Princely wedding: Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg-Castell-Rüdenhausen

The Duke of Braganza has revealed in an interview with Ricardo Mateos that Prince Dominik of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg and Countess Olga of Castell-Rüdenhausen will have their religious wedding in Sintra, Portugal, on October 6.

Prince Dominik is the youngest son of Alois, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg and Princess Anastasia of Prussia.   Countess Olga is the second child and eldest daughter of Johann-Friedrich, Prince of Castell-Rüdenhausen and Countess Maria of Schönborn-Wiesentheid.

A destination wedding in Portugal is a bit of a tradition for Olga's family as her parents were married at the Quinta da Bela Vista in Piedade on June 11, 1983.  Her maternal grandmother, Donna Graziela Alvares Pereira de Melo, was Portuguese.  She was the daughter of Dom Antonio Alvares Pereira de Melo, Marqués de Cadaval, third son of Dom Jaime Caetano Alvares Pereira de Melo, 8th Duke of Cadaval.

Countess Olga is named for her maternal grandmother, Graziela, and for her maternal great-grandmother, Olga Nicolis di Robilant.

The present 11th Duchess of Cadaval, Diana Alvares Pereira de Melo, married to Prince Charles Philippe, Duke of Orléans, is the great-granddaughter of the 8th Duke of Cadaval.
