From memory (anyone can correct me or add to this, I'm about to log off for the night) Czar/Tsar/Kaiser and all it's variations are based on the roman empire title Caesar after Julius Caesar. His name became a title just as Augustus name was used by the emperor's wife as the Augusta.

I've seen a similar situation with the Bonaparte family, in the 19th century one of the leaders decided to use Napoleon's name as a new surname for the main branch that heads the family. So, a name became something else.

It depends on the country. Russia was an Empire therefore the Czar was an Emperor. In Bulgaria, from 1908 the Tsar (Foxy Ferdinand) was a King.

Another one that is equally confusing is "Prince/Princess Romanov/a" because this, also, was not existing in the true Tsarist times.
Who conferred these new titles? When? Was is only for the purpose of giving a courtesy to the family? Did other royal families recognize these titles? I know, obviously, the Soviet Union could never recognize them.

Prince of Russia?! It's so weird to me! Who made this up and why couldn't they use something that was actually "real" for Russian history?
Only great-grandchildren in the male line of the Tsar were permitted to be a Prince/Princess of Russia with the style of Serene Highness. The eldest male successors of the original holder was permitted to retain this style provided they married equally. HH Prince/Princess of Russia was allowed to the grandchildren of the Tsar in the male line, with the eldest male grandson granted the style of Imperial Highness and Grand Duke of Russia.

The current descendants are not royal, but morganatic agnates of imperial dynasts. They style themselves "Prince/Princess Romanov", but there was no such title in Imperial Russia.

Though the morganauts without titles given by the Head of House don't have a solid claim to being "HH Prince/Princess Romanov", couldn't they legitimately use the title Prince/Princess of Holstein-Gottorp?

The title of Grand Duke/Duchess with the style of Imperial Highness was given to the children and male line grandchildren of the Emporer.
Great-grandchildren were Prince/ss with the style of His/Her Highness. The eldest son of a great grandson was also HH.
All other members of the family were Prince/ss with the style of His/Her Serene Highness.

Example: HIM Emperor Nicholas I- (his son) HIH Grand Duke Constantine Nicholaievich- (grandson) HIH Grand Duke Constantine Constantinovich- (great-grandson) HH Prince Ivan Constantinovich-(great-great-granddaughter) HSH Princess Ekaterina Ivanovna.

HSH Princess Ekaterina Ivanovna died recently ( March 13). She was the last member of the Imperial Family of Russia to be born prior to the revolution. She lived 1915-2007.

Is Grand Duchess the second highest title of a female member of the imperial Russian family behind Empress?

Yes, it is. A Grand Duchess was the wife of a Grand Duke, a daughter or male-line granddaughter of the Tsar.

In fact the British system is clear cut and precise. The Russian titles especially those that deal with morganatic unions and their descendants really sounds complicated.

Russian Titles

Hello I was thinking it would be a help to have a list of the original Russian titles with their common counterparts in English.

Russian English
Russian ? English czar, tsar
Russian Царица (Tzatitsa) English - czarina, tsarina, tsaritsa
Russian ? English czarevich, czarevitch, tsarevitch, tsarevich
Russian ? English czarevna, tsarevna
Russian Великий Князь (Velikiy Knyaz); Великая Княгиня (Velikaia Kniaginia) or Великая Княжна (Velikaia Knazhna) English grand duke; grand duchess (sometimes Grand Prince, Grand Princess)
Russian ? English count
Russiaan? English prince, princess

As you can see, in English we have several spellings for the same title, I was just wondering what the actual Russian terms are.

According to Longman and Oxford online dictionaries, there is such word “tzaritsa”. The following versions of the female Russian Imperial title are available: tsarina, tzarina, and czarina.

I have a feeling that tsaritsa, tsarina and czarina are English versions of the Russian term.

What is the Russian term for the wife of the head of the Russian empire? Can you spell it in Russian characters?

The Russian term for the wife of the head of the Russian empire is Tzatitsa, which is spelt as "Царица" in Russian.
