King Philip II of Spain's half brother Don Juan of Austria was addressed as "His Excellency" but was not allowed to reside in any royal palace nor stand with the Royal Family during Mass.

At the German Emperor's Imperial Palace, the style of the table decorations was always the same. Roses were the only flower the Empress would tolerate. Wine was the sole beverage.  Champagne Champagne Champagne Champagne

The court etiquette first appeared in Russia during the times of Tsar Peter I.The balls became one of the newly established court ceremonials. The Royal Decree of 1719 stated the balls being the inalienable part of Peter's assemblies.

In the sixteenth century the court of the principal Habsburg line in Spain became the model for the Austrian line. It is for this reason that the ceremonial at the Viennese Court is often described as "Spanish".

I’ve always wondered why!  Thanks CyrilSebastian, it’s such a pleasure to have you give us this good stuff.  I think you could take on any category on “Jeopardy” and win!

fairy, I have been learning about royalty and nobility since I was a little boy. Mother's parents have worked for a Hungarian count and countess. The Count was a Hungarian ambassador to the United States.

It is against royal etiquette to touch members of the British royal family. The only time you should have physical contact with them is when shaking their hand. That is only if they initiate the handshake.

Guess, that's to prevent everybody from coming up to take a hug.. apparently Michelle Obama didn't get the memo.

Neither did Paul Keating, former Prime Minister of Australia, who put his hand on the Queen's back. He was dubbed the "Lizard of Oz". Tony Abbott, another former Prime Minister did the same to Prince William.
