The details (from wikipedia)


Konrad, Prince of Saxe-Meiningen, Duke of Saxony (Given names: Full name: Johann Friedrich Konrad Carl Eduard Horst Arnold Matthias Prinz von Sachsen-Meiningen Herzog zu Sachsen; born 14 April 1952) is a German businessman and the current head of the Ducal House of Saxe-Meiningen.

Prince of Saxe-Meiningen

Prince Konrad was born in Ziegenberg, Hesse, the younger son of Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Meiningen. However, he is the only son by his father's dynastic second wife, Baroness Vera Schäffer von Bernstein (1914–1994). Although he is his fathers's second son, Prince Konrad was heir to the headship of the House of Saxe-Meiningen because his father's first marriage to commoner Margot Grössler was morganatic; and as such, his older half-brother, Prince Friedrich Ernst (1935-2004), did not have dynastic rights.

Upon the death of his father on 4 October 1984, Prince Konrad succeeded to headship of the House of Saxe-Meiningen. Since becoming head of the house, he is sometimes given the titular title Duke of Saxe-Meiningen, in addition to the title Duke of Saxony which all male members of the house of Wettin bear. In 1996, Prince Konrad began legal proceedings against the Russian government seeking the rehabilitation of property that had been expropriated after World War II by the Soviet Union.

Education and career

Prince Konrad studied economics at the University of Heidelberg and business management at University of Göttingen.

Professionally, Prince Konrad is a qualified banker who has worked for various banks as an analyst. Since 1998, he has been an independent advisor specialising in the restructuring of companies, and has also spent time working in the air and car industries. Currently, Prince Konrad is a partner in the Rudolf Döring Law Firm; and since 2007, he has been Managing Director of GWP German Wind Power GmbH.

Titles and styles

  • 14 April 1952 – present: His Highness Prince Konrad of Saxe-Meiningen, Duke of Saxony, Jülich, Cleves and Berg, of Engern and Westphalia, Prince of Saalfeld, Landgrave in Thüringia, Margrave of Meissen, Count of Henneberg, Camburg, of the March and Ravensberg, Lord of Kranichfeld, Ravenstein, etc. Konrad styles himself Duke of Saxe-Meiningen.


Prince Konrad is unmarried. His closest male relative (and the only other living male descendant of the House of Saxe-Meiningen) is his nephew, Prince Constantin (b. 1980), son of his half-brother, Prince Friedrich Ernst from his second marriage with Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, a half sister of Andreas, Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Should Prince Konrad leave no male heir, his nephew will probably take over the headship of the House of Saxe-Meiningen, thus suspending the dynastic marriage rules (with regard to his grandmother), as have already done the Houses of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach.

Prince Constantin of Saxe-Meiningen and Sophia Lupus has a son, Michael (b. July 2015). It is unclear whether the parents are married.If yes he could take the role as the head of the princely Saxe-Meiningen House.

Other male relatives include the Barons von Saalfeld, morganatic descendants of Ernst, Prince of Saxe-Meiningen.
