Lived to 100 and died a peaceful death. Even the dying peacefully is something most of her family cant say. The things she saw and losses she suffered in her life time. Unlike Princess Hiyam who was injured during the murder of the other members of the royal family, Bdiya was not there. Hiyam died in 1999 (she was Bdiya's sister in law). Bdiya and her husband and three children had sought sanctuary at the Saudi embassy who helped get them out to Egypt from where they went to Switzerland and later London where they settled for good.

She was related twice to Faisal II. The closest of course is being his Aunt, as his mother was her eldest sister Aliya. But she was also a first cousin of his father. Her father Prince Ali was the older brother of King Abdullah I of Jordan and King Faisal I of Iraq. King Abdullah of Jordan (current) is her first cousin twice removed.

She is first cousins with the current pretender to Iraq Prince Ra'ad bin Zeid whose father Zeid was the youngest brother of Ali. Zeid and his family lived in London during the coup, where he was an ambassador.


While Bdiya is the last living princess of the 'reigning monarchy' there are princesses of the royal house remaining. But born after the coup. Her cousin Ra'ad has a daughter born in 1981, and a few granddaughters who all carry the title Princess. His son Zeid (claim to be crown prince of Iraq) was the UN human rights commissioner from 2014-2018. Their titles are confirmed by the Jordanian court as members of the Hashemite house.


Her son

Isn't this the current Landgrave of Hesse? At least that's what's on Wikipedia.

There are two Hesse-branches; this is the Hesse-Philippsthal-branch. Otto's father is the head of that branch.

See also this page with background information on the Hesses. Apparently, all the members of the house are both prince(ss) and landgrav(in)e; not just the head of the house:

I doubt it as the names wrong, date of birth is different and parents are different.

Otto’s father is still alive, and has an older brother to succeed him.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilh...thal-Barchfeld

That’s the page for Otto’s father.

Thanks for the information. I didn't know there were two branches of this family.
I also didn't know that every member of the family has the title of Landgrave.

Yes, his first son Wilhelm, Prinz und Landgraf von Hessen-Philippsthal-Barchfeld (brother of late Otto) should succeed his father one day as Head of this branch of the family.

In Wikipedia it is stated that Wilhelm is married to Susanne von Kaufmann, although she uses her other name: Alexandra von Kaufmann. They have 3 sons.

Susanne Alexandra Margret von Kaufmann (b. 1971) is the scion of von Kaufmann family:

https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9A...B0%D0%BD%D1%8B

Unfortunately, the article about her family is only in Russian.

He lost a child and a grandchild...so sad...

Anyone know when exactly (day and month) Clementine and Elisabeth Dennis died?

See also the previous posts. Just a quick note/clarification: apparently Otto and Carla divorced in 2017. Assuming that Max (21) and Elena (20) no longer live with either parent, I wonder whether Moritz (12) and Leopold (10/11) lived with their mom or also (partly) with their dad.

They are one of the (not that many) royals having a Las Vegas wedding (when Carla was pregnant with Max).

She was the half-sister/cousin of King Mahendra of Nepal, making her Aunt to the last kings of Nepal, Birendra and Giyanendra.

King Tribuhuvan of Nepal had 2 senior wives (he had a few junior as well). Queen Kanti and Queen Ishwari were full sisters. King Mahendra was the son of Queen Kanti. Nalini was the daughter of Ishwari.

She was the full sister of Prince Basundhara. His eldest daughter Princess Jayanti was killed during the royal massacre, and his daughter Ketaki Chester was wounded. His daughter Princess Jyotshana Basnyat was not involved (her husband was the Nepalese ambassador to the UK at the time).

She was HRH the Rani of Poonch via her marriage to Raja-i-Rajgan Raja Shri Shiv Rattan Dev Singh Sahib Kalan Bahadur, Raja of Poonch. She was Queen mother at the time of her death.
