Thank you!



After all these death announcements I was afraid there is noone left of the German nobility. At least the Countess of Lehndorff Steinort is alive and kicking!

Today Bunte (a German Boulevard-Magazine) reported about just another "Prince" of Anhalt, adopted by the notorious husband of Zsa Zsa Garbor.

I was ready to stop reading about German nobility - but you saved my day.

Two Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg cousins - granddaughters of late Prince Johannes of Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (1981-2000) & his wife Christine, nee Freiin von Loe (b.1927) - has got married recently:

&

Princess Louisa (b.23 June 1984) [third of six daughters of his third son, Prince Felix of Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (b.1954) & his wife Elisabeth, nee Countess von Meran (b.1952)] married Caspar Schmick in Bourbon Lancy, France, on 20 July.

Marie is the second child who marries; her sister Katharina (b.1981) married Count Maximilian Droste zu Vischering von Nesselrode-Reichenstein (b.1979) in 2008, whereas both her brothers, Philipp (b.1979) and Felix (b.1984) are still single.

Louisa is the third one who marries; Johanna (b.1981) married Robert, Freiherr Heeremann van Zudtwyck (b.1978) in 2003 and Theresa (b.1985) married Jurgen Hayessen (b.1981) in 2011.

Ursula Countess of Hochberg, née Countess of Schmettow, died on 20 October.

She was born at Potsdam on 4 November 1925 as a daughter of Lazarus Bernhard Gottfried, Count of Schmettow (1878-1967) & his wife, Marie Therese Freiin von Ketteler (1888-1948). In 1953 she married Karl Albrecht Heinrich Count of Hochberg (1912-1979).
She is survived by their four sons (and eleven grandchildren) the second of whom, Peter Konrad Friedrich, is apparently heir presumptive to the title Prince of Pless, the eldest son as well as his only son having apparently renounced their rights to the succession.

They both renounced in 2003. I wonder why. Its not as if they had married 'incorrectly' . Her eldest son married as his first wife, a von but the second son didn't.

Well, marrying a "von" doesn't mean that the marriage is equal - there are lots of examples of unequal marriages of German noblemen to women whose surname was von Something.
Btw, I don't think that the renounciations have to do with marriages; her eldest son Hans Heinrich married his second and current wife in 1982 and their son is unmarried, but they both renounced to their succession rights in 2003.
