I have received the titles of Prince of Hierapolis, Duke of Mardin, Count of Pontus, and Byzantine Patrician and Count Palatine of the Justinian-Heraclian Dynasty of Tomasi (subsequently Tomassini)-Paternò Leopardi of Constantinople. I am an Honorary Cousin, Peer and Privy Counsellor of Prince don Ezra. I am also a Knight Grand Cross of Justice with Collar of all the present and future Orders of the Dynasty, currently the Ordine Imperiale della Corona Eracliana di Costantinopoli, the Ordine della Guardia d’Onore di Santa Sofia, and the Ordine Imperiale Costantiniano di San Giorgio.

Prince don Ezra has graciously accepted a number of honours conferred by me in my capacity as Head of the Royal House Polanie-Patrikios. Several other members of his family, including his immediate predecessor, were senior members of the San Luigi Orders.
