Introduction, the Royal Family of Majapahit
Pada nearly always marks respect, it is rendered as Feet, with a capital “F”. Bhatāra and Bhatārī are translated: Lord and Lady, with capital letters. Bhatāra is a predicate of nobility or Royalty (often so in the Par., v. gl. of Par.). It is remarkable that in that case (at least in the Nāg.) it marks a less exalted rank than Çrī, translated: Illustrious; it is rendered as: lord, without a capital.
