Hello Everyone -

Apparently, Prince Friedrich Wilhelm first asked permission to marry a certain Countess Paula von Lehndorff, but gave her up when Emperor Wilhelm II told him that a morganatic marriage would mean giving up his title.
A few years later, Friedrich Wilhelm was granted permission to marry the royal, but catholic Princess Agatha after her father promised the Emperor a protestant marriage ceremony and the protestant upbringing of future children.
(from John C. G. Röhl’s book: The Kaiser and his court: Wilhelm II and the government of Germany)
