Prince of Wu
This title is identical in Chinese to that held by the kings of Wu, but it is common in English to distinguish between the scions of the imperial dynasties (translated "prince") and the dynasties of independent lords (translated "king"). This translation is somewhat infelicitous for the early Han princes, who were quite autonomous and powerful before being reined in after an unsuccessful revolt in 154 BC.
