Warren recommended these books on another thread:

Crowns in Conflict - The Triumph and the Tragedy of European Monarchy 1910-1918" by Theo Aronson. This book details the personal relationships between the reigning monarchs and families in the leadup to WWI and how they were torn apart during the war;

"War and the Royal Houses of Europe in the Twentieth Century" by Anthony Devere-Summers, which covers the relationships and fate of the Monarchies during both World Wars;

Christine von Wangenheim

Who knows anything about this Countess? Apparently, she's an ex-girlfriend of Prince Felipe de Asturias and passed the Bar in the US. What else is known? I have hotlinked a photo I believe is her (she is referenced without the "von").

Sorry, I do not have access to larger photos.

She's no countess but a Freiin (German Baroness). I once used to work with a Freiherr von Wangenheim, they are an old but impoverished family.

In addition I found the following entry on:Ortenburg

Friedrich Graf zu Ortenberg (b.Oldenburg 11 Jan 1974); m.Potsdam 27 Aug 2005 Christine Frn v.Wangenheim (b.Köln 11 Sep 1978)

Here is an old article about Christine Wangenheim - SUR in English
As it says that she's from Berlin, she is probably the one who is now married to Graf zu Ortenberg.

I found another mentioning of a "Christine zu Ortenberg" who works for the headhunter firm of Kienbaum Consulting in Hannover.

Hope this helps.

Princess Robijn - if I read the very small caption under the picture with HRH Sigismund v. Preussen correctly - the other man is her fiance, Philip Medow. That probably explains why she is kissing him in other pictures!!

London: hundreds attend engagement party of Austrian Princess and Papal Knight

The engagement party of Austrian Princess Marie-Therese von Hohenberg to Anthony Bailey (leader of Gordon Brown's new Faith Task Force), at St. John's, last June 11th, was a glittering affair, with representatives of many royal families from across Europe.

Among the guests were the bride's father, Prince Peter von Hohenberg (a grandson of the 1914 assasinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria) and an array of royalty from over twelve dynasties including Britain's Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor.

The counts Zichy-Thyssen?

I don't know if I'm posting in the right place? But yes, does anyone know about the counts Zichy-Thyssen? All I know is that they are descendants of Fritz Thyssen, and cousins? to H. Thyssen-Bornemiza. Also, that they are Hungarian counts. Anybody have more info?

Dear Ortino,
Here is a link to a website that mentions that Anita Thyssen (d.1990; daughter of Fritz) married Hungarian Count Gabor Zichy (d.1972). The two sons that resulted from this union, Federico (b.1937) and Claudio (b.1942), bear the name Zichy-Thyssen.

German TV announced that Diana Bernadotte (25) separated from her husband, the chimney-cleaner Bernd Grawe (41) and moved back to her mother together with her three-year-old daughter.
The pair had married in September 2003 when Diana was only 21! She´s the owner of a hat-fashion-shop in Konstanz where she designs hats.
Well, to tell the truth, I saw it coming.....

21 is way to young to get married. Pitty for the child.

German/Austrian Holidays

Does anyone know how the various German-Austrian royals spend the holidays? I would assume that the Habsburgs congregate around Otto near Munich; the Hohenzollerns head to their castle in Baden-Wurttemberg; the Wittelsbachs go to one of their properties in Bavaria, etc.

The German Empire was established under the Emperor (Kaiser) Wilhelm I in 1871. Before this, Dukes ruled their own duchies in Germany. After 1871 and up to the abolishment of the German Empire in 1918, these Dukes retained their sovereignity under their new Emperor in Berlin.

German Nobility

Thus thread is dedicated to the German nobility.

To start it off, an article from BILD, here. For those who always wanted to become a countess, german television station Sat1 started a new programme, called 'Gräfin Gesucht' (countess wanted/searched). Four nobleman are in the show. They don't give the complete names though, and I doubt if all are actually a count, some are just a 'von'.
