Apparently, the Hohenstaufens still exist, and are now living in England.
This got me thinking. Can we find the descendants of ancient royal families and see how they're doing now? For example, there was already the Tamara research, and not only was there a New England in Crimea, but the daughter of Harold Godwinson married into the Rurikids, and that there are plenty of Anglo-Saxon settlements all over Siberia. Can we possibly track down the House of Wessex in Russia today?

You mean Tamana research?
>House of Wessex
How do we pronounce Cerdic? Is it Serdik or Kerdik? Or the ending 'c' isn't 'k'?

Yes, Tamana research. I was just going off my head.

Bernd 01/20/2020 (Mon) 17:18:07 [Preview] No.34153 del
I think with heed to Latin it would've been "Serdik" but in Old English, "Serdich".

Which Rurikid she married?
It sounds plausible, when Harold fell, some of his loyalists fled the country, a possible refuge is his daughter's (Gytha) new home in Kiev.
Btw Gytha was the mother of the wife of Hungarian king Kálmán (for a while).
And the grandmother of the wife of our king Géza II.

On the sidenote: some Scottish clans have Hungarian origins. I remembered two and I found two now:
The second page says that Bartolf, progenitor of the Leslie clan wasn't Hungarian (to be honest not a Hungarian sounding name, but quite a few German knights arrived to Hungary during the first decades of the 11th century so maybe he got "nationalized").

Ehh, while I wrote this post I found who was his daughter (I even called her by her name...) and whom she married. Ignore the leading question.

Yes, Gytha. She married into the Kievan royal family. Not to mention an entire English colony in Crimea:

>The island Britain (1) is 800 miles long, and 200 miles broad. And there are in the island five nations; English, Welsh (or British) (2), Scottish, Pictish, and Latin. The first inhabitants were the Britons, who came from Armenia

What le fug?
But that Iberia-Iberia stuff makes more and more sense.

Eh, I was logged in.

Well one of the Habsburg descendants is still doing diplomatic relations right now. He even has a twitter account and posts between Hungarian, Polish and Vatican content. And a bunch of more things in between


His brother is a professional race car driver IIRC

Huh, I forgot Christopher Tolkien just died.

To be fair, Otto von Habsburg was the heir, and he did a lot of stuff after WWI and even WWII. Habsburgs are relatively recent compared to what I'm talking about in the OP, the Hohenstaufens have been extinct since the 1300s.
