Heitor, Prince Royal (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 10 September 2011) is the heir presumptive to the throne of Ebenthal as nephew to King Arthur II through his older sister, Princess Élida of Ebenthal. He became Prince Royal upon becoming heir to the throne, instead of Prince of Belmonte as traditionally, thus separating the roles of heir to the national throne to that of sub-national monarch.

Prince Heitor became heir to the throne upon his mother's renunciation of her dynastic rights at request of the King. Unlike his mother, Heitor is actively engaged in micronationalism under his uncle's tutelage, having read speeches and swearing to the Constitution of Ebenthal upon his appointment as crown prince.


Early life and education

Prince Heitor was born in Rio de Janeiro being the only son of Élida, Princess of Belmonte to Felipe Moreira, both respectively the leading ballet dancers at the Municipal Theater of Rio de Janeiro. By his mother's side, he is the second nephew to King Arthur II of Ebenthal as well as second grandson to Armando, 5th Baron of Roches. He was baptized at the Church of Saint Jude the Apostle, having as godparents Princess Laíze of Ebenthal and Mr. Alexandre Moraes, a friend of the family.

From an early age, Prince Heitor enrolled at Applicated College Ao Cubo in the neighbourhood of Laranjeiras, bordering Altenburg, where he lives at the Central Hill Palace. Very active, the Prince is a swimmer and is an orange belt in karate, and has an intermediate level of English.


Heir to the Ebenthali throne

In February 2021, during a private festivity at the Central Hill Palace, King Arthur II asked the then Prince Heitor of Ebenthal if he was interested in take an active role in the Ebenthali monarchy and day-to-day affairs, as the young prince is very interested in geopolitical-related stuff such as maps and flags, and he accepted. The King planned, then, for Heitor to become his apparent heir, as, being the only son to the heiress of the throne, he was already the presumptive heir.

In 11 April 2021 Princess Élida, Heitor's mother, resigned her dynastical rights as asked and instructed by her brother, the King, and act which came into force simultaneously with the Belmontine Act, by which the heir to the Ebenthali throne would be forever disconected from the Principality of Belmonte and thus wouldn't use the Prince of Belmonte title. Instead, Prince Heitor was created Prince of Bruges,[1] a title which evokes the homonymous birthplace of the House of Bruyn[2] "symbolizing the House's future" according to King Arthur. The monarch also stated that the fact that the title evokes the family's ancient birthplace into a person who represents the family's future is, alongside with the fact that the Prince is an active micronationalist, different from his mother, works as a mean and symbol to perpetuate the House of Bruyn at the Ebenthali throne.

The parliament convened that same day and recognized Prince Heitor as the heir to the throne. In the event of the King's absence, incapability, abdication or death, Heitor is to become King of Ebenthal and a regency on the person of the Seneschal of Ebenthal shall rule as long as the king remains a minor. On the occasion, the new Prince of Bruges swore loyalty to the King and constitution. In 5 February 2022, though, King Arthur issued a decree creating for the apparent heir to the throne of Ebenthal the title of Prince of Altenburg with legal retroactive effect to Heitor's former title as his heir.
