Pauline von Metternich-Winneburg (1880–1960), daughter of Fürst Paul Clemens Lothar von Metternich-Winneburg (1834–1906), married Maximilian Theodor Egon Lamoral of Thurn and Taxis (1876–1939).

Are there any pictures of the couple? Or of Paulinas husband Maxmilian Theodor of Thurn and Taxis? All members of younger lines are usually unknown...

I am sorry Rani, I think it must be mistake. This portrait, which is very beautiful, is from begining of 18th century, decades before Elisabeth Hillebrand was born...

The writer of the book "Die Fürstinnen of Thurn und Taxis" Marita a. Panzer took it into her book. She said that could be Elisabeth. Maybe you are right!?

I wonder why she let the situation go so far to an engagement with one brother when she was in fact  in love with the other brother. In her first engagement picture one sees  that she is not happy. But in every picture she has  sad eyes. Even in her wedding day, she is not so a happy bride.

She did not leave him at the altar ...

I knew she had broken her engagement with R-R and ran to Ph-E but I had no idea she actually left her fiancée standing at the altar.

What a scandal it might have caused...

I guess the two brothers were not that close, at least from that moment on :-)

Amalie Sophie Prinzessin von Thurn und Taxis, daughter of Maximilian Karl and Mathilde Sophie zu Oettingen-Oettingen und Oettingern-Spielberg
12 May 1844 - 12 February 1867
Married Otto Graf von Rechberg und Rothenlöwen zu Hohenrechberg on 19 April 1865. She died on 12 February 1867 at age 22 at Montreux, Cantin Vaud, Switzerland.
I would love to have informations about her. She died in the same year like her half-brother Maximilian Anton.

Thanks ! It is clear to me now. Did the couple had children ?


Prince Raphael Rainer and princess Margarete had one son, prince Max Emanuel, born 1935. Prince Max Emanuel has two sons from his second, morganatic, marriage, to a Christa Heinle. Both sons are in marrying age, but I have no information on whether they are married or not. All sources I have seen list them both as unmarried.

One question...is Gloria and her family in good terms with other Thurn und Taxis relatives?Do they all know eachother or do they visit Regensburg?Don't know if the palace belongs to all Thurn und Taxis family or just to Gloria and her children?
