(I posted this on April 11, 2022. Five days later I met a masked young woman named Bowie and began to tell her about my series, when I was rudely interrupted. What I was going to write, is that the Czech-Republic gives back the Schwarzenberg Castles to Rosamond descendants of the Sensheim royalty that were thought to be extant. They want Americans to have a vested interested in being a member of NATO now that Killer Putin is on the rampage. After the castles are passed out, the Czech Government is shocked to learn they moved the descendants of Real Hillbillies into their Luxurious Sleeping Beauty Castles. Some of them are real good at Clogging and playing Bluegrass. Putin and Kirill were not….pleased! A spy was sent to infiltrate them.)

As Russia’s war of aggression continues to ravage its neighbor, the Kremlin’s propaganda apparatus has been more blatant than ever before in outlining the country’s goals for its biggest nemesis: the U.S.

Last week, American intelligence officials reportedly assessed that Russian President Vladimir Putin may use the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine as a pretext to order a new campaign to interfere in U.S. elections. Though AP reported that “it is not yet clear which candidates Russia might try to promote or what methods it might use,” Russian state media seem to be in agreement that former U.S. President Donald Trump remains Moscow’s candidate of choice.

The time is coming “to again help our partner Trump to become president,” state TV host Evgeny Popov recently declared. On Thursday’s edition of the state television show The Evening With Vladimir Soloviev, Putin’s pet pundits offered an update on plans for 2024.

“We’re trying to feel our way, figuring out the first steps. What can we do in 2023, 2024?,” Russian “Americanist” Malek Dudakov, a political scientist specializing in the U.S., said. He suggested that Russia’s interference in the upcoming elections is still in its early stages, and that more will be accomplished after the war is over and frosty relations between the U.S. and Russia start to warm up. “When things thaw out and the presidential race for 2024 is firmly on the agenda, there’ll be moments we can use,” he added. “The most banal approach I can think of is to invite Trump—before he announces he’s running for President—to some future summit in liberated Mariupol.”

Dmitry Drobnitsky, an omnipresent “Americanist” on Soloviev’s show, suggested that Tulsi Gabbard should be invited along with Trump. Dudakov agreed: “Tulsi Gabbard would also be great. Maybe Trump will take her as his vice-president?” Gabbard has recently become a fixture of state television for her pro-Russian talking points, and has even been described as a “Russian agent” by the Kremlin’s propaganda machine.

If state television is any indication, the real agenda of the Kremlin’s operatives was never limited to boosting any particular candidates, but rather aimed to harm America as a whole. Dudakov stressed: “With Europe, economic wars should take priority. With America, we should be working to amplify the divisions and—in light of our limited abilities—to deepen the polarization of American society.”

County, Mississippi and died on 27 Feb 1963 in Kosciusko, Attala

Oprah Winfrey and the Rosamond Family Roots in Kosciusko

My grandmother, Mary Magdalene Rosamond, was appalled when her husband wanted her German daughters to be associated with Hillbillies. Mary’s Wieneke ancestors had fled Bismark’s Kulturekumpf as members of the Order of Saint Francis. Looks like Royal Rosamond got his way when he named his second born daughter, Bertha Mae. Royal’s mother, was Ida Louisiana Rose. Here are some more names from down in the Delta that sound like women out of Lil Abner.

Lillie Mae Rosamond
Anna May Rosamond
Lola Mae Rosamond
Eva Mae Rosamond (1902 – 1973)

Born in Choctaw, Mississippi, USA on 29 Dec 1902 to Wade Hampton Rosamond and Lillie Mae Rosamond. Eva Mae married Tommy Jefferson Ray and had 4 children. She passed away on 18 May 1973 in Bossier City, Bossier, Louisiana, USA.

At Island Park I beheld a long-legged beauty in cut-offs walking my way. She almost was a double for Rena, whom I compared to Moonbeam McSwine. When I went in front of the stage to do my Nazarite Charismatic Mojo, I saw her smiling in the front row. I almost asked her to dance, but, then my dream would be over, because I would have to die.

Did it ever occur to anyone the Lord wanted Moses to live forever? Yes…….Jesus got it, the riddle.

What even my liberal friends can not understand – because they are jealous – there are original roots to the most enduring things – a Genesis! Most of them fuckable redneck cowgirls for Jesus, are poured into the mold of the Rosamond Women – the Roses of the World!

