  1. Just wondering – how do these titles continue to exist decades after the kingdom is gone? I can understand keeping the title if you were born while the kingdom existed but after a generation or so, it seems strange.

    1. Even though the kingdom itself doesn’t physically exist,the monarchs and the ruling class and former ruling families do and the titles are hereditary. The basic structure still exists and will continue and if sometime in the future a former monarch gains power again then the former goverment could be set up.

  2. I come from one of those defunct ruling families and they still carry on as if their titles still mean something. It is difficult to get to know extended families when one part of the clan claims nobility and has issues associating with non-nobles. None of us are HRH anymore. The kingdom has been dismantled.

    1. It should be remembered that the past can easily become the future.

      1. Or it can be an interesting part of history, including one’s own history. I remember believing it was possible for me to claim my rightful place. But, alas, my cousins in Germany continue with the monikers of princess, princess, Count, baron, etc.despite being so far removed and in turn, making it difficult for them to believe we are that closely related (since we are simply Americans).
