LadyLeana 07-07-2008 06:28 AM

As far as is known, he has taken economics. Princess Astrid has said on several occasions that maybe he will follow in his father's footsteps and work for a bank.

Eloise 08-15-2008 12:09 PM

where is the bank?

LadyLeana 08-15-2008 12:24 PM

where Amedeo will work? your guess is as good as mine... Maybe Switzerland, maybe London... No names/places mentioned in the article I read. After all, even if he is a prince, he will probably have to go through the excruciating experience of endless job interviews and CV's being refused, just like any other person.
Where his father works: Zurich or Basel, I'm not sure which, in any case, he's one of four partners at a private bank, for which you need some $250.000 at least before they want your money.
Maybe we'll know more when they finally show something about his being graduated on tv...

In the Wikipedia page about Prince Amedeo (Prince Amedeo of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is written that "In September 2005 he began his studies at the London School of Economics where he was suite mates with his second cousin Prince Charles of Bourbon and of Habsburg."
Who is this "Prince Charles"??

Nobody's named like that (I'm QUITE sure) .. that's very impressive that similar inventions can be found on wikipedia

MAfan 04-02-2009 11:31 AM

I also have reasoned about him: about the surname, I have thought that Charles can be a descendant of both the Families; and to be a second cousin of Amedeo, can be only a great-grandson of Emperor Charles I of Austria. But there's no Charles in his descendants who are both second cousins of Amedeo and have, less or more, his age...

House of Bourbon-Seville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Salvek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in the current owner section. He's very wealthy and well educated.

MAfan 04-02-2009 05:44 PM

Can I have more infos about him? Something sounds me strange:
1-the title of Archduke of Slavek: never heard something similar
2-the Royal House of Bourbon-Seville: never heard, never read in the genealogies of Bourbon House; in 1746, Seville was part of the Kingdom of Spain, so no Royal House of Bourbon Seville could exist
3-there's no Archduchesses Maria Victoria of Austria in Habsburg Family genealogies
4-if Charles is a descendant of Queen Victoria, he would be listed in the Line of Succession to the British Throne; but it isn't so...(Line of succession to the British throne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
5-if Charles is an Archduke of Austria, he would be listed in Habsburg genealogies, but it isn't so...

If someone could clarify these points, I would be grate to him.

MAfan 04-02-2009 05:45 PM

However, they couldn't be second cousins...

I know, but that's all the information there is on him.

Marengo 04-03-2009 04:49 AM

I am sorry but he definately is a fraud. Note that none of his parents and grand parents are listed, as is usual for ANY royal person (or even for many non royal persons) on wikipedia. The wikipedia article stays very vague about his anscestors though. The ones he does list, an Archduchess Maria Victoria, spanish Bourbons named Alphonse, Constance and Catherine (not exactly Spanish sounding names) are fake.

There is indeed a cadet branch of the Spanish RF, which received the title 'Duke of Seville', a title they still use. But this line never married a Habsburg AND the genealogy can be checked here, on Paul Theroff's online Gotha. Look at the descendants of 14c) Infante Francisco de Paula, duke of Cadiz. No Charles is there (and considering it is a Spanish duke I suppose Carlos would have made the fraudulous claim less obvious)

Furthermore, there are several mistakes in the wikipedia article that makes me believe that this is a person with a vivid imagination at work. Several errors in titles, style etc, and esp. the claim to have been on the best dressed list of Vanity Fair and one of the sexiest men alive seem far fetched. And it should be easy enough to check, after which we will find that this person was on no such list as he does not exist. He is also rather original in mixing titles that have never been mixed. Sadly this happens every so often, there is a person online who dedicates much of his free time claiming he is the rightful king of Prussia for example, and some years ago he spammed this forum with that information.

Now, I suppose somebody should contact wikipedia about it :whistling:

amedea 04-03-2009 05:01 AM

I more and more astonished!! what an enormous fake!! however this guy, becouse he involves in all this true and known people such as prince Amedeo, can have some legal trouble (I would say: I hope he will)

Marengo 04-03-2009 05:09 AM

It is rather dodgy indeed, esp. as in the past many people (ab)used a fake title to win confidence of other people and in the end usually steal their money. In this case it is probably less innocent but still...

Tilia C. 04-03-2009 05:42 AM

I find it somehow notable that this mysterious Charles pops up on April 1st! Can it a joke??? I have to admit that I don't know how difficult it would be to manipulate Wikipedia.

I checked the genealogy and didn't find him. I was just reporting what I found - which is in fact the ONLY information available on him anywhere online. I was a little surprised to read that he was suite mates with Amedeo at LSE in an article on Amedeo. After I read this I used all my internet skills ;) to find anything on him and that was all I could find, don't shoot the messenger - plz.

I've got myself on Luxembourg time this week and next (despite being in Pacific Standard Time) scanning the Luxembourg news for "major news" so I had to have something to occupy my late night bordem.

Surely, Amedeo would have requested a change of suites to avoid such a hanger on fake looking to milk a connection with him?

Marengo 04-03-2009 08:20 AM

I am not shooting at all, LM, sorry if I made that impression :doh:!

I suppose that whoever was sharing a room with Prince Amedeo will be discreet enough not to spill the beans on wikipedia. I guess this 'Charles' person has also changed the wikipedia entry of Amedeo, so.... I suppose he might be changing more profiles of young royals too. So don't be surprised if you find a wikipedia engagement of Alexandra of Luxembourg or Alix de Ligne :napoleon:.
