Prince Alexander of Schaumburg-Lippe and his wife Nadja arrive at the
opening of the Bayreuth Festival 2010 in Bayreuth, Germany, 25 July
2010.

What an extreme difference the pair of glasses is making in his case!

Good news about 'prince' Mario-Max of Schaumburg-Lippe. He features in the Dutch show about princes who are looking for a wife on SBS6. However, today the royalty reporter on RTL4 exposed him as a fraud in the largest boulevard programme of the country.

Marc van der Linden listed the whole history of the adoption, of the step father who wrote a book about being a princely beggar etc. In the programme you can see Mario Max in a palace of which it is implied that it is his, which is of course untrue.

Added to that, SBS6 says that it is shocked by the revelations. They received a family genealogy from 'prince' Mario-Max in which it seems that he belonged to the family by birth. They said that they trusted the prince... Marc van der Linden was immidiately threatened with legal action, as were other royalty reporters, blogs etc. in the past. Van der Linden added that he is not afraid of it, and pointed out that in The Netherlands it is a criminal offence to use a title that you don't have, but that in Germany after 1918 it is more difficult since officially the nobility does not exist.

Note that the SBS6 story seems not too convincing either. One quick google search would be enough to show that the prince is no prince.

Anyway, it is good to see the 'prince' exposed on television.

I'm really surprised this is such a big shock for SBS. They didn't do their research, it's all over the internet that he's a fake..

And I watched TRL Boulevard yesterday and I feel they made it seem they found out about it "the hard way"*, while all they had to do to find out was go online and google it.

* meaning detective work.

And the story continues... and gets even more crazy.

I just checked the blog of the Dutch ATR, and they pointed out that Mario-Max (formerly Mario-Helmut Wagner) threatened to sue the blog meisjemeisje. The blog listed the various statements by the head of the princely family and German media.

On Nov. 14th they received an email from somebody who claims to be prince Waldemar:

Quote:
His Highness Prince Mario-Max is fully honerable and Prins as son of His Highness Prince Waldemar out of the Royal Danish House!
As reason of a insane psychopath, our family is spammed by fabricated and false mean rumours since years.
read the entire email here (cc-ing presentor Patty Brard btw)


There was a lot of email contact in the days that followed and finally they accused the blog of blackmail and stalking.

This saturday Marc van der Linden twittered about Mario Max, and an entertaining twitter session followed, the schaumburg lippe twittered even to koninklijkhuis.nl, to say that Marc van der Linden lies..... as Noordeinde doesn't know the true story!

But there is more....

IDTV, the producer of 'prins zoekt vrouw' issued a statement yesterday, saying that Mario-Max asked himself to participate in the programme. On the same day the family threatened Marc van der Linden with legal action.

And today the story is almost becoming comical, if the comparison wouldn't be so outragious:

The mother of Mario-Max wrote on the website of the family, saying that she will report Marc van der Linden to Slachtofferhulp (victim's help, a Dutch organisation that supports victims of accidents, crimes, disasters etc.). A quote:

Quote:
Daughter in law of H.R.H. Princess Feodora of Denmark reports rude hating RTL Reporter Marc van der Linden to Slachtofferhulp: “He is discriminating and spreading false information about my family like in horrid campaigns in history against the Jewish!”,

This is going to be so much fun since that Mario guy doesn't have a thing to stand on.

I'm so going to follow any trial Mario starts, it's going to be a big bunch of fun and I think Marc van der Linden will also enjoy it. It will give him a lot of free publicity and he is correct without a doubt, so there is no way he's going to loose. It's a win-win situation for him.

I actually hope that any court (best would be a german court) will impose a fine to Mario-Max. This behavior goes on since years. This whole family is just embarrassing.

It is just crazy that they use "HH" or "His Highness" all the time. Germany is a republic, so M-M has legally the last name "Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe" by adoption. But as there is no nobility in Germany after 1918 he is not allowed to call himself "Prinz Mario-Max zu Schaumburg-Lippe" or "His Highness Mario-Max Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe".

To those able to read/understand German, these links:
(most funny, satirical show, where M-M makes a fool of himself)

How he behaved towards Helga Lee Prinzessin von Schaumburg-Lippe and got adopted:
http://www.reporter-forum.de/fileadm...lga-Lee_03.pdf

Alexander Prinz von Schaumburg-Lippe and other family members do not accept him as a family member:
Schloss Bückeburg

possibility of plagiarism of his Dr.-title: Hat sich Schaumburg-Lippe Titel erschlichen? - oesterreich.ORF.at

his german passport was a topic in the parlament of Thüringen:
tv.altenburg - Regionales- Mario Max beschaeftigt Landtag

Thanks for posting these links, Charlotte Amalia. The first article is downright shocking. Friends of princess Helga-Lee (among them princess Catherine Colonna) claim that he isolated the princess from her friends. Later it seems that the princess was escorted to the bank to withdraw large sums of money etc etc. In 2005 there was an investigation in this, but nothing could be proven.

He now owns a 'palais Schaumburg' in Vienna (possibly bought with the money that was intended for the museum that princess Helga-Lee had envisioned) with lots of golden crowns. Here he rented hotel rooms to guests for 36000 euros, saying that they would be staying with one of the most important royals of Europe.

Not much is known about the last half year of princess Helga-Lee, but she seemed to have been jetsetting with Mario-Helmut. She did tell friends not to worry, as she was just having fun btw, which hopefully she did.

--
The news of the idiotic claims of his mother now feature as the main item on RTL Boulevard website, and it will undoubtably be discussed tonight:

Nepprins opent strijd tegen Marc van der Linden - RTL Boulevard

What goes around comes around, I guess.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Now his carreer as prince on Dutch tv has gone down the drain, it might be time to focus on his vocal qualities. Here he is doing the background vocals....



