How is the German nobility different from the British?

Well… let’s see how I explain it to you, the British royal family is actually a branch of the German family, the original surname of the Windsors is the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Haus Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha for friends, for If that were not enough, the previous branch, that of the Queen Mother, is the House of Hanover, specifically the House of Brunswick and Lüneburg, line of Hannover, with origins in Swabia and Bavaria.

In the photo at the beginning you can see King George V (grandfather of the current queen) with his cousin, the last Kaiser William II, shortly before the start of the First World War, which is what caused the British to change their surname, to that of Windsor, so that their subjects would not see them as too German…

Here you can see the aforementioned King George V with his other cousin, Tsar Nicholas II… as you can see, everything stayed at home.
