Hildegard is a female name derived from the Old High German hild ('war' or 'battle') and gard ('protection'), and means 'battle guard'.

Hildegard (828-856 or 859), was the daughter of Louis the German, Carolingian king of East Francia, and his wife Hemma. She was the abbess of Fraumünster, an abbey founded by her father.

Hildegard (c. 754-783), was a Frankish queen consort who was the second wife of Charlemagne and mother of Louis the Pious. Little is known about her life, because, like all women related to Charlemagne, she became notable only from a political background, recording her parentage, wedding, death, and her role as a mother

Princess Hildegard of Bavaria (German: Hildegard Luise Charlotte Theresia Friederike von Bayern)(1825 – 1864) was the seventh child and fourth daughter of Ludwig I of Bavaria and Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. In 1844, Hildegard married Archduke Albert of Austria, eldest son of Archduke Charles, Duke of Teschen and Princess Henrietta of Nassau-Weilburg. She thereafter became known as Archduchess Hildegard. She and her husband had 3 children

Wenzel is a male given name (long version Wenzeslaus) as the German and Old English form of the Czech given name Václav or Venceslav, meaning "praised with glory". Variations are Вячеслав (Ukrainian and Russian), Vencel (Hungarian), Wacław, Więcław, Wiesław (Polish), Venceslas/Wenceslas (French), Venceslao (Italian), Venceslau (Portuguese), Wenceslao (Spanish).

Archduke Wenceslaus of Austria (1561 – 1578), was a German prince and member of the House of Habsburg. Since 1577, he was appointed the Grand Prior of the Order of Malta in Castile. He was the son of Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor, and his wife Maria of Spain. In 1577, Wenceslaus was appointed Grand Prior of the Order of Malta in Castile, but died suddenly one year later in Madrid at age seventeen.

Wenzel Anton, Prince of Kaunitz-Rietberg (German: Wenzel Anton Reichsfürst von Kaunitz-Rietberg, Czech: Václav Antonín z Kounic a Rietbergu)(1711 – 1794) was an Austrian and Czech diplomat and statesman in the Habsburg Monarchy. Kaunitz was born in Vienna, Austria, one of 19 children of Maximilian Ulrich, third Count of Kaunitz (1679–1746), and his consort Marie Ernestine, née Countess of East Frisia and Rietberg (1687–1758), an heiress of the Cirksena dynasty. The Kaunitz family (Kounicové) belonged to the old Czech nobility and, like the related Martinic dynasty, derived its lineage from the medieval Vršovci clan in the Kingdom of Bohemia. Wenzel Anton himself married Maria Ernestine von Starhemberg (1717–1749), a granddaughter of Imperial Chamber president Gundaker Thomas Starhemberg (1663–1745), in 1736. Four sons were born of the marriage,among them the Austrian general Count Franz Wenzel von Kaunitz-Rietberg (1742–1825)


Franz Wenzel, Graf von Kaunitz-Rietberg (1742-1825) was an Austrian general who saw service in the Seven Years' War and Wars of the French Revolution. Kaunitz was the third son of the statesman Wenzel Anton von Kaunitz-Rietberg and his wife, Mary Ernestine (née Countess Starhemberg). He remained unmarried.


Klemens Wenzel Nepomuk Lothar, Prince of Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein (German: Klemens Wenzel Nepomuk Lothar Fürst von Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein)(1773 – 1859) was an Austrian diplomat who was at the center of European affairs for four decades as the Austrian Empire's foreign minister from 1809 and Chancellor from 1821 until the liberal Revolutions of 1848 forced his resignation. Klemens Metternich was born into the House of Metternich in 1773 to Franz George Karl Count Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein, a diplomat who had passed from the service of the Archbishopric of Trier to that of the Imperial court, and his wife Countess Maria Beatrice Aloisia von Kageneck. In 1795 he married Countess Eleonore von Kaunitz (1775 – 1825), a granddaughter of former Austrian chancellor Wenzel Kaunitz. The marriage was arranged by Metternich's mother and introduced him to Viennese society. This was undoubtedly part of the motivation for Metternich, who demonstrated less affection for her than she for him. The couple had 8 children. In 1827 Baroness Antoinette von Leykam (1806 – 1829) became Metternich's second wife. She was only twenty, and their marriage, a small affair at Hetzendorf (a village just outside Vienna), drew considerable criticism considering their difference in status . She belonged to the lower nobility, but Antoinette's grace and charm soon won over Viennese society. They had 1 child, a son. In 1831 he married  Melanie Zichy-Ferraris (1805 – 1854, with whom he had 5 children.


