It is also interesting that Princess Alice of Bavaria is descendant of Princess Sophie von Auersperg,who died at the beginning of 20th,she and her husband are related...

Don't know if she is pregnant though :-(

Ca anyone tell me(if somebody knows) which family is the present owner of the Auersperg Palace in Vienna...

I found this:"In the beginning of 2006 the Palais was sold again to an old European family."

Is this Auersperg or some other noble family?Thnx

Do Ala and Alexander, the children of Sunny von Bulow, ever take part in aristocratic events in Europe or do they pretty much remain in New York?

It is not known who owns the palais currently. In 2006 it was sold to a swiss investor group who wished to remain anonymous. In 2008 it was sold again via an Internet-auction. That is all that the public knows about it.

Palais Auersperg, Vienna

The Palace was built between 1706-1710. In 1777 Johann Adam, Fürst Auersperg, friend and confidant of Emperor Franz-Stephan and Empress Maria Theresia, bought the Palais, at that time still called Palais Rofrano. In 1786 the Palais was renamed Palais Auersperg.

In 1940 Prince Ferdinand Auersperg (1887–1942) inherited the Palais and on his death two years later it passed to his sister Princess Christiane von Cröy who lived with her family in the upper rooms during World War II. Members of the Resistance were hidden in the Palais and there is a sign near the entrance in commemoration.

The palace was sold in 1953 to Konsul Alfred Weiss, founder of Arabia Kaffee.
