"Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith".Yet as the Queen prepares for another state visit to Germany, idle minds again turn to questions about the connections between our two countries, and not least the Teutonic heritage of the Royal Family.It is worth pausing to note that, until recently, members of the Royal Family had no surname.They customarily used first names and the name of their house, which was inherited from the father (Richard the Lionheart was a Plantagenet, Henry VIII was a Tudor, George I was a Hanover). When World War One bred increasing anti-German sentiment in Britain, astute observers noted that Kaiser Bill was Queen Victoria’s grandson and our King George V’s first cousin.After researching the idea, Ohler realized that the truth could be more fascinating than fiction.In the late 1930s, a Berlin-based pharmaceutical company called Temmler began selling methamphetamine tablets under the brand name Pervitin.The obvious place to start is the family tree, although unfolding it is enough to make even the most seasoned genealogist reach for a stiff drink.

The Royal Family still opens its presents on Christmas Eve, following the German tradition, which Prince Albert was particularly keen on following.This caused a thorny problem because her 50 (or thereabouts) closest suitable relatives were all Catholic, so distinctly non grata.They were passed over, and in the end Georg Ludwig, the Protestant Prince Elector of Hanover, got the job, and our royal house changed from Stuart to Brunswick-Lūneburg-Hanover, bringing with it a wealth of connections to the ancient royal houses of Welf and Este.It is, in fact, worth remembering that the word “English” is derived from the Angles, of Anglo-Saxon fame.When the Romans cleared out of Britain in AD 410, a range of German, Danish, and Dutch tribes that we sloppily call the Anglo-Saxons moved in from across the Whale Road.