Oprah Winfrey and the Rosamond Family Roots in Kosciusko

Oprah Winfrey and the Rosamond Family Roots in Kosciusko
(Images: Sleeping Beauty. Oprah Winfrey. Grave of James Rosamond in
Kosciusko, recenlty cleared of briar and weeds by my kinfolf who take
lunch)
When this Democracy was born, it was half-born, and not fully awake.
This was because black folks were still slaves, and neither they, nor
women, owned the right to vote.
Today, I discovered Oprah Winfrey has her roots in the same ground
the Rosamond family have theirs, in Kosciusko Mississippi. Is it
possible that the Rosamonds owned Oprah’s ancestors, and they worked
on the Rosamond plantation? Surely Oprah’s kin knew the Rosamonds who
are still living and dying there. I just found another Frances M.
Rosamond carrying on the family tradition of naming their children
after Frances Marion the “Swamp Fox”.

Kosciusko /ˈkɒziˈɨskoʊ/ is a city in Attala County, Mississippi, United States. The population was 7,402 at the 2010 census.[1] It is the county seat of Attala County[2].
Kosciusko is located on the Natchez Trace Parkway, northeast of Jackson. It is named for the Polish-Lithuania Commonwealth general Tadeusz Kościuszko, who assisted United States military efforts during the American Revolution. However, the Anglicized name of the city omits the “z”. Kosciusko was originally named Red Bud Springs for one of three natural springs that were present in the city.
Kosciusko was the home of Magnolia Bible College, and the birthplace for several notable people, including Oprah Winfrey and James Meredith.

Mrs. Mary Lou Rosamond, 81, of Kosciusko passed away Monday, September 10, 2012 in Winona, MS. Services will be held at 11 am Thursday, September 13 at Culpepper Funeral Home Chapel, burial will follow at Community Full Gospel Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 5 – 8 pm on Wednesday. Pallbearers will be Brian Norwood, Michael Rosamond, Dickie Leach, Larry Sanders, Jr., Cooter Tomkins, Eric Rosamond, Tyler Norwood and Justin Self. Honorary Pallbearers will be Mrs. Rosamond’s Grandchildren. Rev. Duran “Buster” Palmertree will officiate the services.
Mrs. Rosamond was a member of Community Full Gospel Church. She was a homemaker and retired from Garan, Inc. and the Hoisery Mill.
She is preceded in death by her parents, John and Sadie Smith.
She is survived by her husband of 62 years, John Rosamond; daughters, Joyce Norwood and Kathy Carver both of Kosciusko; sons, Don (Pat) Rosamond, Weis (Debbie) Rosamond, Bruce Rosamond all of Kosciusko; sister, Johnnie Westerfield of Florence; brother Jack Smith of Florence; 13 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren.

In looking at my Rosamond kinfolk’s names, and the list of books my grandfather, the humorist, authored, I realized I was beholding Al Capp’s Hillbilly people – the Real McCoys. Was Royal aware of the Lil Abner comic strip that was syndicated in newspapers all over America? Then it dawned on me, Rena Christiansen was a real Daisy Mae, and Moonbeam McSwine, driving out from Grand Island Nebraska with her twenty six year old boyfriend to Los Angeles, perhaps to get discovered, or, become a model.

I then went looking for the description of Ravola of Thunder Mountain in Royal’s book dedicated to his second born daughter, Bertha Mae Rosamond

“Yes, she would make a great actress, But we must not think of spoiling her with sham. How sweet she is in just being her, her American Frontier self, let me say. Of the wild flowers I’d call her India Paint brush, and equally as brilliant.

I have described Rena Christian as a Great American Midwest Beauty, the epitome of what America truly is, not a screeching bald eagle, but a beautiful Farm Girl Temptress, that sprout like healthy corn so that Midwest Men may obey God’s first commandment, “Be fruitful and multiply!”

I was fascinated with how Rena grew up, she living with her grandmother apart from her three beautiful sisters who became models. I considered Royal’s four beautiful daughters, and the name Rosamond that can be taken by a man married to a woman named Rose. If Rena had agreed to marry me, she would own the name Irene Rosamond. What was her middle name? The original Daisy Mae had dark chestnut hair.

Rena told me she was tall and knocked kneed, not pretty when she was thirteen, but shwn she turned fourteen, she was – The Death. She suddenly had power over men – of all ages. She noticed married men were taking long peeks at her especially when she went swimming in the Platt River. Rena nurtured this power,and un;eashed it upon me as she came gliding out of that darkened doorway at three A.M. in the morning, she stranded, homeless, and afraid, thus she sought the upper hand. And it hit me like a blast of cosmic fire, she looking down on me like a superior being – that could not be from this world – for I never beheld such a stunning creature. I had to look away, for just a second, just to compose myself, just to find, me. Her beauty was that overpowering.

Four days later, I was exhausted by this Beauty. And thus by a waterfall on Mount Tamalpias, I surrender.

“I give up!”

Safely on hither side, I tell Rena she is my Muse. I now wonder if she was my granfather’s Muse – as well as my sister’s. The Great American Muse?

