I should add that Timo's widow has adopted several adults.

Might be all true. But I can't see "Frederic" being invited by the Ascanians to any occasion while here, obviously, there is some sort of friendship, at least recognition.

But then, at least for me as a German commoner, the Wettins of Saxony are of no consequence any more and the way the late Margrave dealt with the succession showed me he had no respect for ancient principles as well. So good riddance now, after Albert is dead.

Might be true? It is true. Timo was what we call the black sheep of the family. In the 1950s, he married a butcher's daughter, had two kids, and she died young. He had no real relationships with his two kids until much later as he spent a lot of time in a mental hospital.

Alexander became the heir only after the death of Prince Johannes of Saxe-coburg and Gotha, who was the son of Mathilde. He was the designated heir when it became apparent that Max Emanuel and Anastasia were unable to have children, and Albert's marriage was morganatic.

In 1997, Max Emanuel, Anastasia, Albert, his wife, Prince dedo (and also signed for his brother Gero and their stepmother, Virginia), Timo's widow and the three sisters of Max Emanuel, signed a family pact, legal document that named Alexander as heir, and head of the family. Timo's children were not party to the pact because Rudiger and Iris have never had dynastic rights.

Alexander enhanced his position by marrying Gisela of Bavaria. He is well educated and a successful businessman. Rüdiger has been in jail. his first wife killed herself, and has never been considered a dynast.

Georg Timo Prince of Saxony, Duke of Saxony...

[QUOTE=MarleneKoenig;1471828]Might be true? It is true. Timo was what we call the black sheep of the family....

Well, that certainly ist true, but you should look at his life in and after the war, most of which is known only to his family.

Timo, as his Father and brothers, did not fight in WWII as Hitler issued a "Prinzenerlass" which meant that no members of former reigning houses were allowed to fight (He was afraid of public opinion for once).

Timo worked instead as a Red Cross helper and was serioulusly injured when a house collapsed after a bombing raid and he lay under the rubble for a long time. I should mention that most members of former ruling houses did not offer their lives to help the "commoners" then. (some of this even made it to the German press in the 50s where careful research still finds it)

Through their war experiences this whole generation was damaged in some way and we should not judge them as we did not live in these dark times. After the war they tended to use their sudden freedom and to get carried away a bit.

Greetings from Germany,

Alexander

A blog with some information and pictures from 2013 about Prince Georg of Saxony:

Prinz Georg von Sachsen | corona

The blog seems to be based on an article of BILD.

Since 2009, the prince studied Economics in Aberdeen. He works as a salesperson at a store of brand T.M.Lewin. According to the article he would be finished in a few months. They expect him to plan a future in Dresden.

Margrave Albert, who briefly succeeded his brother Maria Emanuel, before his own demise a few months later, allegedly reneged on his promise in 2002 to demorganitize his cousins marriages- and make Rudiger his dynastic heir. However, in his last interview before his own death in October 2012, Albert claimed the title of Margrave of Meissen and the headship of the Saxon royal house. According to Prince Rudiger, Albert named Rudiger as his heir (see www.haus-wettin.de) before his death. Albert issued a public written statement in 2002, that the headship of the Saxon royal house should pass to Prince Rudiger and his sons- to avoid extinction and preserve the agnatic line. Based on this statement, Rudiger is now Margrave of Meissen, but Karl-Friedrich, Prince of Hohenzollern also claims the title as dynastic grandson of Albert's aunt, Prince Margaret of Saxony, relying on the Semi-Salic principle, while Alexander Affif-Gesaphe claims the headship based on the dynastic family ruling in 1997. In the unlikely event of a restoration, the people of Saxony would have to vote of the issue.

King Johann I of Saxony did not like his daughter-in-law, Crown Princess Louise, bicycling in knickerbockers.

Quite wrong. You mean King Georg I. Crown princess Luise of Habsburg-Toskana was the wife of later King Friedrich August III.
