Didn't see anyone respond to this question.  My English dictionary says 
that the term applies to royalty and is the spouse of either King or 
Queen.  However, I think it can also be applied to lower levels of nobility 
in the same way.  Though my German dictionary does not have the word, I 
would guess that the term is similar.  These women are probably connected 
to some level of nobility.  Is there any other indication that this might 
be the case such as an unusual surname?
