Bloodwise, yes. There was a son, Assène, who married Bertha Hussa. He adopted his stepson (age 19) who was renamed Wilhelm von Hartenau. Wilhelm had 3 children: 1.Alexander Assène Franz von Hartenau b. 28 Sep 1942; 2.Elisabeth Franziska Maria von Hartenau b. 4 Jun 1945; 3.Franziska Vera Maria von Hartenau b. 2 Mar 1948. Wilhelm was an MD. I wonder as the only 'descendants' if the family is in possession of much of the material on the lives of Alexander and Johanna.

A wonderfully put together exhibition with a thoroughly interesting and personal presentation of Alexander's life by VN.
So good to have met you.

Thank you very much.

(I would love to have included some photos of Heiligenberg and the exhibition but I forgot my camera :-(  )

I think that estate was sold by VMH after the first world war...

It was sold by Louis before his death.

I hope he got a good price for it. It must be embrassassing to own property in enemy territory.  :(

Enemy territory?! That Battenbergs were entirely German in the male line - Heiligenberg was not just an estate it was the very first Battenberg residence.

One has to keep in mind that it was only for the British narrow-mindedness that Prince Ludwig had to change his name and title - I do not think that it was a pleasure for him and his family.

It is Louis & Victoria WERE naturalised British subjects and not Germans by nationality anymore. To own land abroad is not something you want the British people to know about especially you were in public office. It was a serious conflict of interest.

The proceeds or at least the greater part were swallowed up in the german inflation that happened soon after the sale and Louis death.

That is what I thought...the same happen to the money that Anna Anderson fought in Germany that was divided over to VMH & Irene.
