Probably because in your reply of 11 Nov. 2010 I quote you, "You should know all about this if your an expert on Father Gallitzin." To think he is the grandson of Catherine II the Great is not the same as to be certain and prove it with facts from reliable and redoutable sources. What is your source? Where can you quote from? What can you cite? I have already named the Almanach de Gotha as my source. Do you just have a gut feeling that he is Catherine II the Great's grandson?
