English Synonyms and Antonyms, by James Champlin Fernald

  1. royal

    Royal denotes that which actually belongs or pertains to a monarch; the royal residence is that which the king occupies, royal raiment that which the king wears. Regal denotes that which in outward state is appropriate for a king; a subject may assume regal magnificence in residence, dress, and equipage. Kingly denotes that which is worthy of a king in personal qualities, especially of character and conduct; as, a kingly bearing; a kingly resolve. Princely is especially used of treasure, expenditure, gifts, etc., as princely munificence, a princely fortune, where regal could not so well be used and royal would change the sense. The distinctions between these words are not absolute, but the tendency of the best usage is as here suggested.

    Antonyms:
    beggarly, contemptible, mean, poor, servile, slavish, vile

    Synonyms:
    august, kinglike, kingly, magnificent, majestic, munificent, princely, regal
