We should bear in mind that Elizabeth of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha is the daughter of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, whose blood was very much Scottish and English.

I did, however, once try to work out the proportion of British blood in George V, and gave up when I got to fractions of 10,000.

OTMA were not "German". However, the German government considered them "Princesses of German Blood" in the treaty of Brest Litovsk as the grand daughters of Grand Duke Ludwig IV of Hesse-Darmstadt.


I don't see why people do not understand that. When people say that the treaty doesn't concern OTMA because they are not German, are obviously not reading it right. If the treaty said 'German Princesses' than it would only be Alix and Ella, but they said 'Princesses of German Blood'...because they have German blood.

I've been looking at 'German' too much that it doesn't look like a word anymore.

I just hope that they don't get too many facts wrong this year, being the 100th Anniversary of the murders.
