EtymologyEdit

Sino-Vietnamese word from 皇子 (imperial prince). The “imperial” connotation of hoàng has been lost due to its favorability over vương, likely due to the influence of historically imperial China and imperial Vietnam, whose monarchs referred to themselves as hoàng đế (emperor) or used hoàng in their titles (e.g. Lí Chiêu Hoàng) Compare hoàng hậu (queen consort, literally empress consort), nữ hoàng (queen regnant, literally empress regnant).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

hoàng tử

  1. a prince (son or male-line grandson of a reigning monarch)

Usage notesEdit

  • A hoàng tử is a son of an emperor or a king. A mere husband of a princess is called phò mã.
