Sorry, but are you sure that she was Roman Catholic?


Mackendonsky,

Agronmoe vam cpacibo.  It was the poor construction of my English sentence.  I do not believe that she was Roman Catholic at all, but I could be wrong.  I thought that she was a "luteranka".  But either or, her reception into the Orthodox Church would have been the same.  She would have been annointed with the Holy Oils, then she would have confessed and communied.

Izto rz, cpacibo.  Inagda ya ozhibaiyouc.  

With all the best from Shanghai,

1.  The Dowager Grand Duchess, The Grand Duchess and the "Poclednik" live in Madrid as a grace-and-favor of Queen Sophia of Spain, a relative of the Imperial Family.

Not "poslednik" but "naslednik".

Dear Arleen,

I cannot find "Vue et Images du Monde" (meaning the magazine published every week in Paris on line).   There many listings here but not that one.

With all of the best,

Excuse me, Makedonsky, but it was a play on words.  Panyatna?

Nas vs. pos.

Thank you for pointing it out to me.

As the French say, "donnant, donnant".

There are many times that I feel so illiterate because I do not know other languages besides English.  This is one of them.

Dearest Arleen,

No, please don't say that.  Look, I speak French.  I also did a google search.  It threw up about 1000 exact matches and I had to read through most of them to discover that none related to the magazine in question.

And I will continue to look to assist you to find it here.

With all the kindest regards from Shanghai,


A.A.

A large colour photograph of Grand Duke George appeared in the magazine Vanity Fair in the September 2003 issue. I hesitate to post a scan of this photograph as it is surely under international copyright.

I have this edition of Vanity Fair. Excellent photo of GD George, excellent photos of other Royals and excellent edition of Vanity Fair overall-one of their better-if you like Royals.

I think that Maria should seriously consider marrying George off to either HRH Princess Altinaï of Montenegro (b. 1977) or maybe even to HRH Princess Theodora of Greece (b. 1983). While Theodora is the more royal of the two, they both are of good Slavic (country, not ancestry), Orthodox dynasties.

I prefer Altinaï as that royal house is heading in the direction of extinction.

If Maria is looking for a girl with money, however, and she doesn't mind her son marrying a German, then she could consider HSH Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis (b. 1982?). I mean her brother's a billionare, surely she'd bring a large dowry, that is if they still do that kind of thing.

It should be interesting to see who he marries or if he marries. If he does, it is more than likely to be someone of equal blood, like some of the princesses mentioned, than not. If he does not marry at all, then that line of Sucession is over. So it is rather imperative that he does. As for someone of unequal blood, he might want to, but I think he would be steered away from that, as his is the only Branch of the former Romanov dynasty that is still fully royal by the laws of the house. An unequal marriage would harm that. Anyway, it certainly is difficult to find a suitable marriage partner in this day and age, but even more so when you are royalty with so many requirements of a future wife. As for Prince William, he is more free to marry whom he likes.

Why would Georgi marry someone of equal blood?

Nowadays, even rulling Royal Houses, don't marry with someone else, who is Royalty or is coming from a noble family.
Why would Georgy? Its such an old law.

Why marry egually if it is just an old, stupid rule? Only for the claim?

Probably only for the claim, that is rather likely. It is a rather important part of the claim. Anyway, the marriage laws have never been changed, although one wonders if the Romanov dynasty would have ruled longer, those rules would have been changed. But as it happened, they weren't.

Because of the strong relations between the Montenegrian Royal House and the other Romanov claimants, a princess from Montenegro is an unlikely choice. A Greek princess would be very well received in Russia and would be a great match.
