Latin Translation: Heart of a Warrior, Mind of a King
Could you tell me what the correct translation for the following quote is in Latin? This is for a headstone and I'm hoping to have an accurate translation. Thank you.
"Heart of a Warrior, Mind of a King"
Dear Cindy,Anima Bellatoris, Regis Mens
This is the literal translation into Latin of the phrase you asked about: Heart of a Warrior, Mind of a King. Anima
has many meanings, but most frequently soul, heart, spirit. Bellatoris
means of a warrior
and has the Latin root bellum
, war. Regis
means of a king
, from rex
, and our English derivatives such as mental and demented show the Latin root ment-
You might play with word order, too. Bellatoris Anima, Mens Regis
(A Warrior's Heart, the Mind of a King).
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
