"In a nutshell, the term mediatized applies to former states within the Holy Roman Empire who came under suzerians after the Napoleanic wars. The rulers of the mediatized states no longer under the 'immediate' authority' of the Emperor, and now owed allegiance to a suzerian. In Greece, the RF was exiled and the monarchy was subsequently abolished. Chances of restoration are not likely."

Yes, you're correct that "mediatized" is the wrong term, Sean. You may, however, wish to notify Netty Liestra of this fact since the Greek Royal Family is listed as such on her official website, which is thought of quite highly even in royal circles.

And I was aware of all the history you listed, but thanks for the explanation anyway, lol.

You are free to disagree, although everything I've written (from mediatization to the the Greek history) is fact and verifiable.

Have a nice day.

Royal circles are aware of Netty's websites? Like RB Forums? Same Netty, right? Wow! I had no idea royal circles even consider websites beyond their official sites. Looks like Netty is in an esteemed circle of journalists! :)

I don't think its a major royal circle. Only like "minor" royals. But if Sean.~ is correct, and Netty's information is wrong, then perhaps even if some royals do look at her site, it's not that reliable information wise.

Yes, Netty's unnofficial royalty site (unofficial insofar as it isn't offiially endorsed by any royal house) is an excellent site. I've been visiting it on and off since it started back in the late 1990s. In any case, people are often confused when it comes to the term 'mediatized', and my clarification wasn't solely for you (someone here asked me about the term a while back too, and I wrote a lenghty explanation). With regards to Netty, I'm sure it was just an ovesight in her situation, and I'm sure she will correct it one of these days.

I'm not sure why you would write "lol". Although you may have been aware of the history, others may not have been. More specifically, my post wasn't solely for your benefit. The thread is titled What is the "Point of th GR Family". I stated that the Greek Monarchy had a troubled history and that Greece is doing well as a Republic. Rather than arguing by assertion, I felt that stating the historical facts to support my statement was important.

I saw that mentioned elsewhere; perhaps somebody should ask Netty about it?

In any case, Sean, what you don't seem to understand is that your explanation presents only one side. It IS, in fact, opinion. There are those - cuervo, for example - who lived that history differently and interpret it differently.

It's a matter of politics.

1. Ask Netty abbout what?

2. Actually, I supported my opinion (ie the monarchy in Greece had a troubled history) with facts. That being said, history is always subject to intepretation. Two people from divergent backgrounds will always interpret the same historical events differently. We all bring our 'baggage' (rather than "politics") to our interpretations. So there we agree.

TC.

I mentioned asking Netty to the other posters who raised issues, not you - but so far as I know, she understands that many royals have looked at her site and like it though nobody has given any official sign of approval. I was, in fact, quoting her site. Your post made me realize that the term is incorrect.

Hey, Sean, FWIW, I personally agree with your INTERPRETATION of the facts. I'm simply pointing out that many others whose families prospered under the royal family would disagree.

So we have the former King and Queen of Greece, the Crown Prince and Princess etc but when will the titles stop? will they stop? I dont think they should because although they are not ruling anymore, the are still royal. So when the King eventually dies, does Pavlos take the title of King or not?

No, because he's not a king.

I don't understand why everybody picks only on this royal family; they're certainly not the only royals who no longer rule. They're hardly unique.

I don't think that Pavlos will refer to himself as King upon his father's death. King Constantine is addressed as such because he was the King of Greece at the time of the Greek monarchy's fall and went into exile as such. He actually was the reigning King of Greece at one time, whereas Pavlos will most likely not be. What will most likely happen with this family as times goes by, IMO, is that most of them will be referred to as Princes and Princesses and the title of Crown Prince itself will also no longer be used. The heir apparent will most likely be referred to as "the man who be King if Greece still had a monarchy."

People do pick on this family a lot more than other RF's because they get more media attention and are more visible and recognizable, than other member of non-reigning royal families. I think that what also needs to be kept in mind is that they do still hold titles of "Prince or Princess of Denmark" and Denmark is still a functioning monarchy.

That's certainly true; they do get more publicity.

By the way, the "of Denmark" is not accurate, at least not according to Sean

I think that one could attribute to HRH Crown Princess Pavlos for alot of the publicity of the family.

The Greek Royals facinate me.

It was not my intention or anyone elses intention to only pick on this family, it is the only real non ruling family i am familiar with, probably becuase im all the way In Australia and we dont get much news about royalty. And since there is a forum called "The Greek Royal Family" that is how i became familiar with it, through research on this board.
No evil intentions- i assure you

Actually, that's not what I said, and you know that. I wrote that it is a "courtesy title", but that they are not, however, members of Danish royalty.
(which is what you were asserting). And it isn't according to me. Rather, it is according to the Danes themselves.

Y'know, Sean, I've gotten to the point where I really don't CARE what you wrote.

You are nasty, unpleasant, and rude. You can't seem to express your opinions without resorting to boorish behavior.

Pardon me, but evidently you do care, or else you wouldn't have (incorrectly) quoted me in your previous post. Personally, I think that you have a problem with being corrected & are more than will blame others for your misinformation (e.g. like Netty's board), and have thus now resorted to name calling.

In any case, since you brought it up, those are my sentiments about you & the way you express yourself by assertion without facts. Frankly, if correcting ones incorrrect information, questioning their penchant for arguing by assertion, and pointing out that they have misrepresnted my comments make me those things in your opinion, then so be it.
