Handicapped German Princes and Princesses
« on: December 29, 2005, 12:30:33 PM »
I'm very much interested to find any pics of these princesses as adults. I know they both were/are institutionalized, but does anyone have a photo of these princesses?

I think there is a topic around on Princess Alexandrine of Prussia (1915-1980), daughter of Crown Princess Wilhelm of Prussia and Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

I know Cornélie is handicapped.
What does she suffer from ? Down's syndrom ?

I have one photo of Alexandrine as a woman in her 20s, and that may have been the last time she was photographed in public.  She had Down's syndrome, and was institutionalized before the second world war, and remained in various institutions until her death.  She did not attend family events.

Cornelie Cecilie has not attended any family events in some years.  I suspect she also suffers from Down's Syndrome.

I know, that the successor of Prussian royal family and a crown of German Empire Georg-Friedrich Hogenzollern has the sister. This sister is name Cornelia Cecilia. It was born in 1978.  Unfortunately, I could not find a photo of Cornelia Cecilia. Somebody can place its photos here? I shall be very grateful.

Her name is Cornelie Cecilie.  She is mentally handicapped and lives in a home.  She appeared in photos at her mother's second marriage a decade or so ago.

Dear Marlene

Title cant be familyname! this familyname is von Hohenzollern.

(and please belive me I m baltic german and my familyname and title are separated as well.)


"von" means "from" in german, and this family is from Hohenzollern

I am totally right. 

You provided the link to the PRINCELY FAMILY  - Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen --where the head of the family is the Fürst von Hohenzollern - and members of the family are princes or princesess of Hohenzollern.  (and have the legal surname Prinz or Prinzessin von Hohenzollern.

The former Kaiserliche branch - descendants of the Kings of Prussia and German Emperors -- are von Preussen not von Hohenzollern (the House name is Hohenzollern),  but the title is Prince or Princess of Prussia, and the legal surname is Prinz or Prinzessin von Preussen.


The royal house is the House of Hohenzollern with the title Prince or Princess of Prussia 
and the rank HRH

The princely house is Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen with the title Prince or Princess of Hohenzollern and the rank HSH

Please visit www.preussen.de

Im agree to all you said, but you tryed to tell in first letter, than Hohenzollern is not the part of the name!

you cant avoid familyname and only use a title use title (many members of this family has more than one title and its not propriate use them all together- you use the firstone and on that you are right Prints von Preussen.)

FYI

I know rather a lot about the Prussians and the princely hohenzollerns - as I am an expert on Queen Victoria's descendants, and have written several books.  Moreover,  I also happen to know members of both families - so am well familiar with family names, titles, etc.
