The House of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick Being a Legal Successor to Numerous States of the Goths’ Empire. 


  • DNA Match of the Royal Capetian Line of Nott-Brunswick


Today the most reputed family of successors of the House of the Amalings (leading dynasty of the Goths), the Royal House of the Ostrogoths of Italy, is most widely known as the Billungs. This house will be demonstrated in addition to a few other kindred houses which have held and continue to hold these estates. The primogeniture family successors of these Gothian houses is demonstrated herein. It is a long established fact of history as being realized in the House of Este-Guelph (head Dynastic Branch being Princes of Wolfenbuettel). The genealogy of the Billung’s successors are found below.

In 1137, control of Saxony passed to the Guelph dynasty, descendants of Wulfhild Billung, eldest daughter of the last Billung Duke, Emperor Lothar III of Supplinburg. Which passed to his Imperial successor Henry the Proud, to Henry the Lion of Brunswick, and his son Emperor Otto IV of Brunswick. Brunswick is Europe’s oldest living Royal (and Imperial) House in international law (though de jure and exiled, Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel is valid in international prescriptive law).

Hermannus Billung of Saxony is a direct male successor of Hengist, Witukind and Gauti.

From the time of Hengist, of Saxony, King of Kent, his son Aesc was King of Kent, and so was his son, Ochta, and his son Eormenric, and his son Saint Ethelbert I, and his son Aethelbert, and his son Eadbald, and his son Eormenred of Saxony all were kings of Kent England. He had a son son Aethelberht who remained a Lord in Saxony, and his son also a Graf in Saxony, was Billung von Wenden, according to one account. In other accounts Aethelbert II was King of Kent sons returned to Saxony, known as Billings(Billungs) of Saxony. Most genealogies go back at least to “Brunhart Billung I. von Stubenskorn Graf in Sachsen”, Count of Thuringa was son Aethelbert. The brother of this Bruno I was Amelung I Billung, (whose lines are documented a ways down to the year 1137 when they went extinct and their last female heir married the d’Este-Guelph male heir (of Brunswick). Another branch of the Billings controlled Northmark, under Wichman the Elder. Our main branch of Billungs controlled the Northern Billunger March. Combined these were a vast area. Amelung I fathered Bennid I Billung, who fathered Amelung II Billung, who fathered Amelung III Billung who failed to produce heirs in the 9th century. The line then continued via Bruno, as below, until Henry Leo (the Lion) of Brunswick, and to his son Emperor Otto IV von Brunswick, and the living legal successors today.

The Brunswick Welfen coat of arms (around 1200) from the tomb of Welfs VI. and Welfs VII. in St. Johannes Baptist (Steingaden); originally: blue lion on a gold background (today in the Bavarian National Museum, Munich). The Helmzier, two buffalo horns decorated with peacock feathers, has been handed down to the Welfen in Braunschweig since 1290, and they will later become today’s sickles. The coat of arms of the gentlemen of Ravensburg (Beienburg) in the Zurich coat of arms, who were in the service of the Welf Henry the Lion, shows both the lion (standing) and the buffalo horns decorated with peacock feathers.

Below are the main alloids (the hereditary estates) listed as their genealogical inheritance down to the main lines today in Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel. It is shown together with the Gottingen principality passing down (including Saxony through Henry the Lion etc).

(Note: 1. Gottingen was spelled Swedish Gutingi in the oldest documents. 2. The Gottingen alloid being from Woden-born Emperor Witekind (Saxony Dynasty) to his wife Geva, the daughter of King Gotterick of Denmark, King of the primary realm called Gothia at that time in Scandinavia.)

On the Brunoid line you can see how it went to Brunswick’s ancestor Emperor Lothaire, and the family’s other Saxon Emperors.

