You are quite on the mark. This is all theatre. There are no brides lining up for Georgi and he seems disinterested in staking his own claim. So if his mother, who, despite what others here say, seems to control the issue. She must make the pick and the bargain. As for restoration, I hope they keep their "day jobs".

Maybe Maria is lining them up for him? Or some families are lining their daughters up. He is still a Prussian Prince.

Hmm the sister of Prince Nicolae of Romania would be a good choice, she's the daughter of a princess, Granddaughter of a king, and sister of the future head of the house, and they both have similar physical characteristics, and she is orthodox, or we can assume she is.

Why not a Romanov from a rival branch? That would unify the Romanovs and would in the end hopefully end the bickering.

You may well be correct but there is no factual evidence on which to base this assertion.
None of us are privy to Georgi's private life, his feelings or personal relationships, and any royal-watcher of worth should know not to base such judgements on relatively infrequent public appearances and photo-ops.
Personal speculation or supposition should be qualified as such and not stated as fact.

Exactly. And if you mean he seems disinterested in staking his own claim to the throne:

"If the day comes when I am called to this service, I will not turn away from it. But at present, I, following the example of all the heads of our House in exile—my great-grandfather, my grandfather, and my mother—strive to live according to the maxim: “Do your duty now, and let the future take care of itself.” It would be senseless to sit and dream: “What will I do if I ascend the throne.” I strive to be useful to my homeland in the position that I hold now, to help my mother to fulfill her duties, and to accumulate professional experience and knowledge that will be useful under any circumstances I may find myself in the future."

3 February 2010, Grand Duke George Mikhailovich

I have to admire that in him and I think taht is what will make him a good man for a husband. He wants to live life, he will welcome a position, but he will in the meantime work at his job and live life.

I wonder if even if he weren't being promoted as a Grand Duke, if as a Prince of Prussia he might like to end up marrying a princess. A lot of these dethroned royalties seem to marry fellow royals moreso than the ones who are reigning.

And many don't. They work and they, also, meet people. Of course, many of them are placed together at events, family events and so they know each other. They have no "agenda". It is just a marriage, with no outside expectations. It is not some weird alliance, in case of this or that. Just a marriage.

Although born a commoner,if Elisabet Karina,grand-daugher of King Michail of Romania was also proclaimed HRH and Princess of Romania by a decree accepted by a Parliament-like her brother Nicholas,what do you think how this union would be treated?

I think this is a healthy view; get a job and enjoy life, instead of sitting around awaiting a throne that might not come his way. His mother is certainly doing the right thing and he seems remarkably healthy and well adjusted. He'll welcome it, but he won't pursue or push for it.

Are you sure? There's nothing on the Royal Family website that I can see to suggest this.

I thought only his grandson Nicholas had been raised to royal status.

Yes, only Nicholas has been created Prince of Romania; King Michael's other grandchildren don't have any title.
I believe that Marc in his post was wondering if Elisabeth Karina would be considered an equal bride for Geand Duke Georgi, in the case she was also created Princess of Romania and Royal Highness.

I think it would be refreshing if an Eastern European princess were to marry an heir.

Yes, my error, I missed the "if". Apologies Marc!

I think that would be a problem for Maria because Elizabeth is a commoner, not born royal. In order for Georgi to continue the traditions of the Imperial House and uphold his branch's claim, his marriage cannot have any question of whether it was equal under the Pauline Laws.

But, of course, Michael of Romania is free to issue whatever decree he wishes with regard to the styles and titles of his descendants. If he wished to elevate any or all of his commoner grandchildren to royal rank, that is his perogative as Head of the Romanian Royal House and a former King.
