Means "ruler of a country" or "emperor", from Sanskrit चक्र (cakrá) meaning "wheel, circle" combined with वर्तते (vártate) meaning "to turn, to roll". The name literally means "turning wheels" or "rolling wheels", but metaphorically denotes a ruler whose chariot's wheels roll without hindrance or obstruction.
