Here is a link to the Theroff section on the House of Hesse:

hesse

Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld is at Part 3

The line was founded by Wilhelm (d1761), youngest son of Landgrave Philipp of Hesse-Philippsthal.
The Hesse-Philippsthal line became extinct on the death of Landgrave Ernst in 1925.

The current Head of the Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld branch of the House of Hesse is HH Wilhelm, Prince and Landgrave of Hesse, born 1933.

You must try the original German name of the family: Hessen-Philippsthal-Barchfeld. You'll find a German Wiki-article and a link to this genealogy: Brabant 12

There's an information about a book about the House of Hesse, but it's in German. Plus you could send an inquiry to the Deutsches Adelsarchiv at info@adelsarchiv.de to find out where you actually stand when it comes to your father's family.

If I can help with translations etc., don't hesitate to contact me PM.

Thank you so much for the information Warren and Jo! I'll definitely look up all of your suggestions. In that family tree you gave me Jo of Palestine, I found my father, even though my mother, siblings, and I are not listed on it. That was sort of a jolt of the heart to see.

If your mother has been legally married to your father and you and your siblings were born during that marriage, then you should check first this databasis: WW-Person as this is quite informative on the Hessens.

If you find your father, but no information is given about his family, you should write to the Head of the House and ask to be included in the family tree and ask which documents are necessary for this. Most data bases take the Genealogische Handbuch des Adels (GHdA) - today's Gotha - as their basis and IIRC it's the job of the Head of the House to see to it that the family trees printed there are correct and complete.

Maybe you find your father through´this again.

What is sauna sausage?

Also, what is all this business about hm being King of Finland, and them asking where is the princess of Finland?

I thought the Hessen were a German family, what is their tie to Finland?
And how comes he says his father is Italian?

In 1918, when Finland become independent, Prince Friedrich Karl of Hesse was made King of Finland, although he never reigned; he was the Great-Grandfather of Prince Philipp;
Philipp's Father, Landgrave Moritz, is the son of Landgrave Philipp and his wife, nèe Princess Mafalda of Savoy; He grew up in Italy, so I think that's why he said Moritz is Italian. Now He lives in Germany, I think.

The correct title is Prince von Hanau und zu Horowitz, Count von Schaumburg, originally a morganatic branch of the House of Hesse (Electoral Line of Kassel).
The current 7th Fürst von Hanau, Prince Philipp, has a son Tassilo, Erbprinz von Hanau (born 1987) who may fit the bill.

a showgirl of brazilian origin who became known on italian TV: with her, the austro-german gotha has, for the moment, lost very much in terms of sensuality but very little in terms of aristocratic allure

Are the nowadays Hesse all protestants? I know that some of the children of princess Mafalda have stayed in Vatican during the WWII..
And how about the Faber-Castell?

I know that Landgrave Philipp and his siblings and parents were Lutheran, but I don't know the religion of his children...

I NOSTRI AVI • Leggi argomento - Maurizio d'Assia figlio di Mafalda di Savoia
In this site is reported that Countess Elisabeth von Oppersdorf, the daughter of Philipp and Mafalda, is Catholic. So, maybe also his brother is...

What do you mean with "mediatic"? If you mean "mediatized", they aren't.
