* In the later ''Literature/BlackCompany'' books, the FantasyCounterPartCulture version of India is ruled by a prince. (At some point in the distant past, it was part of a now-defunct much larger empire.)

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in the ''WheelOfTime'' when Elayne effectively rules Caemlyn (the capital city) for several months as Daughter-Heir (the term princess exists, but is considered old-fashioned). This happens because there's a conflict over who should be Queen.

** A self-styled King of Ooo has appeared in the show, but he acts more like a cult leader and petty confidence trickster than a monarch, and most of those who accept his authority are overtly naive individuals.

* The male variation of this trope is featured in ''Emilia Galotti'' by [[DichterAndDenker Gotthold Ephraim Lessing]]. The antagonist, Prince Hettore Gonzaga is the king and regent of Guastalla in all but the title. Lessing probably did that to avert any obvious parallels to the regents of ''his'' time (the piece, albeit set in renaissance Italy, was a warily subtle commentary on the corrupted politics of the then-contemporary 18th century [[AllTheLittleGermanies German states]]).

* Princess Allura from ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''.




to:

* In ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfHarmonyAndTheSaviorOfWorlds'', Celestia and Luna say that the reason they're princesses instead of queens is because princesses are closer to their people than queens. Though Celestia later admits that in reality, they view themselves as regents holding the throne until Queen Majesty's true heir eventual comes forth. There are hints that Twilight Sparkle may be the one they're waiting on, but there's been no confirmation on that one way or another yet.

* The first episode of ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'' explains that the title character can't become queen until she comes of age according to the laws of their nation. As such she is crown princess with a council to help her rule until then.

to:

* It's implied in FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse that Luna and Celestia used to use the title of Princess because they were co-rulers. Especially since when Celestia went off the deep end and became Corona, she insisted on being referred to as a Queen. Presumably Luna refrained from claiming the title of Queen after her sister's defeat to avoid the traumatic associations the title had picked up for Equestria's ponies.

** The Season 3 finale ''[[{{Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure}} Magical Mystery Cure]]'' finally explains this in-universe. The princesses aren't from a bloodline, they're chosen due to their talents. [[spoiler:Like Twilight at the end of the episode.]]

[[spoiler:Like Twilight at the end of the episode.]]]] The Season Six premier, ''[[{{Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E1TheCrystallingPart1}} The Crystalling]]'', confirmed that this also applied to Celestia and Luna, when they state that Equestria had "never seen a pony born an Alicorn", despite the two princesses having been shown to be alicorns from a relatively young age when originally fighting Discord.

** And on the opposite end, the series also has Prince Blueblood, who is not an [[WingedUnicorn alicorn]] and is not really connected to the throne at all. WordOfGod says that he was supposed to be a Duke, which would have been more appropriate, but they weren't sure whether the kids would know what a duke is.
