Prince of Hohenzollern Leopold


German nobleman, as the head of the Swabian branch of the House of Hohenzollern, who played a fleeting role in European power politics, in connection with the Franco-Prussian War.

He was born into the dynasty's surviving Sigmaringen branch, which inherited all the dynasty's Swabian lands when the Hohenzollern-Hechingen branch became extinct.

Leopold's parents were Josephine of Baden and Karl Anton, Prince of Hohenzollern. Leopold was the older brother of King Carol I of Romania and father of the future King Ferdinand of Romania. Carol ascended the Romanian throne in 1866, and Leopold renounced his rights to the Romanian succession in favour of his sons in 1880.

He died on 8 June 1905, aged 69, in Berlin.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Journal de La Haye, 1 Oct 1835, p. 1: "ALLEMAGNE.— SIGMARINGEN, 22 septembre. S.A. Madame la princesse héréditaire est accouchée heureusement ce matin, à son château de Krauchenwies, d'un prince. 101 coups de canon ont annoncé cet heureux événement aux habitans de la ville et des environs."

(GERMANY.- SIGMARINGEN, September 22nd. Madam the hereditary princess was happily delivered this morning, at her castle of Krauchenwies, of a prince. 101 blows of cannon announced this happy event to the inhabitants of the city and the environs).

A morning time of 6 AM is speculative.
