I join to François R. Velde although the aims of his site and my site are not identical:


This site tries to present facts and references. In the selection and presentation of the facts, my opinions, judgments and preconceptions are bound to play a role. Furthermore, there are several controversial subjects (on regulations or evaluation of nobility, on orders of knighthood, on certain institutions expecially on fontes honorum) on which I express my beliefs.


The opinions are mine. Although I cite various references, sources or individuals in presenting supporting evidence, they cannot be held responsible for the opinions I hold.


I do not intend to link to other internet sites. If there is referred an internet site the single purpose is to mention my source, not to identify myself with opinions, facts, falsifications or errors.


This disclaimer applies to the contents of the whole site.
