Wiwill,eldest son of King Willem III was named once as to being a possible suitor to one of QV's daughters.
But QV held strong "second thoughts" regarding this,as she wasn't to keen,to say the least,on King Willem III who in both personal and "professional" life was a nuisance in her view.

Wiwill set his mind on Mattie van Limburg Stirum,but his father strongly opposed such a match,
some sources claim Willem III was Mattie's father.
Wiwill left for Paris and stayed there,and eventually died there as well.The cause?
Pneumonia,a duel or the "common Royal disease",syphylus.

Making a jump to Wiwills half sister Queen Wilhelmina,the latters marital problems were,to a certain extend,caused by Hendrik's apparently suffering from the same,hence  all miscariages and the stillborn.

Dear Alex,

Thank you for your kind words of welcome.

I'm impressed by the way you explain as to how a Russian Orthodox panihikda should be conducted.

Although not just an inspiring little blessing,beautifull as they can be,and being aware that HIM already
had a service with all the rites of a full religious/state funeral,remains the fact that that service took place
in Danmark,not on Holy Russian Soil,so wouldnt there be  "more adjustments" to the service at St.Peter and Paul?

Btw,in my previous post I mentioned the Metropolitan but I mean the Patriarch,ofcourse.He seems to be
a person with influence if not power,I only question his good use of it,and to whom's better interest?

I look forward to your thoughts in writing,

It is still a family in turmoil,as we have witnessed on occasions.I wonder,could they at least agree on who's present at the reburial of HIM without making a nuisance of themselves.Would the Metropolitan be the decisive entity in this?
