Etymology: [circa 1540] From French réalité (“ quality of being real ” ), Middle French realité (“ property, possession ” ), from Medieval Latin realitas, from Late Latin realis (“ real ” ). Recorded since 1550 as a legal term in the sense of “fixed property” (compare real estate, realty); the sense “real existence” is attested from 1647.
