I keep reading how Nicholas' is more popular with the Romanian people than ever. What if this whole thing is some sort of publicity stunt to make the people feel they need Nicholas as a Prince after all and increase support for the monarchy to be returned.

The Succession is really a problem now.

According to wiki in 2009 the head of the family said he *wasn't* interested in the Romanian throne...

But let's not forget that it's not that K.Mihai ended the line of succession completely, his oldest daughter is next in line, so a lot of things could happen in the next, what, 30 something years...

The Line of Succession proposed in 2007 by King Michael of Romania is not only against the Romanian Constitution of 1923 (that the King swore to respect) but changes all the time. Princess Sofia had been stripped of her titles and than appeared on the Line with her titles again. Princess Irina lost her place without a public statement. Michael Kreuger and Angelica Kreuger lost their places in the Line with no explanation and no statement. The last chapter of this saga was about young Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth Mills stripped of his place in the Succession in absence but this time the reaction of many royalists and of the public opinion was quite strong against the decision. Nobody knows how this Line will be in the future but this Family risks to loose credibility and public support. A very sad end for a great Family.

The Hohenzollerns will hardly say anything about Succession during King Michael's life.

They are wise enough and busy with their lots of business activities. The Fürst manages the Hofkammer which mainly consists of the Unternehmungsgruppe Fürst von Hohenzollern. With the revenues he and his family make a living and keep the impressive Schloss Sigmaringen and its enormous domains in proper order.

The Fürst also owns:
Zollern GmbH (since 1708) - a firm in machines, steel, ironworks with 2.800 personnel
EZS (Elektrozentrale Sigmaringen, more than 100 years) - the own electrity company for the castle, the domains and the city of Sigmaringen with 30 personnel
Baumarkt Sigmaringen (since 1989) - DIY, wholesale and retail, hardware
Baumarkt Bad Saulgau (since 1989) - DIY, wholesale and retail, hardware
PvH Capital (since 2005) - the Fürst has bought a series of start-ups in bio-technologies, energy and sustainable renewal
Burg Hohenzollern (since 1061) - the Castle, the domains, the historic and art collections, the archives, the valuables
CoSi Elektronik - IT-systems for medical doctors, digital röntgen for dentists, security and surveillance IT
Prinz von Hohenzollern - the vineyards with wines, sekt and liquors produced from the own grapes
Forstbetrieb Hohenzollern - 20.000 hectare of the domains dedicated to forestry
Jagdbetrieb Hohenzollern - the hunting department of the Fürstliche Household
Wildpark Josefslust - the own wild park
Baumschule des Forstbetrieb Hohenzollern - teaching and educating (new) foresters but also producing 200.000 to 300.000 new trees every year for the own Forstbetrieb
Etc.

Some fellow posters have snubbed "those Germans" in the original line of succession and went for Nicholas in the invented line of succession. Why, that is unclear. His good looks? His friendly nature? The actual Heir according the original line of succession and his son however are busy with their activities and prove -in my view- far more that they can be a force with fresh ideas to renew and renergize Romania with good and creative ideas, than the directionless Romanian bunch.

Many Romanian royalists speak about Prince Karl and his son these days and I believe the Hohenzollerns represents the only solution now.

Romanian court rules Prince Paul member of Royal House of Romania
Paul has serious financial and legal issues. He has several judgments against him (worth about 6 million Euros) as well as other legal issues at this time. Bankruptcy could be in his future

Let's hope the Romanian royalists will ask officially Prince Karl to prepare himself for the Succession. He could change his mind about the Romanian Succession if he sees he has clear support from the people.

According the very document on which the whole existence of Michael as King is based, the Hohenzollerns are his successors by lack of direct male descent in his own House.

I feel a bit sorry for you Cory. I've noticed how you after an initial period of doubt started warming up to Nicolae and in the end you seemed to have a lot of hope for the future and even being fond of the prince.

Then the House of Romania ends somewhere and will fade away in history. The House of Hohenzollern will continue to manage their interests and upheld their status like they already do. I think the Germans will shrug their shoulders and are the sort of folks who can analyse a situation properly.

So to see the Hohenzollerns seem to respect the House Laws better. The successors all come from dynastic marriages:

Wilhelm Prinz von Hohenzollern
x Maria Theresia Princesse de Bourbon-Deux Siciles
= Friedrich

Friedrich Prinz von Hohenzollern
x Margarete Prinzessin von Sachsen
= Friedrich Wilhelm

Friedrich Wilhelm Prinz von Hohenzollern
x Margarita Prinzessin zu Leiningen
= Karl Friedrich

Karl Friedrich Prinz von Hohenzollern (the current Chef)
x Alexandra Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg
= Alexander

Alexander Prinz von Hohenzollern (the future Chef)

I wonder about the status of Princess Sofia (the fourth daughter of King Michael). In an old article on Rootsweb the author Dan Willis wrote about Princess Sofia's spouse Alan Biarneix (styling himself as Biarneix de Laufenbourg):

Alain Biarneix appeared on the scene several years ago claiming to be Michel de Habsbourg and claimed to be a member of a junior line of the Austian Imperial family. Archduke Otto's attorney's contacted him and advised him to stop spreading the lie as it was apparent that he was not a family member.

He then started saying he was an illegitimate Habsburg. This still did not hold up and he never specifically stated which Habsburg was his father.

He was finally sued on grounds of false impersonation and was forced to give up the Habsbourg name as he was clearly no relation to them. It was then that he chose the name "de Laufenborg" which still has Habsburg connections from the 14th/15th centuries.

He sucessfully wooed and married Princess Sofia of Roumania against her family's approval. In fact her father took the extra-ordinary step of stripping her of her title for marrying the faker.

If Biarneix's current wife is also a fraud, they deserve each other. But I know nothing about her one way or the other.

Dan Willis
author, House of Habsburg




Apparently Sofia is back in line of succession again, back a Princess of Romania again? All this while she is still married to the man which was seemed unsuitable? Really... what a mess King Michael has made of his House. The chances were there for a semi-formal status of the former royal family but all this has been flushed through the loo. No, as Chef de la Maison, King Michael's record has been poor, very poor.

I thought they were divorced in 2002? I think I read somewhere on these forums that she got reinstated after that?
