Heinrich is a German given name of ancient Germanic origin and cognate of Henry. Female forms are Henrike and Henriette. The most famous patron saint is Henry (died 1024), as the German Emperor Henry II.

The House of Reuss practises a unique system of naming and numbering the male members of the family, every one of whom for centuries has borne the name "Heinrich", followed by a Roman numeral. While most royal and noble houses assign a regnal number only to the ruling head of the house, and that in the sequential order of their reigns, the Reuss Junior Line ("Reuss, J.L.") used a numbering sequence for all male family members which began afresh with the first son born in each century. Note also that the male children within a single nuclear family need not bear sequential numbers, as all members of the larger family share the common numbering system. For example, the sons of Prince Heinrich LXVII Reuss of Schleiz, in order of their births, were named Heinrich V, Heinrich VIII, Heinrich XI, Heinrich XIV, and Heinrich XVI, with their male-line kinsmen holding the numerals in between according to the order of their births. In consequence of this naming system, certain heads of the Reuss Junior Line have had the highest numbers attached to their name of any European ruling families. The designation of "Junior Line" was dropped in 1930; the Elder Line ("Reuss, A.L.") had become extinct as its last male member, Heinrich XXIV, renounced his rights as sovereign in 1918 and died unmarried in 1927.

Several women were lined up as possible brides for Albert Victor.

She would later marry Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, another of Albert Victor's cousins, in 1894.

At first, Queen Victoria opposed any engagement because Hélène was Roman Catholic. Victoria wrote to her grandson suggesting another of her grandchildren, Princess Margaret of Prussia, as a suitable alternative, but nothing came of her suggestion, and once Albert Victor and Hélène confided their love to her, the Queen relented and supported the proposed marriage. Hélène offered to convert to the Church of England,and Albert Victor offered to renounce his succession rights to marry her.

On 3 December 1891 Albert Victor proposed to his second cousin once removed  Princess Mary of Teck (1867-1953) Her status as the only unmarried British princess who was not descended from Queen Victoria made her a suitable candidate for the royal family's most eligible bachelor, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale The wedding was set for 27 February 1892. However, Albert Victor died six weeks later, in a recurrence of the worldwide 1889–90 influenza pandemic. Mary would go on to marry Albert Victor's younger brother  Prince George, Duke of York. They would later become King George V and Queen (-consort) Mary of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions and Empress consort of India.

The pair had dated for nine years and were only allowed to marry when Harald gave his father the ultimatum that if he was not allowed to marry Sonja he would not marry at all, which would have ended the reign of his family and the Norwegian monarchy, as Harald was the sole heir to the throne. The couple have two children, Princess Märtha Louise and Crown Prince Haakon, heir apparent to the Norwegian throne.


Prince Harald of Denmark (Harald Christian Frederik)(1876 – 1949) was a member of the Danish Royal Family. He was the third son and fourth child of Frederick VIII of Denmark and his wife, Lovisa of Sweden, and thus brother to Christian X of Denmark. In 1909 at Glücksburg Castle in Schleswig-Holstein, Prince Harald married his second cousin Princess Helena of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, daughter of Frederick Ferdinand, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and Princess Karoline Mathilde of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg. The couple had 5 children.

Prince Harald of Schaumburg-Lippe (Harald Christian Leopold Gustav)(1948) in Schloss Hagenburg, Niedersachsen) is the third son of Prince Christian of Schaumburg-Lippe and Princess Feodora of Denmark (daughter of previous mentioned prince Harald of Denmark) and the great-grandson of Frederick VIII of Denmark, a member of the Danish Royal Family. He married Petra Wera Kirstein in 1976; they divorced in 1980. He married Gabrielle Hagermann in 1988. He is in the line of succession to the British throne as a descendant of George II of the United Kingdom's daughter Queen Caroline Matilda of Denmark and Norway.

Haakon, also spelled Håkon (in Norway), Hakon (in Denmark), Håkan (in Sweden), or Hákon, is an older spelling of the modern Norwegian form of the Old Norwegian masculine first name Hákon meaning "High Son" from há (high, chosen) and konr (son, descendant, kin). An old English form is Hacon as in Haconby, Hacon's Village.

Haakon was the name of kings of Norway.


King Haakon I of Norway, Haakon the Good
Haakon Haraldsson (c. 920–961), also Haakon the Good (Old Norse: Hákon góði, Norwegian: Håkon den gode) and Haakon Adalsteinfostre (Old Norse: Hákon Aðalsteinsfóstri, Norwegian: Håkon Adalsteinsfostre), was the king of Norway from 934 to 961. He was noted for his attempts to introduce Christianity into Norway. According to the saga tradition, Haakon was the youngest son of King Harald Fairhair and Thora Mosterstang.

King Haakon Magnusson of Norway
Haakon Magnusson (Old Norse: Hákon Magnússon, Norwegian: Håkon Magnusson)(1068 –  1095), byname Toresfostre (Old Norse: Þórisfóstra, meaning "fostered by Tore"), was king of Norway from 1093 to 1095. Haakon was only partially recognized within Norway and his reign was thus of limited significance. He has generally not been counted in the numbered series of Norwegian kings

King Haakon II of Norway, Haakon Herdebrei
Haakon II Sigurdsson (1147 –  1162), also known as Haakon Herdebrei, was King of Norway from 1157 until 1162 during the Civil war era in Norway. His nickname, Herdebrei, means broad-shouldered. An illegitimate son of Sigurd Munn, in 1157 he was named heir of his uncle Eystein II, who had been co-ruler of Norway together with his brothers Inge Haraldsson and Sigurd Munn. Inge had become the sole ruler of Norway after the death of Eystein and Sigurd Munn.

