Welcome to my Royal News page. For the purposes of this project, I will keep
the traditional definitions of the three sections of the Gotha; i.e.,
Section I includes families which have enjoyed hereditary sovereign status in
Europe and America since the Napoleonic era; Section II includes those families
which have been called the Mediatized Houses under
the terms of the Congress of Vienna; and Section III
includes all houses attaining Ducal or Princely rank which do not qualify for
inclusion in Sections I or II.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Readers may have noticed that in the past couple years I have
posted fewer and fewer items of news. This is because most news of this type is
now widely available in a variety of places on the internet. I intend to keep
these pages going, but in general I will post only the most important events,
plus items submitted to me by my correspondents with requests that I post them.
For the most complete listing of births, deaths, marriages, etc., among the
European royal houses and higher nobility, as well as interesting discussions
about issues affecting them as well as detailed genealogical research, I urge
the reader to visit and join the Nobiliana Forum. All news posted here is also posted
there, plus many more items not posted here ARE posted
there as well.
If you have information which belongs on these pages, or have corrections to
material posted here, please contact me