Brunoids were also Dukes of Frisia. Their realm of that time (around 900AD) were all using Runes on their coinage, of the older Elder Futhark version. Here is one coin of that period:

When the House of Brunswick was most notably using the title “prince of Gutingi/Göttingen” it was between the reigns of two Brunswick Emperors, that of Otto IV and Emperor Friedrich I von Brunswick[official HRE Emperors. As descendants of the Saxon Emperors the house had highest rights as Este-Guelph. As was at the beginning of the Guelph Ghibbline wars, Templar vs Hospitaller].

The line listed in several encyclopedias shows Witukind, King of Saxony married Geva, the daughter of King Gotterick (of Denmark-Sweden vaster-Gotland). The Scandinavian land over which he was King over was called Gothia. It was understood the Saxony house dowery included a land med after the Kingdom, in Saxony itself called Gottingen. This root line of Gottingen-Brunswick birthed several generations of Emperors of Germany which were also crowned Holy Roman Emperors, ruling as chief dukes of the House of Brunswick (including official heads of the realms of Eastphalia, Westphalia, East Friesland, Sicily, several Italian principalities, French Estates, Duchy of Bavaria, Duchy of Pomerania, in those times) which has continued in more continued successions maintained than any other house today.

The House of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick descends of both these lines. Also descends from several other Imperial Dynasties as the only successor, as claimed and maintained in international law in every generation.

While Gottingen had long been an alloidial possession and capital for the house, the estate name of “prince of Göttingen” came to be only at this period, in honor of our Ottonian Emperor ancestors who kept their Imperial court there. These were largely of the Saxon-Billung-Gothian house.

The principality of Northeim was sometimes called the same as “Gottingen”, although recent scholars normally differentiate these as two. The region was also called “Saxony on the Weser” just before it was united with the Emperor Lothair and given to his son-in-law Henry the Proud.

The “agnates”[bloodline descendants] thenceforth have continued to use the title, maintaining the right of this estate of the Gutingi Imperial palace. The state still legally is a principality today, though only in de jure government-in-exile. All legitimate Brunswick descendants are born with the title of “a prince of Göttingen”, and only the head duke of Brunswick bears the title “The prince of Göttingen”. As heir of the largest portions of the Billung Saxony inheritance, it the Göttingen Imperial palace of numerous Emperors made the fitting alloid for Brunswick for most of the time, for the House.

The Coat of arms for the Principality of Göttingen is the House of Brunswick main coat of arms, as below:

(Note the Wolfenbuettel last de jure version of the flag it was with white and blue, not with gold. The gold however has been used anciently and interchangeably.)

The capital for the Brunswick Monarchy has primarily been Göttingen, it at other times was a subordinate secondary capital of some of the smaller estates under the larger Brunswick Monarchy. Strategically Brunswick city was capital for a time, and also the principality of Wolfenbuettel was a more convenient capital for the Greater Brunswick-Luneburg some time. Most subordinate principalities for the last 400 years acknowledged their subordinance writing their state names as Wolfenbuettel-Luneburg [for example] which was another principality of the many subordinate principalities to the Wolfenbuettel line of the chief senior branch of the house who reigned over all as Absolute Monarchs, which by definition was also a micro Empire itself, and has remained so today.

The Imperial crowns go much wider that one may read about, from Italy to Russia, to the last reigning Piasts, though those have all gone legally extinct as houses. Yet all we can say as far as our ancient and living house may always demonstrate, all sprung from this central Gutingi / Gothian heritage. Numerous other co-Tribal Kingdoms abound of which we are reuniting with today!

Many lines of the French high royal heritage of Henry the Lion go back to the Goths. One of these being the line of the Guelphs, which descend from a senior parent of Charlemagne. One of the highest perhaps is the line of Argotta, mother of all French Kings. It is officially part of the French history and so we include it in it’s own separate chapter, later on.