------------------------------------------------------------

It seems that he is very active on youtube, there are several accounts that have posted clips of prince Waldemar and his wife, and implying that these are clips from paparazzis. It seems that somebody has a very vivid imagination to say the very least. It all seems quite sad, really.

#!

On the description of each video it is stated that prince Waldemar is a cousin of the Danish Queen.... I wonder about HM''s feelings on the matter. Since she seem to be close enough with Waldemar's brother Wilhelm I can't believe that she has too much patience for this all .

-----
According to a poster on a Dutch blog, Mario-Max stopped using the 'Dr' in front of his name half a year ago. This probably has to do with the 2nd link posted by CharlotteAmalia, in which there are questions about copyright matters around his thesis.

-----
A new headline on RTL Boulevard: 'Marc van der Linden speaks with fake prince'.... tonight. More

I have the same feeling.
It is also strange how many webpages they have. They always claim to be very important, well known and very close to the royal families in Europe.

i also wonder if Waldemar Prinz zu S-L is still in the British line of succession. (He claims this Britischer Thronfolger Prinz Waldemar gratuliert S.K.H. Prinz William und Kate « HH. Prince Waldemar zu Schaumburg-Lippe, SHD Waldemar Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe & Family ). I don't know if Gertraud-Antonia Wagner-Schöppl is protestant. But born in Austria, she could easily be catholic.

I thought about this before, too. Would Margrethe ever sue a member of the wide family for misusing her name?

I doubt the Queen will comment on the matter.

Why should he...his claims are reflection on him and there is no need to acknowledge IMO.

Its a question that has no real answer but I will ask it nonetheless;

Why do people in 2010 with all the access to the documents, forensic science, DNA, the internet, pics, etc...why do people insist on pretending to be someone else? You will be found out quicker than it takes me to type this message.

You are right - i also don't get why they/he is behaving in that way.
M-M is not really pretending to be someone else. It is true - at least from the research in the internet - that he has the last name "Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe" by adoption and that Waldemar is related to QMargrethe.
But on the other hand they/he is overdoing it und blowing it up. And he is pretending to be more famous and in touch with whoever royal.

There are some adopted princes in Germany with questionable background. But Markus Prinz von Anhalt, who is somehow linked to the red-light district, is clearly a fake noble person and at least he is not trying to sue a TV-moderator for saying the truth.

This is too good to keep from you, so here a clip of 'prince' Mario-Max.

Nepprins opent strijd tegen Marc van der Linden - RTL Boulevard

The mother of Mario-Max said that Marc van der Linden was not a gentleman as she never contacted them. So today he called the 'prince'.... the conversation took 45 minutes and ended the van der Linden throwing the horn on the telephone. The conversation on the phone starts around 2/3rd of the clip. Mario-Max is furious, and although he doesn't deny that he is adopted he screams: 'you have to call me your highness'. The 'prince' again compared the whole thing to the holocaust.

Note that van der Linden also noted that all letters, written by either MM, Waldemar or Gertraud-Antonia, have the same style and spelling mistakes....

And as a final result, the presentor of the programme maliciously remarked that prince looking for a wife might be a completely wrong format for Mario-Helmut .

IDTV and SBS Broadcasting both distanced themselves from the 'prince'. A bit hypocritical IMHO, since they will probably continue to show the programme and because in the last season there was also a fraud (as are in most of these programmes); somebody posed in a hotel and claimed that it was his palace.

------------

Fortunately the prince doesn't hold a grudge, on his own website he released a statement:

Quote:
" I love the dutch people, they are a sweet and nice nation! And thanks for the hundreds of mails every day and all your support!"
http://www.news4press.com/-His-Highn...mb_564964.html

Isn't he a dear?

It is great that Prince Max-Mario has been identified as fraud. "His Highness" has to fully understand that his behaviour is unbecoming to any member of any noble house as well as his claims are groundless. Hopefully he will be consigned to oblivion.

Max-Mario is not really a fraud. Okay, he is not "noble" according to German and Austrian law because nobody is "noble" any longer in either country. Thus, Fuerst Alexander is not noble, either. There are no Highnesses anymore in ether country.

As for his name: his mother married a real prince who in turn adopted her son and gave him his name. So he really is according to law Dr. Schaumburg-Lippe (Dr. because he as well as his mother have been promoted by a officially accepted university to be doctores - which is not an easy thing in either Germany or Austria).

BTW: it was reported that his academic title is under dispute. Last december the university Innsbruck declared the inquest into the doctoral thesis as ended because the thesis has been found to be okay according to Austrian university law. The requirements for § 74 UG (Nichtigerklärung der Beurteilung der Dissertation = invalidity of appraisal for the doctoral thesis) sowie § 89 UG (Widerruf des akademischen Grades = repeal of academical degree) have not been met, so Max-Mario is still rightfully using the title of "Doktor".

Here's the link to the official press portal of Innsbruck university: http://www.uibk.ac.at/public-relatio...v/2010/122201/

As he is Austrian, his name is not "Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe" because Austrian law does not recognize former noble titles as part of the name. If he was German, he would officially be able to use the princely style as part of his name.

According to German family law he is a member of the family of Schaumburg-Lippe. That the family does not recognize him and his mother is a different thing.

OTOH taking up the style "Prince" as a third christian name in order to be able to use it as part of the name, namely in English speaking countries, is very, very tacky. But people do a lot to further their business (Sarah York comes to mind)... that's how it is.
