Regicide Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
The broad definition of regicide (Latin regis "of king" + cida "killer" or cidium "killing") is the deliberate killing of a monarch, or the person responsible for the killing of a monarch. In a narrower sense, in the British tradition, it refers to the judicial execution of a king after a trial. More broadly, it can also refer to the killing of an emperor.