The Visigothic Name, Territory, and Dynasty remains in the titles of the Nobility of France. The peerage of France (highest ranking equal princes) have several hereditary princes of this realm, using the claim as the larger Province called “Languedoc”. Read the booklet by Jean Lafitte and article entitled “Languedoc, déformation de *Land Goth ?”. Dynastically it is also demonstratably preserved (as I give a taste below). The Visigothic family succession was preserved from the original Balti Dynasty via the Visigothic Princess Brunhilda, Grandmother of Pepin (and other Visigothic Nobles), thus transferring the rights to the Franks, later to the Dynastic descendants known as Counts of Toulouse and Princes of Gothia for an additional 800 years. The original Gothia (Visigoth) land realm remains in the name “Langeudoc” (Land of the Goths / Langue de Goth), according to numerous authentic records, encyclopedias, etc. Today you also can look it up on any map. Whether they call their territory Langeudoc or Gothia makes no difference, as all agree it is the same place, same tribe, and just a different spelling. It was continued legally through the female Visigoth Genealogy, also as a title “Gothia”, and later the same region colloquially as Languedoc. For most of the generations it remained within the government of the Toulouse Nobility. It then passed to their heir Philip III who was of the earlier Capetian Dynasty, and down through all the French Kings till today. We know the House of Bourbon, Cadet branch of the Capetian dynasty has held the original grants with the name “Gothia” as per the general history books (one as attached in the graphic). The original territory reached the French Kings by first passing from the Visigothic Princess Brunhilda. She passed it to her heirs, and to the Merovingian King Pepin, see: https://gw.geneanet.org/belfast8?lang=en&p=brunhilda+of+toledo&n=germany . As in the attached image, the whole of Gothia passed rightfully(legally) Dynastically down from Bernard I to his heirs, down to this present day all concretely. Not only the Kings protected all such titles of the province, the dukes and counts also never not ever renounced this legal entity known as Languedoc nor disbanded it in any way. Their claims of this illustrious decent or renounce any rights to this entity. This was all long settled. Things only became a little shaky with the Napoleanic usurpation during the French Revolution. The Brunswick Manifesto was to restore the French King to all his rightful titles, of which Napoleon refused. Therefore Brunswick made good on all promises, as commander-in-chief over all Prussia, commander-in-chief over all Austria and commander-in-chief (in war time) of de jure France(as granted by the rightful King of France giving Brunswick the additional authority in France). Note that Brunswick also has the living title Prince of Gottingen (Gothia) as a Dynastic inheritance, which remains a sub-principality under the duchy of Brunswick and Lunenburg, with this same Prince ranking higher (during war time) than all three Emperors. This begun the war for the French King to be restored under all original rightful titles.


What a great legacy the Goths have inherited from Raymond IV, the most powerful leader of the First Crusade. 
He was blood successor of the Royal House of Gothia as “Princeps Gothiæ”, and as Count of Toulouse, Duke of Narbonne and Margrave of Provence. However, the title “Prince of Gothia” was held more prominently by his father and grandfather, as well as his great great grandparents for many generations. 

Upon his victory liberating Jerusalem and the Byzantines,
Raymond was offered the crown of the new Kingdom of Jerusalem. However he refused, as he was reluctant to rule in the city in which Jesus had suffered. He said that he shuddered to think of being called “King of Jerusalem”. It is also likely that he wished to continue the siege of Tripoli rather than remain in Jerusalem. However, he was also reluctant to give up the Tower of David in Jerusalem, which he had taken after the fall of the city, and it was only with difficulty that Godfrey of Bouillon was able to take it from him.

Raymond participated in the battle of Ascalon soon after the capture of Jerusalem, during which an invading army from Egypt was defeated. However, Raymond wanted to occupy Ascalon himself rather than give it to Godfrey, and in the resulting dispute Ascalon remained unoccupied. It was not taken by the crusaders until 1153. Godfrey also blamed him for the failure of his army to capture Arsuf. When Raymond went north, in the winter of 1099–1100, his first act was one of hostility against Bohemond, capturing Laodicea from Bohemond, returning it to the Byzantines.



