Re: Royal courts in exile

Yes, most exiled rulers retained some faithful staff and perhaps an assortment of hangers-on, but I am thinking that most if not all examples in the above discussion did not involve the establishment of fully functional royal courts that were recognized as such by anyone other than themselves.
Other than the exiled Stuart Court in its early years and the Portuguese Royal Court set up in Brazil, substantial Royal Courts-in-exile, in the truest sense, have not existed in Europe for 200 years.
