/ˈfɛdərəl/
adjective
1.

noun
2.

adj.

1640s, as a theological term, from French fédéral, from Latin foedus (genitive foederis) “covenant, league, treaty, alliance,” related to fides “faith” (see faith).

Meaning “pertaining to a treaty” (1650s) led to political sense of “state formed by agreement among independent states” (1707), from phrases like federal union “union based on a treaty,” popularized by formation of U.S.A. 1776-1787.
