Prince Hermann Leiningen

Prince Hermann of Leiningen

His Serene Highness, Prince Hermann Friedrich Fernando Roland zu Leiningen.

Through his mother, he is a grandson of King Boris III of Bulgaria and a great-grandson of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy. Through his father, he is a great-great-great grandson of Queen Victoria, which is how he is in line of succession to the British throne.

His line is from Queen Victoria’s second eldest son, Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. As a result he’s a very distant royal that comes with a fancy title, but no real power or money. When he was born on April 16, 1963 he was something like 50th in line to the British throne. Today’s he’s all but fallen off of the list.

On May 16, 1987 he married Deborah Cully in Belfast, and together they had three children.

  • Princess Tatiana of Leiningen (born August 27, 1989)
  • Princess Nadia of Leiningen (born December 16, 1991)
  • Princess Alexandra of Leiningen (born December 18, 1997)
