Re: Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria

There was a newspaper report in 1903 of the matrimonial troubles of Rupprecht and his wife Marie Gabriele. The report said that the marriage of Rupprecht and his wife Marie Gabriele was at first opposed by the parents on both sides owing to their near relationship, the report added that the "Prince and his wife" are cousins.
The couple were in fact second cousins once removed so I wouldn't necessarily say this was a near relationship.
