You would've lost it anyway, eventually. It was never yours!
I find it kind of funny that bunch of people are arguing who is more noble than the other. The only reason they have the system in the first place is because someone was elevated above the other at some point, maybe because they were skilled at something. It doesn't mean their descendants were. They are all just people, not blue blooded aliens (or are they...?
). I also find it funny that a family line is considered extinct if there's no direct male line alive. As we all know, a father is more uncertain than a mother.
Some were against that Victoria would be queen and married a Westling because of as they see it the dynasti is with the men in a family. But now the law sais Bernadotte are still on the throne but som elder were really upset. Happy it changed.
