When was the last time that somebody born a member of the house of Brunswick became a Catholic?
Johann Friedrich, uncle of of Elector Georg I of Hannover, became Catholic in 1651.
Maximilian Wilhelm, younger brother of Elector Georg I of Hannover, became Catholic in 1692.
Elisabeth Christine, daughter of Duke Ludwig Rudolf (of the Wolfenbüttel line), became Catholic in 1707, in preparation for her 1708 marriage to Charles of Austria (in 1711 elected Holy Roman Emperor).
Are there more recent examples?
