Sachsen, huh, is she wearing a Dirndl? It's ill-fitting from the waist up, it needed to sit much tighter. Other than that I like it, and I like the veil and the flower wreath in her hair as well.

Thank you for the thread MW  Star


Edit: duh....I just looked closer at the photo's, they are all in Trachten (traditional clothing)

Quote
After his first wife's suicide by drug overdose, Prince Ruediger married for a second time in January 2004 to Diana Dorndorf. The marriage was short-lived however as the couple divorced in 2005. Following his divorce Prince Ruediger placed a lonely hearts advertisement in the German newspaper Bild in the hope of finding a princess to marry

Descendents of Saxon Kings have Died




July 23, 2012
The Prince died on Monday at the age of 86 in his house in La Tour de Peitz, Genfersee. He was the head of the former royal house of Saxony, Wettin's Albertian line and called himself the Markgraf of Meissen. His grandfather was Friederich August III (+1932) and was the last Saxon King.


Childless Marriage
The Markgraf was the recipient of numerous distinctions. He bore the grand cross of the Sovereign Order of Malta as well as a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece. The deceased is survived by his wife, Anastasia-Louise Markgraf of Meissen.  Their marriage was childless.

The Successor
The new head of the House of Wettin will be the adopted son Alexander Prince of Saxony, Duke of Saxony. He lives in Germany and Mexico. Prince Alexander is the son of the deceased's sister.

Visitation in Tyrol
The viewing of the Markgraf will be in the new Saxon Royal Chapel in Imst-Brennbichl in the Tyrolean highlands with close family members. The crypt is on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, where the grave of the Apostle James is located.

Closely Bound to Saxony
The Prince remained true to his homeland in Saxony. He visited the residential city of the House of Wetting in Dresden, so often as his health allowed.
There he regularly arranged a Holy Mass in the Tridentine Liturgy for his relatives. He visited the grave sites of his predecessors, who were interned in the local church in the crypt of the Wettin family. 49 members of the Albertian line of the House of Wettin as well as their marriage partners and children found their last resting place, among others the King of Saxony, Friedrich August I. (+1827), Friedrich August II. (+1854), Albert of Saxony (+1902) and finally Friedrich August III., the grandfather of the deceased.

A small funeral, attended by members of the family, laid to rest the earthly remains of the late Margrave of Meißen, Maria Emanuel of Saxony. The mourners gathered at the Wettin Royal Chapel in Brennbichl, Austria. Surrounded by towering peaks, this small chapel was chosen by members of the Royal House of Saxony to be the site of their family necropolis.

The immediate family of the late Margrave were present to lend their support to his grieving widow, while also paying their respects to a truly nice man. Surrounding the Margravine Anastasia-Luise were her nephew Alexander, the new Margrave of Meißen, his wife Gisela of Bavaria and their four children. Also attending the funeral ceremony was Prince Albert of Saxony, who was accompanied by his widow Elmira. They were the couple that had tried to revoke a family accord that settled the Royal Saxon succession.

The earthly remains of Maria Emanuel were placed in a sealed zinc coffin, which was then placed inside an oak coffin. During the ceremony the Royal Saxon standard covered the coffin.

Had Maria Emanuel ruled Saxony, his reign would have last nearly four and a half decades as his father, Friedrich Christian, the first Margrave of Meißen, passed away in 1968. The last King of Saxony, Friedrich August III, died in 1932. Among his siblings was Maria Josepha, who in 1886 married Archduke Otto of Austria, a nephew of Emperor Franz Joseph. Otto and his wife were the parents of two sons: Archduke Karl, who in 1916 succeeded as the last Austro-Hungarian monarch, and Maximilian, who was the father of Archduke Ferdinand and Archduke Heinrich. Ferdinand's children include Archduke Maximilian, who resides in Madrid, and Fürstin Sophie zu Windisch-Grätz, who resides in Italy. Their mother is Archduchess Helen (née Toerring-Jettenbach), the only daughter of Princess Elisabeth of Greece, herself the middle daughter of Grand Duchess Helen Vladimirovna of Russia.

