Infante
INFANTE (Spanish: , Portuguese: ; f. INFANTA), also anglicised as INFANT or translated as PRINCE , is the title and rank given in the Iberian kingdoms of Spain (including the predecessor kingdoms of Aragon , Castile , Navarre and León ), and Portugal , to the sons and daughters (infantas) of the king, sometimes with the exception of the heir apparent to the throne who usually bears a unique princely or ducal title. The wife of an infante was accorded the title of infanta if the marriage was dynastically approved (e.g., Princess
Princess
Alicia of Bourbon-Parma ), although since 1987 this is no longer automatically the case in Spain (e.g., Princess
Princess
Anne d\'Orléans ). Husbands of born infantas did not obtain the title of infante through marriage (unlike most hereditary titles of Spanish nobility ), although occasionally elevated to that title de gracia ("by grace") at the sovereign's command

Grammatical Gender
In linguistics , GRAMMATICAL GENDER is a specific form of noun-class system in which the division of noun classes forms an agreement system with another aspect of the language, such as adjectives, articles, pronouns, or verbs. This system is used in approximately one quarter of the world's languages . In these languages, most or all nouns inherently carry one value of the grammatical category called gender; the values present in a given language (of which there are usually two or three) are called the genders of that language. According to one definition: "Genders are classes of nouns reflected in the behaviour of associated words." Common gender divisions include masculine and feminine; masculine, feminine and neuter; or animate and inanimate. In a few languages, the gender assignment of nouns is solely determined by their meaning or attributes, like biological sex, humanness, animacy

Anglicised
ANGLICISATION (or ANGLICIZATION, see English spelling differences ), occasionally ANGLIFICATION, ANGLIFYING, ENGLISHING, in this article refers to modifications made to foreign words, names and phrases to make them easier to spell, pronounce, or understand in English. It commonly refers to the respelling of foreign words, often to a more drastic degree than romanisation . One example is the word "dandelion", modified from the French dent-de-lion (“lion’s tooth”, because of the sharply indented leaves). Anglicising non-English words for use in English is just one case of the widespread domestication of foreign words that is common to many languages, sometimes involving shifts in meaning. One example is the German word Felleisen (a backpack), a germanization of the French word valise (small suitcase)

Kingdom Of Portugal
The KINGDOM OF PORTUGAL ( Latin : Regnum Portugalliae, Portuguese : Reino de Portugal) was a monarchy on the Iberian Peninsula and the predecessor of modern Portugal . It was in existence from 1139 until 1910. After 1248, it was also known as the KINGDOM OF PORTUGAL AND THE ALGARVES , and between 1815 and 1822, it was known as the UNITED KINGDOM OF PORTUGAL, BRAZIL AND THE ALGARVES . The name is also often applied to the PORTUGUESE EMPIRE , the realm's extensive overseas colonies. The nucleus of the Portuguese state was the County of Portugal , established in the 9th century as part of the Reconquista , by Vímara Peres , a vassal of the King of Asturias . The county became part of the Kingdom of León in 1097, and the Counts of Portugal established themselves as rulers of an independent kingdom in the 12th century, following the battle of São Mamede

Prince Du Sang
A PRINCE DU SANG (French pronunciation: ​ , Prince
Prince
of the Blood) is a person legitimately descended in dynastic line from any of a realm 's hereditary monarchs . Historically, the term has been used to refer to men and women descended in the male line from a sovereign, although as absolute primogeniture has become more common in monarchies, those with succession rights through female descent are more likely than in the past to be accorded the princely title (e.g., Belgian Royal Family ). In some European kingdoms, especially France, this appellation was a specific rank in its own right, of a more restricted use than other titles

Hereditary Title
HEREDITARY TITLES, in a general sense, are titles of nobility, positions or styles that are hereditary and thus tend or are bound to remain in particular families. Though both monarchs and nobles usually inherit their titles, the mechanisms often differ, even in the same country. The British crown has been heritable by women since the medieval era (in the absence of brothers), while the vast majority of hereditary noble titles granted by British sovereigns are not heritable by daughters. CONTENTS * 1 Gender preference * 2 Examples * 3 Coparcenary * 4 See also * 5 Notes * 6 External links GENDER PREFERENCEOften a hereditary title is inherited only by the legitimate, eldest son of the original grantee or that son's male heir according to masculine primogeniture . In some countries and some families, titles descended to all children of the grantee equally, as well as to all of that grantee's remoter descendants, male and female

Heir Apparent
An HEIR APPARENT or HEIRESS APPARENT is a person who is first in line of succession and cannot be displaced from inheriting by the birth of another person. An heir presumptive , by contrast, is someone who is first in line to inherit a title but who can be displaced by the birth of a more eligible heir. Today these terms most commonly describe heirs to hereditary titles , particularly monarchies . They are also used metaphorically to indicate an "anointed" successor to any position of power, e.g., a political or corporate leader. Most monarchies refer to the heir apparent with the descriptive term of crown prince or a more specific title, such as Prince of Orange in the Netherlands, Prince of Asturias in Spain, or Prince of Wales
Prince of Wales
in the Commonwealth realms . In France the title was le Dauphin , in Imperial Russia it was Tsesarevich
