Gustav, Hereditary Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg - Brief Biography

Brief Biography

Prince Gustav is the hereditary prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, the senior branch of the formerly princely house of Sayn. He is a descendant of Queen Victoria and is in the line of succession to the British throne through her son Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, father of Princess Margaret of Connaught, whose daughter Princess Ingrid of Sweden was the mother of Gustav's mother, Princess Benedikte of Denmark.

He resides at Schloss Berleburg-Wittgenstein in the town of Bad Berleburg, in the district of Siegen-Wittgenstein, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, with his parents, Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Princess Benedikte of Denmark, and partner Carina Axelsson.

He has two sisters, Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

The principality and princely title of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg descended, historically, according to semi-Salic primogeniture. If the unmarried and childless Gustav dies without legitimate issue, the family heritage devolves upon his father's younger brother, Prince Robin zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

    There never was a good biography of a good novelist. There couldn’t be. He is too many people, if he’s any good.

    The death of Irving, which at any other time would have attracted universal attention, having occurred while these things were transpiring, went almost unobserved. I shall have to read of it in the biography of authors.
