương; compare hoàng hậu (queen consort, literally empress regnant), hoàng tử (royal prince, literally imperial prince).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

nữ hoàng

  1. a queen regnant or an empress regnant
