Arms of the Princes of Bentheim-Tecklenburg

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).
He married in 2000 Marissa Fortescue (b 1973), granddaughter of the Earl Fortescue, with whom he has four children:

• HSH Erbprinz Moritz Friedrich-Carl (b 2003)
• HSH Princess Helena (b 2005)
• HSH Princess Anna Elisabeth (b 2007)
• HSH Prince Carl-Emil (b 2010)

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.

Formal title
Fürst zu Bentheim-Tecklenburg, Count of Tecklenburg and Limburg, Lord of Rheda, Wevelinghofen, Hoya, Alpen and Halpenstein, Hereditary Bailiff of Cologne.

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

Marlene has some information about hereditary count Ludwig of Waldburg Wolfegg und Woldsee. He was supposed to have married the Indonesian celebrity Jessica Iskandar earlier this year. However, he denies that such a marriage ever took place while Jessica Iskander claims that she does have evidence.

Marlene has written several blog posts about the matter:

Royal Musings: Ludwig von Waldburg wants marriage annulled. Claims he never married Jessica

Royal Musings: A fake marriage: Jessica and Ludwig

Royal Musings: Update: Ludwig says he was not present for wedding

On May 23 Prince Felix of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg married Carina Müller von Blumencron. Royal Musings has some nice pictures of the bridal couple.

RIP Fürst Philipp Reinhard.

Is there a rule for out of wedlock born heirs in this family? Is Prince Louis the new heir?

That's an interesting question, a very interesting one, and honestly I don't know the answer.
I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.

The funeral of Duchess Alexandra of Croÿ has been celebrated at the Curch of St. Jacobus in Dülmen last saturday 3 October 2015.
It has been attended by about 600 mourners, and the Mass was celebrated by Father Paul Habsburg (aka Archduke Paul of Austria, the son of Archduke Michael and Archduchess Christiana).
The Duchess has later been buried in the vault of the Dukes of Croÿ in Dülmen.

Can anyone tell me why the Duke of Hohenberg is not the head of the house of Habsburg-Lorraine? They seem to be the senior agnates! Morganatic (for the thrones of Austria, Hungary, etc.) but legitimate, and descend from the eldest brother. Besides, the old house of Lorraine never outlawed morganatic marriages. Seems to me like the same situation of Bourbon and Bourbon-Spain. Infante Jaime, Duke of Segovia, gave up the Spanish throne, but his line is the senior line, and Louis Alphones, Duke of Anjou is from him, so he is the head of the Capetians (Robertians).

The House of Lorraine had as Frenchmen a more relaxed view on what constitutes an equal marriage than the German princely houses but as soon as they merged with the House of Habsburg and ascended the imperial thrones of first the Holy Roman Empire and then Austria that changed. There has been some grumblings about the Hohenbergs being in line to the headship of the House of Lorraine but fact is that ever since the merger of the two ancient houses they've been considered as one and have been subjected to the Germanic rules of ebenbürtigkeit.

I wish they will put forward a claim. Looks to me they suffered because both their parents died, and noone stood up for them. If I were the Duke, I will just present myself as 'Head of the House of Lorraine', as the senior agnate, and let others prove their claims to it!
