: I am trying to trace the ancestry of Prince
: Peter zu Hohenlohe.
: He comes from the Oehringen line but he is
: not mentioned in Theroff's An Online Gotha.
: Peter Prinz zu Hohenlohe-Oehringen is the
: son of Friedrich-Carl Graf von Gessler and
: of Dagmar Engelbrecht. He was born in 1945,
: three years before his parents married.
: They divorced a year later and his mother
: married Kraft-Alexander Prinz zu
: Hohenlohe-Oehringen. Peter was adopted by
: his mother's second husband.
So he is not what we would call a Prince of Hohenlohe-÷hringen? It's only his surname? (Yes, I know that these titles were abolished in Germany after the first world war, but I ignore that.)