These Royal lines of Visigoths and Ostrogoths (Balti and Amali Dynasties) were again refreshed in Duke Otto IV of Brunswick, who was crowned Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire under both the Brunswick and Aquitaine French Coats of Arms through his mother’s side (Matilda). Both sides of her mother’s family held rival claims to succession of the duchy of Toulouse(Gothia). This coat of arms of France and England remains in Brunswick today. For most branches of Brunswick it is used as the oldest version with two lions and sometimes with one lion. Though some branches, including for a time Otto IV used the three lions version.

It should be noted that not only was his mother a rival successor of Toulouse Gothia, but also a successor of the early founder of the House of the Templars (Angevin / Anjou). For a short period Otto IV was heir apparent to the founding house of the Templar, the Angevin (Anjou) Nobility of France. While today none of the French heirs remain known of this family, all except for Brunswick. However the House of Brunswick does but rarely remind France of those rights. One to memory was invoked in the time of the war with Napoleon. However as commander-in-chief of Prussian, Austrian and Brunswick allied armies, there was only offer of assisting the true French King against the violent socialism of the French Revolution. The offer mainly was to protect His Highness from the abuses etc, as any valid and fair sovereign should offer. This offer again was extended to Napoleon III by a treaty to assist Brunswick with reclaiming all German lands under one Empire.

This Angevin and Toulouse (Visigothic) Templar came in part through Henry the Lion’s wife Matilda. However much more of it came through Henry’s own succession of the house of the Billungs(Ostrogoths).

As mother of Emperor Otto IV we recognize he, and the rest of his brothers were heirs of Angevin(Anjou), Aquitaine and all of France. So many Gothian claims were rekindled in Otto IV that his successors made it into law to use the title Prince of Gottingen/Gutingi. This additional French branch from his maternal inheritance, compounded these much further beyond the genealogical claims of the Amelung Billings, and the Guelphic line to Argotta and the most widely esteemed House of the Gothian Emperors.


The Frankish Kings absorbed and took over a major Gothian title for the part of France now known today as Langudoc. Many know prince Raymond IV of Gothia and Toulouse led the biggest armies of the 1st Crusade (and that he was equal peer of the King of France). Ever since the Frankish prince Alberici married Argotta, the daughter of Theodemir Amalaus King of Gothia, the sister of Theodoric Amali King of Gothia & Italy, and had a son Duke VAUBERTUS (or Wambertus) the title stuck and is in the official histories. Thus making him not only Heir of Gothia via his mother, but also the Grandson of the Sicambrian-Ukrainian descended Davidic King Pharamond on his father’s side (an established link in old Gothia Crimea where they still use the Gothic runes in their liturgy, it’s more similar to Greek letters). It’s also indisputed that the next in succession Gothian son Arnoldus founded the line of which Charlemagne is descended. The Guelphs (Brunswick House) is descended from the Grandaughter of Arnoldus, Princess Gertrude.

Genealogies, as they relate to these official matters of sovereignty of many nations, have been guarded as some of the most reliable information ever to exist. Allied nations guaranteed this integrity in wars to protect such rights of genealogical succession etc. Today we have some international law that still protects our governments in exile, coupled with several international treaties. The genealogies can be taken as some of the most accurate information there is. Christ’s genealogy also is one example where the records are available and have been used to prove a point. Now we should as well as it relates to Christian property, and being a good steward of what He has given. Anderson’s Genealogies, published in 1732 are widely agreed as absolute. As published below, we find the line reiterated the line of Argotta from the Ostrogothic Kings, and her marriage to Alberici, a prince of the Franks. The “Mother of all French Kings” being Argotta, we have even in the name itself quite the trove of proof for a Godly succession. The House of Brunswick ( Guelphs ) being of this early root.

The ‘elder-branch’ Successors continually Emperors of states across the continent with continued Military rank higher than Emperor as Commander-in-Chief of Prussia, Austria, Poland, France, Senior branch over Hanover etc. Cont’d claim of estates linked with the “greater domains”.



