Biography

Alois-Konstantin, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, full German name: Alois Konstantin Karl Eduard Joseph Johann Konrad Antonius Gerhard Georg Benediktus Pius Eusebius Maria, Fürst zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (born 16 December 1941 in Würzburg, Bavaria) is a German businessman and, since 1990, the head of the mediatised House of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg, the catholic cadet line of the Princes of Löwenstein-Wertheim, itself the patrilineally senior but morganatic branch of the royal house of Wittelsbach, which ruled the Kingdom of Bavaria until 1918.

Early life

Alois was born in Würzburg, the fifth child and only son of Karl, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg and his wife, Carolina dei Conti Rignon. He had four older sisters, Maria (wife of Joseph Archduke of Austria), Josephine (wife of Alexander Prince of Liechtenstein), Monika (wife of Don Jaime Mendez de Vigo y del Arco) and Christiane (wife of Michael Archduke of Austria), and two younger sisters, Elisabeth-Alexandra (wife of José Maria Trénor y Suarez de Lezo) and Lioba (wife of Moritz Eugen Prince of Oettingen-Oettingen and Oettingen-Wallerstein). He and his sisters spent their childhood in Bronnbach, and Alois attended school in Miltenberg.

Career

Alois graduated with a degree in law from the University of Würzburg. After working for Gulf Oil in Pittsburgh, he was director of Merck Finck & Co and LGT Bank. He is a commander of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, a knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece, and a board member of the Papal Foundation Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice (CAPP).
