HIM King Roman, Royal Sovereign of Europa, Grand Duke Lithuania, was born at 23 Eildon  Street, Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland, on 7th March 1942 during World War II - biological son   of Grand Prince Roman Emil, Count of Lubraniec Dambski (Boryslaw 02 Jul 1901 - 22 Nov 1967 Gliwice, carried in procession to Brama IV Warsaw in 1988), and Katherine Mann (Linlithgow 21 Nov 1913 - 08 Feb 2011 Torquay) - (Prince) Ronald Victor Charles.

Katherine Mann's father was George Alphonse Henri Waersegers (Brussels 1857-1932 Linlithgow), her mother Henriette Josephine Joanna Sambler (Amsterdam 1867-1943 Linlithgow), who was descended from Sir Anthony van Dyck who was court painter to King James I & VI, who united the Scottish and English thrones, and his ill-fated successor King Charles I.

On 13 November 1927, in a civil ceremony at Lwow, Count Roman Dambski of Lubraniec married Princess Paulina Irma Gedroyc (Mostyska 30 Mar 1905 - 04 Feb 1993 Warsaw), first child and heiress of Prince Wladislaw Ignacy Marek Gedroyc (1862-1943 Zubracze), and who became Paulina Dambska.

During World War II, Lieutenant Roman Dambski I of Lubraniec resided at 45 Buckingham Terrace, Edinburgh, Scotland, from 1940, when he was posted there with Polish Corps 7 Rifles. As a qualified chemical engineer, he worked at the Paderewski Hospital which was attached to Edinburgh University, and he did returned to Poland in 1947 after it was discovered in 1946 that King Roman's stepmother Princess Paulina Dambska had survived the war after having been officially declared dead in 1940.

Prince Roman I fathered two children by Katherine Mann, namely Ronald Victor Charles (now King Roman) in 1942, and (Princess) Christine Elizabeth Catherine in 1945, and inherited / succeeded as Grand Prince/Grand Duke of Lithuania in 1943 on the death of Grand Prince Wladislaw.

"A monarchy in exile has legal rights, supported in International Law, to exist & to continue to conduct business of the monarchy as though still in power"

By the legal premise that "silence signifies assent" the several  governments of Lithuania  and later the Lithuanian Nobility Society have recognized by default the Royal Rank and Sovereign Status of Grand Duke Roman II without demur since he was patented in 1993, just as he has accepted the constitutional civil sovereignty of their leaders.
