In order to prevent the spread of nonsense, and 
not out of any great respect for the British 
Royal Family, I should point out that this is a joke. 

The family in question currently call themselves the 
Mountbatten-Windsor family. The name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha 
did not seem quite English, or British, enough in 1916, 
so the name Windsor was adopted. After the present Queen
married the name Mountbatten, itself an Anglicisation
of Battenburg, was added. 

N.B. Windsor, not Winsor.

P.S. The Latin does not have the English translation 
alleged too, if you are wondering.