Klemens II Wenzel Lothar Michal Felix (Richard), 4th Prince Metternich (1869 –  1930), son of Paul Klemens Lothar, 3rd Prince Metternich (1834 – 1906) and his cousin Countess Melania Zichy-Ferraris de Zich und Vásonykeö. He married in 1905 to Isabel de Silva y Carvajal. They had one son.

Joseph Wenzel I (Josef Wenzel Lorenz; 9 August 1696 – 10 February 1772) was the Prince of Liechtenstein between 1712 and 1718, 1732 and 1745, and 1748 and 1772. Joseph Wenzel was the eldest son of Prince Philip Erasmus of Liechtenstein (1664 – 1704) and Countess Christina Theresa von Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1665 – 1730). He was a nephew of Anton Florian. When he died in 1772 in Vienna, without surviving issue, Liechtenstein went to his nephew Franz Joseph I, Prince of Liechtenstein.

Prince Joseph Wenzel of Liechtenstein, Count Rietberg (1995) is the eldest child of Prince Alois of Liechtenstein, the Regent and Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein, and his wife Princess Sophie of Bavaria, Duchess in Bavaria, he is also the eldest grandchild of the current ruling prince of Liechtenstein.

Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein (1974) is a member of the princely family of Liechtenstein. He is the son of Prince Philip Erasmus of Liechtenstein and Isabelle de L'Arbre de Malander. And therefore the grandson of  Franz Joseph II, Prince of Liechtenstein (1906–1989) and Wenzeslaus is the nephew of the reigning sovereign Fürst Hans Adam IIHe was born to the style of a Serene Highness and Prince of Liechtenstein, and is additionally a Count of Rietberg.

Camilla or Camila is a feminine given name. The French variant Camille may be either masculine or feminine. The Portuguese and Spanish variant is spelled Camila; in Slavic languages it is Kamila/Kamilla.

Camilla originates as the feminine of camillus, a term for a youth serving as acolyte in the ritual of ancient Roman religion, which may be of Etruscan origin.

Hypocorisms of the name include "Milly", "Millie", and "Mille".


Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (born Camilla Rosemary Shand, later Parker Bowles)(1947) is a member of the British royal family. She is the second wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, heir apparent to the British throne. Instead of using the title Princess of Wales, she uses the title Duchess of Cornwall, her husband's secondary designation. In Scotland, she is known as the Duchess of Rothesay. Camilla is the eldest child of Major Bruce Shand and his wife Rosalind Cubitt, the daughter of Roland Cubitt, 3rd Baron Ashcombe. In 1973 she married  Andrew Parker Bowles‍ (1939). They had two children. In 1994, after 21 years of marriage, Camilla and her husband both issued divorce proceedings on the grounds they had been living separately for years. Camilla and Prince Charles reportedly met in mid-1971. Andrew Parker Bowles had ended his relationship with Camilla in 1970 and was courting Princess Anne, Charles's sister. Though Camilla and Charles belonged to the same social circle and occasionally attended the same events, they had not formally met. When they became a couple, they regularly met at polo matches at Smith's Lawn in Windsor Great Park, where Charles often played polo. They also became part of a set at Annabel's in Berkeley Square. As the relationship grew more serious, Charles met Camilla's family in Plumpton and he introduced her to some members of his family. The relationship was put on hold after Charles travelled overseas to join the Royal Navy in early 1973; however, it ended abruptly afterward. There have been different statements on why the couple's relationship ended in 1973. Overall, the majority of royal biographers have agreed that even if Charles and Camilla wanted to marry or did try for approval to get married, it would have been declined, because according to Charles's cousin and godmother Patricia Mountbatten, some palace courtiers at that time found Camilla unsuitable as a wife for the future king.Nevertheless, they remained friends. A source close to Camilla confirmed that by 1980 they had indeed rekindled as lovers. However, there are also claims by royal staff it occurred earlier. Reportedly, Camilla's husband approved of the affair, while he had numerous lovers throughout their marriage. In 1981, Charles married Lady Diana Spencer.The affair became public knowledge in the press a decade later. Following both of their divorces, Prince Charles declared his relationship with Camilla was, and is, "non-negotiable". Charles was aware that the relationship was receiving a lot of negative publicity. In 2005 Charles and Camilla got married.

