I understand why Michael would want to ensure the succession for his own descendants but that is not how the game works. I know he had no control over it but hear me out: he should have had sons if he wanted his descendants to be able to claim this throne! I think he is very well aware that he is throwing it against the wall and trying to see what sticks but come on... you can't choose to give away what is not yours to give.
The Romanians could choose one of Michael's descendants for the throne or they could pick someone else. Still, the Prince of Hohenzollern will be the, or a, titular king. The same way we have three French claimants (one imperial, two royal).
I would really love to hear what the princely house has to say about this, if anything.
