Szapáry-Hesse relations

The mother of Princess Michael of Kent (née Baroness Reibnitz) was Mária Szapáry, a Hungarian countess. Princess Irina von Hesse's mother is Yvonne Szapáry. I read in an article that Princess M of K and Princess Irina are cousins, but I can't seem to be able to thread this relation on the net. Mária Szapáry's father, Frigyes Szapáry had three other siblings, but all died at a young age, non of them had any issues. So the relation must be at least second cousin. Does anyone know how Béla Szapáry, Yvonne's father is related to Mária Szapáry, Princess M of K's mother?

Princess Michael and Princess Yvonne of Hessen are fourth cousins; both them descend from Count Josef Szapary and Countess Johanna von Gatterburg.

Cousins

Many thanks for the missing link, they are 4th cousins indeed. Have to get used to the fact that aristocrats tend to call "cousin" everyone...:-)

You're welcome!
Btw, the two princesses are cousins indeed, even if far cousins; and not only the aristocrats call all their far cousins only "cousin", I do the same but I'm not an aristocrat!

I am confused as to why they say he would have been the king of Finland. Wouldn't his father be the king of Finland if they had chosen the monarchy? And doesn't he have an older brother? So why do they say he would have been the king?

And why would he say that his father Moritz is Italian ???

Naturally he is german and had an italian mother, the tragically late Pss.Mafalda of Savoy,

That doesn't make him an italian

I believe the landgrave was born in Italy, so maybe he has a dual nationality?

I don't know for sure, but I don't think he was granted the Italian nationality.
Landgrave Philipp was a German subject; Landgravine Mafalda had dual nationality German (jure matrimoni) and Italian (jure sanguinis); the law in force at the time stated that children were granted Italian nationality if:
1- born from an Italian father;
2- born from an Italian mother, but only if the father was unknown or apolid or couldn't transmit his nationality to his children according to the law of his country.
So if Landgrave Philipp had both the German and Italian nationality (I don't know that for sure, but it's unlikely) then his children were granted both German and Italian nationality; but if only Landgravine Mafalda had the dual nationality, then Moritz and his siblings were not granted the Italian nationality dueing the war.

I think I saw Landgrave Moritz of Hesse and Margrave Max of Baden at the Royal Wedding of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge. If u look closely you'll see Princes William & Harry walking past them at the beginning of the ceremony.

Prince Heinrich Donatus Philipp Umberto von Hessen has given an interview to finnish women magazine "Me Naiset". Here is some things from the interview:
Prince Donatus says that being a prince means nowadays only that the family history is better documented than the others. We must earn our living. We take care of our domains and try to get the old, slow money to profit. Two of our castles has been changed to five-star hotels. We have a winery and we breed horses. I have a wife and five year old twins, a boy and a girl. We are in touch with the other royal families, we have relatives in the british royal family. I don't moon for monarchy in Germany, that thought was gone with the first world war. I'm satisfied with our president.
Prince Donatus loves Riesling-wine, because they produce it, and hates Liebfraumilch, it destroys the whole reputation of Germany as a wine producer country. He tells that he tasted alcohol for the first time when he was 28 years old. He also loves cars, he has an Audi. He is also proud of Germany's high credit rating, AAA.

A video of an interview of prince Donatus from his visit to Finland, 6th May last year. If this can't be seen outside Finland, the moderator can take the link away.