Gunilla is a Swedish female name, derived from Gunhild.

Gunhild, Gunnhild, Gunnhildr, Gundhild, Gunhilde or Gunhilda is a Germanic feminine given name composed of two words meaning "war" (hild/hildr and gunn)

Gunhilda of Wenden was a semi-legendary Polish or other Slavic princess and Danish Viking age queen consort, the supposed spouse of 10th-century King Sweyn I of Denmark (986–1014).

Gunhild of Wessex (ft 1066-1093) was a younger daughter of Harold Godwinson and his first wife, Edyth Swannesha, who was most likely the wealthy magnate Edyth the Fair from the Domesday Book

Gunhilda of Denmark (c. 1020 – 1038), a member of the House of Knýtlinga, was Queen consort of Germany by her marriage with King Henry III of the Salian dynasty from 1036 until her death.

Gunhilde (or Gunnhild) (died 1002) is said to have been the sister of Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, and the daughter of Harald Bluetooth. She was married to Pallig, a Dane who served the King of England, Æthelred the Unready, as ealdorman of Devonshire.

Gunnhildr konungamóðir (mother of kings) or Gunnhildr Gormsdóttir, whose name is often Anglicised as Gunnhild (c. 910  –  c. 980) is a quasi-historical figure who appears in the Icelandic Sagas, according to which she was the wife of Eric Bloodaxe (king of Norway 930–34, 'King' of Orkney c. 937–54, and king of Jórvík 948–49 and 952–54).

Gunnhildr Sveinsdóttir or Gunnhildr Haraldsdóttir, Guda or Gyda (traditionally died in Gudhem, Västergötland, Sweden, c. 1060) was, according to the traditional view, a queen consort of King Anund Jacob of Sweden and of king Sveinn II of Denmark. However, the sources are so vague that several modern historians maintain that there were actually two queens of that name, of Sweden and Denmark respectively.[1] She is sometimes called Gude or Gyridje, but this is probably because of confusion with her daughter, Gyda, who is also known under her mother's name Gunnhildr.

Gunilla Bielke; Swedish: Gunilla Johansdotter Bielke af Åkerö (1568 – 1597) was Queen of Sweden as the second spouse King John III. Queen Gunilla is acknowledged to have acted as the political adviser to John III and to have influenced his religious policies in favor of Protestantism. Gunilla Bielke was the daughter of the cousin of John III, the former governor of Östergötland Johan Axelsson Bielke, and Margareta Axelsdotter Posse. About half a year after the death of his first queen in 1583, John III chose her to be his next consort, after first having considered Sigrid Brahe. The couple had 1 son.


