Is there also "danteus" meaning "child of a king"? Is there any difference in the *treatment* of princes and princesses, i.e. does the kingship pass to the eldest son by default, and only to the eldest daughter if there are no sons, or are all royal offspring created equal? I'd expect the former, as you wrote that it's a patriarchal society. Irina (mailing list address) (myself) (English) (Nederlands)
