- Ivan Skoropadsky (1646 – September 3, 1722; reigned 1708–1722) – was a Hetman of Zaporizhian Host, and the successor to the famous Hetman Ivan Mazepa, in turn succeeded by Pavlo Polubotok.
- Pavlo Skoropadsky (b. 1873-d.1945) – Hetman of Ukraine for a brief period of time in 1918, kicked out of the country by activist Symon Petliura ; (claimant 1919–1945)
- Danylo Skoropadsky (d. 1957) – assassinated by the KGB in London, February 23, 1957 ; son of Pavlo – (claimant 1945–1957)
- Maria Skoropadska (d. 1959) – daughter of Pavlo – (claimant 1957–1959)

- Olena Skoropadska-Ott (b. 1919 - d. 2014) – daughter of Pavlo – (claimant 1976–2014)
- Borys Tukhai-Bei (Borys Skoropadsky) (b. 1956 in Canada) – Son of the unmarried Danylo Skoropadsky, grandson of Pavlo, and nephew of Olena Skoropadska-Ott. After Danylo's assassination in 1957, his significant other Lesya Tukhai-Bei fled to Canada - (claimant 2014 - Present)
- Daniel Skoropadsky (b. 1998 in Canada) - Firstborn son of Borys Skoropadsky and Iryna Ustenko. Named after his grandfather, Daniel is the next heir to the throne after Borys.
Keeping the identity of Borys' father a secret to him, until Borys' first son was 1 year old, she was afraid she would pass away without confessing. When asked to access the grave of Danylo Skoropadsky, which was Olena Skoropadska-Ott's property until 2014, in order to collect a DNA sample to prove Borys is a child of Danylo, she refused. Upon the request of her own blood sample to compare it with Borys' blood she refused as well, and spread bogus claims of Borys being a con trying to usurp a frozen throne, lying about his lineage, and falsely claiming he is true heir to Danylo's position as Hetman, and Hetmanych of Ukraine.
In October 2006, Borys immigrated from Canada to Ukraine with his wife and two sons, in an attempt to restore peace in Ukraine, as the effects of the Orange Revolution were being felt at the time, and was soon approached with death threats, and robbed of his documents including his passport, whilst living in Kiev. Lesya Tukhai-Bei died of a brain aneurism shortly after the Skoropadsky's immigrated. Borys' two sons lived with their mother and her parents in Ivano-Frankivsk from 2007 to 2011. After a couple of years of working his way into politics, publishing a book which he presented at various universities in Ukraine as a guest speaker, meeting with officials such as Yuliya Tymoshenko, and being interviewed on part of his dilemma by several news stations, Borys was finalizing his painful process of renewing his documents.
With the illegal election of President Yanukovich, and the false imprisonment of Tymoshenko, Borys saw that his influence was not strong enough, and he decided to move back to Canada in 2010, working to pay for plane tickets for his wife and kids and their return to Canada in 2011.
The Skoropadsky's now reside in Toronto and the rights to Danylo's grave have been passed down to Olena Skoropadska-Ott's two daughters, after her death in 2014.
