Nṛpatisattama (नृपतिसत्तम) refers to “great kings”, according to the Mahābhārata verse 1.164.9-11.—Accordingly, “The Ikṣvāku kings conquered this world. Having obtained Vasiṣṭha, the best of sages, as their excellent purohita, those kings performed sacrifices, O descendant of the Kurus. For that Brahmin sage officiated for all those great kings (nṛpatisattama) at their sacrifices, O best of the Pāṇḍavas, as Bṛhaspati did for the gods”.
