Grand Duchess or Tsarevna?
« on: October 13, 2009, 06:50:35 PM »
I knew that Tsarevna was the daughter or even granddaughter of the Tsar, so what's the difference
between Tsarevna and Grand Duchess?
Advanced Thanks

Thanks for the fact Ally, because I read in one page that the Tsarevna was the person that I mentioned
before but I'm sure that it must be wrong

There is a difference between Tsarevna of XVI-XVII cent and XIX cent.. In the time of the Romanov Tzars of the XVI-middle XVIII cent. Tsarevna was the title of ANY Tzar's daughter. Even Empress Elizaveta Petrovna, daughter of Peter the Great, was known as Tsarevna before her acsending the throne. And even in XIX cent. daughters of Nicholas I were known as Tsarevnas.
You probably mixed up Tsarevna and Tsesarevna. The last title is of a wife of Tsesarevitch, heir of the throne.

Tsesarevitch is only the heir to the throne, it's the official title. Unofficially he was called Tsarevitch as well.
