About Charles Edward Stuart, Count Roehenstart

Profile photo is obviously wrong,_Count_Roehenstart

Charles Edward Augustus Maximilian Stuart, Baron Korff, Count Roehenstart (ca. May 1784 – 28 October 1854) was the natural son of Prince Ferdinand of Rohan (1738-1813), Roman Catholic Archbishop of Cambrai, by Charlotte Stuart, Duchess of Albany, herself the natural but legitimated daughter of Charles Edward Stuart, 'The Young Pretender' or 'Bonnie Prince Charlie'. Roehenstart was later a passive Jacobite claimant to the British throne.

The name of "Roehenstart" given to him in infancy combined the names of both of his parents, Rohan and Stuart, while failing to proclaim their identity, which at the time would have been a cause for scandal.

Although he retired from military service as a lieutenant colonel, he is sometimes called "General" Charles Edward Stuart, and this title appears on his gravestone at Dunkeld.
