Was he very sad about this decision. Was he the first born? But I am glad that he did the honest thing and married his lady. Cudos to him

the children of Prince Jean aren't princess/princes. They are Counts/Countess de Nassau as is his wife.

er .... he didn't give it up all that long ago.

and I would tend to think if things were changed where "it happened today", he would still have had to give up his rights. Luxembourg is a very religious country and imo a "sea change" cannot come about until at least the (former) Grand Duke Jean passes on.

i found this over at the benelux msg board. grand duke henri upped, so to speak, the titles of jean and robert as well as their children on nov 27, 2004. here's a link for anyone intersted: http://members3.boardhost.com/Benelu...sg/139723.html

i think that's good news as i believe that jean shouldn't have had to give up his rights just to marry the woman he loves(ed)- loved b/c there's news that he and helene are divorced, which is sad.
