Princess Renata von Altenburg born in Zywiec, Poland on 13 April 1931 died in Madrid, Spain on 18 June.
The princess was the daughter of Archduke Karl Albrecht of Austria and his Swedish born wife Alice Ankarcrona who had previously been married to the Polish Count Badeni. Given that the marriage was morganatic Alice and her children were awarded the title Prince/ss of Altenburg by Archduke Otto in 1949. During the war the couple who had raised their children as Polish patriots were persecuted by the Nazis for refusing to cooperate with them. In spite of this Princess Alice was an active member of the Polish resistance and was later awarded for this by both the Communist regime and the Government-in-exile.
Together with her parents Renata spent the second half of the war incarcerated in the Strausberg labour camp until liberated in April 1945 by the Americans. After the war the now impoverished family moved to Sweden.
