I think the ruling was that the head is free to select his heir, so there is no legal requirement for GF to marry equal. However his grandfather selected him as his heir based on the marriages of his father and uncles so if he were to change that system he might be considered a hypocrite. He would have to resign as head and either let the headship of the family pass to his father's younger brother (the next in line with equal marriages) or to the oldest male line of Wilhelm II. |
But as he is said to date a princess so he seems to be able to follow his heart and keep the within the requirements of the will of Wilhelm II.
: I had read that the original Will stipulating
: that the head of the house must marry
: equally was more of a financial arrangement
: than designating who the head of the house
: is (something the German courts have no
: jurisdiction over). Although Georg Friedrich
: is recognized as head of the house, I
: remember reading that the stipulation that
: the inheritor of the estate be married
: equally could only be ordered for a few
: generations and that Georg Friedrich will be
: able to marry whomever he chooses without
: violating the Will. I may be wrong but that
: is what I remember.

: His entire status as head of the family is

: his parents and the fact that his father's

: he needs to marry a woman of royal or noble

: The Prussian Royal and Imperial families has

: about the head of the house Prince Georg
: Friedrich. Does anyone have any current news

: hearing he was dating someone that was from
: an aristocratic family but I'm not sure
: about that. Is he still under pressure to
: marry someone of equal or acceptable status?
