Sure they were. What I meant that as allies, they did not engage the Germans at sea!

comment What was the currency in use in Palestine shortly before and during WWI?
If I were you, I would only list the second reference. Because it itself has credible refernces from known encyclopedias. But good answer and the second reference has all the history of coins used in Palastine for those interested.

Thanks you Sir. This is the first time I heard of the Tokyo trials. Most of the documentaries I watched were all about Nuremberg.

As a ruling dynasty (nobility) not as a family

comment Have there been any efforts by the countries of Europe to restore their monarchies?
My impression is that many countries tried to restore back in many ways of life before the communist rule (language, religion, arts, national identity). The monarchies were of that past and they were deposed by the communists so that they would have served as an icon of restoration. After all, they all assume ceremonial parts.

comment What happened to the Imperial Byzantine Family after the collapse of the empire?
So I understand that the family is now extinct. But I just read in Wikipedia that the family was dissolved in 1678, like 200 years from the fall of Constantinople. They have become merchants and farmers though not nobility anymore. Interestingly, It also says that Queen Anne of Romania (b.1929) is of byzantine imperial family descent through the Arenbergs. Do not know if anyone could verify that.
