Thanks, that would be great! I tried to find some pics on the net but all of them were quite old. Judging from the pictures she doesn't look that handicapped but of course it's hard to tell. It's great that she seems independent. In which part of Germany does she live?

If you click on the Picture that says "Die Preussischen Hohenzollern" there is a video stream. It says below to: "Klik auf das Bild startet einen Video-Stream". You can actually listen to GF speak and see a brief introduction to the documentary. All in German, untranslated.

Does anyone know if Kira Marina Liepsner's husband, Andreas Bismarck, is related to the Princely family of 'von Bismarck'?

Yes, he is. Andreas is descended from Otto von Bismarck, who was bestowed with titles and honours in the late 19th century:

-His Illustrious Highness, Count von Bismarck
-His Serene Highness, Prince von Bismarck
-His Highness, Duke von Lauenburg

Andreas is the son of Hans von Bismarck & Cornelie von Schwerin.

You can translate the page via Google. Just type in Kaiser, König, Bürger - Die preußischen Hohenzollern and click on Translate this page.

It's a shame that I cannot find the link to the whole documentary, Emperor, king, citizen - the Prussian Hohenzollern, it would have been a pleasure to see it. All I know is that it aired in Dec 2006 on ZDF/arte. If anyone knows where to find the link to the whole series, please let us know.

Well, I tried to find if they were selling a copy on DVD like some larger broadcasters do (Discovery, TLC, History Channel) and I haven't had any luck. If I find it, I will either let everyone know or upload it via RapidShare, etc...if I can learn how to insert subtitles I will translate it, too.

It's nice to hear the people talk not just see photos. GF's a pretty happy, accessible guy it seems...very upbeat. Refreshing!

Lately, my interest in the history of the family has increased (along with other German royals) and I've been trying to find more information about them lately.

I have many books that discuss several German houses, including The Small German Courts in the Eighteenth Century, which is mainly about the Duchy of Wurttemberg and the County of Montbeliard, but I have yet to find a solid book about the Hohenzollern's.

If you could recommend any I would be very grateful.

SWR Media Services

And it is very likeley that arte sells a French language version of the documentation.

I particularly liked the video because it showed a lot about his parents, the castle, Louis Ferdinand Sr...etc. It was very informative - like that he only really goes to the Burg maybe one month out of the year (probably for the Prinzessin Kira Stiftung) and even then, owns a house in Hechingen and doesn't even stay in the castle! I guess he prefers his two room apartment in Berlin! LOL.... What was even nicer is that he's a very accessible person and gladly speaks and meets with visitors to Burg Hohenzollern. The days of the aloof noble is going to pass with the older generation I think...

Hello to all. I stumbled on this site looking for an answer to a puzzle. Is there a Prince by the name Rolf von Preussen of Reuss?

Sincerely,

He can't be "of Prussia of Reuss" as that makes no sense. In any case, the Princes of Reuss are named Heinrich.

Have Georg Friedrich and his Uncle Michael with whom he disputed the inheritance reconciled?

These 2 ladies are Princess Felicitas and Princess Christa the daughters of Prince Wilhelm (1906-1940) the oldest son of Crown Prince Wilhelm and Crown Princess Cecilie and older brother of Prince Louis Ferdinand. He renounced on his sucession rights in 18933 to marry the non equal Dorothea von Salviati.

Yesterday night on the weekly "Anne Will"- show in German ARD-programme there was some discussion about the new German law about obligation to pay maintenance. One of the participants was Phillip Kyril of Prussia, great-great grandson of Emperor Wilhelm II. He´s the son of Friedrich-Wilhelm from Prussia who´s two times divorced (first to Phillip´s mother Waltraud Freydag and second to Ehrengard von Rheden). Haven´t seen Phillip for years (probably last time when he was a child). He looks so similiar to his dad it´s amazing! Phillip is married since 1994 to some commoner named Christine Soltau and father of six! children and told that he suffered a lot from his parents´ divorce. He seems to be very religious (protestant) and isn´t at all tolerant seeing all the other people becoming divorced. He wants them to make some marriage-license before marrying and he counted that the political economic damage of divorces is probably much higher than all yearly traffic-accidents together. He to me appears kind of very conservative although he´s only 39. He looks so accurate with his tie and suit and haircut. Don´t know whether they repeat the show on "Phoenix" or so.

Does the Hohenzollern Family own any other significant properties other than Burg Hohenzollern and Schloss Sigmaringen?
