In Numbers 7, we are told about the special offerings the princes of the Tribes brought to the Tabernacle. This is not the only time we hear of this position. Princes are present in Joshua 9 also, for example.

How many princes were there per tribe? Was there one per tribe? Per family?

One per tribe, as seen in Numbers 1:4, and 1:16. See Also Hizkuni on 1:16 who says this explicitly.
