Princess who sued Lord Rothermere arrives in US

December 22, 1939

Princess Stephanie of Hohenlohen-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst arrived today in New York. The Associated Press reports that the princess, who traveled under the name Mrs. M. Waldenburg, arrived on board the Holland-America liner Veendam.

The princess, a Hungarian national, recently lost a breach contact suit against British press baron, Lord Rothermere. In her court action, the princess "contended that she arranged a conference between Rothermere and Adolf Hitler."

The princess arrived with 106 pieces of luggage. She told reporters that she came to the United States for a "rest," and intended to travel to Nassau in the Bahamas.
