About this site

Welcome to the World of European Royals!

Thank you for visiting this site.

The banner you see here is my personal creation. It features a silver and diamond crown which belongs to the British monarchy. It is usually worn by Queen Elizabeth II during state occasions. I chose Purple as the color theme of this blog because it represents royalty.

This blog features the fascinating world of European royalty. Their charm and mystic, their prized-standing position in the society, the perplexity of the royal titles and its subtleties and how the complicated standard of royal protocol sometimes complicates their human existence.

The blog entries here are based on my research effort reading royal books, reference materials about royalty, news and magazines related to the monarchy and a regular visit to the official websites of the European royal families. 

I've always been fascinated with the history and lifestyle of the European Royalty, the magnificent horse-drawn carriages, the sparkling tiaras and jewels and the fussy titles slinking their names. So I made a strenuous research about their exalted circle to get acquainted with their mystical background. For more than 18 years now my research journey brought me closer to the intricacies of their amusing lives.

A royal subject is one of the most complicated topics to write probably because of its dimensions: the strict royal protocol, the hierarchy of their social status, the complication of its functions and the subtleties of its titles. 

My first attempt to chronicle the lives of the royals was physically draining but somehow provided me a perfect view on how to understand the royal world. Studying the background of European monarchy is such an exciting task, it is so amazing to finally uncover the secrets of their existence. 

Their glamorous and extravagant lifestyle maybe envied and the ancient rituals of prancing horses and gun carriages mesmerized the public, but their lives, run by protocol and-sometimes- dictated by traditions, are excruciatingly painful and miserable. 

It is my pleasure to share to you the things I'd learned and discovered about the amazing world of fairytale of the European royal court.

Thank you and Godbless everyone!
