Royal families in Germany

The first King of Belgium was Leopold I. He came from the family
'Saxe-Coburg and Gotha'. Many European Royal Families are linked to this House.
So, I started to interest me in the history of German Royal - and noble families.
If you have suggestions, tips or comments feel free to post them!

Der erste König von Belgien war Leopold I. Er stammte aus der Familie
'Sachsen Coburg und Gotha'.Viele Europaïsche Königshäuser sind zu dieser
Dynastie verbunden. So fing ich an, mich in der Geschichte der
Deutschen Königlichen- und Adelsfamilien zu interessieren.

Wenn Sie Anregungen oder Tipps haben, zögern Sie nicht, mich zu kontaktieren.
