Re: Prince Gaston of Orléans

No, you misread me.
I meant he was created Imperial Prince-Consorte
He did not have any other title in Brazil, although he kept his french RH and Count d'Eu titles.
The similarity with Pr. Albert was that both were created "just" Prince Consorte without any other title (Albert many years later, may be to compensate the denial of King-Consorte he sought after his pairs Fernando II or Francisco de Asis)
When I said the "w/o the Imperial" I was referring to Albert, not to Gaston, who got it.
And should Pss.Isabel have succedded her father, Gaston would have been Emperor-Consorte
Do you mean that Gaston remained only a Royal Highness, and that the qualification of Imperial Highness was withheld from him?
I know that Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha got elevated from Highness or Serene Highness to Royal Highness, when in 1857 he was created into the Prince Consort of the United Kingdom.
He was styled as Imperial Prince-Consorte after his marriage.
The same way as Pr.Albert (w/o the Imperial)
Why wasn't he given any Brazilian royal title, after marrying Princess Imperial Isabel?
