Iberian Royal Families / Re: Brazilian Imperial Palaces
« on: February 11, 2010, 03:19:37 AM »
hello,

Does somebody has information on the imperial palaces of Brazil. I heard that the imperial family had a city palace in Rio de Janeiro, two palaces outside the city center in Sao Cristavao and Santa Cruz, and in Petropolis? Is this correct or were there more palaces or lodges? Does some one has pictures or plans or has other information?

Thanks,

ipflo

hi,

Does some one has information on the Esterhazy family? Who is the current prince Esterhazy, and does he still lives on the Austrian estates of the family? Is it a large family or is it a title close to extinction?

thanks

Balkan Royal Families / Re: Palaces and Castles of the Romanian Royal Family

hi

If there is still somebody who knows if there any good books on Romanian royal palaces, or Romanian palaces in general? It would be highly appreciated.

And does some one has a list of the palaces owned or used by the Romanian kings.

And does some one has heard about the Micul Trianon palace. It was bought in 1946 by king Michael, and was to be used as a summer residence.

Thanks in advance,

hi,

Does some one has some information about the Dukes de Beaufort de Spontins? It is a Belgian ducal family who had big estates in Belgium (Spontin/ Freyr) and in Bohemia/ Czech Republic (Bechov).

Thanks in advance,

Mediatized Noble Families / Re: Czech republic & Restitution
« on: June 19, 2007, 02:06:45 PM »
Well I did not know about their treatments of such buildings, but unfortunately it does not suprise me: heritage awareness is in many places not what it should be. and I can imagine that especially in such places, where there is not enough money (Czech), will power (Greece -> Tatoi), too 'many' monuments (Greece/ Turkey), or gap in knowledge or awareness it is very difficult to do what should be done.

I do not know about Castolovice: but when I have a look at their website and their webcams: http://www.zamek-castolovice.cz/ and http://www.zamek-castolovice.cz/camgb.html : I do not see anything what spoils the courtyard. Further, abuse should not be a reason to stop restitution: if Czech would make a good restitution deal it could reach that castles and mansions stay open when the ownership transfers (also in most cases when there was already a transfer, most castles have stayed open (the owners are more than happy with the money the visitors provide)). With regard to renovations Czech should make a good heritage law, what only allows renovations when there is a license. I also think that is something what the Czech state can do better than keeping the buildings: use the money to make good heritage laws, and to assess that these laws are obeyed.

Having Fun! / Re: Favourite German/Austrian Royal

I would like to mention Karl von Habsburg, the last austrian emperor, and Frederick Augusts, the last Saxon king. Further I also find William II an interesting figure, favourite is probably something else.
