Castell-Rüdenhausen

Countess Elizabeth zu-Castell-Rüdenhausen died in Uffing on 1 August, 23 days before her 97 birthday.
She was fourth child and third daughter of Casimir, Prince of Castell-Rüdenhausen 91861-1933) & his wife Mechtild, nee Countess von Bentinck (1877-1940).
She was the last child of her parents to pass away.

In 1939 she married her cousin, Count Friedrich-Wolfgang zu-Castell-Rüdenhausen, third child and first son of her paternal uncle, Count Hugo zu-Castell-Rüdenhausen (1871-1936) & his wife Clementine, nee Countess zu Solms-Sonnenwalde (1881-1971).
He was eight years older than she and a year earlier divorced from his first wife, Princess Karoline-Mathilde of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha (1912-1983), by whom he had three children: Bertram (b.1932), Conradin (b.1934) and Victoria (b.1935).
On 17 April 1940, their only son together, Hesso Friedrich, was born; unfortunately, 55 days later Friedrich-Wolfgang was killed in action near Portland, U.S.
14 moths after him his only brother Friedrich-Franz met the same destiny in Wiasowsky, Russia.
In 1944, within short period of time, sadness hit again the young widow: in action were killed also her two brothers: Rupert (in Romania on 19 August, aged 34) and Unico (in Latvia, exactly one month later, aged 21).
At the age of ten, she also lost her sister, Martha (aged 12; another sister, Maria died in 1980, aged 73, unmarried and childless).

Castell-Rüdenhausen

Soon after Countess Elizabeth zu-Castell Rüdenhausen, later Mrs. Duvelius, her stepson passed away:

Count Conradin of Castell-Rüdenhausen died on 1 October, nine days before his 78th Birthday.

He was born in Berlin as second child of Friedrich-Wolfgang of Castell-Rüdenhausen (1906-1940) & his first wife, Princess Caroline-Mathilde of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha (1912-1983).

As a boy he experienced many "whirlwinds" in his life:
In early 1938 his parents divorced.
In June the same year his mother married again to Max Schnirring, (17 years her senior) in the same year his half-sister Calma was born.
In April next year his father married again to his distant cousin.
And 13 and a half months later was killed in action in Portland, leaving half-orphans him, his two siblings and half-brother. (in the same year Conradin's other maternal half-sister, Sybilla, was born).
In July 1944 his stepfather was killed in car crash in Stralsund, a year after birth of Conradin's youngest half-brother, Michael.
In December 1948 his mother married for the third time, to Karl-Otto Andree, but they divorced already next year.

On 6 July 1961 he married in Helsinki Marta Lonegren (b.1939). Exactly nine months and one day later, their daughter Anne-Charlotte was born. They also had a son, Carl-Eduard, born15 March 1964.

Apart from his wife and children he is survived also by five grandson and one granddaughter, as well as brother Bertram (b.1932), sister Victoria (b.1935), half-brother Hesso (b.1940), half sisters Calma and Sybilla and their families (his youngest half-brother Michael predeceased him in 1966, aged 23)

Princely and Countly Houses of Castell

The head of the Counts of Faber-Castell is Anton Wolfgang Graf von Faber-Castell. Was he the first son of his generation? Hubertus Graf von Faber-Castell, father of Patrick Graf von Faber-Castell, I thought was older than Anton. Yet Anton is now the head. Does Patrick work for the family business and if so what capacity? I am aware that one of Anton's brothers is in charge of the Pacific branch of the business.

Also, does this family carry the His or her Illustrious Highness?

Thanking in advance!

I remember reading about the marriage of his youngest daughter to a count Khevenhüller in the early 90-ties. The magazine (Vorsten) said that the Fürst proposed a visit to a synogogue in the area, which was refused by many of the wedding guests.

His youngest son Ferdinand is named the 'hereditary count" in this programme where he shows his families properties. I suppose his two elder brothers were passed over because they married commoners?

Originally the oldest son Maximilian was Hereditary Count but he died in an accident when he was only 21 years old. I have read once that there was an agreement that Ferdinand was the one best suited for the Job to take over the Family business once.

Thanks; so that would be an arrangement like in the Fugger family? According to the Dutch wiki page, prince Alexander -the eldest surviving son- is a vicar. His daughter married a prince Reuss.

An article in german in the Mainpost. It focusses on the life of the prince. Apparently Fürst Albrecht was actively working on the reconcilliation between Germans and Jews. He helped the Jewish community of Würzburg in building their community center.

The article says that the funeral will be held in the weekend.
