beauteous (comparative more beauteous, superlative most beauteous)

  1. (archaic) beautiful
    • 1609, William Shakespeare, "Sonnet 34", The Sonnets
      Why didst thou promise such a beauteous day
      And make me travel forth without my cloak,
      To let base clouds o'ertake me in my way,
      Hiding thy bravery in their rotten smoke?
