I Am Kin To Queen Victoria

I am kin to Queen Victoria and her lineage via Dorothea Renata, who married Heinrich, who founded a Merovingian Church. Nikolas married Heinrich’s sister! Astounding! Here is the Royal Bohemian Brethren, and the Royal Bohemian Sisters! This is a dream come true! It is Divine Providence that led me to find this Union, that came to Pennsylvania, and planted a Moravian Colony where my great grandfather, John Heil, lived.

The world, and the United States, is in dire need of a new church, that stems from the old church, and is the church that  planted the seed that Martin Luther, watered. The Catholic Church is on the ropes. The evangelical church has become entangled in radical and racist politics. Alas, a reconciliation between the Protestant Church and the Catholic Church, is possible. Many royals in Victoria’s Protestant Tree, have converted to Catholicism after marrying a noble from this church. The Moravian Church, is the Middle Way. I will inform Karl Schwarzenberg and his sister of my amazing find!

Queen Victoria, and William and Harry Windsor, descend from………..

Dorothea Renata, Countess von Zinzendorf-Pottendorf and Woflgang Dietrich, Count von Castell-CastellEdit

  1. Sophie Theodora von Castell-Castell (1703-1777)

Victoria married her first cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in 1840. Their nine children married into royal and noble families across the continent, tying them together and earning her the sobriquet “the grandmother of Europe”. After Albert’s death in 1861, Victoria plunged into deep mourning and avoided public appearances. As a result of her seclusion, republicanism temporarily gained strength, but in the latter half of her reign, her popularity recovered. Her Golden and Diamond Jubilees were times of public celebration.

Heinrich XXIV, Count Reuss of Ebersdorf (22 January 1724 in Ebersdorf – 13 May 1779 in Ebersdorf), was ruler of the German county Reuss-Ebersdorf from 1747 till his death.

He was the eldest son of the thirteen children of Heinrich XXIX, Count of Reuss-Ebersdorf and Sophie Theodora of Castell-Remlingen. He was the grandfather of King Leopold I of Belgium and the great-grandfather of Queen Victoria (through his daughter Augusta).

Heinrich XXIV succeeded his father as Count of Reuss-Ebersdorf in 1747.

Heinrich XXIX, Count of Reuss-Ebersdorf
Born 21 July 1699
Died 22 May 1747 (aged 47)
Noble family House of Reuss
Spouse(s) Sophie Theodora of Castell-Remlingen
Father Heinrich X, Count of Reuss-Ebersdorf
Mother Erdmuthe Benigna of Solms-Laubach

Heinrich XXIX, Count of Reuss-Ebersdorf (born 21 July 1699 in Ebersdorf; died: 22 May 1747 in Herrnhaag) was a member of the House of Reuss Younger Line and Count Ebersdorf from 1711 until his death


Heinrich was the son of Count Heinrich X Reuss of Ebersdorf and his wife Erdmuthe Benigna of Solms-Laubach. They raised Heinrich strictly according to the guidelines of the Pietism. Heinrich soon befriended Count Nicholas Ludwig von Zinzendorf. He married on 7 September 1721 in Castell with Sophie Theodora (1703–1777), daughter of Count Dietrich Wolfgang of Castell-Remlingen and Countess Dorothea Renata of Zinzendorf (1669-1743). At Heinrich’s wedding, Count Nicholas Ludwig met Heinrich’s sister, Erdmuthe Dorothea. They married exactly one year later.

Under Count Heinrich XXIX, a Moravian Church was founded in Ebersdorf, after the model of the church von Zinzendorf had founded in Upper Lusatia at Herrnhut. Because class differences were largely eliminated in this church, the whole village met in the ballroom of the palace to pray and sing hymns. The Count and his servants were to treat each other as “brothers” while in church.
