The names 创Komninos创, 创Katakouzinos创 and 创Palaiologos创 are very comon surnames in Greece.But i don磘 think any of them are decentens of thw Visantinum Royal Families. A legend says that the Greek Royal Family has its root at the last Emperor of Vezantium, because his baby son, Ioannis, was saved by his mother after the Othomans took Constantinople in 1453. Then, both boy and mother went to France, and Ioannis later married the daughter of the Danish king. It磗 to hard to believe it, but a legent is always a legent...!!

There is a mention of a Prince Ypsilanti (no first name given) in Reminiscences of a King, the memoirs of King Carol I of Roumania.  At the time Carol took the Roumanian throne, this Prince Ypsilanti was the Greek ambassador to Paris.

It had to be one of their descendants, as both Alexandros and Dimitrios (of 1821 uprising fame) were dead by the time Romania gained independence.

The princes Ypsalinti owned from 1891 - 1990 the castle of Rappoltenkirchen in Austria. From 1906 to 1964 was Alexandros Ypsilanti buried in the chapel of this Castle.

If you can read german, you can find some info about the castle on

I think neither.  As I said, there was no first name mentioned, and no other reference to him in the book.

The german text only says that mister KR Erich Fach is the owner, and is renovating the building. So I assume it is not open for the public.

The Hon.  Xenia Stefanidou, Consul General of Greece in San Francisco, honored Alexandros Ypsilantis in a speech televised here today on the occasion of Greek Independence Day.  In a heartfelt speech in Greek and English, she described how the Greek war of independence began in Montevlachia, now Rumania, in 1821 and culminated in the etablishment of the modern Greek state in 1930.  Best wishes to Greeks and Philhellenes on the 185th anniversary of modern Greece!
