I know the Thurn and Taxis family formally owned the castle plus huge estates (comprising mainly forest) at Litomyšl (Litomischl) in eastern Bohemia. Did they actually reside there and when was the castle confiscated by the Czechoslovak state?

I´m still looking for information about Paul von Thurn und Taxis and his son Heinrich von Fels. Mostly information regarding his last 15 years and what happened to his son Heinrich.

Thousand eyes may see better than two, thanks.

The picture a bow is that of Paul von Thurn und Taxis, it’s part of a family group photo, I would like to find the original version, it would be wonderful if you could post it here.

And the last question

And information about the book: "Keinen Kuß mehr! Reinheit! Königtum!" It's on Ludwig's homosexuality and was written by Klaus Reichold. 

Has this book ever been translated into English?
If yes, what is it’s title?

"The title does not pass through females or to adopted children" as an adopted child you actually has the same rights as if it was your naturall parrents. So wouldn´t it only be so because it´s a female adopting.

Charming pictures of Gloria's girls but sadly the British royals tend to avoid continental Europe for their spouces either common, royal or aristocratic. It's a war thing....poor old Princess Michael is still treated with great suspicion. I was surprised someone claimed Princess Alexandra of Hanover was not royal.....duh?

Anthony van Dyck
Portrait of Maria Louisa de Tassis (1611–1638), c. 1629/30
 
 

This picture is considered one of Van Dyck’s most beautiful portraits. The sitter is Maria Louisa de Tassis, the niece of the Imperial Postmaster in Antwerp, Maximilian de Tassis. Facing the viewer is a young woman, approximately nineteen years old. She is wearing a magnificent dress made from skilfully worked silk and lace.

The opulent, almost pompous clothing with the multiple rows of pearl jewellery and the heavy jewels contrast with the obvious youth of the sitter who greets the viewer with a cautious smile.

Her unaffected charisma lends the distinguished pose a certain liveliness. Van Dyck’s technical approach displays the range of possibilities available in portraying the haptic qualities of a surface. The gentle, warm tones of the light brings to life the many folds of the sitter’s puffed up dress and the fluffy feathers of the fans.

Inhalt Acht Frauen des Hauses Thurn und Taxis aus fünf Jahrhunderten - Frauen, wie sie unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten: von der Gräfin zur königlichen und kaiserlichen Hoheit, von der nicht standesgemäßen Ehefrau bis zur Hochadeligen Frau Gemahlin. Sie waren tatkräftig und emanzipiert, charmant und schön, politisch und sozial engagiert, literarisch interessiert und künstlerisch tätig, aber auch unglücklich, verschwenderisch und gefährlich:

Alexandrine von Rye, Gräfin von Varax -
Augusta Herzogin von Württemberg -
Elisabeth von Train -
Therese Herzogin von Mecklenburg-Strelitz -
Wilhelmine Freiin von Dörnberg -
Helene Herzogin in Bayern -
Margarete Erzherzogin von Österreich -
Mariae Gloria Gräfin und Herrin von Schönburg-Glauchau


There will be a chapter about Nene, so maybe we will get some more information about her.

There are just german articles, here an example about Gloria of Thurn and Taxis.

She is so weird. But it´s her point of view.
