Re: Duke Max in Bavaria

Thanks for all the replies, I now understand that the issue is a civil one and not a dynastic one, and that he uses “Duke in Bavaria” as a name not a title. It is just confusing when the Royal House website refers to him as Duke Max in Bavaria as then it appears to be a title rather than a name.
The GHdA, the Bavarian Handbuch and Allemagne Dynastique are quite clear he -does not- have a Duke in Bavaria title. It is a -name- he acquired civilly.
Teschen comparison is irrelevant as there was a monarchical structure at that time which could confer / validate titles.
