The Princess, who was born as Countess Ilona Esterházy de Galántha, was the widow of Prince Constantin, a first cousin of the late Fürst Franz Josef.
Before marrying Prince Constantin, she was briefly married to Count Miklós Cziráky von Czirák und Dénesfalva, who died in 1944 a few months after they married.

Hereditary Prince Alois speaks out for only allowing males to rule Liechtenstein, saying this maintains "stability" and avoids having too many members of the princely family.

Liechtensteins Erbprinz gegen Frau an Spitze - Vaterland online

The latter statement is an odd one coming from the regent of a family with over 100 members, per its website, and no plans to revise the House Law to limit the membership of the Princely House.

His first statement is odd too. Maintains stability? Do all the other reigning European royal families - which allow female succession - lack stability?

Well, I think Liechtenstein can only be compared to Monaco, since in these two countries the noble rulers have real power, whereas the other European royal families are mostly "the living colors" of their countries (that is at least what I thought until yesterday and the "parliament affair" of Boris Johnson and the Queen.)

And "real power" in the hand of a woman is a threat to the stability of the country?
There were many eminent Reigning Queens in many European Countries.

Not the woman is the problem - quite the opposite: Queen Elisabeth the Great forced the English men to become superheroes, Catherine the Great did this with the Russians. Jeanne d'Arc comes to mind...

The Problem seems to be: If the girls do no longer marry outside of the family, but stay on the royal list with their kids and their kids, then the families will be much bigger with much more costs and perhaps even infighting. Not every family has rules like the British Royal Family, where the non-members of the nuclear family simply fall off the civil list and get simply no money anymore.

But women were already very great monarchs without a doubt. (And the mother is surely the mother - always...).

Indeed, that is one of the claims set out by the Hereditary Prince in the above interview. The other, which I think the previous comments were discussing, is his statement that he is prioritizing the stability of the laws by not changing them to allow female succession.

At the same time, both are selectively applied. The House Law which he has no plans to change allows legitimate paternal descendants full royal status regardless of their degree of kinship, letting the princely house increase exponentially. Furthermore, the "stable" house law dates only to 1993 (it states "In parts the old provisions no longer met modern requirements. The family therefore decided on 26 October 1993 to repeal the previous statute and to adopt a new one in keeping with its traditions").

Thanks, Tatiana Maria, for this insight!

Yeah, the laws... The Liechtensteins rode to fame and glory and tremendous wealth on the side of the House of Habsburg. And when the Habsburgs had no male heirs, they simply changed their "iron house laws" - Maria Theresia became Archduchess and Queen. So...!
