Princely Houses of Reuss


Arms of the Princely House of Reuss (Younger Line)


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

Hey everybody!
I thought I could start a Thread about Anni-Frid Lyngstad, the Princess Reuss here at the Swedish Section. (I hope it's the right place. )
Anni-Frid has been a member of the Swedish Popgroup ABBA from 1973 till 1982.
When she married the swedish-german Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss von Plauen in 1992 she became Princess of Plauen.

During the last weeks Frida attended several Royal Galas or events.

1)
Attending the Swedish King's, a close friend of her, Birthday Gala.
(pictures ANP)



2)
Some days ago she attended the POLAR MUSIC PRIZE

These pictures are not from a royal charity gala, but from the Ball of the Great Order of the Amaranth. The second picture is from Svensk Damtidning also (unless they've copied they layout, Swedish text and all), not by Se & Hör.

Prince Heinrich Ruzzo (b 1950)
married (1) 1974 (divorced 1986) Mette Rinde of Norway; they had two daughters:
> Princess Henriette and Princess Pauline (twins born 1977)

married (2) 1992 Anni-Frid Lyngstad (b 1945) of ABBA fame.

Prince Heinrich Ruzzo died of cancer after a short illness in 1999.

Thanks for telling me. I just changed the information.
Do you know if there are existing more pictures of the Princess Reuss taken during this event?

I haven't seen any other pictures so far, but who knows what will turn up later. Although I doubt the Ball of the Great Order of the Amaranth is very "open", so perhaps not many pictures were allowed to be taken. "Frida" was chosen to the honour of being the ball's Grand Mistress this year.

One interesting thing about the Princely House of Reuss is that pretty much every single male member is named Heinrich/Henry, and the girls usually have Henrietta in their names. (see here: http://pages.prodigy.net/ptheroff/gotha/reuss.html)

I wonder how they managed to tell them apart, especially since there are some who don't have middle names. There's one case where there are four sons all named Heinrich AND the father is named Heinrich. Two of the boys died when they were young, but there was a time when three of them were alive at once. Must have been VERY confusing! Maybe they were referred to by number?

Heinrich

The House of Reuss traces its descent from Erkenbert, Lord of Weda (living in 1122). His descendents were appointed Imperial Stewards by Emperor Heinrich VI, in whose honour every male of the family has been named Heinrich ever since.

The only branch of the family still extant is the Reuss Younger Line (Reuss-Schliez-Kostritz, First House and Second House). The third and current sequence of enumeration for this branch began in 1910.

The current Prince Reuss, Head of the Princely House, is Heinrich IV. His son, Erbprinz Reuss, is Heinrich XIV, and his son, born in 1997, is Heinrich XXIX.

Princess Reuss

There are rumours that Ex-Abba Star Björn Ulveus planns a Stage- or Movie-Project about the amazing and tragical life of Anni Frid Lyngstad-Reuss!
Does anyone know more?

The Auto-Biography of the Princess Reuss has just been released in germany.

On August 29th , Anni-Frid Lyngstad-Reuss can be seen in ZDF documentary "Majestät" about Queen Silvia and King Carl-Gustav.
The Princess gave an exclusive interview to ZDF and can be seen about 3 times in this episode.

Yes. It was Willhelm II's second marriage - 5 Nov 1922 with Hermine Princess Reuss zu Greiz (1887-1947). Hermine was a daughter of Heinrich XXII Furst Reuss zu Greiz and Ida Princess zu Schaumburg-Lippe.
http://pages.prodigy.net/ptheroff/gotha/reuss.html

Hermine's first husband was since 1907 Johann Georg Prince von Schoenaich-Carolath (1873-1920). They had two children:
Hans Georg (1907-1943) married with Sibylle von Zedlitz und Lippe (1910-2006) - 2 children and Henriette (1918-1972) married 1940-1946 with Franz Josef von Hohenzollern Prince of Prussia (1916-1975) - 3 children.

When I read Giles Macdonough's book on Kasier Wilhelm II he talks about Hermine's little daughter whom they called "the general" I cannot remember her name but I want to know what became of her. Was that the Henriette you mentioned?

Yes. On the time when Wilhelm II and Hermine were married Henriette was only 4 years old.
