Details on ancestry of Princess Muna and her father.
William Addams Reitwiesner "The Ancestry of HRH Princess Muna"
on his website. Reitwiesner is a part-time genealogist, whose works (some co-authored with other genealogists) have been published in genealogical periodicals.
Doris Elizabeth Sutton is claimed by one website[
to have illegitimate descent from Maltese nobility; the father of her maternal grandmother, (Gertrude) Ruth Green, being unknown.
However, that website provides no evidence to support its claims within the site, or subsequently on genealogical forums.
