And that's the problem I have with many English royals...there isn't anything in my history books to the styles and titles of English Royals. I guess one who need to research original written sources to find out exactly how they were referenced. Unfortunately I don't have access to those sources.
He was called prince in the Robin Hood movies, which is how most people these days know him --but how early in the written record was he called prince?
I can't find anything in my books or online at historical sites where he was called Prince. Nor can I find anything on how he was styled prior to the reign of Richard I. On Richardís accession in July 1189, John was made Count of Mortain a title that became his usual style during the reign.
