1. a widow holding property or a title from her deceased husband

Often used in combination with the title
queen dowager, dowager duchess.

2. a dignified elderly woman

Part of Speech (POS)


I’ll use it in a sentence:

• The congregation’s dowager, donated an exorbitant amount of money to assist the congregation’s summer camp program.

• Despite lamenting over the death of her husband, the dowager took solace in knowing that she was financially well off.

• Lady Willamina Bouvier the town’s dowager, was respected by everyone including the local elected officials.

• As a dowager, Ms. Debbie Guggenheim now owns the estate of her late husband.

• The queen dowager became gravely ill with legionnaires disease.

Now it’s your turn, on a sheet of paper or in the comment section below, write a few sentences using the word dowager.

Tip: Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.

We hope you enjoyed this workshop!
