Princely gathering at Burg Hohenzollern

So apparently there was a certain Concert Princesse Kira.

Lots of German princes. The last one is Georg von Prussia. I have no idea for the others, I let the specialist do their job... :p

Thank you for the pics Idriel, and the challenge. With the assistance of my magnifying glass (to decipher the tiny captions) and an Almanach de Gotha, here is the list:

row 1
1. HI&RH George Friedrich, Prince of Prussia, Head of the Imperial and Royal House of Prussia, Head of the House of Hohenzollern.
2. HRH Princess Christa of Prussia; Mr xxx; HRH Princess Felicitas of Prussia (sisters)
3. probably HIllH Count Philip zu Castell-Rüdenhausen (son of Rupert below); Prince Lelie Nicolo Orsini
4. HH Duchess Donata of Oldenburg; HIllH Count Rupert zu Castell-Rüdenhausen
row 2
1. HSH Erbprinzessin (Hereditary Princess) Alexandra von Hohenzollern; HSH Erbprinz (Hereditary Prince) Karl Friedrich von Hohenzollern; HIllH Countess Alexandra zu Castell-Rüdenhausen (wife of Rupert above)
2. Prince Raimondo Orsini; his wife Pricess Katherine neé Bagration; and daughter Princess Luisa Eleonora Orsini
3. HRH Prince Franz Friedrich of Prussia and his wife HRH Princess Susann
4. HRH Princess Christa (again); Mrs xxx
row 3
1. HSH Albrecht, 3rd Fürst zu Castell-Castell; Mrs xxx
2. Count Bjorn Bernadotte (Mainu branch; ABBA lives on!)

Princess Kira of Prussia was the daughter of Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia, Head of the Imperial House. She was involved in cultural and artistic pursuits, and died last year. This concert was no doubt in tribute to her memory. I understand her daughter Kira-Maria is setting up a foundation in her mother's name.

Good, but can you read German?

Warren, I knew you would be the one up to the challenge, but I have to confess I doubted the depth of your knowledge (or rather the strength of your magnifying glass). Mia culpa, mia maxima culpa!

Well in case you want more, here an article about the party:

60. Wohltätigkeitskonzert der Prinzessin Kira von Preussen-Stiftung

Bei strahlendem Wetter fand am 24. September 2005 das
60. Wohltätigkeitskonzert der Prinzessin Kira von Preussen Stiftung auf der Burg Hohenzollern bei Hechingen statt.

Für das diesjährige Konzert wurden der russische Pianist Dimitri Vinnik und das Amira-Quartett aus München gewonnen, Preisträger zahlreicher Musikwettbewerbe im In- und Ausland. Mit großem Applaus wurden das Klavierkonzert A-Dur KV 414 von Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart und das Klavierkonzert F-Moll von Cesar Franck aufgenommen. [...]

You will have to provide more information.
The Kaiser, Wilhelm II, was the last German Emperor and King of Prussia. His eldest son was Crown Prince Wilhelm. His eldest son predeceased his father in 1940, and had two daughters. Crown Prince Wilhelm's second son was Prince Louis Ferdinand, Head of the Imperial and Royal House of Prussia. His two eldest sons renounced their rights on their unequal marriages. Louis Ferdinand's third son, also named Prince Louis Ferdinand, died tragically in an accident during army manoeuvres in 1977. His only son, Georg Friedrich, Prince of Prussia, b 1976 is the current Head of the House and de juré King of Prussia.

Where is the Australian connection? And how can this person be the "official" King of Prussia when Georg Friedrich is the acknowledged and undisputed Head of the Hohenzollerns?

Any recent news on the..

Former Prussian royal families, I havent heard anything new about Prince Georg Friedrich. I also wanted to know if there was any news on the Hohenlohe-Oehringen family. I have also looked online and tried to find online magazines or newspapers about these 2 families, but can't seem to find anything on either. If someone would be kind to post links to magazines and newspapers where I could find regular information and newer pics on these 2 families, it would be greated appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, Princess Birgitta is married to HSH Prince Johann Georg of Hohenzollern (a brother of the current Head of the Princely branch of the Hohenzollerns).
He is/was the Keeper of the Bavarian State Picture Gallery in Munich.

I just thought so. Birgitta is one of our king's four elder sisters and the only one of the five siblings to marry another royality.

King Fernidad Frederick of Prussia is granted Official Royal Residence at Sans Souci

Now that King Fernidad Frederick of Prussia took over his family's Monarchy of Prussia, he moved into his Official Royal Residence at Sans Souci Palace in Potsdam, Germany. The people are satisfied with the outcome and King Fernidad Frederick of Prussia abolished the House of Hohenzollern to eliminate current competition. King Fernidad Frederick of Prussia then banished Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia from all claims to the Prussian Monarchy.




Best Wishes, -King Fernidad Frederick of Prussia

You can't declare the "abolition" of a family or a dynasty. Aren't you a Hohenzollern descendant? So haven't you just "abolished" yourself? What if George Friedrich launches a counter coup from Burg Hohenzollern supported by Hanoverian and Hessian mercenaries?

For goodness sake, this kind of malicious and intentional misinformation has gone too far. Sorry Ken, but game over. It's quite alright to be making a quick joke and then come clean and admit that it was such, but for the less critical members of the Royal Forums, who absorb an awful lot of information, you are misleading them entirely.
Warren is totally correct when saying you can't 'abolish' a family or Imperial and Royal House, it's simply ludicrous and beyond the power of legitimate heads of Royal Houses.
While I openly favour the establishment of a Constitutional Monarchy in Germany and the return of the Imperial and Royal House of Hohenzollern and the other German Royal, Ducal and Princely Houses, it is something quite unlikely due to the political stability the Bundesrepublik enjoys. However, the high regard in which the Wittlesbach family is held by Bavarians, and others around the world is certainly something to consider when thinking of how Germany would react to a proposal of restoration.

But, 'the people' (of whom you speak when you say they are 'satisfied'), would recognise the legitimate head of the Imperial and Royal House of Hohenzollern as just that - legitimate. Not only would the public acknowledge HIRH Prince Georg Friedrich as such, but the wealth of academics, royal scholars and related Royal families. They would never be 'satisfied' with the bogus originator of an image superimposed within a frame, who declares they enjoy Canadian citizenship.

Please, become a productive member of this site and contribute the acutal information researched and documented, or cease posting the highly misleading and false information altogether.

To the Administrator, Moderators and fellow TRF members, I apologise for the confrontation, but feel this has just gone too far.

I conduct scholarly research on the Prussian monarchy and this is one of the funniest things I have found to date on the internet. Hilarious blog too!

Thanks :)

"King Fernidad" is completely fake.
He posts this on all kind of Forums that talk about Royalty.

What is the current status of Cornelie-Cecile's disabilities? Where does she live and what does she do?

According to Netty:
Cornelie Cécile is, to quote Marlene Eilers Koenig 'Severely retarded'. Sam Dotson once described it like this (well he is a doctor): 'became neurologically handicapped as the result of a perinatal infection, encephalitis caused by cytorhegalovinus'.

Is Prince Georgii Mikhailovich Romanov not the closet heir to the non-ruling Prussian throne? After all, his biological father is Louis Ferdinand Oskar Christian Princ of Prussia. Louis Ferdinand has been the Head of the House of Hohenzollern since 1994. If anyone can answer this question please feel free to send me the answer by way of e-mail.
