Monarchies of Europe

Index and Introduction

1 = British Royal Family

My interest in European Royalty started about 30 years or so ago when I became intrigued with the inter-marriages between Queen Victoria's descendants and other European Royal Families.

I started off with one large genealogical table using a simple word processor, gradually moving across to a combination of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.

I then tried my hand at my own Web Editing more than 20 years ago (the Internet Archive Wayback Machine shows my Web Site was in being on 03 April 2000) and found that I could provide hyper-links between various parts of my Web Page. This was the stimulus I needed to start my Monarchies of Europe Web Site. The original genealogical table was too large to produce as one Web Page, so I took the plunge and started to produce separate Web Pages for individual Royal Families

I have produced separate genealogical tables and hence corresponding number of Web Pages for most of the main European Royal Families (47 to date) and update or add to them on a regular basis. Visitors to my site can readily click between the pages for any inter-marriage. The genealogical tables are very comprehensive and I believe they include all the descendants of Queen Victoria.

Wherever possible I have traced the lineage via the male line of the family, one of the notable exceptions being the descendants of Prince Phillip of Greece (Duke of Edinburgh) which are traced via Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain II of Great Britain.

It is not my intention to duplicate the details shown in a number of other excellent Web Sites.

I have decided to only include the year details for births and deaths, and to omit dates of marriages all together.

The system I have adopted for identifying each individual is based on the following numbering system i.e.

1.1111111 up to 47.9999999

The initial one or two digits before the decimal point "." represents the particular Royal House i.e.

1 = British Royal Family,

2 = Danish Royal Family etc up to

47 = Austrian (Modena Line) Royal Family.

The numbers which follow after the decimal point "." is based on a variation to the "Henry" numbering system and is a way of identifying descendants. The first number (or exceptionally letter) refers to the first generation children in the Royal family, the second number (or exceptionally letter) refers to the second generation and so on. 1 denotes the first born, 2 denotes the second born, the corresponding alphabetic letters are used for 10 th born onwards (i.e J for the tenth born, K for the eleventh born etc)

I am indebted for the information gleaned from Hein Bruins and Paul Theroff Web Pages which I found invaluable in the initial preparation of my Web Site.

My special thanks to Arnaud Bunel who kindly gave me permission to use the various coats-of-arms from his excellent Heraldry Web Site. The site as at 07 February 2022 appears to be no longer in existence.
