Princely House of Schaumburg-Lippe
 

Arms of the Princely Family of Schaumburg-Lippe

The Princely House of Schaumburg-Lippe
House of Lippe


This branch was founded by Philip (1601-1681). youngest son of Simon VI, Count and Noble Lord of Lippe.
Schaumburg-Lippe was formed in 1647 through the division by treaties of the County of Schaumburg between the Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel and the Count of Lippe.
The territories of Philip's great-great grandson Count Georg achieved sovereign status in 1806.
Count Georg was recognised as Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe in 1807.

At 131 sq miles in area (340 sq km) Schaumburg-Lippe was the smallest German state after Reuss (Elder Line) and had the smallest population (43,000 in 1914).

The dynasty ceased to reign 15/16 November 1918 when Prince Adolf II became the last of the German monarchs to abdicate.

Members of the Princely Family bear the title of Prince or Princess zu Schaumburg-Lippe with the qualification of Serene Highness.
Admission as a family member is dependent on the consent of the Head of the Princely Family.

Head of the House
Alexander (b1958), Fürst zu Schaumburg-Lippe, Noble Lord of Lippe, Count of Schwalenberg and Sternberg

Princely House of Schaumburg-Lippe
 
Princess Lily seems to be an interesting person and I like her for that :P

Marengo 12-09-2005 03:53 AM

Sadly she looks very tacky in most of those images. I have seen her on german television sometimes and there she seemed to be a vibrant and sympathetic woman. What was the reason for her divorce from Alexander btw?

Princely House of Schaumburg-Lippe
 
Can anyone tell me which Princely Families closely intereact with each other? I saw the photos of the Schaumburg-Lippe wedding today, and I only saw a couple of members of other German Houses.

Warren 06-30-2007 01:58 PM

I saw members of the Luxembourg, Hohenzollern, Wittelsbach, Württemberg, Hohenlohe-Oehringen, Bismarck, Faber-Castell, von Leyen and Bourbon-Two Sicilies families. Fürst Alexander's former wife, Princess Lilly, also attended with her 2nd husband and child, which is very civil. No doubt there were representatives from many other Princely and noble families; the PPE agency had lots of pictures, but none of them were captioned.

ETA.. more identifications from the gallery of pics posted by Elsa M. here in the Wedding thread:
Count Douglas
Löwenstein
Saxe-Meiningen
Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg
Schönburg-Glauchau
von Hardenburg
Waldburg-Wolfegg
Ysenburg und Büdingen

Is there a guestlist??

Here is a link to the photos from the wedding. The captions tell you who attended and so forth.

The bride's dress is beautiful and the tiara... to die for!:flowers:

Sternchen at Glittering Royal Events message board started a topicabout the wedding and various members added comments regarding the guestlist.

Thank you Warren; I don't know what I was looking at; I stand corrected.

You are wonderful as always!

This is what I'm curious about, too. It doesn't look like Sophie von Isenburg. She's a blonde and this one is not. They look related...like it's one of his cousins. I thought Beatrice or Florence?? Or I could be totally wrong!

Dulce Elena 07-01-2007 08:22 PM

Funny picture!! This little guy is NEVER going to live this down:

OK...I found out who she is! According to a German monarchy group I am part of, she is Ursula v.d. Leyden. Her grandfather was the Niedersachsen Minister President, Ernst Albrecht. These photos causes a hubbub in that other forum. I'm a little curious as to why since GF was clearly photographed arriving ALONE to the church. He also appears to have arrived ALONE to the wedding soiree:

Oh, well people will speculate, especially for such a high profile person. :biggrin: If anyone knows more about her keep up informed for information's sake!!

ELENA

Benjamin 07-01-2007 09:31 PM

Elena,
Is the young lady perhaps a daughter of Ursula von der Leyen (see here: Ursula von der Leyen - Wikipedia), who is the daughter of Mr. Albrecht?

Dulce Elena 07-01-2007 09:37 PM

Possibly. I got this info from another group. I am trying to do my own research ;) The v.d Leyden's have 6 kids!!!

I thought she has 7?

Marengo 07-02-2007 07:08 AM

You are right, she has seven children, 5 daughters and 2 sons.

Talk about statistics: it's only because of her that the female ministers in our government have about 1 child each.....