It was also reported that previous to the funeral ceremony, the new Margrave, Prince Alexander, met with his uncle Prince Albert (who had claimed the title immediately after Maria Emanuel's death). As a result of this meeting, yet to be confirmed by Prince Alexander to us, Prince Albert is said to have initiated a reconciliation and told the press, "I just want peace in the royal house!"

October 6, 2012
Dresden - Albert Prince of Saxony Duke of Saxony is dead.



SKH Dr. Albert Prinz von Sachsen Herzog zu Sachsen IKH Elmira Prinzessin von Sachsen Herzogin zu Sachsen


The grandson of the last king of Saxony Friedrich August III (1865-1932) died on Saturday night at the age of 77 years in a Munich hospital. The news was announced by the royal family on Sunday.

The prince leaves his wife Elmira Princess of Saxony, Duchess of Saxe.
Prince Albert was born in 1934 in the Bavarian town of Bamberg. He studied history, economics, and folklore and last lived in Dresden and Munich.

He remained close to his native Saxony all his life, as shown by the many publications of his relating to the Free State.
A date for the funeral has not yet been announced.




Prince Albert of Saxony, Duke of Saxony, Margrave of Meissen (Albert Joseph Maria Franz-Xaver; 30 November 1934 - 6 October 2012)[3] was the disputed head of the Royal House of Saxony and a German historian. The fourth child and youngest son of Friedrich Christian, Margrave of Meissen and his wife Princess Elisabeth Helene of Thurn and Taxis, he was the younger brother of Maria Emanuel, Margrave of Meissen, his predecessor as head of the Royal House of Saxony.

Albert married morganatically to Elmira Henke in a civil ceremony on 10 April 1980 in Munich, and in a religious ceremony on 12 April 1980, in the Theatine Church, also in Munich. Elmira assisted Albert with his scientific and historical studies; she specialized in ethnographic topics. Albert and Elmira have no children.

After the early death of Prince Johannes, the heirless Maria Emanuel then began to look at his eldest nephew Alexander Afif, the eldest son of Princess Anna of Saxony and her husband Roberto Afif, despite the Afif-Saxony marriage being against the traditional laws of the House of Saxony which required equal marriages.

1997
The Margrave of Meissen proposed his nephew Alexander Afif as heir and drew up a document that was signed by the other male and female members of the Royal House (including previously morganatic spouses of princes who were now treated as dynasts being attributed the style of Royal Highness) setting out that Alexander Afif would succeed on his death.

The document was signed by: Prince Albert and his wife, Anastasia, Margravine of Meissen, Prince Dedo (for himself, his brother Prince Gero and for their stepmother Princess Virginia), the Princesses Maria Josepha, Anna and Mathilde, and Princess Erina the third wife and widow of Prince Timo.  

1999
The Margrave adopted his nephew Alexander Afif giving him the family name Prinz von Sachsen Herzog zu Sachsen.

1997
The agreement proved to be controversial, the Meissen families were in dispute.

2002
Three of the signatories retracted their support for the agreement. The following year Prince Albert wrote that it is through Prince Ruediger and his sons that the direct line of the Albertine branch of the House of Wettin will continue, and thus avoid becoming extinct.

Following the death of Maria Emanuel in July 2012, Prince Albert assumed the position of head of the Royal House of Saxony. The former Alexander Afif citing the 1997 agreement has also assumed the headship. Then Albert, Margrave of Meissen died at a hospital in Munich on 6 October 2012.

Thank you PeDe. I gather that the family's former territory made up a significant part of the GDR so they would have been unable to visit before unification.

you are most welcome, TLLK.

And you are right, it would have been difficult to visit, hence their residence in Tirol, and Munich respectively.
