Today if Germany was a monarchy the head of the House of Hannover would be the king, i.e. this prince. I think this is some kind of spiritual premonitoring.

Why would the House of Hanover rule Germany, rather than the House of Hohenzollern? (I'm not favoring one over the other, just that the Hohenzollerns were the emperors for a few generations.)

He could be King of Hanover since the Head of the House of Hohenzollern would be an Emperor...

No.Goodness no.The head of the House of Hannover would be the umptiest Duke in the land if Germany would convert to a Monarchy again.

The Hohenzollern Prince George would be Emperor and King of Prussia,and one can not seriously compare him with prince korsakoff.

Prince Ernst-August seems to be having fun. He attended a photography exhibition of his friend Hubertus von Hohenlohe in Vienna, to publicise his 2010 Calendar, sponsored by Playboy magazine.
The BILD newspaper claims that the photos are of scantily clad female ski instructors...

EA looks like somebody who is drinking A LOT.

I had hoped that he had learned from the warning that he was given when suffering from life threatening illness in 2005 but sadly no. Caroline not by his side is not doing him any good.

:previous:I doubt he has ever given up drinking, as you can also see in the pics posted in the previous pages of this thread.
I agree that his separation from Caroline is not doing him any good, as far as we know, of course.

Renata4711 01-02-2010 07:54 PM

None of us knows whether he is drinking or not, but the chances of a habitual drinker giving up drink are slim .... some might say "impossible"....

Where does Prince Ernest August get his money from? Wiki has him worth 5 billion USD. Is it inherited or does he have businesses?

:previous:
Land, schloss and various properties in Germany, Austria and elsewhere, assets and private investments etc.
The Prince of Hanover is listed amongst the largest (Noble) Austrian landowners.

He certainly does look like someone in good health !:eek:

Does he still own the Castle in Gmunden?
And do the properties belong directly to him or are they part of a trust whose beneficiaries are the members of the Family?

Melania 11-04-2010 12:49 AM

Warren, thanks for sharing this information!

Before, I had thought that Prince Ernest August was lucky to marry Princess Caroline because she is worth 1 billion USD, but it turns out he is actually worth more than her! He didn't need her money. What is amazing is that their daughter has two separate billionaire parents, one from a well-respected royal line and the other from a fun, glamorous principality. Princess Alexandra and all of their children from their previous marriages are very lucky!

Schloss Cumberland in Gmunden ceased to be the Family Seat in 1923 and today is a hospital. The Prince of Hanover/the family/a trust certainly owns the former hunting lodge in Gmunden (see pic below) plus large amounts of land in Austria.

The actual composition of the Hanover assets (privately and individually held, held in trusts, held by a foundation etc), would probably be known only to EA, his sons, financial advisers and the German and Austrian tax offices, plus other countries in which property is held (eg Kenya, probably the UK, etc).

The 2005 auctions of the armoury, furniture, bric a brac etc at Schloss Marienburg raised €44m (US$62m) which was placed in a trust headed by Prince Ernst August jnr and Prince Christian to maintain the Castle and the Fürstenhaus Herrenhausen-Museum.

There is no information available as to whether Prince Ernst August as Head of the House provides for his relatives or whether they have otherwise been provided for. I'm sure this is considered "private family business."

I actually have a question...I have been reading a couple of royal books about Alexandra of Denmark (later Queen Alexandra of GB), the Windsors, Edward VII, etc.

In the Alexandra as well as the Edward VII book they are discussing Thyra (sister of Alexandra who married into the Hanover branch) and we are talking about the annexation of Hanover by the Prussians (?), and how they basically seized the assets of the Hanovers (and other German ruling families). So my question is this...from what I understand, they (the Hanovers and the others) never received their assets or compensation for the land, money, etc from the Prussians. Is that correct?

So am I correct in assuming that the assets of the current Hanover family, does not include the disputed assets. Is that a correct assumption? Does make sense?
