Wilhelm IV (1852-1912) who became Grand Duke on the death of his father Adolphe on November 17, 1905



and Marie Anne of Portugal (1861-1942) who was
a Braganza Princess and a daughter of the deposed
King Miguel I of Portugal


Wilhelm married Marie Anne on June 21, 1893.

I don't know what exactly died the Grand Duke Wilhelm IV but it seems that he was very early reached - since 1908 and can be even front - of long and cruel disease which curtailed his reign.

i wondered about Princess Antonia. To what concentrationcamp did they send her? Did she receive a 'special treatement' there or did she live in barracks with other victims of the Nazi's? I never knew her children were imprisoned as well, must have been quite traumatising to them. What happened to Duke Albrecht in the mean time btw?

Is it true that she was arrested and escorted by Prince Josias of Waldeck-Pyrmont?

On July 27 1944 the Gestapo took Antonia and her three youngest daughters into custody together with Paula von Bellegarde,. They were interrogated about the whereabouts of Rupert, but fortunately they did not know anything. Editha was also arrested in Florence and brought to her mother and sisters at San Martino do Castrozza. They stayed until August when they were takrn to Plan de Gralba. Next they were transported north, and on October 13 arriving at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany and registered under the surname - Buchholz. They were assigned to one of a number of small houses in the camp which were used for prominent prisoners. Antonia like Irmingard had typhus and they were sent to the same hospital in Innsbruck. From Innsbruck they were transported to another hospital in Seefeld. Antonia became sick again and was sent to a hospital in Jena near Leipzig. On early April American army entered to Jena and Antonia was found by a military offices from Luxemburg. Next her brother-in-law Prince Felix of Bourbon-Parma came and took her back to Luxemburg.
The rest of her family - Princes Albert and family + halfsisters stayed in Sachsenhausen and on April 8, 1945, they were moved to Dachau concentration camp.

Thank you for posting this link. The historical facts seem to be correct - but just one thing: the site is a "Jacobite"-site, meaning the owners support the claim that the Crown of England and Scotland should have been inherited through the line of king James VI. of Scotland/James I. of England's granddaughter Henriette Marie, duchess of Orleans instead of his daughter Elizabeth Stuart (whose descendants are the current Royal family). Jacobites ignore that Henriette Marie renounced her claims to the thrones of England and Scotland for herself and her children on her marriage to the French king's brother while her aunt's rights to the succession were restored to her by Henriette Marie's brother king Charles II. of England and Scotland when Elizabeth and her son Rupert (who became a loyal, highly decorated and successful admiral for childless king Charles II.) came back to live in London. So for the Jacobites Crown Prince Rupprecht (Rupert) of Bavaria was king Rupert of Great Britain with Crown Princess Antonia of Bavaria, his wife as his queen. Thus the way to present the persons with titles they actually did not held.

Of all the children of princess Elizabeth Stuart only her daughter, electress Sophia of Hanover, left issue with unrenounced inheritance rights - through which the current Royal family is descended

Sad that all of her sisters had died young but there were some great pictures of the grand duchess with her sisters.

The people I mentioned in my prior posts are the sisters of Grand Duchess Charlotte. This thread was started because someone wanted to know why Charlotte's sisters died young.


Grand Duchess Charlotte abdicated 12-11-1964
Grand Duke Jean abdicated 7-10-2000

I think the Jacobite issue is far more complex than you make it seem. Where renunciations ever permitted under the law at the time?

Noel McFerron has done considerable research into the matter and is well respected. I'm not saying that I agree with his view. I don't really have a view - I consider it moot because it's an irrelevant issue. But, his facts are always in order. To me, it's very much like the Russian succession issue and the French. People on each side always have something to support their view.

On March 7, 1927, The Associated Press reported:

Princess Hilda of Luxembourg, a younger sister of the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg "is one of the wealthiest of young royal women, having inherited from her grandfather, Grand Duke Adolphe."
