The Real Names Of The Royal Families
 
I know the Swedish royal family´s name is Bernadotte, but what about all the other ones? Does anyone know?

Robbert 11-04-2003 11:50 AM

In The Netherlands it's: Van Oranje Nassau (and maybe Von Amsberg to because that's the name of late prince Claus)

For the english royal family, its Windsor.

You're right. Eloise, daughter of Laurentien and Constatijn, haves the name 'von Amsberg'.

For the Spanish royals, it's Borbon.

And I believe the Greek royals use "Glucksberg" when absolutely required to have a last name.

Lena 11-04-2003 01:55 PM

Sweden:Bernadotte
Norway: Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg
Danmark: Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg
GB: Windsor
Netherlands: Oranien-Nassau or oranje-Nassau
Belgium: Sachsen-Coburg
Spain: Bourbon
Luxemburg: Nassau
Monaco:Grimaldi

But I don´t know the name of Liechtenstein-family.

Helena 11-04-2003 03:14 PM

the last name of the princely family is just 'von und zu Liechtenstein'

Norway: Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg
Danmark: Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg

The RF's of Denmark and Norway might both originate from here, but in public today, I can not see members of these families having the same last name ???

Lena 11-04-2003 03:33 PM

It´s clear, that they have the same name! After the seperation from Sweden (in 1905), Norway also got an own Royal house (again), and so prince Carl of Danmark (known as king Haakon VII) became king. He was a brother of king Christian X of Danmark. And that´s the reason why they have the same name!

Morocco : el Alaoui
Jordan : something like "al hashem"

As a follow up to my last post- What I posted were the"Family" names as opposed to their "House" names. There is a difference. They are not the same in many cases.

Thank you for your post, Tommix.


I agree, Lena both Royal Houses (of Denmark and Norway) come from the same "House", but what I failed to note in my post, was that it was my assumption that the surnames in today's passports would surely be different names ?

Prussia- Hohenzollern

Hanover- Guelf

Roumania- Hohenzollern

Actually, I think Roumania is: Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen because it was my understanding that this south branch of the family is Roman Catholic, and the Rumanians wanted a Catholic as king (while the Prussian side of Hohenzollern is Lutheran).

I wonder about Hanover, that there is no reference to "Welfen" ?

hrhcp 11-06-2003 12:59 PM

Actually Hannover is "von Hannover"

:flower: Actually you are wrong..........The FAMILY name IS as I stated in my previous post.
Surley Burkes Peerage, [my source], is superior and far more authoritative than the website you mention.
As for your comment about the Roumanian Royal family's name in your other post, you are correct that Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen is the House name, but as we were asked for the family names, Hohenzollern is correct. :flower:

I don't think I ever knew the Belgian royals last name before. Interesting TOMMIX, thanks!

Greece-          Oldenburg
Where does Glucksenberg come in? I read that most often, though Oldenburg is part of a longer name.

:heart: Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg is the HOUSE name of both Denmark&#39;s and Greece&#39;s Royals. Their FAMILY name is Oldenburg.
As I noted in several previous postings the HOUSE name and the FAMILY names are not always the same.
The poster who began this thread was asking for the FAMILY names not the House names. :flower:
