Really?
Mussolini became a Duce when Italy was still a monarchy.

Everything can be compared, but that does not mean, that everything that can be compared is equal!

This here is surely not the thread for it, but Nazism and Fascism are not equal either!

If the property is returned, are there any back taxes that the Hohenzollerns would have to pay?

It is getting interesting!

New developments in the restitution case:

First, the Prince is no longer that much interested in a right of residence in castle Cecilienhof, instead he is looking for a compromise about the things he wants to be have back.

Second: In the State of Brandenburg are elections soon. The former east bloc communists, which renamed and regrouped as Party of the Democratic Socialism first and now call themselves The Left, are conducting a signature collection against, what they call: making a gift out of "property of the people to the Hohenzollerns".

Bradenburg's government refuses to give in to Hohenzollerns' claims. “Nobody wants to give the Hohenzollerns something,” said Culture Minister in Brandenburg Martina Münch, from the Socialist Party.

I can't really see much logic in the statement of the Brandenburg government. Hitler and his regime were helped by millions of people both inside and outside of Germany. Many of them will have done much worse things than the crown prince. Very few of them will have seen their properties confisquated due to this help. In fact, most of them did not have to take any responsibility at all.

I understand that handing out millions of Euros to a well-to-do and privilliged family is not a thing that voters & politicians enjoy, especially not in an election year. But calling it a 'gift' is making a mockery out of the issue. In the end it is stolen property, now owned by the German state.

The irony is, that it is called "a gift" and not "stolen property" by the former communists, who stole it... The communists are now a part of the government of the now democratic state of Brandenburg. They were elected, because the former communist east of Germany had a lot of troubles to endure. And large parts of the electorate fell for the prayers of social justice the communists sung.

BTW Not only the communists were and are hesitant, to give property back, which was confiscated under communist rule!

The chancellor of Germany right after the fall of communism, Helmut Kohl, a conservative politician, had the cunning plan, to pay for the re-building of the former communist part of Germany with the state property of East Germany. And this "state property" consists in large parts of "stolen property", which inludes property of the House of Hohenzollern. But there are much more folks, which were robbed by the communists... - Pandora's Box!

“The initiative by the Hohenzollerns comes as a surprise because Georg Friedrich has tried hard in recent years to improve the tarnished image of his family. The debate we’re seeing now definitely won’t have helped the family’s reputation.”
