When did the 'master' bedroom become the 'principal' bedroom?

I picked up a copy of a Canadian shelter mag and noted that their term of choice for the bedroom occupied by the one(s) at the top of the food chain in the given dwelling is the "principal" bedroom, supplanting use of the long-time favorite, "master" bedroom.

I suppose it makes sense, as it eliminates any intended or unintended gender reference from the older term. Those hip Canadians. They've got all the good design shows, and now this.
