A prince is a male heir to the throne. He is usually a son of a king and/or queen and is in a position where he legitimately could inherit his country's throne.

Princes in One Piece

Canonically, ten princes (current and former) have been introduced in the series.

Wapol was formerly the prince of the former Drum Kingdom.[2] When his father died, he ascended to the throne, only to flee a pirate attack and then be deposed by his people. He is now the king of the Black Drum Kingdom.

Bellett was the first prince to be introduced in the series as a prince. After becoming a pirate and seeking revenge against Emporio Ivankov, Ivankov transformed him into a woman using his devil fruit powers. Last seen in Impel Down, Bellett’s current status and whereabouts are unknown.[3]

Fukaboshi, Ryuboshi and Manboshi are, respectively, the first, second, and third princes of the Ryugu Kingdom.[4] They were the first current princes to be introduced in the series, and are considered the strongest fighters in their kingdom’s army.

The four sons of the Vinsmoke Family are the princes of the Germa Kingdom.[5] Technically the first prince to debut in the series, Vinsmoke Sanji is the kingdom’s third prince, although he renounced his royal status when he left the kingdom 13 years ago. His brothers, Vinsmoke Ichiji, Vinsmoke Niji, and Vinsmoke Yonji, are the first, second, and fourth princes respectively; due to their family’s and kingdom’s aggressive imperialism, their primary duty as princes is to act as war commanders in their nation’s military, Germa 66.

Loki is the prince of Elbaf. So far, he has only been introduced by name, and is yet to make his debut.[6]
