Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee heir marries Indonesian actress

Hereditary Count Ludwig Franz Willibald Maria Josef Leonhard von Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee is the eldest of three children of the Prince and Princess of Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee.   He is the Category Manager at the Lazada Group in Indonesia.   He received his college degree from Royal Holloway, University of London.

Lazada is described as Southeast Asia's "biggest and fastest growing e-commerce company."

Ludwig was born at Ravensburg, Germany, on July 12, 1990.  His father, Johannes, succeeded as the head of the house in September 1998 following the death of his father, Max Willibald.  

Johannes married at Fiesole, Italy, on April 29, 1989 to Viviana dei Conti Rimbotti.  Ludwig has a younger sister, Countess Vittoria, and a younger brother, Count Leonhardo.

The family lives at Schloss Wolfegg.  They are Roman Catholic.

On December 11, 2013,  Hereditary Count Ludwig married Indonesian actress Jessica (Yesisca)  Iskandar.  The wedding took place at the Gereja Yesus Sejati (True Jesus) Church in Jakarta.  The wedding was registered on January 8, 2014.   The Rev. Simon Jonathan officiated at the wedding.  I do not know if this church is a Roman Catholic church, but if  the couple were married in another Christian church without a dispensation for the groom, the marriage would not valid in the eyes of the Roman Catholic church.  (The marriage is legal according to civil law.)

Miss Iskandar was born on January 29, 1988 at Jakarta, the daughter of Hardi Iskandar and Wuri Wulandari.

She studied interior design at university, while working as an actress.  In 2007, she said in an interview that she would retire from acting when she turned 25 as she wanted to be a wife and mother.

The Jakarta-born bride and her husband are now said to be living in San Francisco, California, where, in May, she announced that she was expecting a baby.  A recent news report from an Indonesian newspaper states that Jessica recently gave birth to a son, presumably in the United States.

I am surprised that the German media have not written about this marriage and relationship.  Ludwig's parents have not made any announcements, and it is not known (publicly) if this marriage was approved by Ludwig's father. 

If this marriage is not approved by Prince Johannes,  Ludwig will cease to be the Hereditary Count.  The new heir would be his younger brother, Count Leonardo.  

To reiterate, the Waldburg zu Wolfegg und Waldsee family have not made any announcement regarding the marriage or the birth of a son.

Since when Germany becoming a Kingdom country? I tough they are an Republic?. and BTW I'm Indonesian, Jessica Iskandar actually is a Muslim girl (altough her mother is Christian but her father is a Muslim) but last year she's declared that she was a muslim, so I don't know if the so called "German King" approve this marriage... and BTW Lazada is lame online market in Indonesia, so I feel sorry for those so called "German Prince" future...good luck for that!

Ludwig's family has not made a public statement about the marriage. However, Jessica married in a church, and Muslims do not marry in churches.

The marriage was never registered at the German embassy in Jakarta, as required for German nationals who marry abroad. Moreover, it was not a Roman Catholic ceremony (which means it is not valid in the Catholic church). However, we now know that the marriage did not take place in the church, as stated by the church.

But, as a good guy, he will responsible everything he has done!

Angela Bokslag said...

Do you know where is he now? And if He is a nobleman, where does he lives in German?

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

Angela,

This article mentions his family home, Schloss Wolfegg. If you do a search in the search box, you will find numerous articles on this story. Ludwig lives in Dublin, where he works for Google.

Poor child. He has to suffer this all just because of the parents. Well my opinion is that as a father he has to be responsible and show care and love for the child. Lets say the marriage isn't legal or whatsoever is called,but this is not only about the marriage that Jessica asks him to show up. Just to see their child. If for him it's only about winning or the image of the family then well it's a shame because they don't have big heart and love. Just remember that karma exists and people make mistake especially young people who love and make love and end pregnant then real problem come and well just lack of luck for the woman when the man doesnt want to take the responsible and guts to face the reality. Hopefully everything will be ok. For the sake of the little boy who didn't ask to be born to this world. Cheers

Where is Ludwig now? Yesterday was Jessica's Birthday! Hope He wants to come to Indonesia for test DNA, and meet up his son.

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

They were never married. Jessica apparently allowed a fake marriage to be registered. Courts ruled against her a few months ago. Ludwig apparently lives in Dublin where he works for Google, according to Linked In.

Yes, maybe they are never married. But El Barack still his son.
