I've read both here and elsewhere that Maria is putting her price tag at $10B in property and cash in order to be rightfully compensated and restored. I thought that was pretty bold, considering that her "claim" is by no means rock solid, and the increasing disparity between the rich and not rich in Russia brings back memories of, say, 1918.

Really? I doubt Maria would be so silly as to demand $10bn from the Russian government though I am surprised that she hasn't followed the example of quite a few exiled heads of royal houses and taken a case to the European Court of Human Rights to get property back. Indeed, when she's given interviews she always makes a point of saying that she doesn't want any financial compensation.

A new interview with Her Imperial Highness.

"Speaking about the restoration of the monarchy, the conviction of Her Imperial Highness is that it's too early. "If the monarchical state once again in the future will demand of our people, I, my son or our legitimate heirs to fulfill our duty. We are well aware of the realities of today and strive to be useful in their country no matter what her form of government "- she said in the conclusion of the interview"

I didn't know that. Well, still, she's right that a restoration is too early.

I think this was already posted. Maria has such a dutiful son.

It was a news concerning the same event but it was another article written in French.

The other members of the Imperial Family of Romanovs made some time ago an official declaration that "Great Duchess Maria Vladimirovna has no right to be the heir to the imperial throne,as well as her self-proclaimed ancestors and descendants",so they rejected the idea of her right to call herself the legitimate successor,she is considered by them to be one of the many pretenders and her actual role is not justified in their eyes.

I dunno; what is wrong with Rostislav being Tsar?

Secondly, I woner what Maria has been up to. Do you think she is scouting candidates for her son?

Yes, the Romanoff Family Assoc takes the view that the throne is vacant and that no one should put themselves forward as Tsar or Pretender. They say that it would be up to the Russian people to decide if a monarchy should be restored and who that monarch should be, much the same was as the first Romanoff came to the throne. Seems like a pretty logical way of thinking.

That is their position on the matter, which is not accepted by everyone. The Pauline Laws are very clear they are not dynasts, but mere morganatic descendants with no rights whatsoever.

While it's true Maria's mother may not have been strictly royalty, her father was the undisputed Head of the Imperial House and ruled she was. That was the end of that and Maria is the rightful heir.

No one among the other Romanovs are not so presumptuous as to suggest that they automatically have the right and Cyril declared himself head right over the still warm body of the Dowager Empress. The Romanovs didn't live in anticipation that there would be a full restoration and that Communism would collapse as soon as it did. You really don't think that Maria has also any right to immediately suggest, simply by decree that the Romanvos are not Romanovs? They are Romanovs and have the lineage and have the ancestry and she has no right to disinherit them solely ebcause they disagree with the idea that she is head of the family and de jure Empress. They are Romanovs and that's that.

Maria knows she is not going to be crowned Empress in her lifetime. She's not a stupid woman. Her point is she is the Head of the Imperial House and her relatives are not dynasts due to unequal marriages.

She has never stated they are not Romanovs, only that they have no rights to the throne under the Pauline Laws. But she has acknowledged they are part of the extended family.

As Head of the House, she can "exile" who she likes. If she wanted to make someone a Grand Duke or strip someone of their Russian Imperial honours, she could.

LOL. Exile, really? Nearly 100 years after the revolution the Romanoffs are all exiles, but in reality they are French, German, Spanish, Italian, American etc. 100 years is a bit long to consider youorself to be an exile, especially since none of them were born in Russia or turfed out of the country by revolution.
Maria's right to do anything really depends on people acknowledging her right to do so. If one doesnt acknowledge her right or her presumed position as head of house than no matter what she says it really has no effect. Her grandfather and fathers claims to head the family had issues and Marias certainly does as well. She has no legal rights to do anything. There is no Russian throne and no Imperial powers.

What I meant was, Maria decides who is a member of the Imperial Family and who isn't. Just as King Constantine, Crown Prince Alexander etc etc can.

Oh I understood that, but it only works if people acknowledge her right to do so which many people do not......and quite frankly it seems ridiculous after all this time for her to even try to do so.

Surely that's the same for any regime? It only has power/effect if people give it their loyalty.