Countess Gunilla von Bismarck-Schönhausen (1949)


Gunnila Märta Louise Bernadotte, Countess of Wisborg (1923 – 2016) was a Swedish countess. The daughter of Nils Wachtmeister af Johannishus, she was first married to Carl-Herman Bussler in 1942; the couple had three children together. Following his death, in 1988 in Copenhagen she became the second wife of Count Carl Johan Bernadotte (1916-2012), a widower and the youngest son of Gustaf VI Adolf. Via her marriage to Bernadotte she became nobility in Luxembourg.

The name Friso is a boy's name of Dutch origin meaning "a Frisian". Friso is a name that refers to Frisian person living in the Dutch province of Friesland.

Friso is a legendary king of the Frisians who is said to have ruled around 300 BC. According to Martinus Hamconius in his 17th century chronicle Frisia seu de viris rebusque illustribus, and also the 19th century Oera Linda Book, Friso was a leader of a group of Frisian colonists who had been settled in the Punjab for well over a millennium when they were discovered by Alexander the Great. Taking service with Alexander, Friso and the colonists eventually found their way back to their ancestral homeland of Frisia, where Friso founded a dynasty of kings.
Another legend has it that a red banner owned by Friso, called the Magnusvaan, is hidden at the church Almenum

Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau (Dutch: Johan Friso Bernhard Christiaan David van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg)(1968 – 2013) was a younger brother of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands. Prince Friso was a member of the Dutch Royal Family, but because of his marriage without an Act of Consent in 2004, he lost his membership of the Dutch Royal House and was no longer in the line of succession to the throne. He was the second son of then Princess Beatrix (became Queen Beatrix in 1980) and Prince Claus. In 2004 he married Dutch woman Mabel Wisse Smit. They had 2 daughters: Luana (2005) and Zaria (2006) On 17 February 2012, Prince Friso was buried under an avalanche in Lech, Austria, while skiing off piste. He was taken to a hospital in Innsbruck, where he was in a critical but stable condition. According to his doctor, Wolfgang Koller, even though he was trapped for a relatively short time and hopes had originally been higher, subsequent neurological tests showed that after fifty minutes of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in moderate hypothermia, he suffered massive brain damage due to oxygen shortage. His initial coma later progressed to a minimally conscious state, and it was unclear whether he would ever regain full consciousness. On 12 August 2013, one and a half years after the accident, Prince Friso died of complications

John William Friso (Dutch: Johan Willem Friso van Oranje-Nassau)(1687 – 1711) became the (titular) Prince of Orange in 1702. He was the Stadtholder of Friesland and Groningen in the Dutch Republic until his death by accidentally drowning in the Hollands Diep in 1711. Friso and his wife, Marie Louise, are the most recent common ancestors of all European monarchs occupying the throne today. He was the son of Hendrik Casimir II, Prince of Nassau-Dietz, and Princess Henriëtte Amalia of Anhalt-Dessau who were both first cousins of William III. With the death of William III, Prince of Orange, the legitimate male line of William the Silent (the second House of Orange) became extinct. John William Friso, the senior agnatic descendant of William the Silent's brother and a cognatic descendant of Frederick Henry, grandfather of William III, claimed the succession as stadtholder in all provinces held by William III. This was denied to him by the republican faction in the Netherlands. John William Friso's position as William III's heir general was opposed by King Frederick I of Prussia, who also claimed (and occupied) part of the inheritance (for example Lingen). Under William III's will, Friso stood to inherit the Principality of Orange. However, the Prussian King Frederick I also claimed the Principality of Orange in the Rhône Valley, of which he later ceded the territory to France. In 1709, John William Friso married Princess Maria Louise of Hesse-Kassel (1688–1765), daughter of Charles I, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, and granddaughter of Jacob Kettler, Duke of Courland. They had two children. In 1711, when traveling from the front in Flanders to meet the King of Prussia in The Hague in connection with his suit in the succession dispute, he drowned on 14 July when the ferry boat on the Moerdyk was overturned in heavy weather. His son was born six weeks after his death

Floris is a masculine given name of Dutch origin. It means "blooming". Originally, this name comes from the Latin word "florens", which means "thriving, charming, in appearance". Today the name is seen as typically Dutch. The boy's name is derived from Florentius or Flora. Flora was the goddess of flowers and spring.