This topic can’t be left without mentioning not only the titles of Gothian Prince, but also of the numerous alloidial blood inheritance of Imperial estates of the last Emperors of several of the ancient lines that passed to this house.

So many alloidial Imperial families’ estates passed to the only male heirs (Brunswick d’Este-Guelph). This is further witness of this being a great Divine gift as we call always,  “by the Grace of God”. At this same time that the Royal Dynasty of the House of the Goths was successfully transmitted and inheritance by the House of Brunswick in Henry the Lion d’Este-Guelph, was the time of Imperial successions. These successions not only were from this period from 900AD through to 1200’s with Emperor Otto IV of Brunswick, but it continued much further on.

In 1400AD the Wolfenbuettel-Brunswick Duke Frederick was elected Emperor,

In the 1600s the last bloodline of the Piasts continued with the Brunswicks,

In the mid 1700’s another Wolfenbuettel-Brunswick Duke Ivan VI became Emperor of all Russia.

There were already so many Imperial lines (none of which the Hapsburg or Prussian families can claim, as their blood were only Counts, of newer houses). However the parents and Grandparents of Henry the Lion who were Emperors and they passed the blood rights of the Empire to this line, above all others.

While already the line was entitled to the highest Kingdoms (ie original greater Saxony, the duchy since the time of Henry the Lion and the ancient Kings of Saxony), it often was withheld by de facto Emperors. Emperor Lothar III (sometimes called Lothar II) of Supplingenburg granted the then head of the House of (d’Este-Guelph), Henry the Proud the full succession credentials to be the Emperor. Henry’s Imperial rule 1137-38 was “from sea to sea, from Denmark to Sicily”, as his Bishop Otto von Feising had boasted.

Emperor Lothar’s ediction of Henry’s succession also expanded his territories, and it included the transmission of the Imperial insignia (Reichskleinodien).

This succession had for decades been understood, and were terms of the entire rule of Lothar, for support from the several provincial dukes of Saxony. It’s traced that this support even from his election till his death, had only been secured by marriage of the Emperor’s only daughter to Henry’s son. The Emperor Lothar had his only child, Gertrude, married to the son of Henry the Black’s son Henry the Proud. Without this marriage his own Imperial succession would not had been recognized by the numerous Dukes of the domains of Henry.

From long before that time, up until today, the House of Brunswick has remained a the oldest living and most senior Imperial house of Germany(incl. beyond German borders), with an equal right to be elected to the throne of Emperor. This is of the original Reich of Charlemagne, under it’s laws which required unbiased voting for an Emperor that only holds that rank during war time. Afterwards is to go back as an equal prince. This mode was how Brunswick continued to operate, and was still often called to be commander-in-chief at times of great wars. The original order had been long usruped by the likes of the Hapsburgs and Prussians. From the inception of such illegal actions it has been met in the fields of battle and has continued even to this day, as shown in the existing treaty of Ham that the current head of House has rights to claim to exercise a right as Emperor of all German lands. The rights to all these estates have continued long since the Guelph and Ghibelline wars/rivalries, and the original stealing of 90% of the estate known as the Duchy of Saxony, of which is still contended for (from Eastphalia to Westphalia etc as the True Saxony borders) and is in the main coat of arms of the house (the coat of arms of the last King of Saxony). For much of the time this senior house has had wars with the current usurpers, Habsburg who have not done true valid elections, where all princes would have an equal chance to be Emperor. So the senior branch of (Wolfenbuettel)Brunswick refused to be electors, unlike the junior branch of (Hanover)Brunswick. Wolfenbuettel-Brunswick maintained seniority in the general college of princes. None of the college of princes nor the electors of the time would recognize Hanover’s illegal creation as a new elector(just to make more votes for Hapsburg, their only supporter). For much of the time till the destructions of Napoleon, the Brunswick’s held title of “Commander-in-Chief” over the entire Empire, a rank higher than the Kaiser in time of war. Multiple dukes held this title also during the war with Napoleon, as in previous centuries over the larger bodies of the Germanic nations. So in practice still the claim had remained somewhat recognized.

