By saying Jesus is Prince of Peace is to say that Jesus is the "New Solomon". 

Solomon, his name means "the peaceful one", makes peace with the neighboring nations by marrying their princesses. He had 700 wives, princesses, and 300 concubines. He is getting married almost every week! Jesus also marries himself, this time to the Church, unlike Solomon in a polygamous way, but in a monogamous way. The Church becomes the bride of Christ. 

God told David that He will be a father to David's son (2 Samuel 7:11-16). In the same way, Joseph became a father to Jesus. It's a divine drama - God adopts Man, Man adopts God. 

Solomon is the one who builds the first temple and he does it in 7 years. Jesus rebuilds the temple in 3 days.
