Princess (Japanese: プリンセス Princess) is one of several classes that can be found in Fire Emblem. It is exclusive to members of female royalty in the Fire Emblem series.

In Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, the class belonged exclusively to Celica and in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War to Lachesis. Celica has the ability to use swords, black magic, and white magic, and promotes from a priestess, whereas Lachesis uses swords and staves and promotes to a Master Knight.

Though Celica and Lachesis are the only characters that use the Princess class, they are by no means the only princesses in the series. For example, Eirika of The Sacred Stones is the princess of Renais, though her class is technically Lord.
