Rubert, Duke of Cumberland LNAB?

Rupert's LNAB needs to be fixed - Cumberland is wrong and my best guess at the LNAB is 'Pfalz' and his CLN is probably von der Pfalz. 

However, since his house name was Pfalz-Simmern (a cadet branch of Wittelsbach) and his move back to England as Duke of Cumberland and no legitimate male issue maybe its more complicated. I'm not sure what the rules are for the aristocracy of the Holy Roman Empire in Wikitree and I know the Kings of Bohemia proj. probably will fix his father and siblings, they all seem wrong as well.

By the 17th century German nobility did not universally use dynastic names anymore, his LNAB should be "von der Pfalz" (EuroAristo rules concerning "von" etc. are only covering up to the 16th century) but his given name at birth was Ruprecht, Rupert is only the English version of the name used later in life.

As for his father, apart from the fact that the Bohemian kings were not called "Bohemia" (their title would be Český král), it should really not be his Current Last Name since he was not the king of Bohemia for his last 11 years.

That makes sense, thanks hopefully a leader can fix his LNAB. Most of his siblings have the LNAB "Simmern", his notable sister Sophia has her LNAB as "Palatinate-Simmern".

I fiddled with his first name - considering the length of his DNB article, he's pretty notable and appears to be most often known as 'Prince Rupert' but I left it as Rupert.
