Sepengetahuanku, 'Tengku Mahkota' atau 'Tunku Mahkota' (Crown Prince) merupakan satu jawatan yang diwujudkan di istana negara/negeri yang diperintah secara Monarki (Monarchy) sebagai satuu jawatan'Bakal Raja'. jawatan ini turut wujud di negara-negara asing seperti Jepun, Arab Saudi, Jordan, UAE, Britain, Sepanyol, Belanda, Belgium dan lain-lain. Kalau di negara barat, bakal raja ini tidak terhad kepada anak lelaki tetapi terbuka untuk 'anak sulung' tanpa mengira lelaki atau perempuan.
Di Malaysia, sebuah negara yang paling banyak 'Raja' di dunia, jawatan bakal raja ini menggunakan pelbagai nama seperti Tengku Mahkota (untuk Johor, Pahang dan Kelantan), Raja Muda (untuk Selangor, Perlis, Kedah dan Perak), Yang di Pertuan Muda untuk Terengganu manakala Negeri Sembilan pula menggunakan kaedah lain. Untuk cerita yang ni, bacalah blog saya di bawah tajuk 'Raja-raja Melayu'. Kali ni kita nakkenal dengan Tunku Mahkota Johor saja.
