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.
