I live in a country where Rojal titles and Emperors were in the past. I remember how I had to learn all of them when I used to study at school and that was really tricky. The last Emperor Nicholas The Second was dethroned in 1917 when revolution occurred. Now we have only president and premier minister.
I have my mum whose sister (my aunt) has two children, my cousins. My father’s sister has her stepdaughter, my stepsister.

In my country there is no royal family we had a royal family about 40 years ago, people still remember them and pray for them because after they leave the country the situation change and we started to regress. we lost everything after they leave :our culture , our welfare, our credit, our wealth now our young generation pray for the royal family they wish they return and save our country .

Hello everyone, my country doesn't have a king or queen. In history, the last king was dethroned in 1945. About my family, my father has seven siblings and my mother has eleven siblings, so I have many uncles and aunts and cousins. It's so complicated, but I love them.


The German and the English language have the same roots so the concept of describing family relations are the same.
The last royal person we learned was Wilhelm II which reign ended after world war 1. Since then we are a democracy without any royals.

We had to learn presidents and chancellors in the German history. The people who have taught us them always said they prepare for life but I've never needed this information and therefore forgotten a lot about it.


There was a king Nicholas II in my country a hundred and one years ago but in that time the revolution happened and he with his family were killed. At school we should have been studying the names of kings/queens and dates of their rules.

Hi ,
In my country we don´t have royal Family officially , but our governor , deputy and senador spent our Money from tax living a life like a royal Family , a lot of luxury living in mansion , luxury cars .

Yes I live in England so we have the British Royal Family,

We had a Imperial family during many time. We were a Portugal colony until 1822. Then, our prince Dom Pedro proclaimed independence. We had two emperors, dom Pedro I and his son Dom Pedro II until the proclamation of republic in 1899. We have to study many details since Brazil-colony until present days.

We don't have royal family in of Brazil but of the start our nations the family real of portugal had the government state. Today the leader our govern is president. We have diversity problems but I believe in Brazil.
