Female Pretenders To Abolished Monarchies?

Who else are female pretenders?

Only ones I can think of are:

HIH Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna, Empress of Russia
HIH Princess Yi Haewon, Empress of Korea

I read about Sophie of Liechtenstein, nee Bavaria, having a claim to "the Jacobite claim to the thrones of England and Scotland will likely pass to the Hereditary Princess (Sophie), following the current holder, her childless uncle Franz, Duke of Bavaria, and her father."

However, "Salic Law prevents a female from becoming head of the House of Wittelsbach." I'm not sure this means she can be a pretender to the English and Scotish throne or if it would just past to her eldest son.

Either way I Sophie of Leichtenstein is the only one I can think of who is a female pretender.

Wow. I guess there aren't a lot of female pretenders?

How about in African monarchies?

Well, she is not really a pretender yet, since her father is still alive, but I get your point.

Princess Rosa Paula Iribagiza Mwambutsa (b.1934) is recognized by some to be the Head of the Royal House of Burundi. She is the sister of the last king of Burundi, who was killed in 1972.
