Bavarian throne first for Franz

Sir: While Duke Franz of Bavaria is indeed the senior representative of the Stuart line ("King Franz of Scotland?", 11 January), before he concerns himself with the Scottish throne he will surely wish to see the restoration of his native Bavaria's.

In 1992 a Bavarian radio phone-in poll resulted in 68 per cent voting for the country to be a kingdom once more. This is exactly twice the number who, in the recent television debate, voted in favour of a British republic. I trust that all those who believe the British republican minority should be given the right to have a president will be equally vociferous in supporting the Bavarian majority's desire to have a king.
