Etymology
From Latin praesidens (accusative: praesidentem), meaning 'president, leader'. The Latin word is the substantivized present participle of the verb praesideo (infinitive: praesidere). The verb is composed from prae 'before' and sedere 'sit'. The original meaning of the verb is 'to sit before' in the sense of presiding at a meeting. A secondary meaning of the verb is 'to command, to govern'. So praesidens means 'the presiding one on a meeting' or 'governor, commander'.
