House of Reuss and Hidden Bohemian Seed

I am kin to……………

Princess Anni-Frid Synni of Reuss, Countess of Plauen (née Lyngstad;[a] born 15 November 1945), better known by her nickname Frida, is a NorwegianSwedish singer, songwriter, and environmentalist.[1] She is best known as one of the lead singers of the Swedish pop band ABBA.

I am also kin to…………Erdmunthe who helped her husband plan his trip to America in order to plant THE HIDDEN SEED of their Moravian Church!

The Lord of the vineyard has returned, and is snipping away at the parasitical weed that John Darby and his false church attached the Bohemian roots that Jan Huss planted!

I cast this Rapture Weed into the flames of Eternal Damnation – with much joy!

Erdmuthe Dorothea, Countess of Zinzendorf, née Countess of Reuss-Ebersdorf (7 November 1700 in Ebersdorf  – 19 June 1756 in Herrnhut) was a German Pietist and hymn writer.

Erdmuthe Dorothea von Reuss was born on 7 November 1700 in the village of Ebersdorf, in Thuringia.[1] She was the daughter of Count Henry X of Reuss-Ebersdorf and his wife, Erdmuthe Benigna of Solms-Laubach. She had a pietistic upbringing according to the principles Philip Jacob Spener.

In 1721, at the wedding of her brother, Henry XXIX, she met his friend Count Nikolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf, who had originally wanted to marry Henry’s bride, Sophia Theodora of Castell-Remlingen (1703–1777). Exactly one year later, she married him. The marriage was described as combative, based on a mutual decision to strive for mutual goals, rather than convenience or love. They had twelve children, among them, Christian Renatus von Zinzendorf.

Erdmuthe, who had learned from her mother how to administer a county, took over the business of managing her husband’s possessions in Berthelsdorf and the newly founded settlement of Herrnhut. In the Moravian Church, she ran the orphanage, in addition to raising her own twelve children. After her husband’s first expulsion in 1732, he transferred his possessions to her. She toured several European countries together with her husband and during his eleven years of exile, she administered his assets and managed the Moravian Church.

In 1755 her husband returned from exile in London. They had grown apart during his exile, and lived separately after his return: he resided at his castle in Berthelsdorf; she lived in Herrnhut. After the death of her last son, Christian Renatus, her health began failing.

Counts of Plauen

One of the younger sub-lines of the branch which ruled the Reuss, J.L. until 1918, includes the “Counts of Plauen” from the late 19th century. When Prince Heinrich XXVI Reuss (1857-1913) married Countess Viktoria von Fürstenstein (1863-1949) in 1885, under the strict marriage rules then enforced by the Reuss dynasty, although he was but a younger son of a minor ruling family, their children were not allowed to bear the dynasty’s princely title. They were, instead, designated “Counts of Plauen“, although they remained in the line of succession to the two thrones of Reuss[1] The Fürstensteins lacked Uradel status: Viktoria’s paternal grandfather, Pierre Alexandre LeCamus 1774-1824, son of a French notary living in Martinique, rose to became foreign minister in Jerome Bonaparte‘s Kingdom of Westphalia, was ennobled there in 1807 and made a count of the French Empire in 1817)[verification needed].[2]

When the German Empire collapsed at the end of World War I, the reigning Prince Reuss lost his crown along with all the other monarchs whose realms were within Germany. In 1927, Henrich XXVI’s son, known as Count Heinrich Harry of Plauen (1890-1951), was adopted by his childless uncle, Prince Heinrich XXX (1864-1939), and the now-deposed dynasty agreed to accept him as “Prince Heinrich Harry Reuß”, along with those of his male-line descendants born of unions complying with the family’s 1902 rules that permitted marriages to countesses (Heinrich Harry’s wife, Huberta von Tiele-Winckler was only a baroness in her own right, but belonged to a family of comital rank in Prussia).[1] Their son Heinrich Enzio was thus accepted by the House of Reuss as a prince, but his own marriage to Baron Gustaf Peyron’s daughter in 1949 occurred before the Reuss family conference of 1957 which lowered the marital standard again,[1] allowing dynastic inter-marriage with baronial families.

Strictly, therefore, since 1996 the House of Reuss recognized Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss by that title, but without official membership in the dynasty or entitlement to the traditional style of Serene Highness,[1] while in German law the title is allowed since 1919 only as part of the surname, thus “Heinrich Ruzzo Prinz Reuss”.

Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss, Count of Plauen (German: Heinrich Ruzzo, Prinz Reuß von Plauen; 24 May 1950 – 29 October 1999), known as Prince Ruzzo Reuss for short, was a Swiss-born Swedish landscape architect and, by tradition, a prince of the formerly sovereign House of Reuss.[1] His branch ruled the Principality of Reuss-Gera until 1918.[1] He was married to his second wife, former ABBA singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad until his death, who became Princess Reuss of Plauen following the marriage.

Biography[edit]

Born in 24 May 1950 in Lucerne, Heinrich Ruzzo was the son of Prince Heinrich Enzio Reuss-Plauen (1922–2000) and a Swedish mother, Louise Peyron (1918–1989), daughter of Baron Gustaf Peyron and Emma Kockum.[1] The Peyrons had immigrated to Sweden from France in 1740, been ennobled in Sweden in 1825, granted a barony in 1841 and were received into the Swedish House of Nobility the following year. Louise Peyron was an artist.
