The Teutoburg Forest has been in his family almost since the founding of the Principality of Lippe in 1123, and for centuries they ruled it from the now ruined Falkenburg Castle, which still stands guard over the woods.
Trypical Socialist ploy of making it a class war rather than what it actually is, a land grab of private property by the govt. I fully support the Prince, not because he is royalty but because he is a landowner trying to protect what is rightfully his against a rather dubious proposition.

Does he have any chance to win the case?

Princess Elisabeth zu Solms-Braunfels, nee Princess zur Lippe died at Baden-Baden in May.
She was born at Dresden-Blasewitz on 23 January 1916, daughter of Prince Julius zur Lippe (1873-1952) & his wife Marie, nee Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. (1978-1948); she was thus a paternal first cousin of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. On 15 February 1939 in Dresden she married Prince Ernst August zu Solms-Braunfels (1892-1968). She is survived by their daughter, Maria Angela (b.1940).

The new issue of ROYALTY DIIGEST QUARTERLY will have the house of Lippe as its Family Album. We are trying desperately to find hi-resolution versions of the two pictures attached to this message. Does anyone have them?

TED ROSVALL, editor

The little boy is Fürst Armin. The group is of Fürst Leopold IV, his first wife Bertha and their three elder children.


We are also looking for a picture of Prince Ernst August zur Lippe (1917-1990) - either alone or with other family members.

Why Was Prince Bernhard's Parents' Marriage Morganatic?

I am asking about the famous or infamous Prince Bernhard who married into the Dutch Royal family, not his father, also named Bernhard. The son was apparently born a Count of Biesterfeld and only later given the title of Prince of Lippe-Biesterfeld. (Possibly this gave him a place in the succession that he initially did not have.) What I don't understand is how his mother, Amgard Von Cramm who was a Baroness from an old noble family with entirely noble lineage for at least several generations on both sides of her family tree was considered an unacceptable non-"ebenburtig" spouse, given that only fourteen years earlier in the famous (I guess for people here!) Lippe Inheritance Case, Bernhard's great-grandmother, Modeste von Unruh, WAS considered an acceptable spouse, even though she was merely part of the untitled nobility.

Did the House of Lippe change its laws, raising its standards after winning the case? I have read that perhaps the issue was that Armgard was a divorcee, but this seems implausible for a Protestant House like the Lippes.

Can anyone explain this? Thanks.

The Ebenbürtigkeit was roughly indicated by the placing of a family in the Almanach de Gotha. The House von Lippe was a (former) Sovereign House. The House of Sierstorpf-Cramm was not. Then it is up to the Chef of the House to accept the alliance as dynastic or not.

In 1897 the Reichsgericht settled a dispute in the House of Lippe whether Count Ernst zu Lippe-Biesterfeld, at that moment the most senior male agnate and therefore the possible future Chef of the House, was a dynast or not. His grandfather Wilhelm-Ernst von Lippe-Biesterfeld married Modeste von Unruh, of old nobility but not titled. As a result Wilhelm-Ernst and his issue could not be considered dynasts, so claimed the contestors.

The Reichsgericht studied the Lippe case and all documents and arguments involved. In it's ruling of June 22nd 1897 the Reichsgericht stated that the House Laws required titled nobility indeed, but only for the purpose of the Fideï-commis, which is a specific testamentiary legate arranging that the bulk of the House's assets remain with the Chef of the House. That Fideï-commis was in the meantime replaced by another arrangement. The Reichsgericht found evidence and documentation that the House of Lippe considered simple, but old, nobility as equal. With this, there was no hindrance anymore to Modeste von Unruh's grandson to become the Fürst von Lippe.

Found this article on Marlenes Blog, Royal Musings.
Royal Musings: Prince Bernard zur Lippe joins German Navy
and the newspaper article.
Prinz zur Lippe segelt auf der Gorch Fock | LZ.de - Detmold


I always find it interesting to see what the German royals are doing and the Lippes are of particular interest to me.
