Many of these families stuck to their old house laws and outdated constitutions for way too long. The requirement for equal marriages in this day and age is just unrealistic. Yet, ironically, I support Georg Friedrich of Prussia's claim as the head of the house. I stand buy Louis Ferdinand's right to select his heir, which he did, even though I may disagree with his stance on the equal marriage requirement. |
: In my opinion, it is very easy for members
: (or sometimes supposed or self-titled
: members) of former Sovereign Houses to
: proclaim a pretension and enter in dispute,
: because when there is no de facto reality
: some can easily "feed" either on
: doubt, misconceptions, denial of agreements
: or renunciations, evident inability of
: representing the family, rivalries or
: different (sometimes tendentious) views of
: facts or laws...some are just prideful, some
: others believe genuinely in what they
: defend, while others probably are just
: looking for social status... almost every
: time there are people eager to join these
: (sometimes a bit of snobbish and) restrict
: groups of defenders of what they consider
: (their) “legitimacy” ...
: As there are no Parliaments that might make
: new Laws concerning these once ruling
: families, they must look at the legislation
: that ruled them before they lost their
: thrones...but when it comes a time or need
: to make a change, in the current situation,
: who better to do it than the Head of the
: Family? He might do it just through his
: “sovereign" will or in harmony with his
: family...although the best is that they
: respect as much as possible tradition,
: because this way they keep better the
: connection to the past and prevent future
: Since World War I many and many things have
: changed concerning Laws of succession and
: marriages in the Monarchies which have
: survived in Europe, and with the highest
: degree of probability the same would have
: happened to the former Sovereign Families...
: These Families should obey but cannot be
: prisoners of the Laws of the past when an
: important problem emerges...
