Further,Karin's grandmother and daughter of the above mentioned Baroness Henriette,Countess Eleonore Pilati von Thassul zu Daxberg(1868-1935) was named after her own aunt and Sophie's great-great grandmother Baroness Eleonore...

Karin is also a cousin of the present Prince Hieronymus von Clary und Aldringen...

I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the House of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and its connections to other royal and imperial dynasties.
Duke Michael is a fantastic writer!

No they have lived in southern Germany since 1945, although the current duke's father Duke Georg Alexander returned after German reunification and lived in Mirow until his death in 1996.

They regained ownership of the Remplin Palace in 2004, although just the North Wing still stands as most the palace was destroyed in a fire in 1940. What is left is not in a good condition.

Thank you DWC for the very interesting link to the Grand Ducal house. After Grand Duchess Augusta I hadn't really looked into the rest of the family especially todays descendants.
