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

But the people of Finland never wanted a monarchy like Norway, Denmark and Sweden?

The Kingdom of Finland had a national anthem.

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.
