Hans Adam II and his family face a tough duel ahead after losing Marie of Liechtenstein, after being hospitalized for several days as a result of cerebral infarction.
A new tragedy has completely shaken the ‘royal’ world. Marie from Liechtenstein has died at the age of 81 as a result of a cerebral infarction because she had been hospitalized since last Wednesday. This loss has left the family of Hans Adam II completely devastated and, through a statement issued by the House of the Prince, it has been made official.
“Her Highness Princess Marie of Liechtenstein died on August 21, 2021, at 4:43 pm in Grab hospital. Since her health deteriorated after the stroke on August 18, 2021, she is accompanied by her family. She passed away in peace and with great trust in God “… With these words, they said goodbye to the consort while mourning bells rang throughout the country in her honor.
Marie de Liechtenstein was born in Prague in 1940. Five years after her arrival in the world, her family fled to Germany after being expelled from her native Czechoslovakia. There, she decided to direct her life to the world of graphic arts and pursued his higher studies at the University of Munich. She carried out different jobs and in 1965 she agreed with Hans Adam II. Since then they have created their own large family and are the parents of four children (Alois, Maximiliano, Constantin, and Tatiana), and their 15 grandchildren have been the joy of their lives.
Both Marie and Hans Adam II had been away from public life for years and since 2004 Luis (Alois), their eldest son, has been in charge of the management of the Principality, thus becoming the reigning prince of Liechtenstein, one of the smallest countries in Europe located between Austria and Switzerland.
But, without a doubt, the most striking thing is that Marie was about to become the mother-in-law of Felipe VI. In the past, many women have been related to the current husband of Queen Letizia but the rumors that confirmed a relationship between the father of Leonor and Sofía Tatiana of Liechtenstein gained a lot of force in the year 95. Everything pointed out that a beautiful love story had been born between them and the little daughter of Marie and Hans Adam was running as the Queen of Spain. A fact that caused it to become a great attraction for the Spanish press.
But, unsurprisingly, it was all hearsay since the evidence of that alleged romance is non-existent. Tatiana has always maintained a life away from the spotlight with Baron Philipp von Lattrof, father of her seven children.
