They are such a lovely family and it would be nice to see/hear more about them.:)
I understand, but they have to go to weddings, work, out shopping, charity functions, something. Where are they. . .:(

It was a little joke. Nevertheless, I don't think he's the sort of person you would mess with. He has shown he can be determined and ruthless when it comes to protecting the interests of his dynasty. Not a man to cross.

Do the Liechtensteins associate much with the other royal families?

As a rule, everything the Liechtensteiners do they do discreetly. Most of the activity takes place out of the public eye; they do not need, nor seek, a high profile or publicity.
They are a reigning and ruling family from the old school, highly adaptable, and the last vestige of the Holy Roman Empire; contacts would be maintained throughout the Gotha.

Thanks again Warren. What do you mean about the "Gotha?"

I like that they are low key. That's admirable. But usually that makes photographers go into overdrive trying to catch a glimpse. They must be well respected to be left alone. I may have to venture to that side of teh world to see them up close :p

It's a term to describe the European Royal world. It includes members of the reigning Houses, former reigning Houses, and the Mediatised Sovereign Houses of the Holy Roman Empire [Habsburg Empire]; that is: all the families who are listed in the Almanach de Gotha, plus some of the grand aristocratic families.
It is unlikely we will ever receive an invitation to one of their parties.

I am amazed too that while living in Germany, the press doesn't seem to bother them. You rarely see pictures of the family at all. It kind of throws a major wrench in the royal watching of this couple, but I very much respect their privacy, and wanting to be left alone. Maybe when Alfons comes of age, we might see more photos of the family. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Exactly my point. You would think that there would be a paparazzi frenzy because they are so elusive. But on the other hand, it is refreshing that little to no scandal is associated with a royal house.

Also, posted somewhere within TRF, someone mentioned that they were voted favorite couple in Germany. Would be nice if a forum member over that way could post more info on them. I'll keep my fingers crossed.:)

Yes, Kerry. The more you clam up, the more ppl try to get something out of you so bravo to them for maintaining their privacy! But they must go to social events in Munich or wherever they live. Yes, perhaps an angel in Germany will give us the scoop. Or like I said, I may have to make a trip to Germany or National Day and see them up close for myself

Mediatised Houses

Keeping it simple... when the Holy Roman Empire (specifically the Germanic lands) was a patchwork of myriad big and little Counties, Principalities, Duchies, Margravates, Electorates etc the ruling princes owed allegiance directly to the Holy Roman Emperor (who happened to be the Habsburg ruler of the hereditary possessions of Austria).

Napoleon Bonaparte declared the Empire a relic of the past and the Emperor abdicated the position in 1806 (after adding 'Emperor of Austria' to his titles in 1804 immediately after Bonaparte proclaimed himself Emperor of the French). Following the turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars the map of Central Europe was re-drawn at the Congress of Vienna in 1815. Most of the little sovereign states were formally absorbed into the territory of their larger neighbour (not always willingly); the former sovereigns of the pocket principalities ceased to rule, and now owed allegiance firstly to their local King, Grand Duke, Duke or Prince. So in terms of feudal allegiance the dispossessed former rulers now had a new liege lord between themselves and the Emperor of Austria, thus the term "media" or "between".

As compensation for the loss of sovereign status the several hundred affected families were declared to be Ebenbürtigkeit ("equal") to the reigning Houses in terms of marriage eligibility and social ranking, plus other privileges, and became known as the "Mediatised Sovereign Houses of the Holy Roman Empire".

Hello, I'm new to the forum. I was wondering if anyone might know where there are any recently posted photos of this very interesting royal couple or their cute little son Alfons?

Welcome to the Forum TonyaR and I hope to hear from you again. Happy posting!

I'm afraid this is a fairly private family so we don't have recent pictures of Alfons. However you might want to have a look at these posts. Enjoy!

I think he is 5 years old. Angela & Max married in 2000, and Alfons was probably born in 2001.

Alfons certainly is an adorable little boy. Are Prince Maximilian and Princess Angela close to the Prince's family, and do they have any other children?

I think Alfons is their only child. I can't speculate on how close they are with the rest of the family. I do know Angela is Godmother to one of her sister in law's children.

I assisted in managing buildings that housed many top fashion designes like Carolina Herrara (a very distinguished lady) Jim Hjelm and other known designers I never heard of a A Brown as a designer I enquired and no one seems to be familar with Princess Angela (a former designer) Did she work for a designer? The Fashion District in New York has over a thousand designers some high class some just trying to make it while others barely keeping their heads above water. As for the photographers haunting down Princess Angela and Prince Max, in some cases reporters and photographers dig deep into matters before they write things that are not true because they can be sued. The Germans are tickled that a black woman of no prominence and to boot ll years Prince Max senior was able to penitrate the old Hasberg family. I assume that the Germans are fascinited with this love story. A soon to be middle age black woman and a young prince. History is in the making.

According to what I've read on the net, Angela worked for Adrienne Vittadini and also sold her own designs.
