Having Fun! / New Romanov Story --- Anyone Interested?
« on: September 26, 2007, 04:21:59 PM »
Hi all!

I've started another story about the Romanovs. It is centered around a young princess who, like her great-great grandmother before her, is the only one eligable for the crown and will become queen  in her own right at the age of 18. She first learns, at age 16, that she was unofficially made Queen of Romania at the tender age of five when her uncle, Mihai I abdicated in her favor. Her mother, Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, looked after the princess and her younger sister until they were old enough to take care of themselves. The young girl's grandmother is none other than Grand Duchess Anastasia.

If anyone's interested, please let me know, and I'll post the story in sections.

This is just another story I've come up with. I haven't really started writing it yet, but I'll post a list of characters here. It's kind of a "sequel" to my Romanov story.

SETTING: Russia, 1947 (there was no WW II in the story)

CAST of CHARACTERS:

Princess Natalya of Russia, age 20. Second youngest daughter of the Grand Duchess Marie and her husband, Count Andrei Vorontsov. Money-hungry and is only interested in marrying Feodor for his lute...

Grand Duke Feodor of Russia, age 25.. A distant relation to the immidiate Romanov family. Fiancé of Princess Natalya; The son of a rich grand duke in love with his fiancée.

Grand Duchess Maria Alexeevna of Russia, age 21. Oldest daughter and middle child of Tsar Aleksei II and Tsarina Elizaveta; Currently having an affair with her married cousin, Prince Michael of Romania (the son of Crown Prince Carol and Sitta of Greece).

Grand Duchess Marina Alexeeva of Russia, age 18. Youngest child and daughter of Tsar Aleksei II and Tsarina Elizaveta; Younger sister of Grand Duchess Maria Alexeevna.

Tsar Aleksandr IV of Russia, age 22. Oldest child and only son of the late Tsar Aleksei II and Tsarina Elizaveta; Married to Spanish countess, Esperanza who is now called Nadezdha after converting to Russian Orthodox.

Prince Michael of Romania, age 26. Only child of Crown Prince Carol of Romania and Princess Helen "Sitta" of Greece. Currently married to Princess Elisabeth of Belgium (Anastasia and Leopold's firstborn) by whom he has a daughter Cristina. His wife is carrying their second child.

PS. this character list isn't finished yet...

I couldn't find other threads on them, so I figured I'd start one. If someone finds any pictures of Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson from the early 1930s, could you please post them here?

thanks. :)

Having Fun! / Names of Russian Royalty
« on: February 01, 2006, 05:24:52 PM »
It seems like in the Russian Imperial family, everyone is named for everyone else. There are/were so many Olgas, Alexandras, Marias, Georges....you know.

Are there any other names that could've been chosen for new family members? Like Yuliana, Svetlana, Gregory...

Having Fun! / The Princess Diaries Series (books & movies)

Hi. I didn't know where else to put this...
Is the fictional country of Genovia based on a real principality like Monaco or something? and what about the family's last name? Renaldi in the movie, Renaldi Grimaldo in the book...Is the last name based off the Grimaldi family of Monaco?

Who invented them? Why were they considered so "fashionable" at the time? When did they go out of style?

BeNeLux Royalty / TM King Filip & Queen Mathilde of the Belgians

How old is Princess Elisabeth now? I know she's in succession after her father, Crown Prince Phillipe of Belgium. Will she be the first-Belgian born queen? I mean, not just the woman who marries the crown prince, but a girl born to the male heir.

I know that their daughter, Katherine married two princes of England, but didn't they have more children?

The Tudors / "Bloody Mary"? (Mary I)
« on: August 01, 2005, 11:41:58 PM »
She was the only child of King Henry VIII and his first wife, Katherine of Aragon. Her mother, Katherine, was the daughter of the famous Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain (Christopher Columbus in 1492).

But when Mary became Queen of England, why was she so nasty and cruel to her subjects? Particularly to her half-sister, the future Elizabeth I?

Who were they and which of his 2? wives was their mother(s)?

What did he do during his short reign? And has it been proven that none Catherine II's kids were his, or was Paul I actually a Romanov?

The Habsburgs / Empress Maria Theresa and her large family
« on: April 23, 2005, 12:30:09 PM »
Didn't her father King Charles leave her bankrupt when he died? I have a video series called ROYAL SECRETS. Catherine II was on it too...Maximilian of Hapsburg and King George and Caroline of Brunswick.

Scandanavian Royal Families / Crown Princess Victoria
« on: April 23, 2005, 12:23:04 PM »
What kind of duties does she do? I mean, besides representing the Swedish royal family at important events and stuff? And when do you think she will become queen?...I mean, don't the current rulers of a country sometimes have thier hier(ess) take over for them even when they're not ill or dying?
