Lenie, it's hard to find direct descendants of a medieval royal . See Marc's post ? I was right in a way.

Beginning with the XIVth century even the illegitimate sons could pretend the trone in Vallachia and Moldavia because they were considered "princely bone".

There were actually three different bloodlines from Dracula to Countess Claudine through three of her four grandparents. You are only showing one of them.

Countess Claudine was a beautiful woman and Duke Alexander of Württemberg loved her very much. Her tragic death at age 29 (the most commonly told story is that she was trampled by a team of horses at an exhibition) sent him into a lifetime of mourning and sadness.

Due to the German laws relating to the line of succession, she was viewed as being of non-Royal rank and the marriage was declared morganatic. She was denied the title of Duchess. A morganatic marriage is different than an illegitimate relationship. The children are considered legitimate on other counts and the prohibition of bigamy applies

Countess Claudine is ethnically considered pure Transylvanian. Since she is four generations from QEII that makes QEII 1/2^4 or 1/16 Transylvanian. While not a dominant part of the ethnic makeup of QEII it is larger percentage than her Irish, Scottish, French, Dutch, Danish, Belgian, Swedish, or Bohemian ancestry.

The countess was a hungarian aristocrat from Transylvania, a province with romanian majority even during that period.

Too many people ignore the fact he was the Sovereign Prince of Wallachia.

Transylvania has always had a Romanian majority.

The Romanians and the ethnic minorities of Transylvania represent though a specific culture typical to Central Europe.

Being "Transylvanian" is not an ethnic designation. Many different ethnic groups considers Transylvania their home and none of them carries that name.

My point is that there isn't a one Transylvanian ethnicity. There are Romanian, Szcekely, Hungarian, Saxon, Roma, Jewish etc. Transylvanians. Different peoples, languages and religions that all inhabit the same land without one calling themselves Transylvanias separating them from their main ethnic and historical roots.