The Angevin territories (Britain, France and Jerusalem) were also inherited by the House of Brunswick, although has been in a rival dispute ongoing with the Capets. Several of the alloids of the House of Brunswick continue in the house as being older than the Carolingian Empire itself, still ongoing in a chief Imperial bloodline.

Brunswick-Gottingen (named after the Saxon King Witukind’s Danish wife and her line of Gothia Denmark-Sweden) was the allodial capital for the older Saxon Emperors of which the dukes of Brunswick descend. The transmission of the Imperial mantle continued from one Saxony duke to the next, Otto IV of Brunswick. Henry the Lion’s son, Otto IV von Brunswick also wore the Imperial insignia that was originally belonging to the house, when he was officially crowned Emperor, and recognized worldwide. There was one condition from the pope, that he would not retake the family’s possessions of Sicily. He broke that promise and for that reason was excommunicated, however the family from that day, till today has never abdicated this right and title of right to be Emperor, nor the titles that are most foundational of the Empire, as Europe’s oldest and most senior living Royal family (in legal international and prescriptive law).



Today (till 1972) the ruling house of the Danes (House of Glucksburg) have used the title King of the Goths.

This naming of Gothia goes back to ancient times. The whole area there, Denmark and Southern Sweden has all been called Gothia. It also had a breakdown of it’s own Ostrogothia and Westrogothia, etc. While those borders often changed, it was still understood that the region’s overall name was Gothia (and many historians wrote Geats, comparing them with Samogetia, and those tribes around Latvia and going down into the Billunger lands Westerward to around Luneburg).

The line of Brunswick goes back to Wulhild of Saxony, the daughter of Olaf II, King of Norway. Her mother was of the Royal House of Gothia. A chart has been put together as follows:


Yngling Dynasty (Emperors/Kings of Scandinavian Gothenland)
Froda or Frey called Yngve
Gotharus Ottar Vendelkråka
Erik VIII the Victorius, King of Sweden

+Sigrid, Queen of all Gothenland, dau of Viking Skoglar Tosti (and Mother of Knut the Great)

Olaus Skötkonung

King of Gothia

Astrid Olofsdotter, Princess of Gothia

+ King Olaf II Harldsson of Norway Rex Perpetuus Norvegiae

Emperor Henry the Proud of Brunswick, Ruled the Baltic to Sicily
Emperor Otto IV, Duke of Brunswick, King of Germany, Crowned Holy Roman Emperor
Otto the Child, successor of Brunswick, in Denmark was made count of Garding and Thetesbüll in Schleswig Holstein as a Danish prince through his mother Helena Regent, princess and duchess + Ascanian Mechtild/Matilda of Brandenburg Ascanian Billunger Saxony
Emperor Frederick I Duke of Wolfenbüttel-Brunswick, Crowned King of Germany, Holy Roman Emperor
Wolfenbüttel Mini-Emperors. The ‘elder-branch’ Successors continually Emperors of states across the continent with continued Military rank higher than Emperor as Commander-in-Chief of Prussia, Austria, Poland, France, Senior branch over Hanover etc. Cont’d claim of estates linked with the “greater domains”.


Arguably one of the oldest, yet one of the most recent in utilizing the title “Prince of Gothia” has been in the Crimea. It should be noted that the Guelphs have long maintained Noble representatives at the court of Gothia at Caffa. This was through the periods Caffa was part of the colonies of Genoa, the Gulephic republic.

The Guelph heraldic cross being a Red Cross on a white background was not only the arms of Genoa, but it can be found on the civic arms of traditionally Guelph towns like Milan, Vercelli, Alessandria, Padua, Reggio and Bologna.
Some individuals and families indicated their faction affiliation in their coats of arms by including an appropriate chief: Guelphs had a capo d’Angio or “chief of Anjou”, gold fleurs-de-lys on a blue field, with a red heraldic “label”

The city shields are is a witness of the history of the past struggles between the Guelph (Templar) and the Ghibelline (Hospitaller) aligned cities. Each having the reverse shield of the cross. These two warring Imperial factions were arch rivals for the Imperial throne of the Holy Roman Empire.

