Genstab: Be sure to consult the REVISED list of WWI Field Marshals and Fleet Admirals I posted Dec. 7, 2003- there are two of them together as I tried to put a notice on the previous one that it was obsolete and that brought it up to Dec. 7th also.

A question: should those marshals come from Bayern or Sachsen royal families be called after their family names, as "Maximilian Joseph Maris Arnuf Leopold Wittelsbach" or "Kronprinz Albert Wettin"?
