Prince of Hohenlohe-Öhringen Hugo


German nobleman, politician, mining industrialist and general in the armies of the kingdom of Württemberg and the kingdom of Prussia. He founded one of the largest zinc smelting plants in the world.

A hereditary prince of the House of Hohenlohe, he was born in Stuttgart and died at Slawentzitz Castle. He was the son of August, Prince of Hohenlohe-Öhringen.

He married Pauline Wilhelmine, youngest child of Charles Egon II, Prince of Fürstenberg. His daughter Margaret of Hohenlohe-Öhringen (1865-1940) married William of Hohenzollern, count of Hohenau (1854-1930), son of Albert of Hohenzollern, prince of Prussia.

His grandfather, Frederick Louis, Prince of Hohenlohe-Ingelfingen, had acquired the estates of Slawentzitz, Ujest and Bitschin in Silesia by marriage in 1782, an area of 108 square miles. Hugo inherited these lands, besides his Franconian properties Öhringen and Neuenstein, and established calamine mines. The Prussian king, William I, later German Emperor, created him Duke of Ujest upon his coronation in 1861.

He died on 23 August 1897 at age 81.
