Raja, also spelled Rajah, denotes a king or princely ruler in India. The word is rooted in Sanskrit and has a long history in the Indian sub-continent. The title is used in India to distinguish a Hindu king from a Muslim Nawab or Shah, and still is commonly used in India. The female equivalent is 'Rani'.
