To King. v.a. [from the noun.]
- To supply with a king.
England is so idly king'd,
Her sceptre so fantastically borne,
By a vain, giddy, shallow, humorous youth,
That fear attends her not. Shakespeare's Henry V.
- To make royal; to raise to royalty.
Sometimes am I a king;
Then treason makes me wish myself a beggar,
And so I am: then crushing penury
Persuades me, I was better when a king;
Then am I king'd again. Shakespeare's Richard II.
