 Raffaello de Banfield, properly Raphael Douglas Freiherr von Banfield Tripcovich died on Monday, January 7th. He was 85.
 He was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne on June 2nd, 1922 to Gottfried Freiherr von Banfield* and Countess Maria Tripcovich**, both of the Austro-Hungarian nobility.
 For information on his composing career, see his Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raffaello_de_Banfield
 On December 27th, 1976, he married Maria delle Grazie dei Conti Brandolini d'Adda***, of the Italian nobility. The marriage was childless.
 His family is reflective of the wonderful diversity of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

*Gottfried Freiherr von Banfield (1890-1986) was a flying ace for Austria-Hungary during the First World War. He was born in Castelnuovo, Kustenland, Austria-Hungary, to a British father serving in the Austro-Hungarian navy. He was awarded the Military Order of Maria Theresa and ennobled as a Baron in the Austrian nobility for his services in the First World War by HI&RM Bl. Emperor Karl I of Austria on August 17th, 1917. He emigrated to England in 1920 and became a permanent resident there. In 1927, he did the same thing, only to Italy.

**Countess Maria Tripcovich originates from Trieste. She died in 1976.

***Maria delle Grazie dei Conti Brandolini d'Adda had previously been married to Count Leonardo Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga. She had three children from this marriage.

HM King Jorge de Bagration* of Georgia died today in Tbilisi. His son Prince Don Irakli de Bagration-Mukhranski y de Zomoza has inherited his claim and rightful place with King of Georgia. Jorge de Bagration will be interred in Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia on Sunday.

Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jorge_de_Bagration

*There is an ongoing succession dispute over who is the rightful King of Georgia. Jorge de Bagration claimed the throne as George XIV of Georgia. My own personal view is that Jorge de Bagration's son should be given the position of King of Georgia while all the other claimants to the pre-annexation Georgian kingdoms and ther small states should either be given hereditary rule over them as governers of constituent states of the Kingdom of Georgia or they should be medaitsed and maintain some form of royal rank.

Shocked!  Has there been any indication what the cause of death was?  In addition to being the head of the Royal House of Georgia,  Prince Jorge's aunt is Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Leonida Georgevna (Dowager Empress), widow of Grand Duke (Emperor) Vladimir Cyrilovich Romanov, and mother of Grand Duchess (Empress) Marie Vladimirovna of all the Russias.

He was born on February 22nd, 1944 in Rome to Irakli Bagration-Mukhraneli and Countess Maria Antonietta Pasquini, who died giving birth to him.

Jorge de Bagration was reported to have 'died of hepatitis' by Akaki Asotiani, the leader of the Union of Georgian Traditionalists, a political party founded by Jorge's father. (Check the Spanish-language news article on the link in the quoted post above for more info.)

He was the second cousin of HM the King of Spain and the first cousin of HIM the Empress of Russia.

My Lord!

Now this is shocking indeed!!!

And when I think he has assumed the arms we did for him just a few days ago..!



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

I will hereby be referring to Jorge de Bagration as Giorgi II, Prince of Mukhrani, a title which he incontestably holds. I will also refer to his son as Irakli III, Prince of Mukhrani, for the above reasons.

The Principality of Mukhrani was created in 1512 for Prince Bagrat I, the brother of King David X of Kartli, and it lasted until its annexation by Russia in 1801. Prince Irakli III is the rightful heir to the Principality of Mukhrani.

Munjuku Nguvauva II, the paramount chief of the Ovambanderu and Mbanderu tribes, died on Wednesday. He was 84. The Ovambanderu and Mbanderu tribes live in Namibia and Botswana. Munjuku Nguvauva II was born in Maun, Botswana on New Year's Day 1923. His family moved with him to Namibia in 1951, the same year he was inaugurated as Chief. He was, interestingly enough, the great-grandson of Mbanderu Chief Kahimemua Nguvauva, who was executed in 1896 for taking part in an armed rebellion against the colonial administration of German Southwest Africa. He was living in Ezorongondo village, Epukiro constituency, Omaheke Region until Monday, when he was rushed to Windhoek Central Hospital, where he died. He is survived by his wife, Aletta Karikondua Nguvauva, and his many children and grandchildren.

There are fears of a succession dispute over who the successor to Munjuku Nguvauva II as chief of the Mbanderu. One potential candidate is the Fisheries Deputy Minister of Namibia, Kilus Nguvauva, who is the late chief's son by a previous relationship. Another candidate is Keharanjo Nguvauva, Munjuku's 23-year-old son by his above-mentioned wife Aletta. Keharanjo is currently attending law school in South Africa.
