No, I'm afraid I did mean Duke of Lancaster and Duke of Normandy.

The Sovereign is styled as Duke of Lancaster, regardless of gender, It is customary at formal dinners for the The Loyal Toast to the crown be announced as "The Queen, Duke of Lancaster".

Relatively the same can be said about the title of the Duke of Normandy, although there are different historical backgrounds for the titles.

Emperor Pedro I of Brazil (King Pedro IV of Portugal) had 16 names: Pedro de Alcântara Francisco Antônio João Carlos Xavier de Paula Miguel Rafael Joaquim José Gonzaga Pascoal Cipriano Serafim.

His full title, as Emperor of Brazil, was: His Imperial Majesty the Lord Dom Pedro, the First, by the Grace of God and Unanimous Acclamation from the People, Constitutional Emperor and Perpetual Defender of Brazil.

His son, Emperor Pedro II, had 15 names: Pedro de Alcântara João Carlos Leopoldo Salvador Bibiano Francisco Xavier de Paula Leocádio Miguel Gabriel Rafael Gonzaga.

His full title, as Emperor of Brazil, was: His Imperial Majesty the Lord Dom Pedro, the Second, by the Grace of God and Unanimous Acclamation from the People, Constitutional Emperor and Perpetual Defender of Brazil.

Emperor Pedro II's eldest daughter and heir was named: Isabel Cristina Leopoldina Augusta Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga ("only" 9 names).

Her full title, at the Fall of the Monarchy, in 1889, was: Her Imperial and Royal Highness the Lady Dona Isabel Cristina Leopoldina Augusta Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga, Princess Imperial of Brazil, Princess of Orleans, Countess of Eu.

At her death, in 1921, as Head of the Imperial House, her full title was: Her Imperial and Royal Highness the Lady Dona Isabel Cristina Leopoldina Augusta Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga, Head of the Brazilian Imperial House, Princess of Brazil, Princess of Orleans-Braganza, Princess of Orleans, Countess of Eu.

Today, the Imperial Family is still carrying on with big names. The current member of the Brazilian Imperial Family, with their full names and titles (I didn't include their orders of chivalry):

1. His Imperial and Royal Highness the Lord Dom Luiz Gastão Maria José Pio Miguel Gabriel Gonzaga, Head of the Brazilian Imperial House, Prince of Brazil, Prince of Orleans-Braganza.

2. His Imperial and Royal Highness the Lord Dom Bertrand Maria José Pio Januário Miguel Gabriel Rafael Gonzaga, Prince Imperial of Brazil, Prince of Orleans-Braganza.

3. His Royal Highness the Lord Dom Antônio João Maria José Jorge Miguel Gabriel Rafael Gonzaga, Prince of Brazil, Prince of Orleans-Braganza.

4. Her Royal Highness the Lady Dona Cristina Maria Isabel, Princess of Brazil, Princess of Orleans-Braganza (she was born as Her Highness Princess Christine Marie Elisabeth of Ligne).

5. His Royal Highness the Lord Dom Rafael Antônio Maria José Francisco Miguel Gabriel Gonzaga, Prince of Brazil, Prince of Orleans-Braganza.

6. Her Royal Highness the Lady Amélia Maria de Fátima Josefa Antônia Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga, Princess of Brazil, Princess of Orleans-Braganza.

7. Her Royal Highness the Lady Maria Gabriela Josefa Fernanda Iolanda Micaela Rafaela Gonzaga, Princess of Brazil, Princess of Orleans-Braganza.

8. Her Royal Highness the Lady Dona Isabel Maria Josefa Henriqueta Francisca Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga, Princess of Brazil, Princess of Orleans-Braganza.

9. Her Royal Highness the Lady Dona Eleonora Maria Josefa Rosa Filipa Micaela Gabriela Rafaela Gonzaga, Princess of Ligne, Princess d'Épinoy, Princess d'Amblise, Princess of the Holy Roman Empire, Grandee of Spain.

Normally, a Brazilian Prince name have the following caracteristics:

- Antônio: the first name, by which the Prince will be called.

- João: the second name, usually, given after a Saint (in this case, St. John).

- Maria José: after the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph.

- Jorge: after the godfather (in the casa of a Princess, after a the godmother; in Prince Antônio's case, after Archduke Georg of Austria).

- Miguel Gabriel Rafael: all members of the Family have those three names, given after the Archangels.

- Gonzaga: all members of the Family have this name, given after St. Louis.

I thought Gonzaga was after St. Aloysius.

The children of Queen Elisabeth of Belgium had a few middle names:

Léopold Philippe Charles Albert Meinrad Hubertus Marie Miguel
Charles-Théodore Henri Antoine Meinrad
Marie-José Charlotte Sophie Amélie Henriette Gabrielle


Princess Louise of Thurn and Taxis's middle names were quite a mouthful:

Luisa (Louise) Mathilde Wilhelmine Marie Maximiliane

Prince Max Emanuel of Thurn and Taxis also had a few middle names:

Max Emanuel Maria Albert Paul Isabella Klemens Lamoral

Gloria, Princess of Thurn and Taxis's middle names:

Mariae Gloria Ferdinanda Gerda Charlotte Teutonia Franziska Magarethe Frederike Simone Johanna Joachima Josefine Wilhelmine Huberta

Karl von Habsburg's children's middle names:

Eleonore Jelena Maria del Pilar Iona
Ferdinand Zvonimir Maria Balthus Keith Michal Otto Antal Bahnam Leonhard
Gloria Maria Bogdana Paloma Regina Fiona Gabriela


And finally, Queen Victoria Eugenia and King Alfonso XIII of Spain's children's middle names (I apologize if any of these have been posted before):

Alfonso Pío Cristino Eduardo Francisco Guillermo Carlos Enrique Eugenio Fernando Antonio Venancio Borbón y Battenberg

Jaime Leopoldo Isabelino Enrique Alejandro Alberto Alfonso Víctor Acacio Pedro Pablo María de Borbón y Battenberg

Beatriz Isabel Federica Alfonsa Eugenia Cristina María Teresa Bienvenida Ladislàa de Borbón y Battenberg

María Cristina Teresa Alejandra María de Guadalupe María de la Concepción Ildefonsa Victoria Eugenia de Borbón y Battenberg

Juan Carlos Teresa Silvestre Alfonso de Borbón y Battenberg

Gonzalo Manuel Maria Bernardo Narciso Alfonso Mauricio de Borbón y Battenberg


Could you imagine if you were these royals' husband/wife and you had to memorize all of their names on your wedding day?

It's not ridiculous. It's a matter of tradition.

I agree; it's tradition, not ridiculous. My father's very traditional Catholic family all have many names. They thought that it was strange that I only had first, middle, and last, but for my mother's American family, that is the norm. I do, however, prefer the four names which QEII has given her children, but that's about the rhythm of the names as they're spoken.

Imagine writing that down on the Mortgage agreements! It's crazy how many names they all have, but it's tradition.

I agree Broadway Duchess, I like the four names Queen Elizabeth's children all have but even then 4 is a bit too much. All except William, Harry, Louise and James (out of the immediate family) only have 3 names which I think is a bit better.

That tradition has now ended due to a change in Spanish laws.

How do they remember them and just how big are forms in Spain? - you know - tax returns, drivers licence, passport etc.

I have 9 letters in each of my first 2 names and there are some forms and websites that dont accept that many letters!

I know members of the Imperial Family of Brazil are required to prove, before a judge, that their names are that big, because they do not fit on their documents.
