Christians if Michael is the only archangel, why is he described as one of the chief princes ?

He isn’t the only archangel: Gabriel and Raphael are archangels also
“In the Old Testament Book of Daniel, St. Michael is mentioned twice. The first time as one who helped Daniel, and the second time he is mentioned with regard to the end times of the world when he will stand for the "children of thy people."
His next mention comes in the Epistle of St. Jude in the New Testament, where St. Michael is said to guard the tombs of Moses and Eve and has contended with Satan over the body of Moses.
The final mention is in Revelation, where St. Michael and his angels, do battle with the dragon (Satan)
This we know Michael the archangel will play a pivotal role in the end times

There is no reason to believe that Michael is the only archangel, and in fact the description as "one of the chief princes" contradicts that idea. I think the misconception is because so few of the angels are mentioned by name, Michael being one of them. But aside from Gabriel, no other angels are mentioned by name. That certainly doesn't mean that the two of them are the only angels, or archangels as the case may be.

The original Christian Church does not teach that he is the only Archangel, because we simply don't know how many God created.
