Wedding of Countess Carolin Alexandra von Hochberg

Countess Carolin von Hochberg and IT manager Jasper Schulz tied the knot at the bride's famous ancestral home, which belonged to her family for nearly half a millennia.

Seated at the castle for over 400 years, the royal German line of Hochberg-Pless last celebrated a family wedding at Książ (then named Fürstenstein) in 1924 when Prince Hans Heinrich XVII von Pless wed Countess Marie Katharina von Schönborn-Wiesentheid of Bavaria.

Fifteen years later, with the outbreak of WW2, Prince Hans and his brother Prince Alexander von Hochberg left Książ to fight against Hitler in the Polish and British armed forces.

Their mother, socialite Princess Daisy von Pless, also rebelled against Hitler’s regime by working for charities that helped prisoners at the Gross Rosen concentration camp.

Branded an enemy of Germany, the family lost ownership of the castle in 1944 when it was taken over by the German Nazis.

The estate was in a huge debt and that made taking the control by the Nazis much easier. Allegedly, Adolf Hitler himself approved the order to evict Princess Daisy von Pless from the castle.

But 83 years later, the countess, whose full title reads Countess Carolin Alexandra von Hochberg on Roztoka, Baroness of Książ, decided to hold her wedding at the castle after she visited it back in 2017 for a family function:

This is truly a marvelous wedding.
I like the fact that French horns played as Countess Caroline was escorted by her father.
The Christmas tree was beautifully decorated.
