This summer a friend of mine was at a noble wedding and saw Fürst Otto and Fürstin Sophia zu Castell-Rüdenhausen there. She was clearly pregnant. When they got engaged and married there was an announcement on the website of the municipality of Rüdenhausen where they live, but not this time. The same friend recently informed me that she had heard that the birth had been listed in a list of births in a newspaper in Würzburg, which unfortunately wasn’t online. I luckily still had an emailaddress for the general representative of the family.
The answer came pretty soon:
I am happy to announce that Fürst and Fürstin zu Castell-Rüdenhausen became the proud parents of a son on October 13, 2020.
The name is Lelio Johann-Friedrich Theodor, mother and child are doing well.
Congratulations to the parents! I am not too sure where the name Lelio comes from, but Johann-Friedrich was the late father of the Fürst, who died in 2014. And Theodor is the name of the father of the Fürstin.
