The lawyer for King Friedrich August of Saxony met today with the lawyers representing the king's former wife, the Countess Montignoso to demand that she "relinquish custody of her child, Princess Anna." The King has decided to take action in the Italian courts to obtain full custody of his youngest child.
Friedrich August's lawyer, Dr. Koerner, announced today that he would make public his interview with the Countess, who, he said, recognizes the king's right, under the law of Saxony, to claim his child, but she refuses to give her daughter to Dr. Koerner.
Dr. Koerner has also denied that he "used violent or offensive language" to the Countess, who was born Archduchess Louisa of Austria, Princess of Tuscany.
