Two Hebrew constructions are translated “princess.” 1. “Daughter of a king.” Solomon's 700 wives were princesses married to seal political ties with their fathers (1 Kings 11:3 ). Lamentations 1:1 pictures the reversal of Jerusalem's fortune in the image of a princess turned servant. 2. Feminine form of the common word for leader or ruler applied to a king's wife ( Psalm 45:13 NIV, NRSV) and to the leading women of Judah ( Jeremiah 43:6 NRSV). See Prince .
