Fact of the Day: Lady Princess

For many centuries, even the daughters of kings were not called princesses. Before the title of princess became common, most female royals had the title of Lady.

Interesting but what centuries?
Henry V111's two daughters were called Princesses Mary (born 1516) and Elizabeth (born 1533) - so it must have been way, way back.

That makes sense since I've read a few historical romances where the women are all called Lady Mary or Lady Genevieve.
