Royal, Princely and Noble Families of Germany & Austria 2

What does everyone know about this young, handsome, eligible royal? He is the royal of the month (at least I think I read right)! I know he spends his time between Bremen, Berlin and Hechingen. That's about it. He's involved in his late grandmother's charity work (Prinzessin Kira Stiftung), and he done some traveling, but not much else. C'mon y'all...spill

I found the picture of Sophie back, but I can't post it here because it's from a Yahoo group.

The group is called 'Royauté' (it's French). Mind you it's NOT 'Royauté2', in message 2006, there are photos from the funeral of Kira of Prussia, GF's aunt. Sophie is the girl on the photo on the 2nd row, 1st one from the left.

The Ducal family of Cleves became extinct in 1609 when the male line died out and the Duchy of Cleves was subsequently devided between Brandenburg and Wittlesbach families before becoming part of Prussia in 1815.

Princely Wedding Shock!

I have no information to add apart from some biographical detail...

HSH Prince Alexander, born 1979, is the son of Prince Alfred and lives with his family in Vienna.

Prince Alfred is the brother of Hereditary Prince (Erbprinz) Johannes von Schönburg-Hartenstein; their father is Alexander, the 8th Prince (Fürst).

Whatever the reason, cancellation of the wedding at the last moment must be very embarrassing for such a noble and proud family.

The Gotha must be agog!

It's better to cancel instead of ending up divorced.

But isn't it weird to text message guests on the way to the wedding??

This sounds like a very puzzling event!

No explanation

Still a complete mystery as to what happened to bring about the abrupt wedding cancellation, and why. The G-ARMB has no further info either.

Just a precision: Anne-Victoire de Rougé is not a countess. In France, daughters don't get the titles of their father (except if daughters of a prince or a King). So she is mademoiselle Anne-Victoire de Rougé. But her father is count de Rougé.

Which Royal Family?

There is HRH Prince Eric of Bourbon-Parma (b 1953), married to Countess Lydia of Holstein-Ledreborg (her mother is Princess Marie Gabrielle of Luxembourg, a sister of Grand Duke Jean).

Archduchess Michaela of Austria (a daughter of the Archduke Otto) married Duke Eric Alba-Teran d'Antin, but they are divorced.

Question Images of German Empresses and Queens

I'd appreciate images of empresses of the Holy Roman Emipre and Germany - any esp. medieval. Berta of Tourin, Agnes de Poitu, Maria Anna von Bayern etc. The more, the better.

mustnt forget that most Royals were married to other royals

Thus the Baron and Baroness Von Smolevitz.....related to Hanna Rothschild.
The Von Smolevitz" were also my grand parents. So, i descend from Russian royalty and Deutschland. My grandfather was killed during ww2. Jewish royalty. Grandmother went to U.K. with their 3 children. My mother the midle one. she met my Father, Princess Esterina Romanov's son, married him ... and had myself the youngest and my sister.

None of my genealogies mention a 'Princess Esterina Romanov'. Is there an alternate spelling?

Yes, I checked that too, same result. But we'd probably find a Rothschild or two.

Indeed.
Some Hanna(h) Rothschild existed, but no one is related to a baron Smolevitz. So...
