Bok Mashka! I'm from Croatia.

I'll provide you the link to the site called; Hrvatski Plemićki Savez;
http://skola.sys.hr/plemstvo/

It is organization of Croatian noble families. It has very useful information, and also list of all noble families and their webpages. If you know Croatian, there should be no problem.:)

Pozdrav!

Aimone, Duke of Aosta and his wife were King Tomislav II and Queen Irene of Croatia from 1941-1943. They never actually visited their "kingdom", however.

Croatia has many princes and princess. Otto, head of the House of Habsburg, claims the title of King of Croatia and his wife Regina claims the title of Queen of Croatia. In fact, all the living members of the House of Habsburg claim the title of Prince of Croatia - including The Archduchess of Austria-Este, daughter of The King of the Belgians.

I'd love to see Croatia electing a member of the House of Habsburg (preferably one of Otto's descendants) as King/Queen of Croatia, though expecting that could be a bit unrealistic. Monarchy under the Habsburgs would benefit Croatia in so many ways - it would calm the political situation, as the head of state would no longer be associated with politics, and tourism would bloom, and Croatia would become politically much closer to Europe as a kingdom headed by a Habsburg.

Yes, that's true. However, according to Giulio Vignoli's book The sovrano sconosciutto he had an office for Croatian affairs in Florence and later in Rome.

It is interesting that his former counsellor, Count Gyula Cseszneky, a Hungarian-Croatian nobleman in Italian service later was proclaimed Grand Voivode (Grand Duke) of Macedonia and actually reigned between August-September 1943 in a very limited area of South-Western Macedonia.

Another interesting fact is, that the current Duke of Aosta, . i.e. King Tomislav's son, bears the given name Zvonimir which must have been given to him in honor of King Zvonimir of Croatia. The Duke of Aosta is considered by some Croatian monarchist a rival pretender to Archduke Otto, and is sytled as Zvonimir II, titular king of Croatia.

Karl I was the last king of Croatia his reign ended November, 1918. The little boy in the picture is
the Crown Prince of Croatia Otto von Habsburg born 1912.

His grandson Ferdinand Zvonimir Habsburg was christened on 20 September 1997 in Zagreb cathedral
by Cardinal Franjo Kuharić. Zvonimir was the king of Croatia from 1075 to 1089

In 1925 the Croatians celebrated one thousand years of the Croatian kingdom (925 - 1925)

Does this mean that there are no descendants but the Habsburg and Aosta?

Is there any role for any Creation royals in public? I know there is no king or queen, but do the current claimants do anything in Croatia? Charity?

The noble Frankopan family who were historically the counts of Krk, Modruš, and Trsat are the closest Croatia has to any native royalty. The head of the house (disputed) is Louis Doimi de Lupis Frankopan.

Hereditarily, Louis is not the heir in his family, he is just the only one making a public claim to being a Frankopan royal. His branch might also not be the most senior remaining branch of this princely house, just the more vocal. There are also Zrinskis descendants but they aren't making public claims to the throne or even to being princes. There is a nobility association which kicked him out for making his claim, saying he was not the heir and should be happy with the title he has. So they may have someone else in mind or maybe don't want anyone with pretensions to rock the boat. If they return the monarchy one day in would be more likely someone proposed by the nobility association from a princely house who is Croatian. I believe his family has lived outside Croatia since the 13th century and that is how old the supposed link to the Frankopans is.

Doesn't Lady Nicholas Windsor belong to the Frankopan Family or am I thinking of someone else? I didn't realize that they were Croatian.

There are monarchists movements in Croatia?

I'd like to see Prince Amedeo of Belgium as the new King of Croatia.

HRH Prince Amedeo of Savoy, Duke of Savoy, does not have anything to do with the Crown of Croatia and he is anyway the Head of the Royal House of Italy.
