Not really. There have been attempts to establish an independent Finnish monarchy, but they've never been successful. At this point there is no known Royal Finnish Family, nor anyone who claims to be a pretender to a Finnish throne.

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.

Charles I, King of Finland and Karelia, Duke of Åland, Grand Duke of Lapland, Lord of Kaleva and the North managed to stay on the throne for 63 days; from October 9th 1918 to december 14th 1918. The German Kaiser had supported Finnish independance so when the conservative Finnish senate tried to turn Finland into a monarchy Kaiser Wilhelm's brother in Law volunteered for the job. But after Germany was defeated in WWI the German support for the project failed and Finland was proclaimed the republic we know and respect today

Actually, Finland was part of Russia once, as was Poland. The last imperial Family of Russia used to go to a hunting lodge that Nicholas's father, Alexander III had built in Poland, and they would get on the Royal yacht and cruise around the Baltic among the Finnish part of Russia and the outlying islands.

The current presidential palace in Helsinki was meant to be the royal palace for the finnish King. It was also imperial palace for the russian imperial family from 1837 when the finnish senate bought it.

I don't think so. The finnish people seems happy to be a republic although many of them are interested in following the swedish royal family.

I may be wrong but i have never heard that there would be many monarchists in Finland.

Kokoomuslaiset haluavat Suomeen monarkian – "Kuningas olisi vahva arvojohtaja" | Kotimaa | Uutiset | Ilkka

The party meetings, the so-called peruskauraa has undergone a party inside the future initiatives that seek to change the party line on.

The conservatives ' Party Conference initiatives were as high as 248 pieces, and they were processed through the weekend.

Much of the controversy caused by a change in the Finnish national anthem Finlandiaksi initiative was rejected. Instead of receiving the food shops were adopted, the initiative of champagne which caused much hilarity in the meeting there.

The conservative party, therefore, wishes to champagne in the food stores.

There were also initiatives to amend the law on alcohol, to deregulate the social and health care, and a variety of subsidies. To change the shape of the Secretaries of State of Finland. Yes. The mouth of the River, Studying the citizenry demanded that Finland shall immediately begin preparations for the transition to the current President of the Act after the period of monarchy.

In this way, the Association based its claim:

"Finland is currently valid, the President of the Republic. The powers of the President, however, has recently been cut, and it is necessary to ask, is it no longer makes sense to keep the expensive election every six years. If the head of State role in Finland is no longer just represents the value of the European action, as it should be and the monarchy in this luontevampi solution. The monarchy has been found in favor of the solution across Europe, and during his days outside of politics should be easily samaistuttava the value of the head of the monarch. The monarchy also would bring the country much-needed continuity in johtoomme a long time. "

The mouth of the River, Studying the citizenry-Association President Anne Pynttäri agreed to to open in more detail his thoughts on why the Finnish political system should change the Secretaries of State.

Pynttäri says that the King or Queen would be a strong leader of the value of the

, Finland. – The world is changing so fast that people could do with something permanent. What better help than the beloved King of the

family. Pynttäri points out that in Sweden people love

kuninkaallisiaan. -The President does not have a lot of power, he is the closest in the nation. When it comes to the role, the better is the closest representation would work the monarchy.

And the monarchy should be Pynttärin, even at a cost, if the monarchy tuotteistaisi.

– Yes, the väyrysmukejakin are sold as soon as they launch the darkest. I believe that it would finance itself. The cost of the monarchy should be financed by the Mukeilla, of course, be controlled.

Now, however, it became so successful that the initiative.

The party, the Government considered that the initiative should be rejected, because the party has already endorsed the current state of our Constitution ... is called since 1919.

The party has rejected the initiative, the Board of Governors would very likely unless the schedule because of the confusion, the whole initiative would be

. The authors of the initiative were the candidates for the Presidency of the events at the same time on Friday, when the initiative should have been dealt with. As one of the authors was not present at the time, the initiative h crashed.

And it crashed for the first time.

The monarchy-the initiative is enlivened by a party meeting, for more than 20 years.

The story is about, on the banks of the river mouth, Studying the citizenry-then Chairman of the Association during the Association has been established with the desire to export the Esa Mänttäri party back to its roots. Because of the tradition, of course, Finland should be Kingdom.

The conservative party is, in fact, at the beginning of the time supported the monarchy.

It is only about a hundred years time.
