Who knew a member from ABBA was part of a royal house?

I've also read she was friends with Queen Silvia.

Anni-Frid Synni Lyngstad was the wife ofPrince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss of Plauen (24 May 1950 – 29 October 1999)-the prince died of lymphoma. Through Lyngstad's marriage to Heinrich Ruzzo, who was a student at the same boarding school as the reigning King of Sweden, she became acquainted with the swedisch royal family and eventually became close friends with Sweden's Queen Silvia

House of Reuss

I am writing a book dealing with the battle of Kulm, August 29th-30th 1813.

There seems to be a lack of information concerning Henry LXI, Prince Reuss-Costritz. He was killed on 29th August 1813 while leading his French infantry brigade under general Vandamme.

Does anyone have any details concerning the Prince and his family?

She is his third wife; he was previously married to Baroness Elizabeth Akerhield af Margarethelund (b.1946) and Countess Antoinette von Arnim (b.1949); both these marriages ended in divorce.
By his first wife he has a daughter, Benigna (b.1980) and a son Heinrich XXIV (b.1984); in June he will become a grandfather.

Why doesn't the Reuß family use "von" or "zu" ?

I have noticed that the Reuß Princely Family doesn't use "von" or "zu" in their name. They were from a designated area called Reuß so why are they different ?

Anyone know why they do this ?

Unfortunately,there isn't any known connection between the Russler or Roessler German family from Bohemia with any noble titles or Reuss family...

Also,I know genealogy of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia and so far she doesn't have any Russler cousin in generations gone by which doesn't exclude the possibility of a family tie like the one that 30 % of people in UK can claim descent of King Edward III who lived in 14th century...

There is no area called Reuss. The family in its different lines reigned till 1918 in a part of Germany called the "Vogtland" - meaning the "land of the bailiffs" - the Reuss family held the land in the beginning for the emperor before it became their own independant country. It included parts of Thuringia, Saxony, Bavaria and Bohemia.

In the 1200s a bailiff from that family either lived for a longer time in Russia or married a lady of Russian descent (it's not really clear), so people named him Heinrich Ruthenus (the Russian) which in German dialect became "Reuss" (a Prussian is a Preuss, a Russian is a Reuss). From then on his branch of the family used "Reuss" as their family name and were created Counts and Princes Reuss in later centuries.

1929 Painting by Heinreich XXXIII surfaces

This may be of interest to the descendants of Heinreich XXXIII named in post #20.

I came across a painting for sale that is likely the work of Heinreich XXXIII. The subject is a dreamy NYC skyscraper canyon "Xmas 1929".





This work - watercolor and gouache on paper - is being offered for sale by Redondo Beach, California-based interior designer Anna Hackathorn here until September 1st.

I apologize if linking this is contrary to forum rules, but I assure you I have no financial interest whatsoever in this sale. (I would be happy to PM the info to any interested parties if the above commercial link is moderated.)

Cheers.
