The details


Albert Wolfgang, Count of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (born 6 July 1659 in Langenburg; died: 17 April 1715 in Langenburg) was the oldest child of Count Henry Frederick of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1625–1699) and his second wife Countess Juliana Dorothea of Castell-Remlingen (1640–1706).
He was head of the House of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and introduced primogeniture in Langenburg in 1699. This meant the oldest son would inherit the entire county, and younger sons would only inherit if the oldest were to die childless. From then on, younger sons would mostly embark on military careers, for example, in the imperial army, or in friendly nations.
