Handsome Princes without countries
 
Anyone know how many Royal Princes there are in Europe who are not part of the main Royal families ? X

LadyK 03-11-2007 10:19 AM

Well, I'm not 100% sure what you are asking, but here's my answer:

There are the princes of Greece (Crown Prince Pavlos-married, and Prince Nikolaos and Prince [something else] who are not married0
the Princes of Serbia (Hereditary Prince Peter, Prince Alexander, and Prince Philip.
There is also Prince Emanneul Filiberto of Savoy.

...AND... Waldeck, Schaumburg-Lippe, Wettin, Reuss, Hesse, Baden, Anhalt, Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, Wied, Bentheim and Steinfurt, Salm-Salm, and so on, and so forth, etc....
:wacko:

I found a list online once that listed the first 1,000 people in the Order of Succession to the British throne. Of course, it wound its way through to members of the other monarchies of Europe, one by one. Intermixed with the big names and houses which are most familiar were all these princes and families and places I'd never even heard of. It really impressed upon me how many princely titles are out there.

My appreciation goes to Avalon for supplying the requested link! :flowers:

The likelyhood of someone who is, for example, 654th in the line of succession ever finding themselves sitting on the throne is probably about as statistically likely as The Queen growing a second head. (That would bring new meaning to the Royal "We", now wouldn't it?)

Nevertheless, it is a testament to how fascinating the topic is to the general people as well as to academia.

The first fellow monarch to appear on the list is HM King Harald V, who is 60th in the line of succession to rule Britian. Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands also appear, though HM Queen Beatrix doesn't figure in till number 781. (Note it is only the Protestant monarchies that appear. Catholics cannot succeed in Great Britain and as such are barred from the list.)

And in between the above big names are the names of less well-known and non-ruling families and titles. As to whether or not these more obscure princes are handsome?... well, I'll leave it to those who have the time to hunt down photos of them all.

(Incidentally,
HRH Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark appears on the list at number 231.)

Vanesa 03-31-2007 09:00 PM

Yes, thank you. The pictures are really interesting...

And after reading about all the Princes (handsome or not) without crown, nor throne, we can't avoid to think how many Monarchies there were only some years ago, and how they were put to rest.

Vanesa.

Who is the Most Handsome Prince?
 
I don't know if I can start this, but I thought I'd do a thread to see who do you think is the most handsome (good-looking, sexy, and attractive) prince.

ladybelline 07-22-2010 05:08 PM

For me they are :

-Crown Prince Haakon of Norway
-The Prince of Asturias
-Prince Carl Philip of Sweden

:biggrin:

fergalicious 07-22-2010 05:09 PM

It´s easy to pick the most handsome: Felipe, Prince of Asturias

The others I had to think a little:
2. Haakon, Crown prince of Norway
3. Carl Philip, Prince of Sweden
