Warren, I was thrilled to read from your post that the Dowager Princess Reuss is none other than Frida (Anni-Frid) herself of ABBA. I think the only celebrity I've heard to have married into any royal family (reigning or non-reigning) would have been Grace Kelly.

She has such an interesting story- growing up without parents (her father was a German soldier, her mother died when Frida was just 2) as a rather poor girl, becoming mother with 17 , being a member of Abba and having such a great career, and then marrying her Prince.

It seems Anni-Frid doesn't like to be called a "Princess". I saw an interview of her during the trip to Berlin and she seemed to be quite annoyed to be called "Prinzessin Frida".

Here are a few more pictures of Frida:

I have no idea either; but the princely house of Reuss is a rather old one.
So I'd say they have at least 1 Tiara .
But I really have no idea.

Don't know either if they still have one. Most likely it would belong to the head of the House. But there are so many lines in the Houses of Reuss. probably the line where Anni-Frid married in doesn't have one.

Correct me if I'm wrong on this, but doesn't the House of Reuss use a numbering system (roughly lasting a century or so) when naming all the male members of the family?

And also, who is the overall head of the House of Reuss?

True, they are all called Heinrich, to honour Heinrich VI, Holy Roman Emperor. At some point they stop counting and start again with no I, II etc. but I am not sure when that happened. They counted well over 50 when they did.

There are various branches, the head of the branch Reuss-Kostritz is Fuerst Henrich IV.

And one branch started to number new each century: Originally there where the Houses Reuß older line and younger line. The older line died out in 1927 with Heinrich XXIV. the last Fürst Reuß zu greiz. He reigned never because he was mentally il. The line reuß tzu Schleiz died out when Heinrich XLV was missed in the Second World War. The remaining line Reuß zu Köstiritz is a junior line of the House Reuß younger line to whom also the Schleiz line belonged. See Genealogy here: Reuss

Thanks for that genealogy page . . . . interesting to note that some of the numbers got really high

Yeah I saw that Heinrich XLV wasn't declared dead until 1962 . . . .

According to some articles Frida has fallen in love with multi-millionaire W H Smith heir Henry Smith.
"According to friends it was a coup de foudre for Henry, who has fallen madly in love with the striking, thrice-married brunette despite a ten-year age gap - Frida is 62 and Smith 52."
The couple have rarely been out of each other's company since meeting seven months ago, and Smith now spends most of his time in Switzerland where Frida has a home in the exclusive ski resort of Zermatt.

Excuse my ignorance on this topic, but is Frida still married? I have only just discovered that she became a princess (I have always been an ABBA fan).

According to the Osthuringer Zeiting the process that princess Woizlawa-Feodora and Prince Heinrich XIII Reuss tried to start to get 8 houses back in Gera not been accepted by the court, the case won't be re-opened.

Shortly after WWII the real estate of prince Heinrich XLV was confiscated by the Soviets, something which was illigal according to some, as he was a British citizen and foreigners were exemted from these confications. A court in 2005 already denied the princess and prince their claim.

A new document should however prove that the British nationality of Prince Heinrich XLV was ignored on purpose by the soviets and they hidden documents to prove that he was. The court re-opened the case but did not come to another verdict.
