And of course, Poland almost got a new Royal Family in the 30s in the shape of George and Marina of GB. Hitler put pay to that little plan but it's interesting that today's Duke of Kent could have been King of Poland.

I'm not so sure about this. Looks like a pretender to me, I mean, all of the signs are there. Futhermore, I would question those who claim to be directly descended from a royal line, and advertise it on Myspace (excluding Aleaxnder Schaumburg-Lippe who has a legit page of course.)

Lenska ....

I found surname Łubieński and this family recived a title of counts in 1798 by Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia.

There are surnames Lubieński and Lubiński too.

Just found http://royalorderkingdomofpoland.com/ ???


But be honest everyone could/can write that he/she is a descendent of Queen or King of something.

The thing is, these "Orders" usually equal some kind of con which involves selling membership and she does have Knighthoods and Damehoods for sale on Ebay. Not good.

Though the site you linked is in Polish, I noticed Maria Vladimirovna on the list. Which is interesting because I haven't thought of her position in regard to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia etc.

Yes, she means that she has right according with Constitution of the Kingdom of Poland from 1815.

Indeed. Though I wonder; if Maria ever did get the Russian throne back, would she still use her other European titles?

Questions of kind of this - what would happen if?

If Maria someday get back the Russian throne she could use few other titles which Tsars had used.
"The official titles of the Russian Emperors were: Emperor and Autocrat of all the Russias, of Moscow, Kiev, Vladimir and Novgorod, Czar of Kazan, Astrakan, Poland, Siberia and the Taurian Peninsula, Lord of Pskov, Grand Duke of Smolensk, Lithuania, Volhynia, Podoloia and Finland, Prince of Estland, Livland, Kurland, Ingermanland, Bialystok, Karelia, Iougria, Perm, Viatka, Bulgaria and other countries, Lord and Grand Duke of Nizni-Novgorod, Tchernigov, Riazan, Polotsk, Rostov, Jaroslav, Bjelozersk, Oudoria, Obdoria, Kondinia, Vitebsk and Mstislav, Ruler of the Polar Regions, Lord of the lands of Iveria, Kartalinia, Georgia, Karbardinia and Armenia, Hereditary and Supreme Lord of the Tcherkessian Princes, of the Princes of the Mountains and of others, Heir to Norway, of the Duchy Schleswig-Holstein, of Stormarn, of Dithmarschen and of Oldenburg." (from Henri van Oene's site)

Btw At the moment she use the title of Queen of the Russian Empire of Poland or smth like that. But our historian say that her climets hasn't basics becouse Polish Sejm removed Romanovs from our throne and otherside during I WW Nicholas II recognized Regency Council and resign.

Again, there are numerous royal lines of Poland, including the Tsars of Russia. It's not like it is in Austria or Germany where the dynasty and the heir is obvious. Most Eastern European monarchies were elected monarchies, very similar to how the Holy Father, the Pope is elected. A council of nobles gets together and decides.

A lot of the Eastern European nobility were repressed or even murdered by the coming of the Communists. Even in my family we had to hide or destroy a lot of our artifacts and papers showing our nobility and listing of lands and honors. If you didn't and were caught by the commies, you were either executed or sent to a slave-labor camp.

So I can understand that nobles and potential royals of Eastern European heritage may not have the resources to pay for "proper" advertising of their claim.

I don't think it really matters where they present their case so much as they present their case.

Myspace is actually ideal considering the millions of people on there and the social networking aspect.

In my case, I chose Blogger because it simply has a better blogging engine than Myspace. Plus I'm not advertising a claim to royalty, though I can do so based on some of my ancestry.

Only from morganatically marriage.

About Jagiellon dynasty Jagiellon dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Poland the dynasty in male line end in 1572 in female end in 1596.
After them we've got the Vasa dynasty - the Polish branch with Sigismund III Vasa (Zygmunt III).

It looks like Władysław II Jagiello descendants are not even Polish anymore, of course many Polish kings were not Polish too.
There is something interesting about Stanislaw Poniatowski children from his morganatic marriage with Elzbieta Szydlowska. They all had last name Grabowski, after Szydlowska first husband name. Her husband passed away in 1789, and all her and Poniatowski children were born during formal marriage with Grabowski. I understand that those children did not inherited title, estate ect, because of marriage status. But still it was strange, Poniatowski never gave them his last name, or some different name, that they always carried their mother's 1st husband last name. Were they ever officially recognized by Poniatowski as his children?
