I used to dream about the Duke of Windsor  very odd.

When I really woke up I was kind of relieved to find no posts on it from me at all. Like most British people, according to statistical surveys, I dream about the Queen now and then, in fact I did so a couple of nights ago. It's rare, though.

Brennus, although in theory feudally subject to the Kings of France, for centuries Britanny functioned as an effectively sovereign nation. This obviously was not at all to the liking of the Kings, and when the Duchy fell to an heiress, Anne of Brittany, it was insisted that she marry Charles VIII then, when he died and they had no surviving children, his cousin and heir Louis XII. They had only daughters, but no problem as the eldest married his cousin and heir Francis I.

Representation of the Dukes of Brittany passed out of the French royal line with the death childless of Henri III (it now rests with the Duke of Bavaria), but by then Brittany had been thoroughly incorporated into France and the title Duke of Brittany, at first held by the King as a subsidiary title like King of Navarre later (and earlier), had become like a normal French peerage title. There is no such long history of independence in Cornwall, it was to all intents a part of England long before the Conquest, and very little is known of its history as an independent region. Cornish separatists are (ahem!) dreaming, I'm afraid.

PS Brittany was for a time under indirect English rule, as for that period Brittany was feudally subject to the Duke of Normandy, who was of course the King of the English (as the title still was), rather than to the King of France directly. This was in the time of Henry II and his sons Richard I and John, and the Dukes were English princes, first Geoffrey, third son of Henry II, then his son Arthur, whom John murdered, or so we believe.

When John carelessly mislaid Normandy, Anjou, Maine, Touraine, Poitou and probably a few other places besides, he lost the overlordship of Brittany too. So there is little basis for Brittany becoming a Dominion of the British Crown, that was just one of those dream-things.


Thank You Peter.  As I said, I have no idea why that was part of the dream because, as I said, dreams are silly. Maybe is was my subconscious chewing on some report I half read somewhere about an EU "Channel District?" Again, I don't give any importance to these dreams. They are for entertainment. 

Now, for entertainment value, perhaps you will tell us the inappropriate thing you typed in your dream? (Or private message me if it was anything insulting about my post. Then I could fly to England and we could have a sword fight or something.)

My father's mother's father's last name was Curnow (which is Cornish for Conwall) but they always regarded themselves as English and I never heard of this Cornish independence stuff until a year or so ago. I'm sure it's Mr. Blair's fault.

I have not the least recollection of what it was. I don't think I ever knew, even in the dream. I was just very worried about it. Dreams are like that.

Sorry about the boring exposition but you know me, it doesn't take much to set me off.

I'm like that also, but with other subjects.

I had another royal dream, although much more odd. There were lions or some sort of wild cat like that--and a city. I do not know where that part came from, but I dreamed of Nicholas II. I dreamed I heard him condemned to die. "Nicholas Alexandrovitch you have been condemned to die, and will now be shot." Like in the following YouTube video:



I am not sure if I saw the Romanovs shot or if I was one who was shot. It was an odd dream that was all over the place, that is if it was the same dream. Like I said my dreams make little sense.

Still, it was nice to have another royal dream

Wow. That video really did have a lot of blood and shooting. Very sad. That does sound like a strange dream.

Yes, very sad. I like that video though. I am trying to find the movies it captures. Which films are those? It looks like at least two, one in Russian or some other language I assume, given the subtitles.

This one is absolutely beautiful.  It doesn't show the actual scene, just the Romanovs making the sign of the cross.

I have a dream, too, but a very eerie and terrifying one - about the Romanovs, but the one when Anastasia and Alexei tried in vain to escape the execution, but out of luck, when they collapsed on the floor of a Orthodox church as rotting skeletal remains after creeping out of their coffins during the procession of the remembrance Mass for the Romanov family. Very weird and frightening one. I told my mother about this dream, it was sometime before the Grand Duchess and Tsarevich's remains were found in 2007. Maybe it was a premonition?  [confused]  I'm interested in decoding the meaning of this dream someday as a future researcher of royal history and historian. 


And by the way, it will be discussed in a separate new thread that I will be starting here in Off-topic Social - the topic of reincarnation of royalty/aristocracy/confidantes, court officials, and servants of royalty. Reincarnation is an another fascinating topic for me as a history buff, and I would like to hear and read about your reactions or replies to this topic.

I once dreamt that I was a Royalist present at a battle in the English Civil War; His Majesty was commanding his own forces, suffered a massive defeat, and was captured attempting to escape in his carriage.