Exert from Ravola of Thunder Mountain by Royal Reuben Rosamond.

I met her in Eminence this morning. I never beheld another such being. She is like the beautiful notes of an organ with all the stops subdued. You see by this that the very implication of her is wonderful. She’ll stand fully six feet tall in her bare heels and this means that, in high heals, she can pick up a shingle and mend leak in most Ozark cabins. She can look down on most men. Her figure if that of a model, rivaling even the dreams, I vow, of the artists of ancient Greece. Her perfect body needs no no adornment in exquisite , clinging garments. Her features have class; her complexion is pink and healthful, her air of grandeur is almost appalling, cowing most men with her sheer superiority. Her eyes large and luminous, deep chestnut, are thrilling, but not come hither. Those great and beautiful orbs seem seem to be a lover’s moon rising over the horizon of her lower lashes. Yes she is temptation, her generous lips and full mouth the last straw to break a mans resistance, She’s exotic and provocative in the same wondrous breath, made but for the arms of a man, made to love and be loved. Have I describe her?

Oprah backed Obama, and today, he just cruised to victory in the
Mississippi primary I believe this Democracy is having an awakening
like the kingdom of Princess Rosamond a.k.a ‘Sleeping Beauty’.
Both Oprah and my late sister, Christine Rosamond, are victims of
incest. Christina did a painting of four young black girls,
titled ‘Lena and her Sisters’. Lena was our nanny, she our surogate
mother when Rosemary began to work after the divorce. Lena would take
Christine home with her to meet and be with her sisters because
Rosamary was not paying her eldest daugter enough attention. We see
these sisters captured at the Rosamond gallery. This image was one of
four in a family partnership funded with Melba’s legacy she intended
for her grandchildren.
http://www.rosamond.com/
When Stacey Pierrot’s ghost writer asked me contribute to Peirrot’s
biography of Christine, I asked what became of the family prints. In
a e-mail she assured me she had nothing to do with them, and was not
selling them. She lied, because my good freind Mark Gall, and his
sister had taken a photo of the gallery and inside was the lithograph
of the beautiful sisters who brought us calm after the storm. All
four Presco children loved Lena.
When I met my daughter for the first time, she suggested we tell
Oprah the story of our miracle. I sent Oprah an e-mail, but she never
responded.
“Many a long year afterwards there came a King’s son into that
country, and heard an old man tell how there should be a castle
standing behind the hedge of thorns, and that there a beautiful
enchanted Princess named Rosamond had slept for a hundred years, and
with her the King and Queen, and the whole court.”

Sure enough, they both knew where it was. David lead us to it, and he
lead us to the few graves on Mulberry Creek that mark the original
site of the church that was organized in 1826. Talk about luck! This
was so exciting!!! We were so lucky to have ran into these two
gentleman.These graves are right along a paved road in the woods (I
mean, the stones are right along the road). This cemetery is in bad
shape. No one is taking care of it. It is over grown in weeds, trees
and with poison oak and ivy everywhere. David, Mark and I ventured
out into the cemetery a little ways. Couldn’t go to each stone
because the poison oak & ivy is soooo thick.
Then round about that place there grew a hedge of thorns thicker
every year, until at last the whole castle was hidden from view, and
nothing of it could be seen but the vane on the roof. And a rumor
went abroad in all that country of the beautiful sleeping Rosamond,
for so was the Princess called; and from time to time many Kings’
sons came and tried to force their way through the hedge; but it was
impossible for them to do so, for the thorns held fast together like
strong hands, and the young men were caught by them, and not being
able to get free, there died a lamentable death

of the Natchez Trace is Kosciusko, Mississippi, the birthplace of
Oprah Winfrey. In a region characterized by antebellum mansions,
magnolias, riverboat calliope, collard greens, cornbread and stock
car races, Kosciusko celebrates its Indian heritage, culture and its
most famous native daughter. Kosciusko is a recommended top on
Mississippi’s Natchez Trace tour.

Oprah Winfrey Road, which runs past her birth site, the cemetary
where her relative a buried and the church she attended as a child.

Kosciusko is located on the Natchez Trace Parkway, northeast of
Jackson. It is named for the Polish general Tadeusz Koœciuszko, who
assisted United States military efforts during the American Revolution

The emblem worn by the Swan Brethren depicts a a rose, or lily,
amongst thorns. At the root of the rose is the Latin word SICUT which
is the first word from a line from Song of Songs.
2:2. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
Sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica mea inter filias

“Then round about that place there grew a hedge of thorns thicker
every year, until at last the whole castle was hidden from view, and
nothing of it could be seen but the vane on the roof. And a rumor

Rosamond had slept for a hundred years, and with her the King and
Queen, and the whole court. The old man had been told by his
grandfather that many Kings’ sons had sought to pass the thorn-hedge,
but had been caught and pierced by the thorns, and had died a
miserable death. Then said the young man, “Nevertheless, I do not
fear to try; I shall win through and see the lovely Rosamond.” The
good old man tried to dissuade him, but he would not listen to his
words.

