Prince of Prussia (1896) Sigismund (1910)


Prussian prince, as the second son of Prince Heinrich and his wife, Princess Irene of Hesse and by Rhine. He was a nephew of Kaiser Wilhelm II and Tsarina Alexandra of Russia. A great-grandson of Queen Victoria through both his parents, he was the only one of three brothers who did not have the hemophilia common among her descendants.

On 11 July 1919 at Hemmelmark, he married Princess Charlotte of Saxe-Altenburg (4 March 1899 – 16 February 1989), eldest daughter of Ernst II, Duke of Saxe-Altenburg. They had two children.

Prior to emigrating from Europe to South America, he served as a marine officer. In 1927, Prince Sigismund and his family resettled in Costa Rica. He planned to engage in banana and coffee planting on land he owned there. They were accompanied by only a governess, as the children were still young.

Sigismund died in Puntarenas on 14 November 1978.
