Among those Royals with a lower-case r, Friedrich Leopold (1883-1975) and Paula (1888-1967) of Stolberg-Stolberg needlessly lost five soldier sons over a nine-month period toward the end of WWII, during a time when the German war effort was already doomed:
* Franz, aged 22 in June 1944
* Johannes, aged 32, in early September 1944
* Otto, aged 29, nine days after Johannes
* Ferdinand, aged 30 in January 1945
* Friedrich, aged 31, in March 1945

1934 If King Albert I did not passed away in a mountainearing accident , he should be King during WW2 and his behaviour should be better than his without any experience Son.

1935 If Queen Astrid did not passed away in a car accident , no Lilian Baels and Leopold III should remain popular and should not have to abdicate .. Young Baudouin should not be king when he was only 2O years old..

The death of the French Royal family in the French revolution. But while a lot of that was only made possible by the stupid insistence of travelling in style when trying to flee (I still think they could have made it if they had taken two lighter carriages instead of one big and slow one - they were only two hours or so away from the border when they were caught at Varennes), I think the dead of the Royal princess de Lamballe was really tragic. She had been cousin and friend of Marie-Antoinette and though she could have been saved, decided to stick with her friend in captivity.


The princess was born a princess of Savoy and married the Bourbon-prince de Lamballe, only son of the enormously rich duke of Penthievre. That duke was the son of the Count of Toulouse, a later legitimized son of Louis XIV. and the Marquise de Montespan. As the king have cared very generously for his illegitimate children and all died before the duke with no other relatives to inherit, the Duke was the richest man in France. The Lamballe-marriage ended after only one year, when the prince died. His widow returned to court eventually and became a close friend of the queen. The duke had one surviving daughter as well, she was the wife of the duke of Orléans, Philippe "Egalité" who not only voted for the king's death but for the death of the princesse de Lamballe as well.



Historians nowadays are sure he voted against her because he wanted to get rid of her inheritance rights in favour of his wife. She was killed, her body desecrated and then carried to the captive queen's windows at the Temple, so the queen had to see her friend this way.


For me this is really a tragedy!

The duchess died of smallpox and was buried at St Denis beside her twin sister Anne-Henriette of France who had also died from smallpox in February 1752.

In October 1793 a mob broke into the vault and desecrated the burials during the French Revolution.

In 1908, the assassination of King Carlos I of Portugal and his son, Prince Royal Luís Filipe.
It was the greatest tragedy in the history of the Portuguese Royal Family.
