Prince Victor-Otto of Bentheim and Steinfurt died in Munster on 1 November.
He was born in Munster on 24 July 1940, as the penultimate of eleven children of Viktor Adolf Prince of Bentheim and Steinfurt (1883-1961; his first wife died in a childbirth of stillborn twin boys) and seventh by his second wife, Princess Rosa Helene of Solms-Hohensolms-Lich (1901-1963).
He was unmarried and didn't have children.
He is survived by his siblings: Reinhard (b.1934), Marie-Adelheid (b.1935), Charlotte (b.1936), and Oskar-Arnold (b.1946), as well as by his older half-brother Christian (b.1923), current Prince of Bentheim and Steinfurt, and by their families.
He lost two siblings: Ferdinand (1838-2010) & Juliane (1932-2013); his oldest half-brother Alexis (1922-1943) was killed over the Mediterranean Sea during the war.

Curiosity: from nine living to adulthood descendants of Viktor Adolf Prince of Bentheim and Steinfurt only Reinhardt, Marie-Adelaide, Charlotte & Ferdinand have living descendants:
Alexis died in the war young and childless.
Christian has two adopted daughters, who are married and probably have children.
Viktor & Adolf were stillborn (and cost their mother's life).
Juliane was unmarried and childless.
Reinhardt has four living children, including two childless (He had five, including twins; the firstborn who bore his name died as a baby or was stillborn) and three grandchildren.
Marie-Adelheid has three children and five grandchildren (all from the eldest daughter)
Charlotte has two living daughters, both childless (she had three, the two younger were twins; the younger one died in 1992 aged 26, childless).
Ferdinand had two living children (the firstborn died as a four-year-old boy in 1975) and four grandchildren.
Victor-Otto was unmarried and childless.
Oskar Arnold was married but childless.
So many deaths in young age...three of the siblings lost children...so sad.
