About Me

I am 51 years old and I have had an interest in European royalty since the late 1970s. My main interest is in British Royalty but I am also interested in all the monarchies of Europe past and present. My study and interest in royalty is basically a hobby of mine although my independent study did help me earn my bachelor’s degree in European History. I will concentrate on European Royalty past and present. This blog will mainly focus on the past but I will deliver current news of both the reigning and non reigning royal families in Europe. Although there are monarchies that still exist in other parts of the world my main focus is Europe although I will include news, when it happens, from other royal families throughout the world.

If you want to know how I got interested in European Royalty you can read my initial post.

  3. May I please use your picture of Otto the Great for a video project?

  4. I find your site very interesting. (I’m afraid I don’t see your name – but with all respects),…I continue: -> To keep your “head” around so much and how it all “fits together” – it’s no wonder you have a degree! Too much of the ebb and flow of humanities banes and joys not to have a “sheep skin” to show for having mastered it! I was wondering about the Hanoverian claims to the British Throne. Since most and many came from an area of Germany closely abiding (or had a seemingly great deal of genomic assistance from there in any event) did the Hanover’s want to rule as Hanover’s? – and if not, why not? Wasn’t this prior to WWII or even the Franco-Prussian Wars in 1870’s? Thank you if you have a moment to refer me or explain. (Oh, P.S. Is the Stone back in Scotland? Or still under Elizabeth II’s Throne in Parliament?) Thank you for your time. ~~ John G.

    Hello – we are the same age – a good one. I have traced my husband, on Ancestry, to King Henry and Eleanor of Aquitaine. So is this the illegitimate lineage? Thank you, M

  6. Hi,
    I’ve been looking for information about some gold plated tin types? of Madame Barbara Dmitrievna Rimsky-Korsadova, Is there any way that I can send you a picture of these and get our opinion?

  7. Recently my Aunt has picked up a hobby of looking up our family history and she came across some pretty astounding items that I need your help with considering you might have better resources than I. She has come to link our lineage to Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou and of course back to William the Conqueror and his wife Matilda of Flanders… What I was wondering if there is any evidence beyond the War of Roses of the Lancaster side of the family?? I am having a hard time myself making the connection… thanks a lot!
