George VII,
You've only yourself to blame for 'wasting your time'.  If you don't want to read this thread, then DON"T.  How hard is it to not click the link?

Royalist (self styled)
We aren't thinking in death,  we are noticing the passing of Nobles.  Would that a proper requiem  for them all could be arranged.

KYM,
Thank you for keeping us informed of the passing of these Nobles.

Archduke Karl Ludwig of Austria died this past Tuesday(12/11) at the age of 89. He was born on March 10, 1918 to HIM Emperor Karl I of Austria and his consort Empress Zita of Bourbon-Parma. In 1950, he married Princess Yolande of Ligne, and had four children. As far as I know, his wife and children all survive him. He is also survived by the remaining children of Blessed Karl I, Archdukes Otto, Felix, and Rudolf, along with their descendants and a few of their wives. Archduke Karl Ludwig fought with the American Army in World War II against the evil Nazi regime that ruled Germany. God rest his soul. My condolences go out to the entire House of Habsburg on this tragic occasion. I hope they can still have a good Christmas.

UPDATE: He was born as Archduke Karl Ludwig Maria Franz Josef Michael Gabriel Antonius Robert Stephan Pius Gregor Ignatius Markus d'Aviano of Austria, in the town of Baden bei Wien in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He moved to Brussels in about 1950 upon his marriage to Princess Yolande of Ligne, and died there. Interesting factoid: He served as an Officer in the U.S. Army and took part in the Allied invasion of Normandy on D-Day, 1944. Also, his Wikipedia article is now up, containing a link to his entry on http://www.ThePeerage.com and an obituary for him in German.

There's been a lot of nonsense on this thread, most of which I have now deleted.  (Not all those whose posts were deleted were to blame, but consistency required a lot of deletions.)  Let's keep it on topic.  For the last time, anyone who dislikes the purpose of this thread is not required to read it.

Royal Cello,

You remain a pretty good surgeon.

I'm sorry I contributed to what you had to remove (as it was in a way a cancerous growth, caring not for the effect my words would have on the forum as a whole.)

Thanks for not taking more aggressive actions against us who seem to forget that their is a time and place for things to be said, and other times and places where they should not be said....

Arabella Churchill, a member of the British aristocracy, died yesterday. She was born on October 30th, 1949 to Randolph Churchill (son of Prime Minister Winston Churchill) and his second wife June Osborne. Winston Churchill was a grandson of the 7th Duke of Marlbourough, thus making Miss Arabella a great-great-granddaughter of the same.

She would have been styled as a Duke's daughter had her father not wanted a Parliamentary career, leading Winston Churchill to decline the offer of King George VI to create him a hereditary peerage as Duke of London. Had Winston accepted it, his son Randolph would have become 2nd Duke of London upon the death of Sir Winston in 1965, and the current holder would be his son, Winston Spencer-Churchill, grandson of his namesake, who would have held the title since 1968.

It would have terminated Churchill's own political career to accept a dukedom from George VI, never mind his son's. I have always heard it that the Dukedom was offered on behalf of Elizabeth II when Churchill retired as Prime Minister in 1955, but, bizarrely, on the understanding that he would refuse it, as he did. It is hard to think of anyone more worthy of the honour, he should instead have been pressed to accept.

You're right! Apologies, the proposed Dukedom of London was offered by Queen Elizabeth II.

His Beatitude Archbishop Chrysostomos I of Cyprus has died at the age of 80. He was a member of the Autocephalous Greek Cypriot Orthodox Church. He was born in the village of Statos, in Paphos on the island of Cyprus, on September 27th, 1927.
He served as Bishop of Paphos from 1973 until November 12th, 1977, when he was elected to succeed the deceased Archbishop Makarios III, President of Cyprus.
In April 2000, he suffered a severe head injury when he fell from the staircase(ow!) of the Archepiscopal Palace, from which he never recovered. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in '04, and fell into a coma the following year.
In 2006, Cypriot bishops petitioned the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, His All Holiness Bartholomew I, to convene a pan-Orthodox synod to decide what should be done wrt the incapacitated Archbishop (the Cypriot Orthodox Church having no laws relevant to this situation).  The synod was duly convoked by the Patriarch of Constantinople at Chambesy, Switzerland, in May of that year. Its decision was that Archbishop Chrysotomos could be removed from office due to health problems, but would keep his honorific titles.
Chrysostomos, Bishop of Paphos was chosen to be locum tenens, and elections to choose the new Archbishop were set for September 24th, 2006. The aforementioned Bishop of Paphos was elected as His Beatitude Chrysostomos II, Archbishop of Nea Justiniana and All Cyprus.

With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the soul of Thy servant Archepiscope Chrysostomos, where there is neither sickness, nor sorrow, nor sighing, but life everlasting.
 
Amen.

Amen.

An absolutely beautiful prayer, Your Reverence(sp?). Is this, prithee, the standard Christian prayer to be used when a clergyman dies, or is it just used in Eastern Orthodoxy? Much obliged if you answer.

It's one of the prayers from the standard Orthodox Funeral Service (Parastasis).

Prince Pedro Gastao of Orleans-Braganza, head of the non-dynastic Petropolis branch of the Imperial House of Brazil and claimant to the throne of Brazil, died today in Villamanrique de la Condesa, Seville Province, Spain. He was 94. He was born as Prince Pedro de Alcantara Gastao Joao Maria Filipe Lourenco Humberto Miguel Gabriel Rafael de Orleans e Braganca on February 19th, 1913, in Eu in the department of Seine-Maritime, France, to Prince Pedro de Alcantara of Orleans-Braganza and his wife, a Bohemian noblewoman.
Upon his father's death in 1940, he became the titular 3rd Prince of Orleans-Braganza. He also would have become de jure Emperor of Brazil that year, but was unable to do so b/c his father had renounced his rights to the Brazilian throne upon his marriage in 1908. He [Prince Pedro de Alcantara] failed to gain the approval of his mother Empress Isabella to marry Countess Elizabeth Dobrzensky z Dobrzenicz, and so renounced his rights and those of his descendants to the throne of Brazil. (The same situation happened 8-10 years earlier to Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria when he proposed marriage to Sophie, another Bohemian noblewoman. However, Franz Ferdinand kept his rights, while renouncing those of his descendants to the Austro-Hungarian throne.)
On December 18th, 1944, he married Princess Maria de la Esperanza of the Two Sicilies(1914-2005) in Seville, Spain, and had six children with her. These children were:
       Prince Pedro Carlos of Orleans-Braganza(b. October 31st, 1945)*
       Princess Maria da Gloria of Orleans-Braganza(b. December 13th, 1946)
       Prince Afonso Duarte of Orleans-Braganza(b. April 25th, 1948)
       Prince Manuel Alvaro of Orleans-Braganza(b. June 17th, 1949)
       Princess Cristina Maria of Orleans-Braganza(b. October 16th, 1950)
       Prince Francisco Humberto of Orleans-Braganza(b. December 9th, 1956)

-(Yes, I know I need to add accents, tildes, and those little things on the letter c in Portuguese, but I have no clue how to add them. Could somebody plz help me on this? It'd be much appreciated.)
 
*NOTE:Prince Pedro Carlos is may continue his father's claim as Emperor of Brazil, although he could retract his father's repudiation of his father's renunciation of his rights to the Brazilian throne. Plz note that the death of Prince Pedro Gastao does NOT mean that the Emperor of Brazil has died. HIM Dom Luiz I is still de jure Emperor of Brazil, though he is doubtless grieving of the death of his long-lived cousin.
