i understand but a non-legitimate person who claims what he or she is not in reality is dangerous and should not be accepted in any way :)

dangerous for the country and for the history as well :)

Maria is the legitimate senior male-line descendant of Alexander II and her claim is valid in terms of being Head of the Imperial House. Whether she has a right to the throne under the Pauline Laws is entirely another matter.

There are no surviving dynasts under the Laws today.

This is all nonsense. Georgi's girlfriend seems to be a lovely young lady. There is no throne. Not for 90 some odd years. And people are debating whether she is good enough? If she makes him happy, that is all that counts.

laws of succession :)

if the russian law said that a person born into an unequal marriage loses his or her status and cannot be named as successor than it is very clear that russian royalty is extinct.

The Fundamental Laws of the Empire are dead and there is no longer a monarchy in Russia. Anyone could be chosen in the event of a restoration, so the arguments about status among the surviving descendants are really moot at this point.

Georgi can and should be able to marry whomever he wishes without worrying about whether his future wife is royal or not.

Thing is, that Maria has staked her claims on those rules and used those rules to discredit anyone else from staking a claim to 'her' throne. They mean something to Maria and they are used by Georgi. So realistically, they mean something substantial.

The clowns are in town when this is discussed. A nice young man with a useless title, son of an overbearing mother, with no concept of his real future and wanting happiness for him. He is between a rock and a hard place, so to speak. He should marry whom he wants and will be happy with. Nobody is rushing the gate for this marriage, as there is no possibility he will be anything more than what he does, today. He seems kind and nice, he should marry for love and be happy.
Thing is, that Georgi is going along with this, promoting himself as future Head of the House of Romanov.

Lady Gabriella Windsor is a ravishingly beautiful woman, who could have anyone she desired, so i doubt she'd be interested in the [how can i put this] rather tubby 'Grand Duke'..
Also why would she want 'the mother-in-law from Hell ?

Any evidence that The Grande Duchess would be "the mother-in-law from Hell"?

I'm asking because, nowadays, it has become a lot easier to accuse without any proof.

Well, then Princess Pushie also could sound like mother-in-law from hell and she could be sarcastic.

But I don't think Georgi and Gabriella will be together.

Yes, but how long are Nicholas and Dimitri Romanov going to live versus Maria and Georgi? Once they pass on, the rivalry is over.

She can change the Laws anytime she wants to. And I have no doubt she will do so when the time is right.

I, believe, the time has long passed. Georgi seems like the nicest of young men, truly. He deserves the best wife, whomever. Maria is a fossil. As are the Romanovs. He should live life in his way for happiness.

There are 11 people in the line of succession to Nicholas' claim, starting with Dimitri. The youngest person was born just last year.

It is important to note that pretty much the Romanov family as a whole supports this claim, while only Maria and Georgi support gets.

Furthermore, if Georgi marries a non-dynast then it gives the guy next in the line of succession to this claim - Andreas, Prince of Leiningen - the ability to claim the position ahead of Georgi's hypothetical sons. Maria may change the rules to allow Georgi to enter into such a marriage, but if they're not recognized by the next guy in the line of succession he doesn't have to pay attention to that change. It's not as though she's paying attention to any attempted changes that those in the other line have claimed as allowable.

Wait, why you need to offend Grand Duchess Maria calling her a fossil? And you not only offended her, but the entire House of Romanov. Why?

Would you like to be called a fossil? Would you like to see your family being offended in such a stupid and ridiculous way?

Sometimes, I wonder where some people put their good manners (if they have any) before log on this forums.

Countess believes that people who make any claim to a non-ruling throne is stuck in the past and needs to move on. This type of statement is made from her rather regularly, ignoring the fact that to many people within at least some of the states/regions in question, a restoration is a desirable, albeit unlikely, event. They are all "fossils" because they haven't evolve with the times and embraced democracy, even though some of the most democratic countries in the world continue to have monarchies, and many of the places with continued monarchist movements are ones that have serious problems within their current form of government.

Are you referring to the son of Rostislav Jr who was born to unwed parents? Pray tell how that little boy is in the line of succession to anything.
