I wonder why he focused on French versus German? Interesting. Happy Friday and Hugs...RO
I think back in the day everyone who was anyone spoke French.
It was the House of Hanover right up to Queen Victoria's death, when it became the house of another German royal family, House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The named was changed to the House of Windsor (which it remains today) during World War I (seeing as Britain and Germany were now at war with each other.)
A multi-linguist you might think.
Nice hair...wig...whatever...mon dieu!
Can't teach an old dog new tricks, I guess.
Correct - French was and still is the language of diplomats.All royal households of Europe spoke French and German was also the language of the Hanovian period of England.The present Queen speaks fluent German.Colin
I believe the lineage was:1. House of Hanover2. House of Saxe-Coburg und Gotha3. House of Battenburg4. House of Windsor - changed in WW1.Colin
