Todays Wittlesbach?
« Reply #30 on: September 04, 2007, 12:35:36 PM »

Does anybody know when the wedding of Princess Anna takes place? I've always thought that it'll be in summer 2007? Are there any problems?

There isn't any problem at all Marie-Charlotte.
Bridal soiree at Nymphenburg Palace,München,yesterday:

Lucien, do you have any information about the birth of the second child of Elizabeth and Daniel Terberger? On Paul Theroff's website I read that the birth was expected in November. (By the way: I hope for a girl.)

Elizabeth in Bavaria and her husband Daniel Terberger had their second child. Ottora Elisabeth Victoria Lucia was born on 13 December 2007. What a name ... let's hope that the little girl isn't called Ottora in every day life. Apparently she was named after Ottora Countess Dougles, née Haas-Heye, Elizabeth's maternal grandmother.

There seems to be a description for every name. This is what I found somewhere in the internet:

Ottora Elisabeth Victoria Lucia


Ottora - the name of the newly-born's maternal great-grandmother
Ottora Haas-Heye, Countess Carl Ludwig Douglas.

Elisabeth (with "s" rather than "z"?) - the name of her mother,
Princess Elizabeth, and grandmother, Princess Max, born Countess
Elizabeth Douglas.

Victoria - the name of her great-great-grandmother, mother of Ottora
Haas-Heye, Grafin Viktoria zu Eulenberg, the daughter of a prominent
Prussian diplomat and politician, Philipp, Fürst zu Eulenburg und
Hertefeld (born in Königsberg, the former Capital of the Teutonic
Order, today still occupied by Russia, under the totally Soviet
name, Kaliningrad), a one time Prussian Ambassador to Bavaria, who
married a Swedish Countess.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philipp,_Prince_of_Eulenburg-Hertefeld

Grafin Viktoria married Otto Haas-Heye, a Heidelberg Professor and
aesthete, who creatively linked the world of Fine Art with women's
fashion in the post-1914 years in Germany. No wonder, then, that
Princess Max has an elegance and dress sense - and has imbued her
daughters with the same - quite hors pair.

Lucia - as Noel mentions, named after St. Lucy, whose feast it is on
December 13, the day when little Ottora was born. The feast of St.
Lucy is particularly popular amongst the Swedish people, as the day
when they light their Advent Candle (Lucy = Lux = Light) before
Christmas.

Hopefully the little one will be called Lucia, it´s such a lovey name IMO. :) December 13th "Luciadagen" is a great holiday in Sweden and (Ex-?) Duchess Elsiabeth´s mother is of Swedish origin so this might have been the reason of chosing this name as Lucia is a rather unknown saint in Germany unlike Nicholas etc.

Elizabeth's name is Terberger, but officially she still uses "Herzogin in Bayern". I am quite surprised that Ottora's second name Elisabeth is spelled with "s".

Patrick Graf Faber-Castell and his wife, actress Mariella Ahrens, called their daughter Lucia Marie Caroline. ;-)

It's all rather meaningless anyway. Their titles are not recognised.

Poldi?  That's the nickname of Prince Leopold of Bavaria (the former race car driver). Not Prince Luitpold.
