Hohenlohe-Langenburg
« on: February 11, 2005, 10:18:16 AM »
And some info and a pic if possible of Feodore Pss zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg (Stuttgart 7 Jul 1839- Meiningen 30 Mar 1872), she married into the Saxe-Meiningen family and was a niece of Queen Victoria, that's all I know...

THANKS!

She married George of S-Meiningen in 1858 and had two (at least?) sons Ernst (1859) & Frederick (1861).
Vicky can't have liked her husband much because QV wrote to her in 1859:
"I am sorry for Feo's sake that you dislike her husband so much. She is happy - and contented, and that is enough."
She was his second wife & QV seems to think he was kind to her:
"He hastened at once with Feo to Baden [following the death of her father] & he makes her as happy as possible."
Again to Vicky: "I am sorry George of M. is not pleasant to you. Feo is however very happy and they lead a very rational life."

(I wonder what a 'rational life' is??)

This family is heavily entangled in QV's descendents.
Queen Victoria's older half-sister, Princess Feodora of Leiningen, married Prince Ernest of Hohenlohe-Langenberg. They had several children, including Karl who made an unequal marriage, Elise (who died at 20 or 21), Hermann, Victor, Adelaide, Feodore, maybe others, I'm not sure. Some or maybe all of these children basically grew up at their aunt's English Court, I think Victor married an English Lady.
Prince Hermann of Hohenlohe-Langenberg married Leopoldine of Baden and they had at least one son, another Ernest (he would have been QV's grand nephew), who married QV's granddaughter, Alexandra of Edinburgh/Coburg, the third daughter of Alfred and Marie Alexandrovna and sister to the famous princess duo Missy and Ducky. Ernest and "Sandra" had a happy marriage, from what I've read, and Prince Ernest even served as regent after the Duke of Coburg's death until his nephew Charles Edward became of age.  They lived at the family castle, Schloss Langenberg. Ernest and Sandra had 5 children: Gottfried (who married Prince Philip's sister Margarita), Alfred (died as an infant), Marie Melita (married Duke Friedrich of Schleswig-Holstein), and Alexandra and Irma, neither of whom married.

I had always wondered about this family as well, and I found what I did by piecing together bits of info. from several different sources until I got a full picture.

I believe Gottfried of Hohenlohe-Langenberg was at one time engaged to Gloria Vanderbilt's widowed mother, Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt.  Couldn't resist this bit of trivia.

I know this is a little off topic but It is hard finding info on Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh's great-niece Princess Xenia of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. Does anyone know anymore info on her?

Princess Xenia was born in 1972 and is the daughter of Prince Kraft of HL and his ex-wife Princess Charlotte of Croy. I believe Kraft died last year. Prince Kraft was the son of Prince Philip's sister Princess Margarita of Greece and her husband Prince Gottfried of HL. Xenia has an  older brother, Philip, and an older sister, Cecilie.

In the past decade, Xenia has lived in Britain and in Central America.   She is expecting her first child, and will be marrying the father, Max Soltmann, in July.

Hello  :)

I would like to chat around this mediatised family...Indeed it is one of the three mediatised houses that has more importance due to it's connections...The other two are Thurn und Taxis and Leiningen...

In my opinion T & T was the one to make the best alliances (firstly to great protestant families and later on to great catholic families)...Leiningen too has good connections...

But from the Hohenlohe.Langenburg there is a closer connection to most heads of ruling and former ruling families (from the T & T descend practically every Protestant Houses, but Catholic just Saxony if I'm not mistaken)...

It all starts to get interesting from the descendants of the 2. Fürst (Christian Albrecht Ludwig, 1726-1789)...from his son Carl Ludwig (1762-1825; 3. Fürst) and daughter Luise (1763-1837, married to Duke George I of Saxe-Meiningen)...
Fürst Carl Ludwig had 3 children whose descendants made wonderful connections:

a) Fürst Ernst (1794-1860 ; Queen Victoria's brother in-law) descend the current heads of these families:

Prussia
(Russia, Gd-Duke Georgij is a descendant through his father)
Hannover
Greece
(Spain, Pr Felipe is a descendant through his mother)
Holstein
Saxe-Coburg and Gotha &
Sweden

b) from Pss Emilie (1793-1859, m. Graf Friedrich Ludwig zu Castell-Castell) descend the current:

Reuss
Lippe &
the Netherlands

c) from Pss Marie Agnes Henriette (1804-1833); m. Erbprinz Constantin zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, through her daughter Pss Adelheid, the wife of the exiled King Miguel I of Portugal, descend the current heads of these houses:

Portugal
Liechtenstein
Belgium
Italy
Bavaria
Luxembourg
(Brasil, Pr Pedro, nephew of Pr Luiz Gastão, is a descendant through his mother Pss Christine de Ligne)
Parma
(Romania, Margarita and their sisters and nephews through Queen Anne) &
Austria-Hungary (including of course the Austria-Este, representants of Modena)

c) from Pss Luise, Duchess of Saxe-Meiningen by marriage descend:

Saxe-Meiningen
(the extinct Saxe-Altenburg)
Schaumburg-Lippe
Anhalt &
Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach

There might be other connections, but this was what I could find without making a too profound search...


They are notorious...

I think this family (Hohenlohe-Langenburg) deserves her place here...

Yes ! Just to update. The ruby tiara which was owned by Grand Duchess Marie of Edinburgh, which passed to her daughter Sandra and subsequently to her own-daughter-in-law Margarita was sold years ago. Christie's on the 15th June will sell three brooches, a ring and a pair of ear-rings from the dismantled tiara. I just saw it in the pre-auction preview... ;)
