hohenzollern sigmaringen

I had to make this post.

I was blamed to attack and all my comments deleted from a IG i liked so because I said that these tiaras wasnt the same and for asking about the sources.

I know sometimes i can sound harsh because of my lack of knowledge in english language, its not my intention tho, i hate to be rude and i hate drama in general ( in special online drama) , but i also HATE misinformation.

These two coronets are different ones, both owned by two different branches of the Hohenzollern.

The first one is the prussian one, owned first by Kaiserin Augusta Viktoria of Prussia, then owned by grandson, Louis Ferdinand and used by his spouse, Princess Kira Kirillovna ( as you can see in the images i shared, in the 50s)

Later on, that coronet was modified in two tiaras (very dull ones, i must say, even tho i love Aquamarines, which is my birth stone lol)

I ignore who owns those tiaras now i hope they re still in hands of the prussian descendants of Louis Ferdinand.

Now, the Hohenzollern Sigmaringen nuptial coronet. Used in the 40s by twins sisters, Princess Maria Antonia and Princess Maria Adelgundes in their wedding. Afterwards it was used by their sister in law, Princess Birgitta of Sweden in her wedding in Sigmaringen (lets remember that she used the cameo tiara in the Swedish ceremony)

So, looking in details and with graphic and historial info avalaible, is clear to say that these two are TWO DIFFERENT CORONETS!! And no, the Hohenzollern Sigmaringen coronet its NO the Prussian clover modified

Trustworthy sources as Royal Magazin and The court jeweller agrees with this.

So please, reblog and/or share this, because with Birgitta s birthday, the misinformation about these two tiaras spread like the plague all over royal groups and pages in general.

Thanks ❤️

The Steel Crown of Romania was forged of the steel of a cannon captured by the Romanian Army from the Ottomans during the War of Independence. King Carol I chose steel, and not gold, to symbolize the bravery of the Romanian soldiers. It was used at the coronation of King Carol I in 1881, King Ferdinand I and King Mihai I. The crown can be seen at the National Museum of Romanian History in Bucharest.

Die Burg Hohenzollern is the ancestral seat of the imperial House of Hohenzollern. The third of 3 castles on the site, it is located atop a 234 m bluff rising above the towns of Hechingen & Bisingen in the foothills of the Swabian Alp in Baden-Württemberg, Southwestern Germany.

The House of Hohenzollern is a dynasty of former princes, electors, kings, and emperors of Hohenzollern, Brandenburg, Prussia, the German Empire, and Romania. The family arose during the 11th century. Their first ancestor was mentioned in 1061. They derived from the Burchardinger dynasty. The family split into 2 branches, the Catholic Swabian branch and the Protestant Franconian branch, which later became the Brandenburg-Prussian branch. The Swabian branch ruled Hohenzollern-Hechingen and Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen until 1849, and also ruled Romania (1866-1947). Members of the Franconian branch became Margrave of Brandenburg in 1415 and Duke of Prussia in 1525. The Kingdom of Prussia was created in 1701, eventually leading to the unification of Germany and the creation of the German Empire (1871),  with the Hohenzollerns as hereditary German Emperors and Kings of Prussia. Germany’s defeat in WW1 (1918) led to the German Revolution. The Hohenzollerns were overthrown and the Weimar Republic was established, thus bringing an end to the German Monarchy. Read more.

Kaiser Wilhelm II was the last German Emperor. He ruled until 1918.

The House of Hohenzollern is a dynasty of former princes, electors, kings, and emperors of Hohenzollern, Brandenburg, Prussia, the German Empire, and Romania. The family arose in the area around the town of Hechingen in Southwestern Germany during the 11th century and took their name from Hohenzollern Castle. The first ancestor of the Hohenzollerns was mentioned in 1061. The family split into 2 branches, the Catholic Swabian branch and the Protestant Franconian branch, which later became the Brandenburg-Prussian branch. The Swabian branch ruled the principalities of Hohenzollern-Hechingen and Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen until 1849, and Romania from 1866 to 1947. Members of the Franconian branch became Margrave of Brandenburg in 1415 and Duke of Prussia in 1525. The Margraviate of Brandenburg and the Duchy of Prussia were ruled in personal union after 1618 as Brandenburg-Prussia. The Kingdom of Prussia was created in 1701, eventually leading to the first unification of Germany and the creation of the German Empire in 1871, with the Hohenzollerns as hereditary German Emperors and Kings of Prussia.
Germany’s defeat in WW1 (1918) led to the German Revolution. The Hohenzollerns were overthrown and the Weimar Republic was established, thus bringing an end to the German monarchy. Georg Friedrich, Prince of Prussia, technically is the current head of the royal Prussian line, while Karl Friedrich, Prince of Hohenzollern is the head of the princely Swabian line.
