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.

It’s amazing and fascinating, but in my early research I’ve found that the Prussian Royal Family still exists. Thought you might be interested.
His response wasn’t mean, but there are many royal lines in Europe which continue. My naïvety must have amused him.
