Exactly what I thought.  The author of the article asked the descendent why her father used the title of prince, she replied that he was a branch of the Eristovs.  What is the possibility of this title?  Is this a case of a soi-disant Prince trying to get a social background in America?

I was wondering if anyone has any information on "Prince" George Meshki-Gleboff?  He is featured in an article in the Los Angeles Times Column One dated Jan. 10, 2009, regarding Imperial Jewelry.  It can be found by pasting this website into your brower:,0,7867764.story

I thank you in advance for your time.

Has anyone had a chance to read Horacio Silva's article in the recent New York Times Style Magazine?  It states that Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis has introduced teas, jams, chocolates, cookies, and sweetly scented candles as part of Gloria von Thurn und Taxis' Tea Time Collection.  It also talks about her wholehearted immersion in the Roman Catholic Church, her large donations to the Church, her hosting conservative Catholic salons, and her trips to Lourdes under the auspices of the Knights of Malta.  The article ends with Horacio asking," I asked Princess Gloria if she had heard the rumors that her friendship with Princess Alessandra Borghese, a fellow conservative Catholic, was of the biblical kind, 'Yes' she said. 'But I don't think that it really matters.  I think that everyone has the right to decide for him- or herself what they want to do behind bedroom doors, and no one of us would ever judge that. And I don't think the Catholic Church does that.' "

 I think a very interesting reply from the wife of Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis!
