: it is interesting to note that Richard never
: used the "Fürst title": he never
: had his name changed. I remember an
: interview and he was asked about it.
I don't think one needs to actually change his surname in order to be Fürst rather than Prinz. The concept of surnames for these families postdates the era when they were legally recognized class. I don't think one should really be bothered with it when any official can find reason to deny a name change.
