Jo,
Prince Ferfried is indeed a member of a recognised branch of the Hohenzollern family, the (Catholic) Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen family (who eventually ruled Romania). His mother was a member of the Royal House of Saxony.
Warren's post was addressing now removed remarks, which were irrelevant.

Thank you, Landsmann (my mother's from Silesia, too, she came over to Palatine (the former Palatinate) at the end of the war :) ).
Okay, the information about his mother explains the repeated info in German newspapers about Ferfried being a grandson of the last king of Saxony.

Two of the daughters of King Friedrich August III (1865-1932), the last King of Saxony, married Hohenzollern brothers:

Princess Margrete (1900-1962) married 1920 Friedrich, Frst von Hohenzollern, and are the parents of Prince Ferfried;

Princess Maria Alix (1901-1990) married 1921 Prince Franz Josef von Hohenzollern (from 1933 Hohenzollern-Emden), and has the distinction of being the last surviving daughter of a German King.

You're welcome. Yes, most of my Silesian family headed, remaining about 50km ahead of the Russians, before the family ended up in Schleswig-Holstein.

Yes, it's sometimes rather difficult to keep track of the Hohenzollern family members, with 3 branches (1 extinct), and quite diverse dispersal since the end of the monarchy, they end up all over the place.

News about Prince Ferfried von Hohenzollern,
http://newpaper.asia1.com.sg/news/story/0,4136,107318,00.html

Plastic princess is royal disgrace
European royalty shun silicone widow's TV wedding to German prince

May 28, 2006
ON the surface, it has all the hallmarks of a fairy-tale wedding - a former receptionist charms a German prince, they fall in love, and will be married in a lavish ceremony.Prince Ferfried von Hohenzollern, 63, a descendant of the Kaiser, is scheduled to exchange vows with his surgically-enhanced sweetheart Tatjana Gsell on Monday.
Prince Ferfried has four children by his previous marriages.

Princess Xenia of Saxony, 19, who will also skip the wedding, said: 'I do hope that Ferfried does not experience a similar fate to that of Franz Gsell.'

hmmm...this is marrying a von Preussen? maybe i have a chance (i'm not quite as sleazy and flaky and I don't speak German with the accent of a 2-yr-old)!


Although Georg Friedrich isn't under any kind of compulsion to marry noble - do any of you think he will marry noble or common (like some of the other families)??

Prince Ferfied of Hohenzollern has difficulties to fulfill the sentense that he got a few months ago. He can not afford to pay the money for a ticket from London to Berlin, he can not pay the 3500 euros fine. He was also sentenced to 150 hours of community duty but he says he wrote 150 applications but was refused all the time.

Newspaper Berliner Kurier however asked around and found several associations that were willing to accept him. The salvation army for example or reading to children in a library.

Article in Dutch here.

I ever have disliked Tatjana Gsell. She seems to be not intelligent, only has money or glamour in her brain (that makes her silly) and is a person that loves herself mostly.

I have no clue but wife #4 is only 34 so she may be too young to have children

I hope there is more to follow since the whole affaire is so amusing, breaks the monotony and thankfully no one gets too upset about the issue......
Hopefully you do not drink and write!!!!!!!! (I had to buy a new keyboard twice, then I changed my habits......)

Prince Ferfried says he finds the people in Berlin disagreable, as soon as he finished his 150 hours of community service he will go to Vienna: 'I don't feel comfortable in Berlin any longer. The people here are weird. In Vienna they like me, I am greeted everywhere with kiss-hands'.

The prince doesn;t say what community service he is doing but he reveals it has something to do with books and cars.

The affair between Tatjana and Ferfried made major headlines in Germany for months, the interest only cooled off after they did a reality soap that was an insult for everyone's intelligence and the final straw for Ferfried's brother Hansi to exclude him from the family. Ferfried and his family are top class royals after all and this whole story was beyond embarrassment. Tatjana Gsell started making headlines as rich and bored housewife who had nothing else to do than spending the money of her rich plastic surgeon husband who had earlier transformed a nice looking country girl named Tanja into Tatjana, the body. Later her husband died under strange circumstances where she was involved (robbery gone wrong - she even went to jail) and then she started targeting Ferfried. Soon he was branded a randy old fool (poor but with a title) who even allowed another man be part of the relationship, another randy old fool (no title but rich), but it took way too long until it finally sunk in that something was very wrong. Until then he had not only embarrassed himself by doing silly photoshoots or interviews but also his friends and family. Thank god he did not marry her! Hopefully he finds somebody of his age and he can grow old gracefully.
