Princess Jutta wants Germany to pay for her father's favorites

Jutta, Crown Princess of Montenegro
January 9, 1926

The German Parliament continues to discuss the requests of the former ruling families.  The requests keeps Germany "gaping in shocked surprise," reports the Chicago Daily Tribune.

The heirs to the throne of Mecklenburg-Strelitz have filed a "sensational claim," demanding that the German republic pay $5,000 each "to the titled women who had romances" with the late Duke Adolf Friedrich II, who died in 1914.

The former Crown Princess Jutta of Montenegro, the late Duke's youngest daughter, received $2,000,000 from the 100,000 residents of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, but she "insists that the republic pay for the ladies who cheered her father."

The government of Mecklenburg-Strelitz has refused to comply with the princess' demands, and an "arbitration committee decided there was a moral as well as financial side to the question."

Straighten me out here. I thought her father was ADOLF FRIEDRICH V who was married. Her brother ADOLF FRIEDRICH VI was unmarried and had 2 illegitimate children. Where did I run off the tracks?? Did the father really have many many affairs?
