It is also interesting that Princess Alice of Bavaria is descendant of Princess Sophie von Auersperg,who died at the beginning of 20th century...so,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.

The Czernin von und zu Chudenitz are one of the oldest noble families in Europe and have married very well into prestigious families. Interesting is that two brothers Czernin von und zu Chudentiz married two ladies Kinsky von Wchinitz und Tettau. The most famous Czernin was the last Foreign Secretary of the Double Monarchy and played a role in various diplomatic affairs. Congratulations to the engaged couple.

Since his uncle Fürst Franz Joseph von Auersperg-Trautson (the husband of Archduchess Constanza of Austria) doesn't have any son but only daughters, Prince Johannes will eventually succeed as Fürst.

One of the reasons I was hoping for a marriage like this. The furst of the Trautson branch of the Auerspergs have continued to marry into the aristocracy/royalty.

Prine Johannes mother is a Countess of Hoyos. His Grandmother was a Countess d'Aspremont-Lynden great grandmother a Princess Of Lobkowicz and so on.

That is why I became so intrigued by royalty and aristocracy. The history, the genealogy, the heraldry, the politic links, the procreation and survival of historic dynasties.

Well,Countess Maria Fatima has very interesting and impressive ancestry...

Among others she is a descendant of King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia and Queen Luise von Mecklenburg-Strelitz.
