    King Umberto II (1904-1983) and Queen Marie-José (1906-2001)

    Just a couple of questions regarding Umberto II and Marie-Jose: 1. Would the Savoys still reign had VE III abdicated in 1943 after the fall of Mussolini/Italy's surrender to the Allies? (or was the throne doomed at any rate because VE III acquiesced to the Fascists?) 2. Some have speculated...

    Duke Carlos Javier and the Royal House of Bourbon-Parma 1: August 2010- 2022

    As of now, the heir apparent is his brother Jaime. I know Javier has an out of wedlock child with Bridgitte Klynestra (if I got the spelling wrong, my mistake); but has he recognized the child? If so, wouldn't that make the child their heir to the Dukedom?

    Duke and Duchess of Anjou: birth of twin sons May 2010

    Nice that they got twins . . . should make for interesting family gatherings "Luis, Alphonso!" . . Anyhow as far as titles do . . . didn't the Count of Paris (the current one, not Henri the elder) sue Luis Alphonso over the use of the "Duke of Anjou" title about 20 years ago?

    A boy for the the Duke and Duchess of Vendôme: Prince Gaston, 19 November 2009

    1. I thought I read something that Prince Thibault died under "mysterious circumstances" in the Central African Republic. 2. Yeah I know he was disinherited by the late Count of Paris (as was Prince Michel, but said decisions were overturned).

    Emperor Karl I (1887-1922), Empress Zita ("The Last Empress") (1892-1989) and Family

    Really . . . I guess Otto's rationale might be "well if the body has been there for 87 years, why move it?"

    Emperor Karl I (1887-1922), Empress Zita ("The Last Empress") (1892-1989) and Family

    I know that Karl's body is buried in Maderia, while his heart is at Muri Abbey. How come his body hasn't yet been buried at the Crypt in Vienna?
