   Question by IJzeren Jan   

Is it thinkable that the first king of Estonia (in 1918) was Adolf Friedrich von Mecklenburg-Schwerin? *Here* he was the projected monarch of the "United Baltic Duchy" Germany had in mind after the Peace of Brest-Litovsk, but this never happened because Germany lost the war in the west. My guess is that *there* he might have endured. In that case, king Lembit would be his offspring. Kristian? Dan? Others?

This was before all the chaos that took place in Mecklenburg during GWII when the duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and his family were liquidated by the Hessler regime. So I think its possible. Boreanesia 04:27, 18 Feb 2005 (PST)
Remembering of course that not all of Mecklenburg-Schwerin were liquidated, as the SR Queen and Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein survived the Hesslerian purge.
How would that affect things in GWII? BoArthur
I can't really tell, because I don't know what the family looked like. Have we ever mentioned the name of the duke who was killed by Hessler? IJzeren Jan 00:43, 19 Feb 2005 (PST)
The one that I had planned on/expected was indeed, Adolf Friedrich VI, father to Alexandrine "Adini", the wife of Christian X and his son, Alexandrine's brother. I had been under the impression there were only 2 children in the family. I could be wrong. BoArthur 17:13, 22 November 2005 (PST)

version 1 version 2 --Marc Pasquin 16:34, 22 November 2005 (PST)

Excellent. I prefer the second version (in the first, it looks a bit like the poor animal has been stabbed with a cross).

I've been thinking about how this could look on a flag. All in all, if we want to keep the lions on a white background, I can think of two alternatives: [...]

Personally, I think I prefer the second version. But perhaps you have a different opinion? Or, if we should go for the blue-black-white flag after all, would it be possible for you to place the lions against a black background instead of a while? --IJzeren Jan 12:39, 23 November 2005 (PST)

A few ideas:
--Marc Pasquin 15:17, 23 November 2005 (PST)
Definitely #2! I think it has all the qualities we need: basically the same flag as the pre-GW2 and post-snorist flag, but nicely transformed into something with a distinctly totalitarian look. Very nice, really. The other ones aren't bad either, but somehow the oval reminds me more of a corporate logo. Thanks! --IJzeren Jan 00:29, 24 November 2005 (PST)
I like #2 as well. Zahir 07:35, 24 November 2005 (PST)
Alright then, if no one else objects, #2 it will be. Shall I delete the other proposals, then? --IJzeren Jan 12:10, 24 November 2005 (PST)
Delete away. --Marc Pasquin 05:44, 26 November 2005 (PST)


   Question by Deiniol   

Two questions, actually:

1) In 1924 Estonia was a republic. Where did the current monarchy come from? 2) In the late 1970s, The Forest Brethren developed in the countryside as an anti-snorist (*) force, reaching a peak in 1950-53. - Surely that should be "early 1950's"?

Deiniol 07:29, 28 February 2006 (PST)

Good thinking, Mr. Jones! And careful reading, too! :) Yes, you are absolutely right in both cases. I've changed "republic" to "kingdom", and changed the "late 1970s" to the "early 1950"s. —IJzeren Jan Uszkie┼étu? 05:49, 1 March 2006 (PST)

I can see the image is coming uncomplete. For correct view click on image, please.--Pedromoderno 14:39, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
I think it's just the thumbnail. Maybe try saving it as a jpg? BoArthur 16:21, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
