Ducal Family / Duchy of Pless

Hi everyone,

I am trying to find out, who the current head of the Ducal Family of Pless is. Is it possible, that the line is extinct?

Thanks a lot for your help and and I am looking forward to hear from you!

All the best
Karloff

I believe the grandson of Daisy of Pless -Fürst Bolko b. 1936- is head of the family. He will be succeeded by a distant cousin.

Pless / Hochberg

Yes, Prince Bolko is an actual head of the House of Pless, but there are legitimate descendants of prince Alexander of Pless in Russia - they are the real heirs.

Why did Hans Heinrich XIX renounce his rights in 2003?

I don't know why, but it's a nonsense - He could renounce from real power and property, but according to the royal prussian act of creation of the title,
each live eldest male legitimate descendant of the 1st Prince must accept the title of prince of Pless.

Thank you for this information...

That makes things more intriguing.
