The Prussian Royal Family

In 2006 I was taking an upper level class at Portland State on the history of imperial Russia. In an email to my professor, I wrote about my surprise about discovering that the Prussian royal family still existed. I was considering something to do with Prussian-Russian relations as the subject of my major paper for the class. It was a bit broad a subject, but a good starting point.
