That can not be so as GDss Josephine Charlotte was the one who supported her son. The problems between her and Maria Teresa only came after the marriage, not before. It was Grand Duchess Charlotte who was against the match, but softened after the birth of prince Guillaume.

It can't be Sophia, she allowed the marriage of Felipe.

i should not think so, as prince william is descended from charles II (and his brother james II) via natural children, whom had no legal right or claim to the throne.

well done, good lad, 100 % marks.
yes, the disparity in height between the diminutive king and his statuesques queen made them the butt of many ill natured jokes, one of which was the long and the short......

a gold star for you mafan !!!

Thanks Jonny!
I have one:
I was asked to be King, I've reigned for some years, but I've never been a Sovereign; I married a woman, but I've never had a wife. Who was I???

this is tough riddle to crack
mafan, what do you mean by i never had a wife, when you have mentioned he married, do you mean that he had no wife living whilst he reigned, ie the wife had died beforehand. as he is not sovereign is he a regent for some child monarch or some person not able to reign via illness.

i hazard a guess at prince luipold of bavaria, but i have a feeling i am incorrect as i do not recall him being asked to be king, i will have to check that.

perhaps i looking too deep into this riddle. more clues please mafan my good mate

yes goody two shoes , you are correct in the tsar of bulgaria, i suppose that was too easy !!

jonny
