    There is a medieval word that fits best:

    Ditio = power; sovereignty, dominion, authority

    In classic Latin, potestas may not be as much toward domination as you want. Perhaps 'imperium' fits better.

    Imperium = command; authority; rule, supreme power

    I didn't study Latin, but the sources I checked point to the central problem: The word "power" is of French origin and most of latin, as it regards "power," is translated as a complete phrase. One word isn't generally thought of. I went to: "Research your answer" on your question page. I typed in: Power/latin translation/definition and clicked on #1. I think that will be the most extensive answer you'll find. Good luck! Soory I couldn't be of more help.

    I am learning Latin this year and power in Latin means potestas.

    auctorita (f) means authority or power in English

    This may be a bit closer to what you are looking for than potestas (f), which means legal competence, power, ability, authority or opportunity in English.

    Ab memet (ipso) salva me quia nescio quod facere debeo. Don't trust "googling", those translations usually aren't any good.
