I think in time they got to accept it. At least her mother since they were photographed years later with sister Mary in Gmunden.

Not much they could do as Bismarck squirreled away the Hanoverian fortune  and left them with no funds . With Victoria's daughter as the next Prussian Queen ..no friends in London and then their daughter legs it with a servant , gawd!

Yes...although part of the belongings were returned to them. Emperor Franz Josef was kind to the Hanoverian Royal Family. A part of the fortune were returned to them, which Ernst August bought the villa at Gmunden. Queen Marie lived at the Dower house there with Mary, while he lived with Thyra & family in the big house. The Austrian Emperor also given Ernst August and his family the use of a palace (now known as Cumberland Palais) in Vienna. It was only after VL married their son, that the entire fortune was returned to the Hanoverian Royal Family.

Did Queen Marie Live long enough to see Marienburg Castle return to the family ? I don't think so...nor did Thyra lived there.

They also owned the Dower House in Gmunden (while the big house became a hospital).

Queen Victoria was active in helping recover the Hanoverian fortune...also during the decade or more it took for restitution to be made they were not totally without funds...much had be salvaged including the crown jewels and the Queens personal gems.

There are many photos of the large house in Gmunden, especially in the wedding postcards issued during the time of VL'smarriage to Ernst August in Berlin. The dower house I never seen the building from the outside. However there are much interior shots of Dowager Queen Marie in her living room, outside the terrance with her daughters Mary & Freddy.

Very interesting.  I hadn't heard about this. 

Is it just me or has Ernst August lost some weight?

Well, he didn't find himself in court, he actually found his way to court. This was his doing.

He is trying to get the 2004 sentence reduced; can't blame him at all...he owes a ton of money to the victim.

He may succeed. The facts of the case appear as if the victim's "injuries" were quite exaggerated, claiming to need hospitalization from two punches to the chest and stomach with a ring doing substantial damage. Huh? A ring causing damage, through clothes, requiring hospital treatment? Sounds like a typical legal money-grab to me.

In any event, Grandmother VL would be disappointed.

Found himself,found his way,never mind in this case of the  most degenerate of european Royals.He'll continue to find his way,found his way or ordered that way into another courtcase soon enough.He subscribed to them in a way, long agp.

Would my general impression that Ernst August is a violent alcoholic be exaggerated or not, I wonder?

Ernst August married a very rich woman, Chantal Hochuli - and the marriage was approved by his father.  Over the years, he cheated on his wife, but the final straw was his rather open relationship with Caroline (who was one of Chantal's friends.)   
Any pictures of the current Ernst of Hanover and his wife (and Children) Caroline of Monoco.  Anybody have and info on why his first marriage failed.  Was not his first wife a commoner?

Who is the current heir and how old is he?  Pictures?   The heir is EA's elder son, Prince Ernst August, who was born in 1983.  He has a brother, Prince Christian, born in 1985.  They were born in Germany, but educated largely in the UK.
