Stolberg-Rossla
« on: May 30, 2006, 08:16:50 AM »
Hello!

Youngest sister of Kaiser Wilhelm's second wife Hermine, Princess Ida, was married into the Stolberg-Rossla Princely family. She was married to the 3.Fürst zu Stolberg-Rossla, Christoph Martin. They had four children, two daughters and two sons.
The youngest son, Johann Martin became the 4.Fürst zu Stolberg-Rossla. He was married to Hildegard Sauerbier, but they apparently didn't have any children. Who succeeded as 5th Fürst zu Stolberg-Rossla? Or this Princely family was annexed into some other branch of Stolberg family.
Thanks in advance.

Daniela

Well, thanks to both of you Marc and Rebecca.

I like very much the photo of the young couple. :)


So the Stolberg Rossla are extinct in the male line.
But the title was perhaps inherited by some other member of Stolberg family? I mean Stolberg Stolberg or Stolberg Wernigerode, or it is not done in that way?

I've found this lovely photo of three Stolberg princes from the different family branches

[size=14]That is indeed a charming picture, Daniela! :):)

I think the title Fürst zu Stolberg-Rossla went extinct when Fürst Johann Martin died in 1982. The Stolberg-Rosslas were a younger branch of the Stolberg-Stolbergs, but I do not think that the Stolberg-Stolberg could inherit the title. But on the other hand, there are a lot of strange inheritings of titles to be found in history, so I guess it is not impossible. But like I said, I do think that the title is extinct.

By the way, I forgot to mention before that there is still another member of the Stolberg-Rossla line left.  :-[ Fürst Johann Martin's widow, Hildegard, née Sauerbier (born 1922) is still alive, as far as I know, and she is of course a member of the family. Shame on me for that mistake.  :-[ :D[/size]

Thanks, Rebecca! :)

Does Fürst Johann Martin's widow, Hildegard, née Sauerbier lives in that beautiful Rossla palace, whose photo has Marc posted?

Well, she was still living there a few years ago, but I do not know if she still does. If so, she has got plenty of space...  ;)

Elisabeth zu Stolberg-Rossla and her second hushand Adolf Friedrich of Mecklenburg-Schwerin are buried in Ratzeburg. Does someone knows the exact place? Cemetery, mausoleum?
