Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *kъnędzь, borrowed from Germanic, from Proto-Germanic *kuningaz. The /dz/ is due to the progressive palatalization. Cognate to Old Church Slavonic кънѧзь (kŭnęzĭ). Russian княги́ня (knjagínja, princess) has preserved the original, Germanic g sound.

Doublet of ксёндз (ksjondz), a borrowing from Polish.
