Gege (Manchu: ᡤᡝᡤᡝ; Chinese: 格格; pinyin: Gégé; Wade–Giles: Ko2-ko2) is the Manchurian word for an unmarried daughter. During the Qing Dynasty it was the Manchu style of an imperial-born princess of an emperor. Daughters of the first ranked princes also used the same title.
When a Manchu prince had concubines, the status of the wives are, from highest to lowest: difujin (the official wife), cefujin (the first rank concubine) and gege. Historically, there were many gege; few ever ascended to the status of cefujin. Only difujin and cefujin names are recorded in the royal family lists of family members.
