Biography

Georg, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe (10 October 1846 – 29 April 1911) was a ruler of the small Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe.

Biography

He was born in Bückeburg to Adolf I, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe and Princess Hermine of Waldeck and Pyrmont (1827–1910).

He succeeded as Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe on the death of his father on the 8 May 1893 and reigned until his death on the 29 April 1911 at Bückeburg and was succeeded by his son who became Adolf II.

Family

Georg was married on the 16 April 1882 at Altenburg to Princess Marie Anne of Saxe-Altenburg, a daughter of Prince Moritz of Saxe-Altenburg.

They had nine children:

  • Prince Adolf II (1883–1936)

Silver wedding anniversary

On the occasion of their silver wedding anniversary in 1907, Emperor Wilhelm II presented to Georg and Marie Anne the family ancestral seat, Schaumburg Castle. The castle had been controlled by the Hohenzollerns ever since Georg's grandfather sided with the Austrians in the 1866 Austro-Prussian War. The gift was also meant to be in recognition of Georg's support in the dispute over the succession to the Lippe-Detmold throne.
