 AP'EKALUPTETW, because the APO is "separable" to admit the augment, and
 the O elides (is omitted) before the E.

 It would be the Jussive (Imperfect) 3 f.s. Niph`al of GaLaH, to reveal.
 In your example, TiGGaLeH MaLKuWTeKa, let your kingly dignity be revealed.
 Or YiGGaLeH MaM:LaK:TeKa, let your royal territory be revealed.
 "Kingdom" is ambiguous in English.
