Think you know what a princess is? This essay, which is largely organized around photos, illuminates the meanings of “princess,” “empress,” and “crown princess”; 妃 versus 姫; “regnant” versus “consort”; and much more. We look closely at Japan’s imperial household (especially Princess Masako), as well as royalty in Britain and France, even touching on Monaco and Manchuria!   

Using the accompanying game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

Finally, Ulrike has produced the following new-monics (which are free!):

半 (195: half)
医 (225: doctor)
判 (769: judgment)
伴 (1712: to accompany)
畔 (1713: ridge between fields)
