Tsarevna (Царевна) was the daughter of a Tsar and Tsaritsa[1][2] of Russia before the 18th century. The title is similar to a princess, as the daughter of a king or as applied to the wife of a Tsarevich.[3]

All of them were unmarried, except for the daughters of Ivan V who was born in the late 17th century, and grew old in convents or in the Terem Palace.
