Furienna, thank you for answering my questions about Charles I/II and James II. But why does the fact that Charles I and James II being Catholic negate the possibility of their having had affairs? King Louis XIV of France was Roman Catholic and had like a gazillion mistresses, all during his marriages (I think he had two marriages). I don't think being Catholic eliminates a king from the list of possible cheaters. But to be fair, I also have not heard/read anything that implies Charles I had affairs. Of James II, I'm not too sure. I seem to recall something about him having illegitimate children. Wasn't the Pretender King James III Stuart actually illegitimate?

I haven't heard of any affairs or illegitimate children of King James II.
James Stuart (the Old Pretender or "James III") was the son of King James II and his second Catholics wife, Mary of Modena (he was raised in the French Court in Catholic religion). He was legitimate and recognized King of England by Jacobites (and King Louis XIV).
He married Maria Clementina Sobieska (granddaughter of Polish King John III, if I am not mistaken) and had 2 children, Charles (the Young Pretender or Bonnie Prince Charles) and Henry.

I guess I just meant he was influenced religiously by his wives, and that he thought more about religion than his brother. I don't know. It might not have anything to do with it.

Oh yeah you're right! He tried unsuccessfully to raise an army but Bonnie Prince Charley had much more success in doing so.

According to Wikipedia, Bonnie Prince Charley's wife, Princess Louise of Stolberg-Gedern, had an affair during their marriage. She cheated with Count Vittorio Alfieri. Louise and Vittorio apparently had issue and in the 19th century, two of their descendents claimed that their ancestors were actually Charles and Louise, but their claims were proved false (I wonder how in the 19th century, long, long before a DNA test was possible)
and it is said that Charles and Louise did not have any children.

the reasons that Louise said she left Charles was because he had an affair with Clementina Walkinshaw and he was, she claimed, physically abusive.
He had a daughter with Clementina, named Charlotte.
Louise left him in 1780, and it says that he legitimized Charlotte in 1783 by signing an "act of legitimation" (but where was this recognized as valid legislation? Legislation has to be an act of a legislative body, like parliament, no? What parliament was passing laws concerning a pretender succession?) This "law" apparently had no recognition anywhere, because Charlotte never took her father's pretender title. She died as Charlotte, pretender Duchess of Albany (her father "granted" her this title under the pretense that he could do so) and the mother of three illegitimate children (she never married). The father of these children was Prince Ferdinand de Rohan.
Here are the source links:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Edward_Stuart
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlot...hess_of_Albany

According to Wikipedia, James II had seven illegitimate children all during his two marriages. He had these children with two different mistresses: Arabella Churchill and Catherine Sedley.
The whole information is here:

I know tha Edward VII had 7,800 lovers, according to his intimate diary, between which there was the great-grandmother of Camila Parker, Alice Keppel, Lilly Langtry, the countess of Warwikc, actresses as Sarah Bernhardt, to whom the doctors had that amputated her leg for an accident, and others people offered her 10,000 dollars in order that it she was exposing her leg in a museum. She refused, and had a son, Maurice, of a Belgian prince. The princess of Sagan was other of his favorite lovers.


I that this king had a Mexican son, that a few years ago it he went out in the Mexican television, already was big the gentleman and, apparently, it he had family. I dont remember his name.

Yes, you're completely right. It's always best to have multiple sources. Wikipedia was just my initial foray into the subject though. I haven't actually read any books about the Stuart dynasty, except one book several years ago that I read about the trial of Charles I.
I wish I could remember the title and author. It was a book I picked up at random in the library and could not put it down.

Seven thousand eight hundred lovers? When did the Windsors start making the contents of "intimate diaries" public?

I don't know about the diaries, but I know that it is impossible for anyone, no matter how sexually active, to have that many lovers. But a king? There is not enough time in anyone's life, let alone a working monarch, to be that busy! Absolutely the only it might happen is if the King had had like 100 lovers in his room at once or something. But Edward VII was so obese, I don't think his heart could endure 100 lovers a night!!!

It's no secret, and it wasn't at the time, that Edward VII as Prince of Wales and King had a roving eye, but where did the figure of 7,800 come from?

I read this information in a book that extracted the " very interesting " magazine, Mexican magazine, the name of the book is a " History of the sex " and counts, not only the sexual adventures of the European monarches, but up to of the same popes, as the Borgias.

King Albert of Belgium was unfaithful to Queen Paola and i think that there was a story that they were seriously considering divorcing because it was so bad, and he fathered at least one daughter, there prob. are more but you'd have to check up on that one...

My humble opinion, after a long marriage who can say hasnt been unfaithful.For the good of the monarchy some couples try to remain together as long as possible, no matter what it costs, or how unhappy they are.

We don't know the private links of the couple, generally speaking, sometimes it's a very strange alchemy! In the case of king Albert and Queen Paola, after some deep disagreement, they have found ( or they have to find ) a gentlemen agreement for life together for the necessity of the Crown - may be- but also for themselves. It's look successful, good point for those who need some example like this one!
