Origin: [F., from L. princeps, -cipis, the first, chief; primus first + capere to take. See Prime, a., and Capacious.]
Prince is a general term for a ruler, monarch, or member of a monarch's or former monarch's family, and it is a hereditary title in the nobility of some European states. The feminine equivalent is a princess. The English word derives, via the French word prince, from the Latin noun princeps, from primus + capio, meaning "the chief, most distinguished, ruler, prince".
