HSH Fürstin Melinda Esterházy de Galántha, née Ottrubay, passed away in Eisenstadt (Austria) on 28 August 2014, aged 94.

Melinda Ottrubay was born in Budapest on 24 May 1920, by Dezso Ottrubay and his wife, née Rosa von Schmidt. A talented ballet dancer, aged 24 she became the Prima Ballerina Assoluta of the Opera Teather in Budapest.

Two years later, in 1946, she married to Fürst Paul V Esterházy de Galántha (1901-1989), the head of one of the most illustrious Hungarian noble houses.

After the end of World War II, the new Hungarian communist government confiscated most of the family lands and Prince Paul was sentenced to solitary confinement for 15 years. He was freed in 1956 and left Hungary for Switzerland with his wife Melinda. The couple settled in Zurich, from where they managed the remains of the family fortune (mainly located in Austria). The Prince died there in 1989.

Since he didn't left children, his heir was his widow Melinda. Fürstin Melinda has since then created several foundations, with the aim of preserving the cultural heritage of the House of Esterházy, and opened as museums many of the family residences.