While various popes declared nearly a dozen crusades against the Turks, especially at Caffa Crimea, very few heeded the call. In the book “The Colonies of Genoa in the Black Sea Region”, by Khvalkov, page 225, it says that at the Bishopric of Caffa, Gothia, that the Guelphs were considered Nobles and maintained a Noble representative of Guelph there in Crimea, but for Ghibelline(or other Venetian) he doesn’t mention them as Noble representatives.

Today the junior cadet branches of Este have a dominance in this area of Italy. However the senior branch of Este Guelph is Brunswick Wolfenbuettel. This has remained a perpetual claim of the house, recognized by all parties.

This same house had filed petitions to the Russian and Ukrainian Embassy for a peace agreement before too much bloodshed issued during Kiev’s maidan and nationalist protests from 2013-2014. The original peace proposal included terms of placing Crimea under control of the House of Nott-Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel. In the document the main claim of Ukrainian suffrage rights were in the fact that the Nott side of the family has several lines to the original founding house of the Kiev Rus Nobility. One of those lines was documented in the correspondence.

The House of Brunswick also remains tied with the successions of the Prince Bishops of Crimean Gothia. This includes the present Archbishop of Gothia at Crimea and their several dioceses.

+ Ambrose von Sievers, of the Metropolitanate of Gothia is a Bishop of the True Orthodox Church (Russian Catacomb Church). It is the successive church that has escaped the persecutions of the Bolsheviks and their successive agents. His church is considered in some circles as non-canonical because of it’s refusal to submit to the KGB installed church. As the escaped Andrewite Bishop did canonically consecrate +Ambrose, it is believed therefore the church of the Goths is truly canonical unlike many other jurisdictions. However, the persecutions have continued, as the Clergy have been attacked and killed over the last two generations.

Emperor Ivan VI von Wolfenbüttel-Brunswick, Tsar of Russia, sole heir son of the Ivan V (senior) branch of the Romanov’s, competing with the cadet branch descended of Peter I, the French paid coup, usurped the house in violation of the house primogeniture law and the succession law of Peter I, that the Monarch designates the Heir who will succeed.

and rightful heir at law, by official law of Russia. Remained Austrian field-marshal, Protestant Generalfeldzeugmeister of the Holy

Roman Empire, Commander-in-Chief of Wolfenbüttel, the Regent and Commander-in-Chief of the Netherlands at ‘s-Hertogenbosch, protector of 3 generations of Monarchs at the Hague, unifying the “Groot Nederland” provinces, Noord Brabant etc.

Brunswick remained peer of Russia. co-protections remained with all Russian Monarchs. According to the primogeniture succession law 1797 re-established by Paul I of Russia, the Senior house of Wolfenbüttel-Brunswick are rightful heirs in Russian (and Dynastic, and international) law…

By numerous guarantees of Russian law, Russian Dynastic law, and Brunswick Dynastic law, and intl. treaties, these Russian estate titles of Romanov-Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick passed to the head duke of Brunswick in 1764. Charles I of Brunswick had multiple sons fighting against the illegal Russian regime in the wars that followed the murder of de jure and de facto Emperor Ivan VI von Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick in 1764.

The last reigning de facto and de jure duke of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick Charles II, was Nephew of the reigning Tsar of Russia. In multiple edicts placed death penalties on those who sought to divide his primogeniture hereditary estates, including those outside of mainland Europe.

de jure princes of Wolfenbuttel Brunswick (from Ulric de Civry Wolfenbuttel forwards) include the cadet branch of the natural family that were not divorced from the natural family in edicts of Charles II.



