You can't translate Latin word by word, because every phrase has several meanings.

My translation would be "called to power" or "called to rule"

Mindblown that someone thought this was Italian not Latin.

Re: What does HHH titantron "Vocare Ad Regnum" mean??

Literally translated it's something like "called to rule". What it actually means, is more along the lines of "having a divine right to rule".

There are some other cool bits of Latin that Triple H has used. One was the translation of 'On Your Knees Dog', one was 'Bow Down To The King' IIRC.

I think the dog one was GENIBUS NITITO CANIS or something. They're all slightly botched translations but cool little touches nonetheless. WWE should do more of these smarky, easter-eggy things. Latin works well with (what's left of) the Hunter Hearst-Helmsley character too.

Google translate gave to 'To call to the Kingdom'. Translated to English from Latin. Makes sense now he has been put in charge.

Who would of thought HHH believed in Divine right, something even us British stopped believing in a while ago :P
