The House of Nassau-Weilburg

From wikipedia:

The heads of the house of Nassau Weilburg were the following:


- Counts of Nassau-Weilburg
  • 1344-1371: John I
  • 1371-1429: Philipp I
  • 1429-1442: Philipp II and John II
  • 1442-1492: Philipp II
  • 1492-1523: Louis I
  • 1523-1559: Philipp III
  • 1559-1593: Albrecht
  • 1559-1602: Philipp IV
  • 1593-1625: Louis II
  • 1625-1629: William Louis, John IV and Ernst Casimir
  • 1629-1655: Ernst Casimir
  • 1655-1675: Frederick
  • 1675-1688: John Ernst
- Princely counts of Nassau-Weilburg
  • 1688-1719: John Ernst
  • 1719-1753: Charles August
  • 1753-1788: Charles Christian
  • 1788-1816: Frederick William
  • 1816: Wilhelm
- Dukes of Nassau
  • 1816-1839: Wilhelm
  • 1839-1866: Adolf
In 1866, Prussia annexed the Duchy of Nassau as the duke had been an ally of Austria in the Second Austro-Prussian War.
From a morganatic marriage, contracted in 1868, descends a family, see Count of Merenberg, which in 1907 was declared non-dynastic. Had they not been excluded from the succession, they would have inherited the headship of the house in 1912.

From wikipedia:

Under the 1783 Nassau Family Pact, those territories of the Nassau family in the Holy Roman Empire at the time of the Pact (Luxembourg and Nassau) were bound to use Salic law, which forbade inheritance by the female line. When William III died leaving only his daughter Wilhelmina as an heir, the crown of the Netherlands, not being bound by the Family Pact, passed to Wilhelmina. However, the crown of Luxembourg could not pass to a woman, leaving the House of Orange-Nassau without a male heir. As a result, the throne went to Adolphe, the dispossessed Duke of Nassau and head of the House of Nassau-Weilburg.
At the death of his uncle, Nikolaus-Wilhelm in 1905, Guillaume IV changed the laws of succession and named his daughter as his heir; the only other male, male-line, descendant of the House of Nassau-Weilburg was Guillaume's cousin, Georg Nikolaus, Count of Merenberg, the product of a morganatic marriage. So, in 1907, Guilliame declared the Counts of Merenberg non-dynastic, naming his own eldest daughter Marie-Adélaïde as heir to the throne. She became Luxembourg's first reigning female monarch upon her father's death in 1912, and upon her own abdication in 1919, was succeeded by her younger sister Charlotte, who married Felix of Bourbon-Parma, a prince of the Duchy of Parma. Charlotte's descendants have reigned until the present day under the name Nassau and are also members of the House of Bourbon-Parma.

- Grand Dukes of Luxembourg:

1890-1905: Adolphe
1905-1912: William IV
1912-1919: Marie-Adélaïde
1919-1964: Charlotte
1964-2000: Jean
2000 - : Henri

Wiesbadener Tagblatt has a short biography about Duchess Pauline of Nassau, the second wife of Duke Wilhelm. Pauline was born 200 years ago.

Thanks for the link. I'm a bit surprised since I thought the Merenbergs were extinct.
