Heroin overdose ends scandalous life of Bismarck's descendant .
He seems to have led a rather desolate and scandalous life, esp. the orgies and the 2 deaths that happened in his houses (one girl died of an overdose of heroine and a man fell from the roof while on 5 times the lethal quantity of cocaine). Very sad for his parents, Fuerst Ferdinand and Fuerstin Elisabeth.

The Bismarck Family

Count Nikolai von Bismarck, born in 1986, and his brother, Tassilo, born 1989, are friends from childhood of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York. Nikolai is on this year's Tatler Little Black Book.

Their parents are Count Leopold and Debonnaire von Bismarck. Count backward past four generations and you have the famous Otto von Bismarck, great-great-grandfather of Nikolai and Tassilo.

They have a £7 million home in Belgravia.

Apparently Nikolai and Beatrice had a date in October 2004, when they went to a party for the jeweller Theo Fennell and returned to the Bismarck home for a private party.

Nikolai took formal pictures of Beatrice to mark her 18th birthday. The proceeds from the pictures were donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust, of which Sarah, Duchess of York is Patron. Nikolai is supposedly ambitious to become a serious photographer.

Nikolai is presently with Beatrice in South America. According to Richard Kay, they were spotted at Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro.

Pictures of Nikolai (from facebook)
On the family private plane :cool:
Wearing blue shirt I don't know who the two on the edges are, but the girl next to Nikolai is Bettina Santo Domingo, a relation of Tatiana somehow (cousin or sister, I don't know) and she is living now in Boston as a student of Northeastern.

This year Nikolai got in trouble on Facebook for making a group that was complained about as being racist. He made the group called "For all those who believe tassilo von Bismarck is black." I don't know why he did that, but obviously he was making a stupid joke about his brother, that all their friends joined, including the York princesses, and all found funny, except some outsiders. Well, the outsiders, that is the people not coming from their circle, found it offensive and complained to Facebook. Facebook removed the group and Nikolai's account was taken away. His friends were outraged that he was banned from Facebook and made a group of protest, something like "for all who want Nikolai back on facebook." It was in this group where many of his friends posted pics of him at parties, and that is where those pics I posted are from.
The parents of Nikolai, Tassilo, Caspar, and Alexander

Count Leopold von Bismarck (their father) was born in 1951.

Their mother was born Debonnaire Patterson in 1959. Debonnaire married Leopold in 1984.

On this site Descendants of Otto von Bismarck and Johanna von Puttkamer Leopold is listed at #2.3.6.

The full family name is Bismarck-Schönhausen (the latter taken from the name of the old Bismarck estate near Hamburg) but they are almost never called that except on genealogy sites. For simplicity, they go by Bismarck, and usually take off the Count/countess style, because the Bismarck part is impressive enough. :D

Wikipedia has a category with articles about members of this family.

Count Konstantin von Bismarck was born on 7 January 1987. Birthplace: Hamburg, Germany.

He is, indeed, first cousin of Nikolai, Tassilo, Caspar, and Carl Alexander.

Konstantin is the son of Count Maximilian (born 12 January 1947) and Barbara (née Meijer *18 September 1958) von Bismarck. Maximilian and Barbara married on 4 July 1981.

Konstantin has a brother called Alexander who was born in 1989.

Konstantin is enrolled at Oxford, in the class of 2009.

His mother, Barbara, is a native of Tangiers, Morocco.

:D Konstantin is on facebook, in Oxford '09 network, and he is founder of the group that was made in protest of Nikolai being banned.
psychoduck, I trust you would recognize Konstantin if this is him?
I don't know........ it's the front pic for the aforementioned group. In the blue shirt, for sure, it's Nikolai, and he is looking at ?Konstantin like, "Who is that so-so-nice gesture intended for?" :D
oh my god, oh my god, so that's him? haha..i don't know..the guy i saw wore make up...that could explain why i found him so cute...because on this photo nik is wayy better than him....
i don't have the point de vue magazine anymore, so i can't compare...:bang: anyway, i remember that i pratically had love at first sight when i saw him the first time...i was speechless whereas now i found him quite "normal", pffff...

in all case, i find him less cute now :neutral:

thx casiraghitrio for your research...
psychoduck, I honestly have no idea, no clue if that is Konstantin. I was asking you! :D If he looks different to you, it might not be him..... I don't know. I was hoping you say if it's him or not.
Well, I don't have permission to post the picture but basically Tassilo is Nikolai with dark hair. Maybe a bit taller, oddly enough. I can't tell.....
Tassilo's face is exactly like Nikolai's as far as I can tell.
Well, apparently the campaign by Nikolai's friends to have his facebook account restored was successful.

He probably would hang out with Paris Hilton just for the heck of it. It seems like the kind of smart a^^ thing he would do. :) I'm sure his royal/noble friends would just go :rolleyes: and then LTAO.
July 2008 - birth expected of the second child of Count Carl-Eduard and Countess Nathalie von Bismarck (Bunte)

I was wondering if anybody knows how Fürstin Elisabeth Bismarck, née Lippens is related to Maurice Lippens. The CEO who was fired yesterday from the Belgian-Dutch bank Fortis.
And another thing, is she a countess by birth or a jonkvrouw? I get various awnsers to that after googling.

I found that she is his sister, they are both children of a Leon Graaf Lippens. They have a third sibling, Leopold Graaf Lippens who is mayor of Knocke.

As daughter of a "Graaf", in Germany she is considered to be a countess by birth.
Count Carl Eduard von Bismarck and his wife countess Nathalie, nee Barlman had their first daughter and second child at New York on June 30th 2008. She was named Grace.
The first child, Alexei, was born on April 28th 2006

It is sad to learn that a descendant of Otto von Bismark died due to drug overdose. I was impressed by Iron Chancellor after reading the book "Battle of Iron Chancellors" by Pikul.
Gorchakov and Bismarck: Battle of Chancellors

In 1875 Bismarck was suspected of a design of again attacking France, and Gorchakov gave him to understand, in a way which was not meant to be offensive, but which roused the German chancellor's indignation, that Russia would oppose any such scheme. The tension thus produced between the two statesmen was increased by the political complications of 1875–1878 in south-eastern Europe, which began with the HerzegovianBerlin congress. Gorchakov hoped to utilize the complications in such a way as to recover, without war, the portion of Bessarabia ceded by the treaty of Paris, but he soon lost control of events, and the Slavophile agitation produced the Russo-Turkish campaign of 1877-78. insurrection and culminated at the
By the preliminary peace of San Stefano, the Slavic aspirations seemed to be realized, but the stipulations of that peace were considerably modified by the congress of Berlin (13 June to 13 July 1878), at which the aged chancellor held nominally the post of first plenipotentiary, but left to the second plenipotentiary, Count Shuvalov, not only the task of defending Russian interests, but also the responsibility and odium for the concessions which Russia had to make to Britain and Austria. He had the satisfaction of seeing the lost portion of Bessarabia restored to his country by the Berlin treaty, but at the cost of greater sacrifices than he anticipated.
Gorchakov considered the Berlin treaty the greatest failure of his official career. After the congress he continued to hold the post of foreign minister, but lived chiefly abroad, with Dmitry Milyutin taking responsibility for foreign affairs. Gorchakov resigned formally in 1882, when he was succeeded by Nicholas de Giers. He died at Baden-Baden and was buried at the family vault in Strelna.
