The further an individual is from a royal line, the less likely it is that his or her immediate family will be included.
RoyaList Online is intended as a general reference for those interested in royal genealogy, rather than as a specialist tool, and the vast majority of the information provided has therefore been drawn from secondary sources, such as royal biographies, rather than from original research.
Often, different sources disagree on a given subject, and in these instances we have tried to use whichever one appears to be most authoritative and reliable, although where this is difficult to judge we have simply chosen whichever interpretation seemed most likely.

Hence Wilcher sees the mixed feelings in Royalist elegies over the death of the Earl of Strafford as indicative of how a "generation of poets was entering uncharted territory in which familiar modes of expression would be put under increasing strain by circumstances that undermined the moral and political assumptions of the past" (63).
The dispersal of writers after Oxford ceased to serve as Royalist headquarters and the tendency to favor reprints rather than new work reflected "the ebbing of Royalist confidence in the literary as well as the military sphere of the conflict" (229).
Wilcher identifies Royalist skills in various literary styles including ventriloquism and the use of a variety of other genres such as letters and nascent forms of historiography.

 [EMLS 05-1 (May, 1999): 9.1-5 (Review of Royalism and Poetry
Loxley argues that from 1641 until the end of the civil wars royalist poets increasingly began to depict the king in terms of his limited spatial presence, as, with Charles's foregoing of London, parliament could claim the symbolic authority of the kingdom's capital.
Loxley's view of a clearly defined enemy in royalist writing may be a bit too easy, but his examination of the poetic forms that were deployed in a rhetorical battle over the right reading of the royal image, one which royalist panegyric and epideictic had itself constructed, leads to some interesting insights.
Here, in his analysis of royalist elegies, Loxley most convincingly confronts the critical views of Cavalier verse as a poetics of retirement -- the defeat of the cause enacted in the regicide only increased the cultural significance of continuing the Stuart cause for these writers.
