From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tsarevich, or Czarevich, (Russian: Царевич) is a Slavic term for the Tsar's son. Under the Pauline house law, the term was discontinued. The tsar's eldest son (and Heir Apparent), came to be called Tsesarevich. His younger brothers were called Grand Dukes.

Alexei Nikolaevich, the only son of Nicholas II, was the last member of Russian royalty to be called Tsarevich.

In olden times, the term was also applied to descendants of the khans (tsars) of Kazan, Kasimov, and Siberia after these khanates had been annexed by Russia. See Tsareviches of Siberia, for example.
