Like I mentioned before, I think Prince Luitpold resembles Tsarevich Alexis evidently, also!!
So much so, that in the Having Fun section, they made a thread and included Prince Luitpold as a contender (the only one) that resembles Alexei!! ;D

Thats what got me interested with Prince Luitpold.

BTW, was nowadays Prince Luitpold of Bavaria (*1951), son of  Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Irmingard of Bavaria, named after little Prince Luitpold? His mother Princess Irmingard, daughter of CP Rupprecht, was actually named after her "sister" Irmingard, who died aged just some months in 1903 while her parents were in Japan.  :'(

Luitpold is a more traditional "Germanic" version of Leopold - this was the fashion in the 1890s and 1900s. Up till then Leopold was the more usual variant.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about the name:

"Luitpold is an old-fashioned form of the name Leopold and sometimes used within the context of the Margraves of Austria from the Babenberg dynasty."

So I suppose it's almost certain that the Luitpold born in 1951 was named after the Prince Luitpold 1901-1914 (his uncle).

Prince Luitpold was very handsome, and had such a short life, which is sad. I do think he resembled Alexei quite a bit. He seems to have come from a tragic family, with all the deaths and everything. Are there any books about them in English? Or that mention them? I don't read german. Are there any descendants from Albrecht, the only one of the children to live? Just curious. I think this family deserves loads of books, they were very tragic, and the photos are stunning.
