Thank you Josť! That makes sense. Do you know if any documentation / announcement concerning the renunciations has ever appeared in published form, perhaps in an article about Anita? Or is the story of her and the children's renunciation more of an apocryphal one, not yet supported by written evidence?
It would be interesting to know the renunciation date for this reason: After prolonged wrangling with her future husband and his father to guarantee her equality of rank and title with her husband when they married, I wonder if perhaps Anita waited until after her father-in-law's death before communicating her renunciation.
