The question of the House is quite difficult. While Alexander is the mostly recognized, the Rüdiger is quite opposing the claims and his website contains pretty strong language against Alexander. The nobitility association of the German Nobility stated a few months back, that the Royal Line of Saxony has come to an end and that none is entitled to the title of Markgraf of Meissen. It is said that the senior representative of the Wettins is now Michael of Sachsen Weimar Eisennach, but he does not claim the title of Markgraf and head of the RF of Saxony. All difficult and so very typical,of former ruling houses.
Quite a few have howevr ill afford disputes over the headship and of course usually about money.
