HSH Prince Hans-Adam II (1945- ) and HSH Princess Marie (1940- )

Prince Hans-Adam II On August 15th 2004 H.S.H. Prince Hans-Adam II entrusts his son H.S.H. Hereditary Prince Alois as his representative with the exercise of all sovereign rights pertaining to him, in accordance with the Liechtenstein Constitution.

Prince Hans Adam II was born on 14 February 1945 as the eldest son of Prince Hanz Joseph II of Liechtenstein and Princess Gina. The name Hans Adam forms an appropriate link between the past and present. Prince Hans-Adam I, who reigned from 1699 to 1712, was the founder of the Principality Liechtenstein, thanks to his purchases of the Lordship of Schellenberg (1699) and the County of Vaduz (1712).

Prince Hans-Adam II and his four brothers and sisters grew up with their parents at Vaduz Castle. He attended primary school in Vaduz and joined the Vaduz scout troop. Like his father before him, Prince Hans Adam II then entered the Schottengymnasium high school in Vienna in 1956.
In 1960 he transferred to the Gymnasium (high school) in Zuoz, where he graduated with both the Swiss and German high school diplomas in 1965. Afterwards, Prince Hans Adam II worked as a trainee at a bank in London. In addition to his native tongue, German, the Prince speaks English and French.
In the autumn of 1965, Prince Hans Adam II began his business and economics studies at the University of St. Gallen. He completed his studies in 1969 with a Licentiate.

On 30 July 1967, Prince Hans Adam II married Countess Marie Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau (born 14 April 1940 in Prague). They have four children
  • Hereditary Prince Alois, born 11 June 1968
  • Prince Maximilian, born 16 May 1969
  • Prince Constantin, born 15 March 1972
  • Princess Tatjana, born 10 April 1973
In 1970, Reigning Prince Franz Josef II entrusted his son with the reorganization of the administration of the assets of the Princely House. In the course of the reorganization, the private assets of the Reigning Prince were consolidated in the Princely Funds.

In 1984, the 45th year of his reign, Prince Franz Josef II appointed Prince Hans Adam II as his permanent representative and conferred upon him the mandate to administer the business of the State, in accordance with article 13 of the Constitution. On 13 November 1989, upon the death of his father Prince Franz Josef II, Prince Hans Adam II assumed the regency. Already during his time as the Reigning Prince's representative, Prince Hans Adam II was particularly engaged on behalf of an independent Liechtenstein foreign policy. Under his leadership, Liechtenstein succeeded in joining the UN in 1990 and the EEA in 1995.

Princess Marie

Princess Marie was born on 14 April 1940 in Prague as Countess Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau, the fourth of seven children of Count Ferdinand Carl Kinsky of Wchinitz and Tettau and Countess Henriette, born Countess of Ledebur-Wicheln. The family was expelled in 1945 like many others from the former Czechoslovakia and fled to Germany.

After the family's escape from Czechoslovakia, Princess Marie attended primary school in Ering am Inn from 1946 to 1950. She then went to the boarding school of the Lioba Sisters in the Wald Cloister in Württemberg for eight years, graduating from the Realgymnasium (high school).
In 1957, she spent an extended period of time in England in order to study the English language. For six semesters, she attended the Academy of Applied Arts, from where she graduated with a diploma.
After a short stay in Paris to improve her knowledge of French, she worked as a commercial artist for a printer in Dachau until her engagement in 1965.

The interests of the Princess focus mostly on the social institutions of the country.
She is President of the Liechtenstein Red Cross and President of the Society for Therapeutic-Pedagogical Aid.
She is also interested in arts and culture and is engaged in matters relating to education and upbringing.
Through their participation in all sorts of public events, the Prince and the Princess demonstrate their deep bond with Liechtenstein and their interest in the political, economic, cultural and sporting development of the Principality.

Re:

IMHO Marie wasn't that pretty when she was younger. She seems to have become more elegant and better looking as she's aged.

Discussions by two wealthy nations? Hmm. Prince Max is looking well as always.

Interesting article but Prince Hans Adam was all business. Was hoping to get a little glimpse into his personal world.

I can gather that he is very proud of Prince Alois from the full interview.

Thanks for the articles. They pretty much state the same info but with two different pics; one a wedding pic and the other a recent one.

The couple recently celebrated their ruby wedding anniversary. Congrats to them for 40 years of wedded bliss.

Oh, I wonder if they will have a ball to celebrate? Happy Anniversary!

Marie was a lovely bride! I wonder who is in possession of that tiara? That's not the Kinsky that the more recent brides of Liechtenstein have worn.

BB,
Isn't that the Kochert Fringe Tiara that Princess Gina often wore? I think it is.

Yes, you're right. I didn't know the name. I know Princess Isabelle wore it to her wedding but has it been seen since.
