Re:

Queen Anne-Marie of Greece is 219th and King Constantine is 420th - that could cause an argument.....:p

Hi!

There is a list that shows something like 3,000 of them in line..all the way through the former Russian Royal Family.

It includes The Greek Royal Family, Danish, Swedish, the former German houses, Bulgarian and Romanian houses.

Obviously the Catholic houses are not included.

I will try and find it for the thread..

And if Queen Victoria had been a male and the House of Hanover continued in the line of births since then and up to Prince Ernst August, he would be king today. But only if the lines continued as they had up to the present time.

And if he had divorced Chantal and then married Caroline as he did, that means she would be Queen of England.

That is just an assumption if everything played out as it has...

If everything plays out the way it has: Ernst August Jr. would sit on the throne - his father married a catholic.

Yes, thank you for the correction. I totally forgot about that one. :)

Don't you think that Caroline would have converted religion for the English Throne??
Since she's allowed her daughter princess Alexandra to be bapitized as Protestant I think that a religious conversion for her would not be so far out of reach as some would think.

I wonder how often they update it, what with all the births and deaths that must occur in a group of families that size. Imagine waking up in the morning and not knowing if you're 956th in line to the throne or 961st or even - happy day! - 949th!

Hasn't been updated since 2001. Which, to me, makes sense considering the amount of people.

Can you imagine how much it has changed in 4 years?

Seeing this list reminds of the movie "King Ralph" with John Goodman. He played an American who became King when the whole line was wiped out. Kind of cheesy but it had it's funny parts.

My sister watched it, and was horrified at the lack of research that had gone into it. She doesn't follow royalty, but, as she said, even she's aware that there would have to be an epidemic before a situation like that arose.

I know..

It drives me crazy when a picture is made in the U.S. featuring a king or queen and they address them as your royal highness instead of your majesty..

It really is a huge list! I didn't know that there were people who keep themselves busy with such lists! Interesting. And almost impossible to do! :)

What a huge list! All of whom (Except the first two in line to the throne) have no chance of getting the throne anyway so I guess it doesnt matter what ranking they are. Imagine Ernst August and Caroline as King and Queen of England!

I have no doubt Caroline would make a very good queen..or even as the head of Monaco's government.

But Ernst August as King......hmmm...I have reservations about that...

But it is funny how some on the list take their place on there very seriously.....especially those 8,000th in line.....:)

Did you see the movie Johnny English? There are worse things than King Ernst August, apparently....

LOL!!

I have...good one Elspeth! You are right on that....

I know this is off topic for a moment, but has anyone heard any news on that new movie by Stephen Frears about the Queen?
