'Cunt' is an ancient word, at least 2,000 years old deriving from the Proto-Indo-European 'cu', which is the root of the modern words 'cunt' ['female genitals'], 'queen' ['female monarch'], and 'cow' ['female animal']. It is also found in Latin, as 'cunnus', as in the Latin word 'cunnilingus' [literally, 'cunt-licking'].

For a definitive history of the word, see http://www.matthewhunt.com/cunt.html ('Cunt: A Cultural History'), written by Matthew Hunt in 2000-2005.
