Emperor Go-Daigo's ideal was the Engi era (901-923) during the reign of Emperor Daigo, a period of direct Imperial Rule.
The Restoration was ostensibly a revival of the older ways, but, in fact, the Emperor had his eye set on an Imperial dictatorship like that of the Emperor of China.
Go-Daigo ordered Imperial Prince Kaneyoshi to Kyūshū and Nitta Yoshisada and Imperial Prince Tsuneyoshi to Hokuriku, and so forth, dispatching his sons all over, so that they could oppose the Northern Court.

 A Glossary of European Noble, Princely, Royal and Imperial Titles
A curious factoid is that, with the finalization of Prince Charles' divorce, all of the heirs to kingdoms in Europe are unmarried.
In English, a prince is the child (and in the male line, a grandchild) of the king or queen-regnant (and in the direct line of succession, the great-grandchildren of the sovereign), and are styled a "royal highness".
In French usage, Prince Albert of Monaco, as heir to Prince Rainier, is a "prince-heredetaire", and Prince Alois, the heir of Hans-Adam of Liechtenstein is, in German usage, an "Erbprinz".

 Napoleon - Interviews - Jean-Claude Lachnitt
In the case of the Prince Impérial, certain texts written with a future government in mind radically transform the view unfortunately left for posterity by malicious historians.
The son of Napoleon III was born crown prince and was raised as such until the age of fourteen.
The dynasts of the Imperial family are in any case of great interest to the historian and allow us to look at the events of the century which is coming to an end in an entirely different way.

Almost as compelling is the narrative of the fallout within the army from the death of the Prince and the struggle his mother, Empress Eugenie, endures in an attempt to come to terms with his dramatic passing.
