Princess Victoria gets injunction against book

December 6, 1927

Princess Victoria of Schaumburg-Lippe, a younger sister of former Kaiser Wilhelm II, has obtained an injunction against Rochus von Reinfelden, a writer who has penned a new book about the princess and her loves.

According to the Associated Press's dispatch, a Berlin court issued a preliminary injunction against the publication of The Love Romance of Princess Victoria and Alexander Zubkoff.   The ruling noted that "there was danger that the publication may contain opinions and claims which ought to be interdicted even if the persons described are historical characters.
Von Reinfelden's book is said to "contain details" about Zubkoff's earlier life, as well as to "dwell at length on Victoria's youthful love" for Prince Alexander of Battenberg, Prince of Bulgaria.
