more royal news

I updated the royal family tree post with as many links as I could find from wikipedia to the people in the list. Hope it’s interesting to you.

Also, here’s the line of succession to the British throne, featuring the top 1,285 people in line. For some reason I’m not on it, suggesting that either there is some kind of mistake on wikipedia (in which case I guess I can edit it) or my task of eradication to reach the throne is going to be harder work than I thought.

Some great names though, notably:

Count Prosper of Castell-Castell
Countess Désirée of Castell-Castell (sounds foxy)
Fabian von Ritter Baron zu Groenesteyn (sounds dashing)
Countess Anna-Elisabeth Kinsky von Wchinitz und Tettau (sounds, um, kinsky?)
Alexandra Nikolaievna Eltchaninovna (over-syllabled, surely)
James Townsend (yawn)
Prince Alexis of Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld (do not attempt to pronounce if you do not have a full complement of teeth)
Oda Hug (sounds dumpy but sweet)
Fie Bitsch (no need for that kind of language, thank you)
#1028: Karoline Matilde Vlangali-Handjeri (b. 1900), great-great-granddaughter of Louise Auguste of Denmark through her son Friedrich Emil August of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg, and the oldest person on this list. (probably not going to ascend to the throne, realistically)
Dana Smith (I’m sure we can get more inventive)
Count Valdemar Georg of Rosenborg (that’s better)
Prince Emmanuel Emmanuelovich Galitzine

Well, you get the idea. Maybe a few prospective names in there for baby Mogendorff? I wonder if we could get away with any of those fantastically European names.
