Maharaja Country of Origin, Nationality, & Ethnicity

The word  Maharaja  originates in the  Sanskrit  language and is a compound  karmadharaya  term (from  mahānt  "great" and  rājan  "king"). It has the Latin cognates  ( accusative case )  magnum  ("great") and  rēgem  ("king"). [3] [4]  Due to Sanskrit's major influence on the vocabulary of most languages in  India  and Asia, the term 'maharaja' is common to many modern  Indian languages , such as  Hindi ,  Rajasthani ,  Malvi ,  Telugu ,  Oriya ,  Punjabi ,  Bengali ,  Gujarati , etc. The Sanskrit title maharaja was originally used only for kings who ruled a considerably large region with minor tributary kings under them. Since the mediaeval times the title was used even by rulers of smaller states since they claimed to be the descendants of the ancient maharajas.