The Piast successor lines of Brunswick culminated also in the Royalty of Hungary who were the house of Angevin. The then successive rulers had claims in the realms of Transylvania, Wallachia, Moldova, and other original alloids of the Goth Nobility.

A senior Polish prince Vladislaus II had become King of Bohemia, and after having succeeded Matthias Corvinus in 1490, he also reigned as King of Hungary. Although King of Hungary, still Silesia and Moravia was retained in the hands and titles of the Corvinus family.

This line of Piasts, descendant of the Polish, Hungarian and Angevin Imperial lines, had passed down the succession of the house with the successors of Munsterberg, in Wurtemberg-Oels for Centuries. Finally when that (Württemberg) male line became extinct in 1792, it went as per the original Piast House law, that the Piast inheritance can pass by choice, and by female branches. So it passed to the last daughter and heiress Sophia Frederica Charlotte, to her husband, who upon his death passed it to his Heir, Duke Frederick William of Brunswick, from whence has continually been in the House of Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel which do this day maintains a valid status in international law as a de jure principality of the Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel-Oels government in exile.

This Silesian (and Griffin) Piast family name of Oels and coat of arms are continually used by the House of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick, as the chief bloodline heirs of this branch. The heirship continued although there have been many occupations, including by Prussia. The occupations and usurpations have always been met with the strong legal protests, affirming the estates remain for the heirs pursuant to public, dynastic house law, treaty and international law.

The most Piast bloodlines, more than any other house culminated in the House of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick. The only blood heir, and also the last Piast alloid principality in possession of any other monarch is known as “Oelsnica” (also the last residence of the sovereign Prussian Kaiser, during the occupation of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick). It is retained with perpetual claim, and is used in the family name and coat of arms. Therefore several de jure sovereignty rights are preserved for Poland’s oldest Royal House and domains. The House of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick (and by the House of Saxony) continues to maintain these basic requirements in international law.

One Piast line that founded the present bloodline of the House of Wolfenbuttel-Brunswick more here:

At a ceremony held by the Orthodox Church Western Rite Metropolia at Berlin, Stephen d’Guelph Brunswick was anointed as a titular King of the Goths(only one of many local Gothia jurisdictions), as an Emperor Elect, and as a Prince-Elector (an equal Elector on the Gothian Empire) high prince of his local jurisdiction (Benelux), at the formation and constitution signing for the re-founding of this order. http://gothiantemplar.blogspot.nl.

Other jurisdictions of the Goths also have (as demonstrated) their own Kings of Goths at their local region. As Electors these titles may vary but are typically “Prince-Elector” and may hold dual local titles. In this case as a Brunswick heir of the local jurisdiction which included Burgundian Goths, this title was most appropriately granted and put into the founding charter documents co-signed by six other Imperial Electors. The rank of Emperor can only become effective when there are twelve aethelings electing him (voting) for his rotation. This is the ancient way.

Heirs of other Gothian States who can claim some form of de facto or de jure inheritance are also welcome to join our wider tribal order. The traditional and cultural representation of our Gothian States is in vital need of rekindling. The cultural representation in Brunswick, spanning more than 1,000 years is one valuable aspect of our order. The states include regions anywhere in the world where there is some kinship to the tribes of the Goths. As Brunswick has held a flag in most corners of the earth, including Australia, Canada, South Africa, etc, the tribe’s representation may be lacking. This ceremonial order for the local region may help booster morale and encourage more development of our cultural Christian civilization. The working together and having our own system and economy is important for our future success as a smaller tribal people.

The Templar of Gothia jurisdictions was then founded as an independent Order. Each Imperial Elector was automatically made a Grand Commander of their local jurisdiction. Gothia jurisdiction is not required to join the Templar but it is one of many options. Such as the Brunswick Order of Templar Portugal’s order etc. If it’s not with a Royal protector that has true sovereignty, then we can’t fully endorse them as knights, but would offer to integrate them into either order to gain this valuable level of Royal protection of international sovereignty within the Brunswick jurisdiction or Gothia jurisdiction.
