Metternich - Winneberg
« on: February 21, 2006, 09:14:32 AM »
I am readinga book about Prince Clemens von Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein and I wanted to start this thread and to know something more about this family,their status and since they got their ''souveriegnity'' at the beginning of the 19th century I would also like to know what were the views from other royal and old noble families about their rise!They made some good matches with Wuerttemberg,Kaunitz...families!

The last Prince, Paul Metternich was married ( in 1941)to Princess Tatania Ilarionovna Wassiltchikov who survives him.The couple were childless.The Princess wrote fascinating memoirs in 1977 ending with their flight from their Bohemian estates by cart to their famous Rhineland vineyards Schloss Johannesburg which had been heavily bombed during the war but was totally restored in later years.Presumably too the Czech properties were at least partially restored after the fall of the iron curtain.

Princess Clementine Metternich the daughter-in-law AND grandaughter of the great chancellor and a famous figure in third Empire Paris was the author of several books at the end of her life.There is a short biography of her in one of Meriel Buchanan's books "Victorian Gallery".

You can find some info about them on the website of their primary residence in Bohemia: Kynzvart

http://www.kynzvart.cz/



Does some one know which Czech properties were restored? I thought only the properties of 'real' Czech noble families were restored to the original owners like for example the princes Lobkowicz and the Kinsky's

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.
