Princess Xenia and Max Soltmann married civilly in July 2005.  Their religious wedding ceremony was on 8/26/06 at the town church in Langenburg in an ecumenical mass/service.

Their son, Ferdinand Gabriel Kraft Soltmann, was baptized in an ecumenical service on 8/25/06 at the schloßkapelle at Schloß Langenburg.  It was a small intimate affair with only about 30-35 people.  Princess Xenia kindly invited me to be a part of the group and I took quite a few photos for her and her husband.

Other than the marriage of his great aunt, how is GD George related?

The Hohenlohe-Langenburg dynasty has amazing connections to most of Europe's royals.  It all began with Queen Adelaide of Great Birtian, consort of King William IV, who played an important role in arrnaging the mariage of Princess Feodora zu Leiningen to Fürst Ernst zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg.

Feodora was Queen Victoria's beloved half-sister.  Ernst was Queen Adelaide's first cousin.

From then on the HHohenlohe-Langenburgs have kept a close contact to the English royal family, including the marriages of Fürst Ernst II to Princess Alexandra of Edinburgh and that of Fürst Gottfried to Princess Margarita of Greece, eldest sister of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The three Heads of House who lived between 1832-1960 [Hermann, Ernst II, Gottfried] all married princesses from First Section Almanach de Gotha Houses: Baden, Saxe-Coburg & Gotha and Greece.

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.

The court trial between the Whitneys and Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt was one fo the reasons for the breakup of this engagement...the scandal caused by the lesbian accusations launched at Gloria was too much to bear for the Hohenlohes, plus also discovering her millions were not hers, but little Gloria's held in trust.

Hope I haven't missed this elsewhere, but I was wondering if anyone had more information on the deaths of Ruprecht and Albrecht, twin sons of Gottfried and Margarita of H-L.  Born in 1944, the former died in 1978 and his brother committed suicide in 1992.  Might anyone know the cause of Ruprecht's death and/or any of the circumstances surrounding Albrecht's suicide?

I suppose this is ghoulish, but it always makes me much more curious when I can't easily find something out!

Thanks.
Stephen

What about Prince Albrecht's son Ludwig? Does anyone know anything about him? Does he have the title of Prince, he is legitimate.

Yes prince Ludwig is legitimate.....born 3 months after his parents marriage. Rupprecht died in 1976 and didn't Albrecht commit suicide too?

Yes, there seems to be some disagreement about when Ruprecht died - 1976 or 1978.  (Just as you find his name spelled with one or two Ps, variously.)  Most seem to say he died in 1978, though.  But he isn't listed as a suicide as his brother is.  Anything more, folks?

Why did he commit suicide? Does anyone know anything? Also are there any pictures of these royal twins? They are Prince Philip's nephews, they should get a bit more attention!?
