The website is divided into two parts. The "Journalist" part gives an insight into my work as a royalty journalist, and shares some information about myself. The "Royalty" part is the royal website I set up in 1998.
I have been working as a royalty journalist, mainly freelance, since about 2000. I am always looking for a new project. If you are interested in my work, just send me an email.
I have been a keen royalty watcher since I was 6 years old, in early 1980, and I have collected books and read about royalty and nobility ever since. The arrival of the Internet has made it much easier for me to find information about royalty, and I have also met many other royalty watchers of all ages, each with his or her own specific interests.
If you are interested in what my collection looks like, just have a look at a part of my collection here.
I don't recall how or when I discovered Netty Leistra's original website, because it's now a long time ago, but I do
remember that I quickly came to depend on it and found it extremely useful for keeping up to date with the activities of members
of the royal houses of Europe. It soon became apparent that Miss Leistra has an extensive knowledge of such matters, not only
with the high-profile royals and those that I knew a little about, but also a few with whom I was not familiar at all! I have no
doubt that Netty's shiny new website will prove equally informative to me and many others in the months and years to come.

Netty Leistra is a well known and very respected researcher on reigning and formerly reigning "Royal Houses". Her website is
a great source for sophisticated information about royalty. She is very passionate about her work and has great knowledge. And she is
very helpful and it is always a pleasure to work with her.
Stefan Blatt, BUNTE
Netty Leistra has been for many years a leading expert on the members of today's Royal Houses, their ancestry and
background, and their current activities. She covers current royal events as a reporter and the information she posts on her own
website and on other forums has been a valuable resource. She is also a tireless researcher, and is one of the best at ferreting out
historical and genealogical information from available public records, both in print and online.
