When I was on the "Marie Stuart" web page some years ago, I found there were a number of current claimants to the Stuart Descent. Not all of them claim the descent themselves, but others who are royalists claim it for them. Sophie Princess in Bavaria is descended from one of the daughters of a King James of England (I forget which James), so it is maternal descent. When I was on that site, one person claimed that he was descended from the twins born to Marie Stuart and Bothwell. He said the twins were spirited out of Scotland to France by Lady Mar. Lady Mar was one of the Hungarian nobles who attended Marie Stuart.

So there are lots of claimants. One of them was disproved a few years back as a fake.

It is interesting to me that Sophie's mother was a Douglas, a famous Scottish noble name which figured in the descent of Princess Alice of Gloucester.

Thanks for gorgeous pics, Queen Helena.
Oh I see, Brazillian, we are talking about Prince Ludwig, not the Duke Max descendants.

The jacobite succession comes through the last bavarian Queen Marie Therese. And Prince Ludwig is a descendant of her even twice as his grandparents Prince Ludwig and Princess Irmingard where cousins. Ludwig was a son of Queen Marie Therese's son Prince Franz and Princess Irmingard was a daughter of Crown prince Rupprecht-

Interesting. So, the members of the Brazilian Imperial Family, as well other members of the House of Orleans-Braganza, are in the Jacobite Line of Succession, because of their descent from Princess Maria Elizabeth of Bavaira (1914-2011).

Posts discussing the former Imperial properties have been moved to the Brazilian Imperial Palaces & residences thread.

Posts discussing Prince Rafael outside of the context of this thread are now in a new thread: Prince Antonio, Princess Christine and Family.

Personal conversations and posts of no relevance to the Imperial Family of Brazil have been removed.
