De Amerikaanse prinses (The American Princess) by Annejet van der Zijl

I have purchased "De Amerikaanse prinses" about

Allene,
Countess Pavel Pavlovitch de Kotzebue
née Tew
formerly Mrs Theodore R. Hostetter,
formerly Mrs Morton Colton Nichols,
formerly Mrs Anson Wood Burchard,
formerly Princess Heinrich XXXIII Reuss zu Köstritz
(1872-1955).



Allene was -by marriage- related to the Orange-Nassaus and to the Lippes: her fourth husband Prince Heinrich XXIII Reuss zu Köstritz was a grandson to Princess Sophie of the Netherlands. His two brothers-in-law were married to a Princess of Lippe (the House of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands).

The line of succession in 1909, until the birth of Princess Juliana:

1 - Prince Heinrich XXXII Reuß zu Köstritz (1878-1935)
Married in 1920 with Princess Marie-Adelaďda zur Lippe-Biesterfeld (1895-1993)
No surviving issue.De Amerikaanse prinses (The American Princess) by Annejet van der Zijl

2 - Prince Heinrich XXXIII Reuß zu Köstritz (1879–1942)
Married in 1913 with Princess Viktoria Margarete of Prussia (1890–1923)
Married in 1929 with Allene Tew (1872-1955)
One surviving issue: Princess Sophie Renate Reuß zu Köstritz (1884–1968), who would marry her cousin Prince Heinrich XXXIV Reuß zu Köstritz (1887–1956). Their son Prince Heinrich I Reuß zu Köstritz (1910-1982) would marry Woizlawa Feodora Duchess von Mecklenburg-Schwerin, born 1918, still alive and whoi was a witness at the wedding of Princess Juliana of the Netherlands and Prince Bernhard zur Lippe-Biesterfeld.

3 - Prince Heinrich XXXV Reuß zu Köstritz (1887-1936)
Married in 1911 with Princess Marie von Sachsen-Altenburg (1888–1947)
Married in 1921 with Princess Marie Adelheid zur Lippe (1895–1993)

On itself Allene had relation to Prince Bernhard, she knew him from her Reuß zu Köstritz period. As Countess Pavel Pavlovitch de Kotzebue (her fifth spouse) she resided in a grand house in Paris and as she had motherly feelings for Prince Bernhard, she made him her protégé. For Prince Bernhard "Aunt Allene" was more than welcome. Thanks to him he, a simple stagiaire at IG Farben in Paris, could afford the lifestyle of a grand seigneur....

I am looking forward to read it!
