Who would you prefer?
« on: October 02, 2004, 05:38:06 AM »
Just as a kind of survey, who would you prefer if the Russian throne was restored? Don't comment on other people's choices(leave that to the other bazillion threads out there  ;D), just post your preferences.

For me (either gender and oldest first)

1. The descendents of Kseniya Alexandrovna and Alexander Mikhailovich

2. The descendents of Olga Alexandrovna

3. The Vladimirovichi

Illiynsky family or Sandro and Xenia's decendants

I really feel, since the dynasty is over and the rules are null and void, that technically Xenia's sons would be the most closely related to the Tsar. In the British royal family, if all the brothers were dead or there were no sons, the line would go to the daughter, so in that case Xenia should be the rightful heir, and since she's gone, her offspring. Add to this that Sandro, her husband, was also a Romanov, so I can't see a more 'purebred' or 'blue blooded' direct line.

My preference has absolutely no relevance. If it did, I would go with the Ilyinsky family - I think they are terrific.

Does the remaining Yurievsky Prince may be considered? After all, he belongs to a line senior to the Mikhailovichi.
Does any of Prince Illynsky's sons have male offspring?

Paul Dmitrievitch had four children by his second marriages. His oldest son, Dmitri, has three daughters, Catherine, Victoria and Lela. His oldest daughter, Paula, has two kids, Alexander and Makena. His youngest daughter, Anne, has three daughters by two different marriages, and his youngest son, Michael, has one daughter, Taylor.

The only boy in the family is Alexander, Paula's son.
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?

The descendents of Ksenia and Sandro.

Isn't Prince Nicholas, the Head of the House of Romanov, a descendent of Ksenia and Sandro through one of their sons?  ???

I second this motion.  They understand demoracy and would make ideal constitutonial monarchs.

The Salic Law...shouldn't it be up-held to date...as being the rule in 1918?....It could then be changed by the Russian Legislative system...as had been done in Sweden....
