Hereditary Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont Josias (circa 1936-1942)


German Nazi politician, the heir apparent to the throne of the Principality of Waldeck and Pyrmont, and a general in the SS. From 1946 until his death, he was the head of the Princely House of Waldeck and Pyrmont. After World War II, he was sentenced to life in prison at the Buchenwald Trial (later commuted to 20 years) for his part in the "common plan" to violate the Laws and Usages of War in connection with prisoners of war held at Buchenwald concentration camp, but was released after serving about three years in prison.

He was the eldest son and heir of Prince Friedrich of Waldeck and Pyrmont and his consort Princess Bathildis of Schaumburg-Lippe.

Josias Waldeck-Pyrmont married Duchess Altburg of Oldenburg (1903–2001), a daughter of the former Grand Duke of Oldenburg, Friedrich August II, on 25 August 1922 at Rastede. They had five children.

He died on 30 November 1967, aged 71, in Schloss Schaumburg, near Diez an der Lahn, West Germany.
