The 1910 (2nd) edition of the reference work *The Nobilities of Europe* lists the following dukedoms (herzog) within the German lower nobility (thus not counting sovereign dukes):
Bielitz (Bohemia) [Prince Sulkowski]
Krumau (HRE-Bohemia) [Prince of Schwarzenberg]
Leuchtenberg (Bavaria) [Prince Romanowsky]
Lodi & Melzi (Austria)
Rarecourt de La Vallee (Bavaria)
Raudnitz (HRE) [Prince of Lobkowitz]
Ujest (Prussia) [Prince of Hohenlohe-Oeringen]
Worth und Donaustauf (Bavaria) [Prince of Thurn & Taxis]
I have two questions:
1. Do all of the agnates of these houses have the title herzog/herzogin or only the heads of house? In the latter case, are all other members prinz/prinzessin?
2. Which of these houses are still extant today?
Thanks for any help!
