Etymology

From Latin accusative insurgentem (nom. insurgens) < Latin infinitive insurgere (to rise up against, revolt); compounded from the prefix in- (against) + surgere (to rise). Surgere is compounded from sub (up from below) + regere (to guide, direct, rule, govern, administer) < Proto-Indo-European *reg- (to move in a straight line, to rule, guide, lead straight, put right).
