Solms-Hohensolms-Lich

German birthright not for sale, politicians warned

Sydney Morning Herald, 28 September 2011

Germany's top judge has issued a blunt warning that no further fiscal powers may be surrendered to Europe without a new constitution and a popular referendum, vastly complicating plans to boost the European Union's rescue machinery to €2 trillion ($2.73 trillion). Andreas Vosskuhle, head of the constitutional court, said politicians do not have the legal authority to sign away the birthright of the German people without their explicit consent...

Prince Hermann Otto zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich, the Bundestag's deputy president and finance chief for the Free Democrats in the ruling coalition, expressed outrage over the [government's] secret plans. ''Unless the German finance minister can give an immediate assurance that there will be no leveraged formula, I will not vote for this law. We might as well dispense with months of negotiations if all this means is that the Bundestag will be circumvented and served cold leftovers,'' he said.

I'm with the Prince on this one. Either it is government for and by the people, or it is not.

Does anyone know if the Italian skijumper Sebastian Colloredo is related to the House of Colloredo-Mannsfeld?

Great grief has fallen on Count Ruppprecht-Maximilian von und zu Arco-Zinnebrg gennant Bogen (b.1941) & his wife Katharina, nee Countess Henckel von Donnersmarck (b.1943):

Their daughter, Countess Isabella-Gabriela von und zu Arco-Zinnebrg gennant Bogen died in Louvain, in January.

She was born in Munich on 5 December 1973 as the second child; she had older brother Aloys-Maximilian (b.1970). On 12 May she married in Schloss St. Martin Alexandre Stefanovich (b. in Washington on 17 November 1961).

Apart from her parents, brother and husband, she bereaved three children: Maximilian-Alexandre, Elisabeth-Eliane (twins, b.2001) and Karl-Ferdinand (DOB unknown).

So young a woman....So sad!

I have a very urgent question: Which languages does Prince Alois Konstantin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg speak? Thank you!

Since Alois-Konstantin was born and lived in Germany whole his life, I would assume his first language to be German.
He was born in Wurzburg, grew up in Bronnbach, attended school in Milton and univeristy in his native Wurzburg.
The Prince worked mainly in Frankfurt and Munich, and currently lives in Kleinheubach.

In addition to German, I expect he's fluent in English, since he worked in the United States, first in a bank, then for Gulf Oil.

In addition to German, he definitely speaks English (having worked in the United States for a number of years) and French.
What are the other three languages I cannot tell. Perhaps one of the other members of the forum could help you.

He once mentioned in an interview that he speaks Spanish. Iirc, he mentioned that one of his sisters lives in Spain and he often spends time there.

Could one of them be Italian, since his mother Carolina was born an Italian Countess?

Thanks for posting. Does anyone know if this lucky Von und zu Eltz is of the same family that owns the stupendous Burg Eltz? If so, there will be no problem spending the Heineken fortune:|
