Or for that matter the Romanov family in Russia? How responsive are the people over there to that sort of thing?
There are some royalist in Romania that talks about getting King Mihail back, but they are maybe 15-20% only. I doubt it will ever happen.

The Byzantines introduce the Varangian ("Pledged") Guard. Before 1066, this mercenary force was filled with Slavs and Norsemen, the most famous of whom was the eleventh century King Harold Hardraada of Norway. After 1066, many members were English.
