Kral Family History

Kral Name Meaning
Czech (Král), Slovak (Král), and eastern German (of Slavic origin): from the western Slavic word kral ‘king’, a derivative of the personal name Karl ‘Charles’, the name of the Frankish king and Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne (?742–814; Latin name Carolus Magnus). The word kral as a generic term meaning ‘king’ became widespread throughout eastern Europe in the Middle Ages; in Byzantium it generally denoted the kings of Serbia. As a surname, it generally arose either as an occupational name for a servant of the king or as an ironic nickname for one who gave himself regal airs. The surname is also found in German, often in the spelling Krahl.Americanized form of Slovenian, Croatian, or Serbian Kralj ‘king’, of the same origin as 1. Compare Kraly.
