HSH the late Fürst Moritz-Casimir is succeeded as the 7th Fürst zu Bentheim-Tecklenburg by his youngest son, the former Erbprinz Maximilian (b 1969).

Fürst Maximilian was an undergraduate at Cambridge University and post-graduate at the London School of Economics, specialising in economics with the secondary subject of art history. Fürstin Marissa is a graduate in theology from Oxford University and a post-graduate in art history at the Courtauld Institute in London.

The Princely Family's wealth is derived from property administration and forestry.

I'm wondering why the Fürst is succeded by his youngest son? Are the two elder sons not interested in their heritage?

The eldest son, Prince (formerly Erbprinz) Carl Gustav, (b 1960) renounced his succession rights in 1999 in favour of his youngest brother Maximilian (b 1969).
Prince Philip (b 1964), the third-born son, apparently acquiesced.
The second son, Prince Christopher was killed in a traffic accident in 1987 aged 21.

The assumption is that the family thought Prince Maximilian, despite being the youngest, was better-equipped and had shown greater interest in preserving the family estate and traditions.

On the photo (see the link) are Furstin Sissi and her sons. Can you tell which one is Carl-Gustav and which one is Philipp.
Thanks, Daniela