Floris I, Count of Holland (c.1017–1061)

Floris II, Count of Holland (c.1085–1121)

Floris III, Count of Holland (1141–1190)

Floris IV, Count of Holland (1210–1234)

Floris de Voogd (c.1228–1258), interim count of Holland, and guardian of Floris V

Floris V, Count of Holland (1254–1296)

Floris of Zeeland (c.1255–1297), stadholder of Zeeland

Floris van Egmont (c.1470–1539), Dutch nobleman, stadtholder of Guelders and Friesland

Floris van Montmorency, baron of Montigny (?, 1528 - 1570) was a noble and diplomat from the Spanish Netherlands. He was born as the son of Jozef van Montmorency, Count of Nevele and Anna van Egmont the Elder, and was the younger brother of Philip de Montmorency, Count of Horn.


Floris Adriaan van Hall, Baron of Hall (1791 – 1866) was a prominent Dutch nobleman and statesman in the 19th century. He played an important role as representative of the Amsterdam trade and banking sector, and later as politician. He served as Prime Minister of the Netherlands from 1853 to 1856, and again from 1860 to 1861. Van Hall was born in Amsterdam, in 1791, the oldest of six children. His father was Maurits Cornelis van Hall, who seated in the First Chamber of the States General, and his wife Elisabeth Christina Klinkhamer. 1856, King Willem II gave him the title of Baron, as a token of appreciation for his actions as minister of Foreign Affairs in the Crimean War, where he managed to uphold Dutch neutrality. an Hall married Alida Paulina (Pauline) Bondt in Amsterdam in 1815, but she died in 1845. In 1853, at the age of 62, Van Hall entered a second marriage with Henriëtte Marie Jeanne, Baroness Schimmelpenninck van der Oye. Both marriages remained childless.


Prince Floris Frederik Martijn of Orange-Nassau, van Vollenhoven (1975) is the fourth and youngest son of Princess Margriet of the Netherlands and Pieter van Vollenhoven. In 2005 he married Aimée Söhngen, the daughter of Hans Söhngen and Eleonoor Stammeijer. Prince Floris had been 10th in the line of succession to the Dutch throne but decided not to seek parliamentary approval for his marriage, as would be required in the Netherlands. This means that Prince Floris ceased to be in line to inherit the throne when he married. Floris and Aimée have 3 children: Magali (2007); Eliane (2009) and Willem Jan (2013). The children have no titles and have the surname 'Van Vollenhoven'.


Flora is a feminine given name. Flora is derived from Florentius. Florentius or Flora comes from the Latin word "florens", which means "blooming, charming, in appearance". Flora was the goddess of flowers and spring.


Flora MacDonald (Gaelic: Fionnghal nic Dhòmhnaill); (1722 – 1790) was a member of the Macdonalds of Sleat, who helped Charles Edward Stuart evade government troops after the Battle of Culloden in April 1746. Her family supported the government during the 1745 Rising and Flora later claimed to have assisted Charles out of sympathy for his situation. She was the third and last child of Ranald MacDonald (d. 1723) and his second wife Marion. Her father was a member of the minor gentry, being tacksman and leaseholder of Milton and Balivanich. Her father died soon after her birth and in 1728, her mother remarried Hugh MacDonald of Armadale, Skye. Flora was brought up by her father's cousin, Sir Alexander MacDonald of Sleat. She was arrested and held in the Tower of London but released under a general amnesty in June 1747. She later married Allan MacDonald and the couple emigrated to North Carolina in 1773. Their support for the British government during the American War of Independence meant the loss of their American estates and they returned to Scotland, where Flora died in 1790.


