    Je suis apparenté aux WITTELSBACH. Il descendent d’un couple de la noblesse bretonne -Roland de LEZONGAR x Amice du HAFFOND- qui sont aussi mes ancêtres. ILs demeuraient au fin fond de la Bretagne, du côté d’Audierne.

    Dear Prince Michael of Greece
    Your amazing photographs are brilliant, it is only a dream for most people to have the chance to look back on family history in pictures. So a huge thank you for allowing everyone to have the chance to see them
    Many Thanks
