Prince Luitpold of Liechtenstein, 76, passed away on May 11, in Judenburg, Austria, where he has lived and been active in philanthropic projects for many years. These projects include Simultania Liechtenstein and the Styrian Forest Association.

He was born Prince Luitpold Rudolf Georg Hubertus, the elder child of Prince Aloys Géza Georg Hubert Maria and Hertha-Maria Gräfin Wolffskeel von Reichenberg. Prince Luitpold married twice (first to Ulrike Gräfin von Habsburg-Lothringe, and second to Edith Pelchen) and had two sons from his first marriage, Friedrich and Carl. He is survived by his younger son Carl and his wife Edith. His great-great grandfather was Prince Eduard Franz of Liechtenstein, the 11th child and 5th son of Johann I Joseph, Prince of Liechtenstein.

The service will be held on May 21 at the Church of St. Nicholas in Judenburg. Prince Luitpold's widow has requested donations to Simultania Liechtenstein in lieu of flowers.
