Prince August Wilhelm and Prince Joachim of Prussia, the fourth and sixth sons of former Kaiser Wilhelm II, are suing their wives for divorce, reports the New York Times.

Prince August Wilhelm is married to Princess Alexandra Viktoria of Schleswig-Holstein.  They married in 1908.  Prince Joachim married Princess Marie Auguste of Anhalt in 1916. 

There have been no "previous reports of marital troubles" for either of the princes.  Both were wounded in the war.  Since the end of the "hostilities" and the collapse of the monarchy,  Prince August Wilhelm, known as Auwi, has been working as a bank clerk and an automobile salesman.
