Jo, Thank you for correcting what I posted and clarifying what happened in regards to Prinz Alexander von Saschsen...wonder if there has been any newer articles on the subject.

Could you perhaps tell me what the article about Diana and Rüdiger was about? Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I did only just now see your question concerning prince Rüdiger.

The article says that the prince and his wife Diana have separated a year ago, but have decided to give their marriage another try. But it it didn't work out, so the divorce proceedings are going on as scheduled, so the divorce will be finally within the next weeks.

Diana claims she has only been the maid and cleaing woman while he is sad that the marriage didn't work out. He says he doesn't know where she is but the article alleges she is staying with her family in Ireland.

Hope this helps.

Saxony's Current Status

After 1928, it is my understanding that the Wettins continued to live in Saxony, leaving only in 1945. What is Maria Emanuel's current residence? Are they back in Dresden?

The Margrave and his wife live in La Tour de Peilz at the Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The family is trying to regain their properties in Saxony but AFAIk they weren't successful yet.

Wettins of Saxony - Current Status?

It seems that the Wettins suffered the greatest losses of German royal houses after World War II. The family scattered and they lost there property. Now, with the end of Communism, they are back in Saxony. Prince Maria Emanuel adopted his nephew Prince Alexander of Gessaphe as his heir. (Although now Prince Albert, Maria Emanuel's brother, disputes the succession.) Prince Alexander works for the Saxon government as a trade representative.

Did the family recover any of its holdings in Saxony?

Why did so many German royals end up in Mexico? Several of the Wettins and the Hohenzollerns ended up there. Was it simply because they had to go somewhere and the Mexicans agreed?

Not an agreement that I know of. But indeed many German royals left for South America, even before WII. My guess is that wanted to make a fortune or live a life that they wre used to, with servants et all, which was not possible in Germany anymore. Especially during the years between the wars the former german royals werent treated very nicely. I exchanged information about the brother of Barbara of Mecklenburg (nee Prussia) ith Arturo Beehche on one of the royalty forums some years ago, but sadly I lost that information due to computer failure. He seems to have known the Prince who lived in Costa Rica (could also be Barbara's parents btw). You could try to contact him on his website: EuroHistory.com

Schloss Wochwitz was the Wettin home in Dresden up to 1945. They were trying to get it back. I thought the matter was still in the courts, but I read on a website today that the case was closed and they lost. Is this true?

Smile Any News Updates on Prinz Rüdiger?

Hello

Not a lot has been heard about the whereabouts and activities of Prince Rüdiger since his divorce from Diana and his subsequent advertising appeal for a new Royal lady. Was this for real?

Has anyone got an update on this and his other current activities / public appearances please? What passionate projects is he currently involved with?

Does anyone also know where one may post official correspondence to him?
Thank you in advance.

Hi Opal2Amber,

I'm afraid that I can answer only the first question.

Yes, it was reported that Rüdiger Prinz von Sachsen was advertising for a spouse of royal blood. It is quite unlikely he'll find one. My guesses as to why: his previous criminal record (he served time in jail for tax evasion), the suicide of his first wife, and now this divorce from his second wife (a marriage that lasted a year).

A little bit of history on the night after the famous moment:

Prince Frederick III, Elector of Saxony was the Prince that was patron and protectorate of Martin Luther. Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg church on October 31, 1517.

Why can't the Margrave declare Rudiger, Prinz von Sachsen his heir since he is a Saxon prince in the male line, though morganatic. I mean Alexander is a Lebanese for goodness' sake.

Rudiger has a somewhat chequered past and has proved to be "unfortunate" in his marriages. Alexander Saxe-Gessaphe is at least "respectable" and has a wife of impeccable ancestry, her father being a Wittelsbach and her mother an Archduchess of Austria (Tuscany).

The great tragedy of the modern Saxon House was the death of the intended heir, Prince Johannes of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha, who died at the age of 17 or 18 in 1987.

Well my point Warren is that bloodline is bloodline and whether one is repectable and has fortunate marriages or not is another matter altogether. I also believe that there are several existing lines of the House of Wettin who could inherit the Saxony headship and titular throne. I think he's decision is unreasonable. But then again, these opinions dont matter to the Margrave, he solely decides, isnt it?

Hello. I remain curious about the fate of Schloss Wachwitz. I don't think the Wettins were able to recover it, were they? Was that a big disappointment to them since that was their main residence before 1945 - or at least I think it was. Did the family recover any of their homes in Saxony?

You are right, there are other existing lines of the House of Wettin (a.k.a. the Saxon duchies) that could inherit the Saxony leadership.

And as far as deciding who the heir is, I believe the Margrave does have the final decision, but the other male dynasts do have to give their approval (in this case, Prince Albert and Prince Dedo).

It should be interesting to see who inherits leadership of the Saxon royal house after Maria Emanuel's death.

It was decided in a Family Council a few years ago that Alexander should be the Heir. Also Alberto, Gero and Dedo gave their consent then. Albert has now changed his mind.

Hello,

Yesterday (15th April 2008), Princess XENIA von Sachsen and the Croatian party girl DAVORKA TOVILO appeared in the (German-language) talk show "OLIVER GEISSEN" ("Blitzlichtgewitter - Ich will reich und berühmt sein"). XENIA's appearance begins at the 26th minute.

Here you can watch the show:
