Paul Fürst von Quadt dead at 80

Schwäbische Zeitung
Paul Franz von Assisi Georg Ghislain Edmund Maria Alexander Fürst von Quadt zu Wykradt und Isny died on March 16.  He was 80 years old.   The prince was the fourth child of the late  Alexander Fürst von Quadt zu Wykradt und Isny and Countess Maria-Anna Esterhazy von Galantha.   Following the death of his father in 1936,  Paul's oldest brother, Alban, succeeded as the new Prince.  He was killed in action in September 1942.  The title should have passed to the second son, Count Peter, but he chose to renounce his rights in favor of Paul following Alban's death.   Paul was only eleven years old when he succeeded to the title.

In September 1955 he married Princess Charlotte of Bavaria, daughter of Duke Albrecht.   He is survived by his wife and four children,  Alexander, who succeeds as the new Fürst,  Maria-Anna Countess Schenk von Stauffenberg, Maria Georgina Countess von Eltz gennant Faust von Stromberg and Count Bertram.

Bertram is now the heir presumptive as Alexander and his wife, Martina, have three daughters, Philippa, Charlotte and Anna.  Bertram and his wife, Sandra, have no children.