King Haakon III of Norway, Haakon Sverreson
Haakon III Sverresson (Norwegian: Håkon Sverresson, Old Norse: Hákon Sverrisson) (1182 – 1204) was King of Norway from 1202 to 1204. Haakon was born as the second illegitimate son of the future King Sverre, then a Faroese adventurer. Historian P. A. Munch suggested that Haakon III's mother could have been Astrid Roesdatter, daughter of Bishop Roe in the Faroe Islands, but this has not been supported by later historians.


King Haakon IV of Norway, Haakon the Old
Haakon IV Haakonsson (1204 – 1263) (Old Norse: Hákon Hákonarson; Norwegian: Håkon Håkonsson), sometimes called Haakon the Old in contrast to his son with the same name, was King of Norway from 1217 to 1263. His reign lasted for 46 years, longer than any Norwegian king since Harald Fairhair. Haakon was born in Folkenborg (now in Eidsberg) to Inga of Varteig in the summer of 1204, probably in March or April.The father was widely regarded to have been King Haakon Sverresson, the leader of the birkebeiner faction in the ongoing civil war against the bagler, as Inga had been with Haakon in his hostel in Borg (now Sarpsborg) in late 1203. Haakon Sverresson was dead by the time his son Haakon was born, but Inga's claim was supported by several of Haakon Sverresson's followers.



King Haakon V of Norway, Haakon V Magnusson
Haakon V Magnusson (1270 – 1319) (Old Norse: Hákon Magnússon; Modern Norwegian: Håkon Magnusson) was king of Norway from 1299 until 1319. Haakon was the younger surviving son of Magnus the Lawmender, King of Norway, and his wife Ingeborg of Denmark. Through his mother, he was a descendant of Eric IV, king of Denmark. In 1273, his elder brother, Eirik, was named junior king under the reign of their father, King Magnus. At the same time, Haakon was given the title "Duke of Norway". In 1295, Haakon married firstly with Isabelle, daughter of Jean I, Count of Joigny, but she died in 1297 without issue. In early 1299 he married secondly with Euphemia, daughter of Vitslav II, Prince of Rügen, who in 1301 bore him his only legitimate daughter, Ingeborg Håkonsdotter. In 1319, Haakon was succeeded by his daughter's son, Magnus VII, who was an infant. Haakon's daughter Ingeborg was recognized as formal regent of her son. Havtore Jonsson was put in the guardianship government until he himself died the following year.



King Haakon VI of Norway, Haakon VI Magnusson
Haakon VI of Norway (Norwegian: Håkon, Swedish: Håkan)(1340–1380), also known as Håkan Magnusson, was King of Norway from 1343 until his death and King of Sweden between 1362 and 1364. He is sometimes known as Haakon Magnusson the Younger to distinguish him from his great-grandfather, Haakon V (reigned 1299–1319). Haakon was the younger son of Magnus Eriksson, king of both Norway and Sweden. His older brother Eric was meant to succeed their father on the throne of Sweden, while Haakon was made king of Norway in his father's lifetime. Magnus greatly favored Haakon over Eric, leading to the latter's rebellion and seizure of Southern Sweden. Eric died in 1359, and Haakon became co-ruler of Sweden with his father three years later. The two reigned over Sweden together until 1364, when they were deposed in favor of Magnus' sororal nephew, Albert of Mecklenburg, by a clique of exiled Swedish noblemen led by Bo Jonsson Grip. Magnus and Haakon tried to retake the Swedish throne, but without success. In 1363, Haakon married Margaret, daughter of Valdemar IV of Denmark. The marriage, itself a significant element in the Nordic power struggle, resulted in the birth of one son, Olaf.



King Haakon VII of Norway, formerly known as Christian Frederik Carl Georg Valdemar Axel
Haakon VII (born Prince Carl of Denmark)(1872 – 1957) was the King of Norway from 1905 until his death in 1957. Originally a Danish prince, he was born in Copenhagen as the son of the future Frederick VIII of Denmark and Louise of Sweden. In 1896 he married his first cousin Princess Maud of Wales, youngest daughter of the future King Edward VII of the United Kingdom and his wife, Princess Alexandra of Denmark, eldest daughter of King Christian IX and Princess Louise.  Their son, Prince Alexander, the future Crown Prince Olav (and eventually king Olav V of Norway), was born in 1903. After the Union between Sweden and Norway was dissolved in 1905, a committee of the Norwegian government identified several princes of European royal houses as candidates to become Norway's first king of its own since 1387. Gradually, Prince Carl became the leading candidate, largely because he was descended from independent Norwegian kings. He also had a son, providing an heir-apparent to the throne, and the fact that his wife, Princess Maud, was a member of the British Royal Family was viewed by many as an advantage to the newly independent Norwegian nation. In 1905 Carl was elected, and he accepted the offer the same day.


Haakon, Crown Prince of Norway, (If he succeeds as expected, he will be known as Haakon VIII)
He is the only son of King Harald V and Queen Sonja (née Haraldsen), and heir apparent to the throne of Norway. Haakon married a commoner and single mother Mette-Marit Tjessem Høiby in 2001. When the engagement between Crown Prince Haakon and Høiby was announced, many Norwegians felt that his choice of wife was inappropriate. This was primarily about her being a single mother, but information concerning her involvement in the rave scene in Oslo, which included a significant drug-subculture, also added to the controversy. In addition, the father of her child was convicted of drug-related offences. In a heartfelt press conference before the wedding the bride explained her past, saying among other things that her youthful rebelliousness might have been stronger than most young people. The issue of Mette-Marit's past is an ongoing discussion in Norwegian public discourse. The couple have two children together: Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway (2004) and Prince Sverre Magnus (2005). Haakon is also the stepfather to Mette-Marit's son Marius Borg Høiby.
