The Thurn und Taxis are a Princely Family. They were ennobled in 1512, and became Princes of the Holy Roman Empire in 1681 and 1695.
'Recognition' of their titles and style of Serene Highness is up to the individual.

I read in a book about Empress Elizabeth of Austria ("Sissi"), that her elder sister, Helena, married a Thurn-und-Taxis ...Someone knows something more concrete about this couple or have some photos of them? I search them, but I couldn't find anything.

Of course...Thanks for those who finds a little info or a pic and would post them here.

Vanesa.

The Empress Elisabeth came from a large family of nine children of the Dukes in Bavaria branch of the Wittelsbachs.
Her elder sister, Duchess Helene (1834-1890), married in 1858 Maximilian Anton (1831-1867), Hereditary Prince (Erbprinz) of Thurn und Taxis, eldest son of Fürst Maximilian Karl, the 6th Prince. Their children:

• Fürst Maximilian Maria (1862-1885)
• Fürst Albert (1867-1952) married Archduchess Margarethe of Austria
• Princess Luisa (1859-1948) married Prince Friedrich of Hohenzollern (-Sigmaringen)
• Princess Elisabeth (1860-1881) married Infante Miguel of Portugal, Duke of Bragança, Pretender to the throne of Portugal.

Thank you, Warren. Your info is very useful for me. I didn't know that the littlest Helene's daughter was married to the Infante Miguel Bragança of Portugal, pretender of the throne...And she named her daughter after her famous sister, "Elizabeth". It seems that the Wittelsbachs were a very united family...:)

You'd think the insurance premiums would scare most companies away from letting him race in their cars. That's what's stopping the current Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery. I can't help but wonder what Gloria thinks about her only son taking up the sport.

Sophie of Bavaria

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how Princess Sophie of Leichtenstein (Bavaria) and the Thurn und Taxi families are related since Princess Gloria is of the Bavarian Royal family also?

Thank You.

Thank You.
Is Gloria related to the Bavarian Royals? I only knew that she was a Countess Schoenburg-Glauchau which was not Bavarian but Saxonian nobility. I've never heard of any relations to the Bavarian Royals. It is true that Duchess Helene in Bavaria (though from a minor branch of the Wittelsbachs, she was the sister of empress Elisabeth (Sissi) and a grand-daughter of the Bavarian king through her mother, princess Ludovica von Bayern) married into the house of Thurn und Taxis, thus there is a relation dating back to about 150 years ago, but with Gloria? I don't know....

Thank You anyway, I think I might be a little confused. I read somewhere just recently that her late husband Johannes was somehow related to the Bavarian Royals. I may have understood incorrectly however, I do know that she now has a home/castle in Bavaria! Perhaps I am wrong. I'll research that more thoroughly and attentively. Thank You ..

The late Prince Johannes and the Bavarians are also related through the Royal House of Portugal (Johannes mother was a Portugese Princess). But there is no direct blood line connecting Gloria and the Bavarians.

The Thurn und Taxis are based in Regensburg, which is in Bavaria, which may have contributed to the confusion.

The Thurn und Taxis

Ahh,

I can see how a newbie like me could confuse oneself. Thank You both Katie and Warren for placing this all into perspective about this family for me. I'll keep "plugging" away at all these families relations. :-) :p

Cheers
MM

There was a question recently on the American game show Jeopardy! about the world's youngest billionaire (I don't quite remember the wording) and the answer referred to a Prince in this family. I was out of the room and didn't hear the correct answer ... does anybody know?
