The Windsors / "Highnesses" in British nobility
« on: August 09, 2015, 02:14:25 AM »
This question came up in a recent conversation.

Outside of the Windsor family, are there currently any spouses of UK nobility who were born with foreign royal titles? Thank you.

Thank you all for the Suffolk threads here.

What does anyone know about the decendants of Mary's & Brandon's younger daughter, Eleanor? What role did Lady Margaret Clifford (and her children) play in the reign of her cousin, Elisabeth I?

Alexander Cuza united the Principalities of Walachia & Moldavia, creating the nucleus of modern Romania. After he was driven out, the Hohenzollerns gained the throne.

Cuza sort of vanishes of the radar after that. I can find almost nothing of his fate in the English speaking web. Does anyone know what happened to him? Did he leave any descendants?

A mystery novel was published within the last year or so. The plot turned revolved around a reel of film that purported to show the execution of the Imperial Family.

Supposedly, Lenin commissioned a young film maker to record the whole execution. Obviously, Lenin wanted this as proof that the family was dead.

The novel is fiction, of course. It's an intriguing idea, though. The film medium did exist then. The Soviets were open to all sorts of new gadgetry.

Is it vaguely possible that such a film exists, or did exist?
