And also Prince Hans Adam's paternal grandmother was born Archduchess Elisabeth of Austria; she also was a first cousin of Empress Zita (their mothers were sisters).

Then I found some I info about how well off the people of the country are and now I kind of want to move there.
Good for you Xenia. One suggestion, though, You'll have to know German if you want to move there.

I went to Europe in 1999. One of the places we drove thru was Liechtenstein(after leaving Austria and on the way to Switzerland). We had a half hour to sightsee. I went to one shop picked out some postcards and stamps, and became extremely interested in finding out about Alois and Sophie. A few months later, I asked my friend if she wouldn't mind looking up the 'Princely Family of Liechtenstein' for me on her computer, since I didn't have one at the time. She printed out about 4 or 5 pages of info. I got hooked on them then. I didn't see their castle in Vaduz though. Minor disapppointment. I also found out about Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus at the time because we also went to Amsterdam for one stop on the tour. My sister asked me: 'Who are those people'? pointing to a couple in a framed photo above the entrance of a building. I said I didn't know, but someone in the building told us who they were. That was nice to find out, but I still like the Liechtensteins best of all the Royal and Serene Highenesses in Europe.

Liechtenstein means "Cup of Light" correct?
No, my bad--it means "Stone of Light."

I agree. This is why I find them interesting. They appear to be a quiet and reserved family and I find this appealing. Many members of the family are noted online as being "unmarried and without issue." I believe at least some of these to be incorrect. One such member is HSH Prince Gregor Heinrich. I found a review of an Alaskan cruise that I believe he wrote. In it he mentions his wife and two teenagers. Golden Princess review - Seattle-Juneau-Skagway-Tracy Arm-Ketchikan-Victoria-Seattle by Gregor Heinrich

ETA: Happy slightly late birthday to Prince Gregor, born April 18, 1954. (He is not listed in the celebrations thread.)

I had learned that Prince Alois II of Liechtenstein (reigned 1836-1858) showed interest in problems of agriculture and botany.
He grew plants. Some of Alois' plants were brought by specialists from England and overseas.

I began to interest in the royal family of Liechtenstein when I started to interest me by royal families and figure it out.
What fascinates me most is the mystery surrounding this family. Just show up, do not appear much in magazines and know little about their lives.

It began in early July 2012(I'd read somewhere a post about Alois and Sophie's wedding anniversary).
Then I started to search information about the Princely Family and the Principality.
It is a very interesting topic for me
