    My name is Netty Leistra. I was born in Sneek, The Netherlands in 1973, and have enjoyed watching royalty since I was a little child. In 1980, when The Netherlands got a new Queen, I was 6 1/2 years old. I was fascinated and my mother encouraged me to collect souvenirs and magazines. At the time nobody would have thought that royalty and nobility would play such a huge role in my life.

    It all started with pictures and articles about royals, mainly from The Netherlands, Great Britain and Monaco. Soon I was able to read books about royalty too. My library, of course, mainly had books about Dutch royals. At secondary school I didn't care much about royals. It was not until I started studying in the early 1990s that I got the chance to read and learn more about all kinds of royal families and their genealogies.

    When I started my website in October 1998 I did not realize that there were many people with an interest in royalty. But I have since encountered lots and lots of people online who are interested in the most different subjects. It encouraged me to travel to royal and noble events outside my own country, and I have enjoyed meeting other people with similar interests.

    I enjoy reading and hearing about the reigning and non-reigning royal houses and their members all over the world.
