Ever came to the blog and wondered, "Who are they actually talking about?" Are you simply not able to put a face to the name you read about so many times? Here is your grossly oversimplified and (thus) comprehensible guide into the who is who of the Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg and the Princely Family of Liechtenstein.
The Grand Ducal Family of Luxembourg
Grand Duke Jean and the Family of Grand Duke Henri
Family of Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg
Family of Prince Jean of Luxembourg
Family of Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg
Family of Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg
Family of Prince Charles
Note: This guide does not claim to be complete, in most cases due to lack of photos of the person in question or due to woefully outdated visuals.
To make it complete: Prince Jean's first wife and mother of his children is Madame Hélène Vestur. Archduchess Marie-Christine and her husband Count Rodolphe have two sons named Léopold and Constantin. Archduke Imre and Archduchess Katheen have a daughter called Maria-Stella. Archduke Christoph and Archduchess Adélaïde have a daughter called Katarina. Prince Robert and Princess Julie have three children Princess Charlotte, Prince Alexandre and Prince Frederik. Princess Charlotte and her husband Englishman Marc-Victor Cunningham have three children, Charles, Louis and Donall.
Additionally, two of Grand Duke Jean's sisters are still living. His sister Princess Marie Gabriele married a Danish nobleman, the late Count Kund Holstein til Ledreborg. The Count and Princess Marie Gabriele had seven children. Grand Duke Jean's youngest sibling, Princess Alix, married the late Prince Antoine de Ligne. Prince Antoine was the head of one of the most grand princely houses in Europe. The Prince and Princess had seven children. Their oldest son Prince Michel is the current Prince de Ligne. Their son Prince Antoine married Countess Minthia de Lannoy who is related to the Hereditary Grand Duchess.
The Princely Family of Liechtenstein
Family of Prince Hans-Adam II and Family of Hereditary Prince Alois
Family of Prince Philipp of Liechtenstein
Family of Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein
Family of Princess Nora of Liechtenstein
Once again there are (in this case many) people missing. The Princely Family of Liechtenstein is considered to be the largest of all reigning European families as all male line descendants of Prince Johann I of Liechtenstein (1760-1836) born within a recognised marriage are members of the of the Princely House of Liechtenstein. Thus, there are easily more than 100 members. It would simply be to exhaustive (and exhausting) to cover them all on the blog as most of them don't even have a public profile and so there aren't any pictures of them.
As only the adventures of the descendants of Prince Franz Joseph II - there might be an occassional mention of other members of the family if they attended the same events - are covered on the blog, the who's who is only focusing on them. As pictures of the children of Prince Max, Prince Constantin, Princess Tatjana and Prince Alexander aren't all up-to-date, we decided to exclude them.
To make the list complete though: Prince Max and Princess Angela have one son, Prince Alfons. Prince Constantin and Princess Marie have three children, Prince Moritz, Princess Georgina and Prince Benedict. Princess Tatjana and her husband Philipp von Lattorff have seven children, Lukas, Elisabeth, Marie, Camilla, Anna, Sophie and Maximilian. Prince Alexander and Princess Astrid have one daughter, Princess Theodora.
