Alexander is NOT a prince of Saxony, nor is he heir to the headship of the Saxon Royal Family.

Totally sorry. I just posted what I found.

Not your fault, it's just clarification for other readers.

Apparently the Margrave of Meissen, Head of the Royal House of Saxony, named Alexander his heir in 1997 "with the agreement of the dynasts of the family". Whether this makes him a legitimate heir to the Headship of a Royal House is another question.

The Saxonian minister of foreign affairs and advisor of the Saxonian Prime Minister, Prince Alexander taken up of Saxonia M., to 22.03.2006 during a meeting with investors in the Brazilian restaurant metropolis Sao Paulo. The Wettiner traveled in the past 14 days on behalf of the Free State Saxonia by South America to attach contacts with politicians and enterprises and in-recruit investments. The prince and his wife, princess Gisela von Bayern, live with their four children in Dresden.

Prince Alexander was intended 1995 for the Kronprinzen of the family.

Since when did Prince Alexander drop the 'Gesaphe' part of his name? Or is the caption wrong? Will he be the heir of Pricnce Max-Emmanuel or will the title go to one of the junior branches of the house Wettin?

Warren 04-05-2006 04:49 AM

Prince Alexander was named as his natural heir by the Margrave of Meissen in 1997 "with the agreement of the dynasts of the Family" according to Royalty Digest. Alexander moved to Dresden from Mexico and is now head of a Saxon Government department in charge of business development. I guess the 'Gessaphe' has been quietly dropped.

A ps to the Royals and the Reich subject: Prince Maria Emanuel (before he became Margrave of Meissen and Head of the Royal House of Saxony) along with his father Margrave Friedrich Christian were arrested by the Gestapo and jailed in Dresden; both narrowly escaped death sentences in 1944.

Just a short info about Xenia Princess of Saxony: she is the illegitimate daughter of Iris Princess of Saxony (thus German family law accords her her mother's last name which is "Prinzessin von Sachsen") and an unknown father. Iris herself is the legitimate but morganatic daughter of Prince Georg Timo von Sachsen and Margit Lukas, who was the daughter of a butcher. Iris grew up at her mother's parent's house without knowing of her Royal background till she was 18. She has been married for four times, in between she had two daughters from unknown fathers according to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb....16.html#i26563
Other genealogy sources say the same.

The Family of Saxony does not recognize Iris and her children, especially as Xenia (the above quoted "princess") tries to build a career in TV by taking part as a "Princess" in shows like "The Castle" which was the medieval version of the jungle- thing "I'm a star" or in boulevard-TV-programmes where she sells her Royal background.

I do like young Xenia, during the quite tough situations in "Die Burg" she showed that she has character and is a rather sweet and well-mannered girl.
But still she is not the right "Princess" to be quoted in such an article, IMHO.

Jo, are you saying "people in glass houses..." :D

I guess, that's what I did. :D But really, Xenia seems to be a very nice girl and it's not her fault that her heritage is somehow tainted. And she has the right to use that name when it comes to the German law of the time she was born. Sie simply is "Xenia Prinzessin von Sachen, Herzogin von Sachsen."

And: she is not adopted, so she really has some Royal blood in her veins... I recall that at the "Burg" (Castle) show she was early on voted by the callers to become a scullery maid instead of princess and that meant hard work, early hours, primitive circumstances... But she managed very well, never became bitchy for example when she had to work as maid to one of the girls the public voted for as "ladies" etc. As I said, I like her.

And it's a difficult life she has in a way: there is no money that I know of, there is no chance she is invited to the balls of the aristocracy as she has no sponsor from the Saxony-family (they consider her probably as being just a by-blow) but she like other girls dreams of being a "real" princess... So why not try her hand at TV? After all, others are sucessful at that including the current wife of the prince Ferfried, who does not even have a drop of Royal blood in her veins and got her name through marriage (AFAIK - couldn't finde any different information on the net).

So, yes, I wish her well.

...and that's a refreshing sentiment. She'd be pulled to pieces in the Monaco Forums. :eek:

Interesting that you say that. When I started reading about Charlene Wittstock I thought that Xenia of Saxony could exactly be the girl for prince Albert. If he has something against the Parisian socialites his sister Caroline champions and looks more for the down-to-earth people his sister Steph favours, then Xenia (apart from being young, blond and nice to look at) could exactly be Princess Right.... LOL :D

I'm afraid, though, that she might not want the prince...

Alles aus: Prinz Rüdiger und Diana gehen getrennte Wege
Aus und vorbei! Lange Zeit war es das bestgehütetste Geheimnis in hiesigen Adelskreisen. Doch die Morgenpost erfuhr: Prinz Rüdiger von Sachsen und Gattin Prinzessin Diana haben sich getrennt. Zum zweiten Mal und diesmal wohl für immer.
http://www.sz-online.de/nachrichten/...asp?id=1228624
=================================================
Rüdiger Prinz von Sashsen, morganatic son of the late Prince Timo of Saxony and Margit Lukas, and his wife Diana (nee Dorndorf) have separated. The couple were married in 2004.
Rüdiger is a cousin of the head of the Saxon Royal House, the Margrave of Meißen.

Concerning the story on Rüdiger and Diana von Sachsen, I have seen one source that says the couple is already divorced, so perhaps the article is a little outdated.

Prinz Alexander bleibt in Diensten Sachsens
15.12.2005
Dresden. Neue Hoffnung für Alexander Prinz von Sachsen. Nachdem ihm Wirtschaftsminister Thomas Jurk (SPD) als Ansiedlungsbeauftragter zum Jahresende den Vertrag nicht mehr verlängerte, führt der 52-Jährige nach Informationen dieser Zeitung jetzt Gespräche mit der Staatskanzlei über einen weiteren Einsatz im Dienste des Freistaates. Ob es zum Abschluss eines Beratervertrages oder einer Honorarvereinbarung kommt, ist offenbar noch Gegenstand von Verhandlungen.
http://www.dnn-online.de/dnn-heute/59273.html
=======================================================
Saxon Secretary of Commerce Thomas Jurk extended Prince Alexander's contract with the Saxon government...doing what I'm afraid I don't know. Perhaps someone with a knowledge of German can enlighten us?

Jo of Palatine 09-17-2006 05:28 AM

No, you're not right, Thomas Jurk did not extend the contract... Here's the translation:

Prince Alexander to stay in the services of German federal state Saxony.

Dresden. New hope for Alexander Prince of Saxony. After secretary of commerce Thomas Jurk (SPD) decided not to prolong the prince’s contract as commissioner for the recruitment of new businesses in the area, the 52 year old now talks to the office of the prime minister about continuing his services for the federal state of Saxony, according to informations of our paper. Whether these talks lead to the signing of a contract of consultancy or to the agreement to a payment of fees, is still a topic of the negociations.

"Ansiedlungsbeauftragter" consists of the words "location" and "commissioner" and means in commerce that the prince used his contacts to convince companies to open up a new branch in Saxony.

Greetings from Germany, Jo
