Princely House de Ligne

Princely House de Ligne (from wikipedia)





The House of Ligne is one of oldest and the most prestigious Belgian noble families. It goes back to the eleventh century and owes its name at the village in which it originated, between Ath and Tournai. The lords of Ligne belonged to the entourage of the Count of Hainaut at the time of the Crusades. With the battle of Bouvines in 1214, they were described as "great name and men of honour" by the chroniclers of the time. Their progressive rise in the nobility began as barons in the twelfth century, counts of Fauquemberg and princes of Épinoy in the sixteenth century. Lamoral I received from the emperor Rudolf II the titles of Prince of Ligne and Prince of the Holy Roman Empire. There are cadet branches of this house: Barbançon, Barbançon-Arenberg, Moy, Ham and Arenberg


Abbots and abbesses

Within this house there were the following abbots and abbesses:
  • Gérard de Ligne (+1270) Abott de Cambrai
  • Mahaut de Ligne (c. 1275) Abbess d'Epinlieu
  • Marie de Ligne (c. 1500) Abbess de Mons
  • Marie de Ligne (c. 1550) Abbess de Cambrai

Ah, is that case the future princess de Ligne will make it into Euro parlament in a few months then . I am sure Mrs. Berlusconi will be delighted.

Prince Edouard is the son of prince Charles-Antoine and princess Alyette of Croÿ. His paternal aunts are married to a prince de Merode and a prince de Polignac.
It will be the first 'commoner' in the French branch of the de Ligne family, I believe.

So Miss Orsini is a Berlusconi sponsored actress.. nobody else thinks she looks as she had a lot of plastic surgery?
someone reports that the wedding is in September at Antoing, while on the 21 june there will be a ceremony in Assisi.
finally I found out that a Gheddafi's son was in love with her some times ago
