I've heard that one of the Princes of the House of Hesse (I think he's called Philipp, although I'm not entirely sure) is the current pretender/claimant. There's an interview with him on the first page of this thread: Electoral and Grand Ducal House of Hesse (Brabant)
. He says that if Finland ever restores it's monarchy, he will keep his promise and become the King. A member of the House of Hesse was also the King of Finland during it's short period as a monarchy - I find this interesting. I wonder why this particular house was chosen and what their connection is to Finland.
This reminds me of Iceland, who was also a monarchy for a short while (during WWII?) due to a union with Denmark.
