This is interesting. For anyone who wishes to further their studies of the earliest Slavic royal dynasties they should consult Professor Bohuslav Chropovsky's excellent publication (Orbis, Prague 1989) The Slavs: Their Significance Political and Cultural History.

I suspect that many more ruling dynasties within the present German borders were originally of Slavic origin. And remember, to suggest that even 40 years ago would have been anathema in well upholstered places.

Countess Elizabeth Bathory and her ancestory

I have always been fascinated with the story of "Vampire Bloody Countess",it seemed unbelievable to me that such a pretty woman was able to kill so many people and to be so cruel.She was sentenced to death,but then placed under the house arrest.From other side,I've read that cruelty was a common thing in those harsh times and it supposed that she was not so guilty .For example,as a Transylvanian Protestant aristocrat,the countess belonged to a group generally opposed to Habsburgs.I wonder what happened to her children from her marriage to Ferenc Nadasdy and If I am not wrong,she had an illegitimate child as well.
So,could we find who are her present day descendants?

Many of the royals are actually descendants of Genghis Khan,including Queen Elizabeth II who has even descended from Chinese dynasties...her line from the Chinese Emperors(through Mary of Teck) was an official present to her when she visited China in 1986.

P.S.Love those unusual lines...thank you for the effort!

Probably through her mother Maria, haven't checked it in detail, who is a born Countess of Goëß-Saurau. Her father was Count Carl-Anton of Goëss-Saurau and her mother Baroness Maria Mayr of Melnhof, her sister Cecilie is the Princess of Waldeck-Pyrmont.

Marc23, you have a really “vivid” imagination! But in fact, it's not true what your saying: Xenia Maculan's mother hasn't got any of these names you've mentioned in her family tree!


Here's a link where you can see the real ancestors of Xenia Maculan's grandpa Carl-Anton, Graf von Goëss-Saurau:
GeneAll.net - Carl-Anton, Graf von Goss-Saurau

Indeed, these families may not all be among her close anscestors. But still, but there are quite a few interesting names in the Goëss genealogy:

Go

Her mothers younger sister Cecilia is married to the Fürst of Waldeck-Pyrmont and a distant cousin is married to Duchess Eleonore Fleur of Württemberg. For the rest mainly Austrian-Hungarian aristocracy as far as I can see.

Not even an hour of searching shows that she is related to at least four of the following families - Liechtenstein, Dietrichstein, Hohelohe and Lippe. If you look closely you might also find links to the other families.

You are right Saschana, with your instructions I've found the direct line to these 4 ancestors, but I'm sorry, I cannot find the other 5: Fürstenberg, Solms, Hohenzollern, Fugger and Oettingen.
Please if you can find the direct line to these others tell us the combination like for the first 4. Thank you very much.


Marc23, I offer my apologies about this 4 ancestors of the 9 you mentioned.

I guess Gloria's problem will be with the paternal side of the family tree. AFAIK you're not considered noble if just your mother is of noble descent and on the father's side only if the mother is a noble as well. So I still doubt that Xenia fits the bill - Countess as mother is probably not enough for Gloria...

An excellent pedigree on the mothers side doesn't make her noble if the father isn't, just related to nobility.
There are also links though not descent to the Counts von Meran.

I wasn't thinking about ruling royals at all,but about nobles,as I wrote...

There are many examples of noble/noble marriages in recent years,especially in Germany as Albert is also part of that set:


Prince Manuel von Bayern=Princess Anna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg

Prince Ferdinand zur Lippe-Weissenfeld=Princess Augusta of Bavaria

Princess Alice of Bavaria=Prince Lukas von Auersperg

Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia=Princess Sophie zu Isenburg

Prince Dominik von Lowenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg=Countess Olga von Catell-Rudenhausen

Prince Ludwig zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn=Countess Philippa Spannocchi

Prince Ludwig von Schonburg-Hartenstein=Countess Elisabeth von Beaufort-Spontin

Count Rodolphe von Limburg-Stirum=Archduchess Marie-Christine of Austria

Count Ulrich von Mamming=Archduchess Veronika of Austria

Duchess Tatjana von Oldenburg=Count Axel de Chavagnac

Princess Paola Maria Sapeiha-Rozanska y Orleans-Braganca=Prince Constantin Swiatopolk-Czetwertynski

Count Alexander zu Stolberg-Stolberg=Princess Isabel de Orelans-Braganca

Princess Antonia zu Salm-Salm=Count Emanuel von Mirbach-Harff

Prince Antonius zu Furstenberg=Donna Matilde Borromeo-Arese dei Principi di Angera

Archduke Martin of Austria=Princess Katharina zu Isenburg

Princess Georgina von Hohenlohe-Bartenstein=Count Clemens Douglas

Prince Christian zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg=Princess Alice zu Hohenlohe-Bartenstein


and many,many more...

