Prince Pedro Luis de Orleans e Braganza was confirmed as one of the passengers on the Air France Flight 447 that disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean on Monday (June 1). The Brazilian Prince is a descendant of Peter II, the last Emperor of Brazil, who was overthrown in 1889 prior to the proclamation of the Republic, and fourth in line to the hypothetical Brazilian throne. He is 26 years-old.
Wreckage was found 700 kilometers (434 miles) from the Fernando de Noronha archipelago, said Brazilian Air Force spokesman Jorge Amaral. The search will continue but it still can’t be confirmed it is actually wreckage of the missing flight.
