Does anybody know why Grand Duke Peter II's youngest son Georg Ludwig (27.6.1855-30.11.1939) didn't marry? Particularly since he was the only male agnat besides the Russian Oldenburgs and his uncle, who was morganatically married (Welsburg line) - untill his brother produced boys in his second marriage. Seems like he was the designated heir of the Holzappel-Schaumburg inheritance from his Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym mother, untill the Waldecks won the succession dispute. He also served as Leader of the Grand-Ducal Oldenburgish Forest Office in Eutin (in the Principality of L├╝beck), where he also died.

What is the palace used for nowadays? A museum? What properties did the family keep after the revolution?
