Same here!
He has always looked like a "Prince Charming", but he's getting more and more handsome...
I wonder if that Ursula Leyden is getting the golden prize!

Rather than have the Hohenzollerns once again annexing the smaller German states, could we leave Prince Georg Friedrich safely confined to the Royal and Princely Houses of Hohenzollern thread.

Thanks.

Princely House of Schaumburg-Lippe

Since viewing the thread pertaining to Prince Alexander's recent wedding, I am interested in any information on this family.

Alexander is addressed as Furst; is he head of the family? I thought that he wasn't. He seems to be rather prosperous and Buckeburg Castle is beautiful.

Who are his relations and how many branches are there of Schaumburg or Lippe.

Thanks in advance.

Here you can see the genealogy of the Princely Family of Schaumburg-Lippe.

Schaumburg-Lippe

Alexander was born in 1958 as second son of the future Fürst Philipp-Ernst and his wife Benita, née Freiin von Tiele-Winckler. His older brother, Hereditary Prince Georg-Wilhelm died in 1983 after an accident. In 1993 Alexander married Princess Marie-Louise (Lily) zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berlebrug who later left him for another men. They where divorced in 2002 and have a son Hereditary Prince Heinrich Donatus, born in 1994, but are still on friendly terms (so Lily, her second husband Lambros Milona where also present at the wedding-Events). In 2003 Alexander succeeded his father as Fürst.

There are only 2 other dynasts, Prince Wilhelm and his son Prince Christian from the Nachod-line. Both are descendants of King Frederik VIII of Denmark as the mother of Wilhelm was Princess Feodora (daughter of Prince Harald) and his grandmother Princess Louise (daughter of King Frederik VIII) and also live in Denmark. The other Family-members all have not married according to the House-Laws.

I understand the family is one of the wealthiest in Germany and Fürst Alexander is recognized for his business acomplishments.

Here is his profile in Myspace:

Exclamation GLORIA and LILLY's Fashion and Style

Hello,

On

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...yle-14474.html ,

I have started a thread about fashion and style of the two German ex-punk-princesses, GLORIA von THURN und TAXIS und LILLY zu SCHAUMBURG-LIPPE.

There you will find many links to pictures that show GLORIA and LILLY and some of their female family members in "royal" and "crazy" outfits. Enjoy.

Many greetings,

A Friend

My opinion is that it was an arranged marriage organised by them so that Alexander could have an heir by a princess. They divorced not long after the lad was born. The pair seem to remain on good terms as Lily attended Alexanders second wedding.

Why would they need an arranged marriage? I think the Schaumburg-Lippe´s are rather relaxed about marriages to commoners, and Alexanders own mother is just a baroness too of course. Still I have to confess the thought crossed my mind too, though I can certainly see what got them interested in each other, they both seem to be very vivacious characters who enjoy the good side of life.

It was certainkly not an arragned marriage. The reason for the divorce what that Lily left him for her now second husband. Alexander has said that if she would had not left him they would probably still be married.

Was Prince Alexander's mum Benita also from a noble family?

Benita was born a Baroness von Tiele-Winckler; her father being Count Hans-Werner, and her mother Countess Elisabeth von Bassewitz.
(Why she was a Baroness and not a Countess I have no idea.)

It seems BILD had a short interview with Fürst 'Schaumi'. He says he only lives in 11 rooms of the 250 the castle has.

The owner of the dutch website 'monarchen.nl' received a letter from the lawyer of Mario Max Schaumburg-Lippe. In an article about the engagement of Mario Max's mother to prince Waldemar the website referred to Mario Max as 'fake prince'. The lawyer, a mr. Wagner (!) told the website that Mario Max never called himself a prince so that the website could not refer to him as fake prince.

The website says that Mario Max does pretend to be a prince, or at least wants to give that impression. He took as a 3rd first name 'prince' so he now is Mario Max Prince Schaumburg Lippe. In a press release by prince Waldemar from 2007 that is also the way that is referred to Mario Max.

I guess that mainly the Schaumburgs do not want to recognize Mr. Max-Mario as member of the family so the title of "Prinz" is only part of his name, it does not mean he is noble.
This statement is necessary, from Schaumburgs point of view, to make everything clear.
Fürst Alexander, as Head of the House, has the power, if he wants, to recognize him as "noble member", but this is not his will.
Similar things happened in the past with other member of German ex-souvereign families.

Personally, I never thought that the Furst was against marriage to a commoner. I agree with fellow posters. In my words, it is a matter of pretension. I understand the Furst's actions and do not fault him or his family for their statement, but commend applaud them.
