* ArtisticLicenseGeography: There's no such thing as a "Princess of Andorra". Although the leaders of the country are called "co-princes", it's not a hereditary monarchy. The co-princes are a bishop appointed by ThePope and the other is the President of France (formerly the King of France). The only way there would be an Andorran princess would be if the French president was female (the other co-prince can't be female, being a Catholic bishop and all).
