Ancient archetype. To some extent, many Prince heroes, while primarily another archetype, will have a part of the Lover archetype within them, since very often stories culminate in the union of Prince and Princess as a symbol of the new, usually benevolent order established by the younger generation – and  a union tends to be preceded by a bit of lovemaking. Famous classical Lover: Lancelot. Modern example: James Bond. See Archetypes.
