What does the title in Bayern mean? Well I know what it means in German - I don't know what it means as a title. All the German prepositions in titles seem to get translated to of which obscures the distinctions  Crazy Crazy Crazy

Do all the German 'nobles' work in TV and make programmes about each other?  Blink

According to Wikipedia:
"..On 16 February 1799, the head of the House of Wittelsbach Charles Theodore, Elector of Bavaria died. At the time there were two surviving branches of the Wittelsbach family: Zweibrücken (headed by Duke Maximilian Joseph) and Birkenfeld (headed by Count Palatine Wilhelm). Maximilian Joseph inherited Charles Theodor's title of Elector of Bavaria, while Wilhelm was compensated with the title of Duke in Bavaria. The form Duke in Bavaria was selected because in 1506 primogeniture had been established in the House of Wittelsbach resulting in there being only one Duke of Bavaria at any given time...."


Wilhelm was also the brother in law of Duke Maximilian Joseph. The last one Maximilian became the first king of Bavaria.

My seat-of-the-pants perception is that the more obsessed with titles  these folks are, the less power they possess.

Right on.

And I think the Wittelsbachs should get out of the Prince business and take up dental surgery   .

On Friday 21.06. Prince Leopold of Bavaria celebrated his 70th birthday. he is the great-great-great-great-grandson of King Ludwig I. of Bavaria and head of the so called adalbertinian line of the House of Wittelsbach.






Wonder if the SRF came again, 10 years ago for his 60th they attended.

PeDe  Flowers  as always, the expert on many things, but especially Bayern.  The Wittlesbachs fascinated me for quite some time, and through marriages that challenged genetics evolved to it's present state.  Maybe there's something in the water in Bavaria that gets to these Wittlesbach man and pro creating.

This summer I had a small conversation with a proud Bavarian man who was visiting another part of Germany. We among others discussed the Bavarian Royal Family. Apparently he was extra familiar with the family of Max Emanuel, Duke in Bavaria. His wife had teached all 5 daughters of Max Emanuel how to ski. And according to others present he was a bit surprised about the knownledge a non Bavarian (or even non German) girl had of the Bavarian Royal Family.

 Smiley

BTW I always found it striking how of the five daughters, duchess Helene stands out.
In comparison to her four sisters she is smaller and a bit plump. Also her hair colour seems to be darker. But based among others on facial features she is look a like to her sisters and parents. She is apparently also the only one who isn't married (yet).

In Germany and Austria, "in" or "von or zu" generally precedes the surname of a noble family, with a meaning identical to "de" in French or Spanish. I believe it's an older form of "von" = "von Bayern" = "of Bavaria"

I don't know about all "von und zu Arschlochs", but in this case I guess only a deposed could report about another deposed  Roll Eyes
"von und zu Arschlochs" I just repeated this to my husband to see if he understood and he nearly fell over laughing.  Laughing
