The reluctance of President Nicolas Sarkozy to issue an invitation to the Royal Family for the D-Day ceremonies might be seen by some as related to the less-than-glorious war records of his own family – and that of his wife, Carla Bruni.
Mr Sarkozy, 54, is the son of an 81-year-old Hungarian aristocrat who, a few months after D-Day in 1944, fled to Germany from the family home near Budapest as Russian troops advanced.
After years of appeasing Hitler, the Hungarian government had entered the war against the Western allies in 1941.
Pál Sárközy de Nagy-Bócsa, left, father of the French President, lived for most of World War II in Hungary, which was occupied by the Germans
Red Army troops were approaching Hungary fast, intent on taking revenge on families who had lived surprisingly comfortably during years of Nazi collaboration and then occupation.
As members of the upper classes, Pál Sárközy de Nagy-Bócsa and his family had been treated well by the German military, keeping their palatial home in the village of Alattyán, as well as their loyal servants.
Pál’s family fled to Germany because they believed they would be safer among friends in the crumbling remnants of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich rather than among the Communists.
But when Pál returned home in 1945 Hungary was also in ruins, and all of his family’s possessions had been seized.
He then feared being exiled by the Russians to a labour camp in Siberia and so returned to Germany, with his mother telling Hungary’s new Communist leaders that he had drowned in a lake.
Pál settled in Baden Baden, on the border with France, and joined the French Foreign Legion in which he served, without seeing action, for several years and left prematurely when told he would have to fight in Indochina.
Moving to France in 1948, Pál reduced his surname to Sarkozy. His son, the future president, and his two brothers did French National Service in the 1970s.
Nicolas spent most of his as an air force cleaner, and never saw active service.
He would clean an administrative block in the morning, earning the nickname ‘the gondolier of the shiny corridors’.

As for his wife Carla Bruni, 41, she was raised by her stepfather, Alberto Bruni Tedeschi, whose family firm had close links with Benito Mussolini’s murderous regime during the Second World War.
Tedeschi, who died in 1996 aged 81, was a rich industrialist whose official biography makes no mention of military service, instead suggesting that he spent the war years composing classical music, and especially operas.
There was never any suggestion that his luxurious life in a villa near Turin was ever troubled by the Italian Fascists or, indeed, by Nazi allies and later occupiers.
Miss Bruni’s biological father was Maurizio Remmert, a Brazil-based businessman who had a six-year passionate affair with her mother, concert pianist Marisa Borini. Remmert was born after the war, in 1947.

a Wiki Peak :
Nomadic people (Greek: νομάδες, nomádes, “those who let pasture herds”), commonly known as itinerants in modern-day contexts, are communities of people who move from one place to another, rather than settling permanently in one location. There are an estimated 30-40 million nomads in the world. Many cultures have traditionally been nomadic, but traditional nomadic behavior is increasingly rare in industrialized countries. Nomadic cultures are discussed in three categories according to economic specialization: hunter-gatherers, pastoral nomads, and “peripatetic nomads”.
