Enjoying The Watchmaker of Filigree Street as far as I've got, but wondering if the Meiji emperor's second cousin would actually be called Matsumoto. Maybe through his mother...? Superficial googling is inconclusive about practice affecting married daughters of the royal house prior to 1947 (post-47 daughters who marry outside the family become commoners automatically.) But there were collateral branches of the royal family with effective last names that could have been changed to spare the innocent. No Nashimotos were harmed in the making of this book.

Whether any collateral royals would have been brought up in a *castle* OTOH...
