I sincerely doubt that the Poster known as the duke of Saxe-Coburg is a Coburg because the head of the family Prince Andreas has never changed his surname to Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg ...

there are no other dukes of Saxe-Coburg ...

as for Count Gudenus - sadly, he is a member of the Gudenus family. He is in his 60s, lives in France, and is married to a Vietnamese woman, and has one daughter.

His birthday and everything matches up, but that doesn't really prove anything.

June 7, 2005 will be the centennial of, in want of a better word, the ending of the Swedish-Norwegian union, Norway's independence and making of our own nation, and thus the centennial of the Norwegian royal family :) The Norwegian royal family was "elected", meaning that Prince Carl of Denmark demanded a referendum deciding if Norway was going to be a republic or a monarchy. And the little royal family came to Norway in November 1905 to a wore-down palace(the Swedish king didn't stay in it so often).

I think there will be celebrations throughtout the year, also in other countries than Norway, such as UK (since Queen Maud was British, and King Olav was born there), Sweden and Denmark (since King Haakon was Danish).

Anyway, it's a big thing in Norway that involves a lot of royal activity

In case of Norway: The current royal family was elected by the people in 1905. The man elected to be the king was the Danish Prince Carl who was married to the British Princess Maud. In this case I think major league politics played a part, as the newly independent Norway depended on the major players in Europe to be able to stand on their own legs at first. Carl and Maud, who were related to most of Europe's royal families: Great Britain, Russia, Greece, Denmark, Sweden, Prussia... had an excellent starting point.

Earlier in Greece they elected Prince Vilhelm of Denmark for many of the same reasons the Norwegians elected his nephew: his connections.

Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte was adopted by the Swedish king as his successor.

Belgium became a monarchy of its own when the heir to the throne of the Netherlands was a female, as far as I understand it. The line to the throne back then in Belgium could only come to a male.


Monarchies in Europe tend to go far back, and at one point in history one of the chiefs gathered more power than the others. Or at various other points in the years to come when someone was more political clever than his opponents, or something like that.

(You also have the story of the English cricket star who was offered the throne of Albania.)

Could you elaborate on that cricket star being offered the throne of Albania. When did that happen? It seems a little weird to me.

I can't recall where I read it, but the cricket star was, from what I googled, C. B. Fry. http://www.google.com/search?q=crick...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

No, that was Luxembourg when Wilhelmina became the Dutch Queen.

Belgium became independent from The Netherlands in 1830 after the Belgian Revolution.

And The Netherlands is official a monarchy since 1815. But in 1579 The Netherlands became independent, because the Eight Years' War which was lead by Willem, Prince of Orange. After Willem was murdered, his son became the leader as stadtholder. All stadtholders (holland, zeeland, friesland) that follow were members of the family van Oranje-Nassau ( the present royal family). In 1794 Napoleon won the war with The Netherlands and made of the country a Kingdom, with his brother as King. When Napoleon was gone, the family van Oranje-Nassau came back and the son of the last stadtholder became king.
