Princess to give up rank for love

December 17, 1922

Princess Marie Rose of Hohenlohe-Bartenstein is to "descend from royal rank and give her heart and hand to a lowly school teacher in Bartenstein named Waldemeier."

The Princess has succeeded in "overcoming opposition" from her parents, the Prince and Princess of Hohenlohe-Bartenstein. Her mother is the former Archduchess Anna of Austria. This is a true love match, and the princess and her suitor have gone to Salzburg to "obtain the consent of her grandmother, the Grand Duchess of Tuscany."

Note: the groom's name is Josef Hugo Waldenmeier.
