    Royal Families Of Yugoslavia 1: 2003 - Feb 2005

    There is a woman who calls herself Princess Milena Petrovic-Njegoš of Montenegro who lives in Southern California. She is the daughter of "Prince" Milo Petrovic-Njegoš, who I understand was a distant cousin of the Royal Family and not entitled to call himself "Prince" of anything. She wrote a...

    Americans Who Married Royals and Aristocrats

    Did Rita Hayworth marry the Aga Khan? I thought she married Prince Aly Khan...? Or are they one and the same person?

    Isabelle, Comtesse de Paris, née Princess of Orléans & Bragança (1911-2003)

    Forgive me for being nit-picky, but there is no "P" in "Comtesse"! ;)

    Rival Claimants to the French Throne 1: Ending 2020

    The headship of the Royal House of France is disputed; to many, Madame la Comtesse de Paris was simply the de jure Duchesse d'Orléans. The Orléans line is the least senior of all the surviving lines of the House of Bourbon, though many consider all those lines senior to it to have forfeited all...

    Americans Who Married Royals and Aristocrats

    With respect to Zsa Zsa, her husband Frederick bought his title. That is, he was adopted as an adult by a Sax-Anhalt Princess in exchange for money. As a result of his adoption he gained the last name Furst von Saxe Anhalt. So he isn't really a Prince and Zsa Zsa most certainly is not a...

    Royal Family of Egypt 1: Ending Aug 2023

    How terribly sad. Queen Nazli is buried in a Catholic cemetary just a few miles from my office in Culver City, California; perhaps I'll pay a visit one day soon. Is it true that she converted to Catholicism? Did her daughter as well?

    Liechtenstein Princely Family (March 2003-October 2004) Part 1

    Asphyxiation? That's odd. To be honest, I can't say that I know for certain it was a gunshot wound, I never saw any sort of official statement. I'd heard it was called a "hunting accident" but then again I didn't get this from any source I would consider authoritative.

    Prince Emanuele Filiberto And Clotilde Courau: News-Pictures 1: May 2003-Sept 2004

    I believe she's scheduled to deliver the baby by Caesarian-section on the 21st of this month. The baby will be born in Geneva rather than in Rome as had been planned.

    Duke and Duchess of Calabria and Family 1: June 2003-May 2008

    Sean: Just to clarify, I can see why you thought I had described all the non-royals on that guests list as royals - I did a cut-and-paste from the Duke of Castro's website, so those were not actually my words lumping all the non-royals in with the royals. I acknowledge the fact that it looked...

    Duke and Duchess of Calabria and Family 1: June 2003-May 2008

    Sean: To address your contention first, I used the term "noteable exception" in regards to the absence of Spanish royals at Maria Carolina's baptism, not "sole exception". "Noteable" means "worthy of notice", not "solitary". I really didn't feel that it was necessary to list every single...

    Sean: ;) Here a list of the guests at Princess Maria Carolina's christening - I forgot all about Prince Kardam of Bulgaria, The Duke of Aosta, the Princes Alexander of Liechtenstein, and the Countess Secco d'Aragona (née Archduchess Katherina of Austria)... The event was attended by the...

    Duke and Duchess of Calabria and Family 1: June 2003-May 2008

    My goodness, Sean - you're quite partisan about this, aren't you? :rolleyes: The "worthless orders" offered by the "Castro branch" might be of no value in the eyes of the Infante Don Carlos of Spain and his supporters, but it is rather telling that, in 1960, most of the members of these...

    Duke and Duchess of Calabria and Family 1: June 2003-May 2008

    I think it's perfectly understandable to call the dispute a full-fledged controversy; two branches of the family are claiming to be the senior line of the Royal House of the Two Sicilies. That's controversial! :winkiss: The origins of the dispute go back to the year 1900, when Prince...

    Rival Claimants to the French Throne 1: Ending 2020

    Are you referring to the Treaty of Utrecht? Louis' grandsons were closer relatives (grandnephews) to the deceased Carlos II of Spain than the Habsburg Archduke Karl, who was a very distant cousin. The Spanish succession laws did not disqualify female inheritance, so the descendants of...

    He definitely died of a gunshot wound, though it was described as an accidental shooting. Prince Wenzel was known to have had some rather deep emotional problems all his life.

    Rival Claimants to the French Throne 1: Ending 2020

    "Philippe Egalité" and his son Louis-Philippe committed crimes against the legitimate kings of France, Louis XVI, Charles X and Henri V. If Orléanistes hold that the crimes of Franco can be visited upon his great-grandson, they had best not look too closely at the past of their own dynasty - nor...

    Rival Claimants to the French Throne 1: Ending 2020

    Had a restoration in favor of the Orléanistes been effected, then yes, Madame la Comtesse de Paris would have been Queen of France; had there been a Legitimiste restoration in favor of the Bourbon-Anjou claimant, Madame would have been only the Duchesse d'Orléans. By all accounts Madame was a...

    Isabelle, Comtesse de Paris, née Princess of Orléans & Bragança (1911-2003)

    The Comtesse de Paris was born Princess Isabel of Orleans-Braganza. Her father was the Crown Prince of Brazil, but renounced his claim in order to marry her mother, an Hungarian countess of unequal birth; thus their children and descendants are styled Princes/Princesses of Orleans-Braganza...
