Ruling House of Roumanla Has Made
Many Alliances With Women
Not of Blue Blood.
Prince Curol of Roumanla, who Is
reputed to Imve married "beneath
him," Is only carrying out the family
tradition by making a mesalliance.
The princely and elder branch of the
Hohenzollerns, to which he belongs,
has a very "mixed" pedigree, from
the point of view of a court genealo
gist, in spite of the fact that in the
male line they rank as one of the old
est families in Europe, the origin of
which is lost in the mists of ages. To
begin with, King Ferdinand's mother,
n Portuguese princess of the house of
Coburg, was the granddaughter of the
Countess Antonia of Kohary, a Hun
garian lady of great wealth, who was
raised to the rank of princess by the
emperor of Austria to marry on equal
terms Prince Ferdinand of Coburg.
Queen Victoria's uncle. One of the
king of Itoumanln's great-grandmothers
was a Murat, a relation of Napol
eon I's general, and another Stephanie
Hcauharnai's, a niece of the Empress
Josephine's lirst husband, whom Na
poleon adopted Into the imperial fam
ily. Farther back still In the iirst half
of the eighteenth century, there is in
his pedigree an untitled Englishwom
an, a mere Miss Maria Bruce, a con
nection of the then Earl of Allesbury.
