The strapless white and red dress Marie is wearing is absolutely beautiful. What a beautiful choice for official engagement pictures.

Which family is higher, the Zu Wied or the Württemberg?
In the social and royal order I mean
Thanks in advance.

BTW: don't you realize an intent to match Elena and Laurent in the early 90's? they were always sent to the same weddings, christenings, etc

Isnt the Zu Weid family the Princely German family that was chosen as Soverign Prince of the Principality of Albania after it won independance from the Ottoman Empire. They were only the princely familly for about two years I think before WWI forced them out.

I like her wedding dress. Not one of my favorites but is reminsient of Princess Margaret of Snowdown and the Duchess of Brabants wedding dress. Even after 13 years, the red and white engagment dress is still beautiful.

Yes, you're right. William zu Wied reigned for less than a year (8 months to be more precise), but after the war, in 1924, Albania was declared a republic.

The Württembergs were Kings, thus they are a Royal House (HRH). The Wieds, apart from their Albanian adventure in 1914, are a Mediatised Princely Family (HSH).
