This article analyzes the word “prince” as a mean of reflection fragment of a language picture of the world "ruler" during the reign of Alexei Mikhailovich. It is proved that the word “prince” translates and interprets in different texts not only as the concept of 'the emperor, the king', but also preserves the semantics of 'a person who has a generic title bestowed as a privileged class, and lost the ability to drive'.

Keywords: Grand Duke, a title, a fragment of Russian language picture of the world of XVII century.

Column: General and Comparative Historical Linguistics