Flora Alexandra Ogilvy (1994) daughter of Julia Caroline Rawlinson and James Ogilvy; therefore a paternal granddaughter of Sir Angus Ogilvy and Princess Alexandra of Kent. Flora runs a contemporary art agency. She became engaged in 2019 to Timothy Vesterberg, a Swedish financier.

Flora Mure-Campbell, Marchioness of Hastings and 6th Countess of Loudoun (1780 – 1840) was a British peer, the second daughter of James Mure-Campbell, 5th Earl of Loudoun and Lady Flora Macleod. She married Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 2nd Earl of Moira, later the Governor-General of India, Governor of Malta and Marquess of Hastings, in 1804 and with him had six children.

Lady Flora Elizabeth Rawdon-Hastings (1806 – 1839) was a British aristocrat and lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent. Her death in 1839 was the subject of a court scandal that gave the Queen a negative image. Lady Flora was one of the daughters of Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 1st Marquess of Hastings (1754–1826) and his wife Flora Mure-Campbell (1780–1840) The unmarried Lady Flora was alleged to have had an affair with John Conroy, comptroller, "favourite" and also suspected lover of Queen Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent. Sometime in 1839, Lady Flora began to experience pain and swelling in her lower abdomen. She visited the queen's physician, Sir James Clark, who could not diagnose her condition without an examination, which she refused. Clark assumed the abdominal growth was pregnancy, and met with Lady Flora twice a week for about a month. As she was unmarried, his suspicions were hushed up. However, her enemies, Baroness Lehzen and the Marchioness of Tavistock (better known as the inventor of afternoon tea) spread the rumour that she was "with child", and eventually Lehzen told Melbourne about her fears. On 2 February, the queen wrote in her journal that she suspected Conroy, a man whom she loathed intensely, to be the father. Lady Flora felt that she had to defend herself in public, publishing her version of events in the form of a letter which appeared in The Examiner, and blaming "a certain foreign lady" (Lehzen) for spreading the rumours. The accusations were proven false when Lady Flora finally consented to a physical examination by the royal doctors, who confirmed that she was not pregnant. She did, however, have an advanced cancerous liver tumour, and had only months left to live. With only two months to live, Lady Flora wrote in 1839 to her mother on the subject of the upcoming Eglinton Tournament, expressing her concern that one of the knights might be killed in the violent sport. Queen Victoria visited the now emaciated and clearly dying Lady Flora on 27 June. Lady Flora died in London on 5 July 1839, aged 33. She was buried at Loudoun Castle, her family home. Conroy and Lord Hastings, her brother, stirred up a press campaign against both the Queen and Doctor Clark which attacked them for insulting and disgracing Lady Flora with false rumours and for plotting against her and the entire Hastings family. Victoria remained haunted by guilty memories of Lady Flora, having nightmares about her for years afterwards.


Lady Flora Paulyna Hetty Barbara Abney Hastings (1854–1887), daughter of Edith Maud Rawdon-Hastings, 10th Countess of Loudoun (1833 – 1874) and Charles Clifton, 1st Baron Donington, who took the name Abney-Hastings. She married Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk and had issue.

Countess Floria Franziska Marie-Luisa Erika von Faber-Castell (1974) a niece of Count Anton Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, chairman of the board of the famous Faber-Castell pen-and-pencil company headquartered near Nuremberg and scion of the eponymous family. In 2003 she married Donatus, Prince and Landgrave of Hesse (Heinrich Donatus Philipp Umberto)(1966). He  the eldest son and successor of German aristocrat Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse, and his former wife, Princess Tatiana of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

The couple have a daughter and two sons, Princess Paulina and Hereditary Prince Moritz (twins, 2007) and Prince August (2012).


Florence is a feminine English given name. It is the French version after Saint Florentia, Roman martyr under Diocletian. It comes from Latin florens, florentius "blossoming", verb floreo, meaning "I blossom / flower / I flourish". Florence was in olden times also used as a translation of the Latin version Florentius, and may be used in this context as a male given name.
