I'm sure Princess Alix would keep her succession rights if she marries the Count. I think her family would be thrilled.

Thank you for answering CM. Do the Braganza-Orléans have House laws regarding equal marriages or is it judged from case to case? I tried to look it up but couldn't find anything.

For a Brazilian dynast to marry and keep his/her succession rights, the marriage must be consented by the Head of the Imperial House, who can stipulate some conditions in order to approve the union.

Normally, only marriages equal marriages are accepted (a Prince of Brazil must marry a Princess, or an equivalent of "Princess", such as "Archduchess").

But, in 1948, Princess Pia Maria of Brazil (1913-2000) married a French aristocrat, Count René de Nicola˙ (1910-1954), and her brother, Prince Pedro Henrique (1909-1981), then Head of the Imperial House, approved the marriage and she kept her succession rights.

So there's a precedent for Princess Alix's case (who, in theory, is not a member of the Brazilian Imperial Family, but a member of the Princely House of Ligne who can inherit the defunct Brazilian Throne).

From his descent from a Countess of Bourbon-Busset, the Count has connections to the Bourbon Parma family.

More precisely Guillaume's great-grandmother, Gabrielle de Bourbon-Busset (the mother of Guillaume's paternal grandmother), was a sister of Madeleine de Bourbon-Bussed, wife of Duke Xavier of Parma and mother of the late Duke Carlos Hugo.

branche de Ham, Maison de Ligne

Godd Morning (it's 7.45 am here) I've been living and working in Thailand since 2003 and would like to convey a warm hello from the Land of Smiles to all of you. I found this interesting page about the House de Ligne. I found another webpage showing a coat of arms where it says in French branche de Ham de la maison de Ligne. Does any one have any information about the de Ham (de Ligne) family (names, dates)? I'm attaching a file I found on Wikipedia. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing this, I was unaware of it. That's an amazing thing to do, and it's nice to hear that they are still in touch with some of the Jewish children that they saved.

Even more so, when you realize beyond the 300 they housed, another 2700 Jewish children passed through them. They worked with the Red Cross to help hide Jewish children among Catholic families all over Belgium. How many countless children got to grow old and have children and grandchildren because of what Eugene, his wife and those they worked with, did. Among some of the royals who risked their lives and all they had, to use their position to help others.

Amazing this reunion was worked out. Sad the couple are not alive but for their grandchildren and descendants to meet them. And of course Yolande, the only of their 4 children still alive. A righteous among nations is an incredible honor, they can be proud they had 2 in their family. What an impressive legacy of humanity to leave.
