Queensland Health's alleged $16m scammer Joel Morehu-Barlow had everyone fooled he was Tahitian royalty | Courier Mail
He convinced everyone he was a Tahitian royal, but Joel Morehu-Barlow was just a Kiwi with a questionable past who allegedly funded his lavish lifestyle by plundering millions meant for charities.

Anyone with half a brain would have been able uncover the lies that Joel told. The Kaahui Ariki or close family members of the Maori King are few in number. If you're not one of his siblings or their children then you are not part of the establishment. There is enough information on the web to find this out. The Tahitian part would be more difficult to uncover. His name alone spells out that he isn't part of the Maori King's family. What a silly silly man.

Self-proclaimed Sultan of Sulu (Malaysia)

‘Sultan’ who’s an embarrassment to Putrajaya | Free Malaysia Today
Mohd Akjan is proving to be more of an ignoramus than a legitimate claimant to the Sulu throne, displaying little knowledge about the Malay sultanates.
Mohd Akjan Ali Muhammad, who won 15 minutes of fame by crowning himself as the 33rd Sultan of Sulu on Feb 2, 2011 is an embarrassment for Putrajaya that isn’t going away, anywhere, anytime soon. For one, he’s yet to be brought to Court on charges of having dual citizenship and being allegedly linked to the infamous Projek IC or Projek Mahathir. There are numerous police reports against him but the investigation file opened on him is reportedly in Bukit Aman and not in Sabah.
[...]
For a man who claims to be Sultan, Akjan is appallingly ignorant of the origin of Muslim sultanates.He’s equally ignorant of the fact that sultanates in the islands of Southeast Asia were “Kerajaan Sungei” (riverine kingdoms) and not territorial in the western sense.

These kind of people have some serious mental problems and literally should be locked up in the closest looney bin.
Shouldn't you have done the research BEFORE marrying him ? I know I would have......

On that question about Cody Franchetti, he claims to be a Baron but I just saw he is better known for his arrogant remarks and in-your-face prejudice against other people that are not of his Elite. Word to the wise, those who really have a past and come from a provileged background normally do not brag about it. Much less use it to make others insignificant. Those are the signs of people with low self esteem who claim to be more than what their actual background is.

I found this notable quotes from this clown on this article:
Do not get near Cody Franchetti
January 25, 2006
and here are some of those gems from him:

• "I am an elitist. I believe in an elite, I believe that people want an elite ... because there s always been one, whether it be an oligarchy or a dictatorship."
• On Lisa Loeb: "She is very how should I put it? petit bourgeois."
• On pursuing his own reality show: "Yes, absolutely, [it s] cheap, trashy I m well aware of that. But we live in the age of Paris Hilton, my dear, so what am I going to do a show where I discuss Flaubert with people that call in? No, I don t think so."

As someone who did live in a dictatorship (Franco's) the remarks of this self proclaimed Baron are quite offensive and moronic. again, typical of a no-body celebrity trying to flash comments for pure shock value.

Now, I could not find any genealogy on that so-called Baron Cody Franchetti but there are Counts Franchetti, one of the members was married to actor Henry Fonda (Jane and Peter Fonda's dad): Countess Afdera Franchetti
But there is nothing to explain the title being downgraded from Count to Baron that can also give us a hint on who is this guy using that title. Maybe we have to realize that the so called aristocratic guests in that reality show are nothing but peripheral people as close to actual history making royalty as the planet Pluto is close to us. So, lesson learned here, don't believe everything you see on TV!
My problem with any of this is attributing him at all on the ROYAL Forums, he definitely not Royal, and probably not even Noble. So again I ask why discuss this loser on a forum about Royalty ?

Cody Franchetti is not titled but his father is titled that still makes him an imposter being he is claiming to something he is not even though he does come from a noble background.

A FINANCIAL watchdog will be called in to probe Queensland Health's books in a bid to head off another fake Tahitian prince-style fraud disaster.

Heirs to the Romanov Family

Romanov Russian Prince Carlo Alberto (1993-Italy) from September he moved to London to attend one of the most prestigious Universities of Architecture in the world ... For His Imperial Highness is going to be a year full of parties, gala and fun ... but we hope he won't forget the study.

Is his name Carlo Alberto Romanov? Must be or else he is a relation through his mother, cause I've never heard of any of the extended members being from Italy.

There is no "Prince Carlo Alberto Romanov" among the immediate or extended members of the Romanov family.
If such a person exists (which I strongly doubt), it is through a female line and he is most certainly not entitled to the title of a Prince.

Agreed. Who ever he is he is definitely not an Imperial Highnesss.

Dear All,
One day I read a book about the Romanovs and their descendants, you should know that some members moved to France, England and some in Italy.
In Italy there is a line that carries the name of the Romanovs obtained through marriage with a member of the same family, in addition to this there is another branch, the one of the Consolo-Romanov, in this branch there is the italian actress Nicoletta Romanoff .
Doing some other research I found a relationship between the two Italian branches, and I discovered that they both have relatives in common, in fact Nicoletta Romanov is second cousin of Prince Charles Albert Romanov, he's probably not an Imperial Highness but the Princely title is true.

Precisely the surname derives from his grandmother, she was a Romanov. Romanov is not the only surname that he owned but it's the one that he mostly use, right now I don't know about him or about the other surname but I found out that also his grandfather is an italian Prince, so he merried this Romanov lady and they joined the two surnames, so the surname is Romanov and the title is a Princely one.

I hope to be helpful.

There is a "Carlo Alberto Maccanovic Romanov" on Facebook. The page says he lives in London, he is from Motta di Livenza, Italy, and that his religious views are of the Catholic Church. If he is a Romanov descendant, he must be from the VERY extended family.

The only members of the extended Romanov Family entitled to use a princely style are the descendants of the late Paul R. Ilyinsky, former Mayor of Palm Beach, Fla. and born HSH Prince Paul Romanovsky-Ilyinsky, son of HIH Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich and Audrey Emery. Prince Paul raised his children as Americans and they do not use a noble style or title.

The other dynasts who married unequally, but without permission from Grand Duke Cyril or Grand Duke Vladimir, retained their imperial rank as HH Prince of Russia, but could not pass this title or style to their morganatic wives or children. Their descendants are simply Mr. X Romanov or Miss X Romanov today.
