Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g935 Greek: basileus

King:

"a king" (cp. Eng., "Basil"), e.g., Mat 1:6, is used of the Roman emperor in 1Pe 2:13, 17 (a command of general application); this reference to the emperor is illustrated frequently in the koine (see Preface to this volume); of Herod the Tetrarch (used by courtesy), Mat 14:9; of Christ, as the "King" of the Jews, e.g., Matt, 2:2; 27:11, 29, 37; as the "King" of Israel, Mar 15:32; Jhn 1:49; 12:13; as "King of kings," Rev 17:14; 19:16; as "the King" in judging nations and men at the establishment of the millennial kingdom, Mat 25:34, 40; of God, "the great King," Mat 5:35; "the King eternal, incorruptible, invisible," 1Ti 1:17; "King of kings," 1Ti 6:15, see Note (2) below; "King of the ages," Rev 15:3, RV (AV, "saints"). Christ's "kingship" was predicted in the OT, e.g., Psa 2:6, and in the NT, e.g., Luk 1:32, 33; He came as such, e.g., Mat 2:2; Jhn 18:37; was rejected and died as such, Luk 19:14; Mat 27:37; is now a "King" Priest, after the order of Melchizedek, Hbr 5:6; 7:1, 17; and will reign for ever and ever, Rev 11:15.

Notes:

(1) In Rev 1:6; 5:10, the most authentic mss. have the word basileia, "kingdom," instead of the plural of basileus, AV, "kings," RV, "a kingdom (to be priests)," and "a kingdom (and priests)." The kingdom was conditionally offered by God to Israel, that they should be to Him "a kingdom of priests," Exd 19:6, the entire nation fulfilling priestly worship and service. Their failure to fulfil His covenant resulted in the selection of the Aaronic priesthood. The bringing in of the new and better covenant of grace has constituted all believers a spiritual kingdom, a holy and royal priesthood, 1Pe 2:5, 9.

(2) In 1Ti 6:15, the word "kings" translates the present participle of the verb basileuo, "to be king, to have kingship," lit., "of (those) who are kings."
See REIGN,

(3) Deissmann has shown that the title "king of kings" was "in very early eastern history a decoration of great monarchs and also a divine title" (Light from the Ancient East, pp. 367, f.). Moulton and Milligan illustrate the use of the title among the Persians, from documents discovered in Media.

B-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g934 Greek: basileios

King:

denoting "royal," as in 1Pe 2:9, is used in the plural, of the courts or palaces of kings, Luk 7:25, "kings' courts;" a possible meaning is "among royal courtiers or persons."

B-2 Adjective Strong's Number: g937 Greek: basilikos

King:

"royal, belonging to a king," is used in Act 12:20 with "country" understood, "their country was fed from the king's," lit., "the royal (country)."
See NOBLEMAN, ROYAL.
