    Correction for HRH The Gyalsey’s paternal grandmother’s parents: Ugyen was the son of Sangay Tenzin and Dorji Om. Thuiji was the daughter of Lopen Duba and Aum Ugay Dem.

    Correction for HRH The Gyalsey’s maternal great-grandfather: Ugyen Dorji Tangbi, not Ugen Dorji Tangbi; also, the correct name of his own father was Ugyen Tshering, Dzongpon of Trashigang

    Correction for HRH The Gyalsey’s maternal great-great-grandfather: Trashigang Dzongpon Thinley Topgay

    Thinley Namgyal’s title is Dzongpon of Zhemgang, and was the son of Tenzin Thinley, Khyungtrul Pema Wangchen, and of Decho Dorji.

    Rinchen was the daughter of Tshering and Aum Lekpa.

    Also, italicize the following: Aum, Raja, Rani
