Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Whomsoever'

The pronoun who, in the English language, is the interrogative and relative pronoun that is used to refer to human beings.

The corresponding interrogative pronouns for non-sentient beings are what and which, and the relative pronouns are that and which. That and which are sometimes used in contexts where who might be a more suitable choice, and who is likewise used in contexts where that or which would be a more suitable choice. In addition, the possessive version of the non-sentient pronouns is the same as that of who: whose takes this role for all of them. E.g., "I will have to fix the car whose engine I ruined".

In etymology, the spelling represents the expected outcome of Old English hwā, while the actual pronunciation represents a divergent outcome. It is cognate with Latin quis and Greek ποιός.
