  Caesar - MSN Encarta
Maximian was called Caesar until 286, when he was given the title Augustus; two assistant rulers, intended to be successors to the Augustuses, were selected and given the title Caesar.
Although this complex system did not survive, the title continued to be used for designated heirs to the imperial title so that it came to signify a “prince”.
The imperial significance of the title Caesar was preserved in medieval and modern derivations, including the German “kaiser” and the Russian “tsar”.

 Caesar (title)
Caesar originally meant "hairy", which suggests that the Iulii Caesares, a specific branch of the gens Iulia bearing this name, were conspicuous for having fine heads of hair (alternatively, given the Roman sense of humour, it could be that the Iulii Caesares were conspicuous for going bald).
Nevertheless, Caesar had become such an integral part of the imperial dignity that its place was immediately restored by the fourth Emperor in 69, Titus Flavius Vespasianus, whose natural son, Titus Flavius Vespasianus became "Titus Caesar Vespasianus".
Likewise, the junior sub-Emperors retained the title "Caesar" upon accession to the senior purple.

 caesar
Caesar: title of the intended successor to the Roman throne.
By now, caesar was no longer a name, but a title that could be used by the emperor himself -who could also call himself Augustus- and the intended successor, who was appointed by adoption.
The exception that proves the rule is Vitellius (69), who preferred to see himself as consul perpetuus, 'forever consul': the title of caesar was, in his view, too much associated with monarchy, and he wanted a title with republican connotations.
