Her 9th husband was Hans-Georg Lichtenberg, a german-american entrepeneur, who was adopted by Pss Marie-Auguste von Anhalt and from then changed his name to Frederic Prinz von Anhalt.

However, British press reports indicate that Princess Marie Auguste was bankrupt and the adoption was a business transaction, allegedly masterminded by Hans Hermann Weyer, a former window dresser who became the honorary consul of Bolivia in Luxembourg. Weyer was known for selling certificates of nobility, doctoral degrees from fictitious universities, and other spurious decorations in Germany in the 1960s. Lichtenberg was one of about 35 adults adopted by the Princess, some then styling themselves Princes of Anhalt