There is a reason for it. Countess Christine of Brühl wrote an interesting book about it named "Noblesse oblige":

Noble children always go to the same schools, to certain boarding schools like Kloster Wald or Luisenlund or Kolleg St.Blasien, because most nobles live countrysides in their castles and really good schools are often not around. Another reason is that hereditary princes become employers one day and parents don't want them to mix around with their future workers ( which could bring them into a dilemma like "do you know what I've done once for you ....?")


When in puberty, they often spend holidays together in someones castle
(there is constant endeavor to embed the nobles from former eastern Germany, who lost everything, to West German noble events, to have a bigger group of possible marriage candidates).
Here they learn ballroomdancing and do charity work. Girls from parents without castles are often teached how to keep a castle ( just for the case they marry an heir) and do things like flower arrangements. Very often they reherase a play for someones jubileebirthday. There are activities like "Adel auf dem Radel" where a group of noble teenager go from castle to castle by bike and do some charity work or just have fun together.
Gloria wrote in her interview book, that when Albert and his sisters were young, she often did sport and play weeks in castle Taxis. Hosts are very generous in those weeks and give their children certain freedom. BUT of course ONLY noble children do take part in this. No Mixture!
I heard about many "Xenias" ( mommy noble, daddy not) who never were invited to such very important livetime connection events. This stuff is ALWAYS the same people, thats why the most nobles know each other very well respectively there are those certain circles ( southwest nobles, nobles from Franken, Rheinland....)

Especially when young nobles start to study the hot phase starts. The Teenager time was society training, no it's getting real. When noble children go to university top class manners are anticipated by other nobles, but especially commonors.
Now the most future married couples come together. In semesterholidays, which are longer in Germany than in anglosaxonian areas, cometogethers are arranged. Now they go to huntings and balls ( jubilees, weddings...).

Parents, especially mums and aunts, tatter the Gotha to find a proper partner. They also make sure, that nobles stay together in the towns they study. The best situation is a shared flat with some other "von", girls and boys separated of course. There is a very tough weekly routine of balls, weddings, dopes, hunting events ans so on, so that many nobles don't even have the time to spend weekends with commoners. There's of course a plan behind that routine: To avoid your noble child has tighter contact to commoners, especially of the other sex.

There is ONLY one more or less accepted exception: Heirs from "old" upper class families with a lot of inheritage ( from 5 Mio $ on up to no limit) because 90 % of the noble families need a money shot one day, because noble living cost.

And of course the obligatory pilgrims, where every "normal" noble teenager/ twentysomething has to go one day.

Just two small examples: Georg Prussia and Sophie Isenburg were a couple during study times - lost themselves in late twentys - are were brought together again by their mothers ( close friends).

Albert stayed close to Lukas Auersperg when studying.


There is a very big pressure on nobles, but on the other hand they often even know just a hand of commonors, who make just a few percent towards the big extended families. it depends on the parents and their influence. I don't want to say, that those couples don't love each other, but it's laboratory feeling. In free nature the might find other partners.


Royal children of ruling monarchies towards that do often accompaign their parents, have to go to public schools to show populism etc. They play in another "league" which keeps them away of the noble dump.

I think the dates are wrong, have a look here - della Torre (von Thurn und Valsssina) 10

A1. Georg, Freiherr zum Kreuz, *Praha 3.1.1788, +Wien 9.2.1866; m.Wien 28.5.1833 Gfn Emilie Chorinsky Frn von Ledske (*Brno (Brünn) 14.1.1811, +Bleiburg 14.8.1888)

B2. Johann Duclas, *Mainz 22.9.1835, +Streiteben 26.7.1904; m.Irlbach 9.8.1863 Gfn Gabrielle von Bray-Steinburg (*München (Munich) 10.2.1841, +Wien 6.1.1892), dau.of Gf Otto Kamillus Hugo Gabriel von Bray-Steinburg and Donna Ippolita Dentice dei Principi di Frasso
  • C1. Marianne, *Streiteben 10.9.1869, +Graz 21.4.1940; m.Bleiburg 24.7.1889 Gf Leopold Peter von Goëß (*Graz 28.10.1848, +Ebenthal 22.7.1922)

If she would have been born in 1835 she would have married at the age of 54 and would have had her last child at the age of 66. Rather unlikely I'd say