“In May of 1999, a group of the Rosamond Cousins researching the
history of the family met in Kosciusko, Attala County, Mississippi.
Those attending this gathering and their direct Rosamond descent are
shown on the List of Attendees. The reunion had as it’s purpose, a
clean up of the Rosamond-Sweeney Cemetery located on the site of one
of the Rosamond Plantations in the mid-1800s. This property is now
owned by the Buford family. As I understand it, the old cemetery was
rediscovered by one of the Bufords who was exploring the wooded
portions of their property

The next day the cousins visited the Rosamond-Sweeney Cemetery. A
large stone (pictured at the left), was that of James Rosamond. This
stone was sitting alone toward what I will define as the back of the
small cemetery. Most of the other stones formed two rows across the
front of the cemetery. None of these stones bore the Rosamond name,
but all the names were known to be related to the Rosamonds in some
manner. The cousins used metal prods to try and find additional
stones that might have been buried during the intervening years, but
only a few foot stones were found. These were all located by Michelle
Smith, the only teenager accompanying the group through all it’s
activities. Many of the stones were put back in place, and propped up
as well as they could be.

I Claim These Castles

Posted on August 4, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

The Seinsheim family is not extant. In theory all the Wilsons that descend from Sir John Robert Wilson and Ada, are the continuance of this lineage. Because I am the first American to claim this property stolen by Adolph Hitler, I claim it in the name of all Czech descendants in the State of Nebraska for services rendered when the United States of American waged war against the mass murderers of the Jewish People. The Czech People of Nebraska paid taxes that were used to pay for the Cold War Stalin waged against the United States, and has been revived by Putin. Let it be known that on this day August 4, 2021, that any aggression by Putin, or any other tyrant, will be considered an attack on the Citizens of Nebraska!

I will author a treaty between the United States, the State of Nebraska, and the Czech Republic that will pledge mutual support when the enemy is at the door. The Knights of White Mountain of both Nations – shall ride forth!

The Wilson-Rosamond Altered Lineage | Rosamond Press

Sir John Robert Wilson II, Earl of Cuper, Burgess of Edinborough (1425–1492) • FamilySearch

(44) The Living Daylights Location Tour, Vienna | James Bond Radio – YouTube

When Sir John Robert Wilson II, Earl of Cuper, Burgess of Edinborough was born in 1425, in Cupar, Fife, Scotland, his father, john Robert Thomas Wilson, was 15 and his mother, Angelina Ellison bull, was 15. He married Lady Ada Antoinette Erasmus in 1445, in Canongate, Edinburgh, Edinburghshire, Scotland, United Kingdom. They were the parents of at least 6 sons. He died in 1492, in Bradfield, Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom, at the age of 67.

Origin[edit]

The family stems from the Lords of Seinsheim, who had established themselves in Franconia during the Middle Ages.[1] A branch of the Seinsheim family (the non-Schwarzenberg portion died out in 1958) was created when Erkinger of Seinsheim acquired the Franconian territory of Schwarzenberg and the castle of Schwarzenberg in Scheinfeld during the early part of the 15th century. He was then granted the title of Freiherr (Baron) of Schwarzenberg in 1429. At that time, the family also possessed some fiefdoms in Bohemia.

Dear Karel; I have claimed the castles that once belonged to your family in the name of the Czech People of Nebraska. This claim nullifies the claim that my Nation has no business in your part of the world. This puts an end to Putin’s claim the Czech Republic is liken to a Russian colony. I am gathering a record from Czech descendants whose fathers went – over there once again – and defeated the evil forces of Adolph Hitler, the man that stole the property belonging to all descendants of Ada Wilson and her husband.

 
Let us form a bond between the Czech Citizens of Nebraska, and your family, and Nation, that will last forever! Sincerely…

Elisabeth von Pezold, née Princess of Schwarzenberg-Frauenberg

Posted on August 19, 2018 by Royal Rosamond Press

Here is my kin.

John

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/czechrepublic/8684376/Czech-foreign-minister-and-sister-in-feud-over-family-castles-and-palaces.html

Elisabeth von Pezold wants the return of property expropriated by the Czechoslovak state in 1947.

However, her adopted brother, Karel Schwarzenberg, the Czech Republic’s foreign minister, apparently does not.

The homes include the Cesky Krumlov castle, a jewel in the crown of Czech tourism which towers over an ancient town in southern Bohemia.

But Mrs von Pezold claims that her brother, one of the republic’s most popular politicians, has blocked her case.

She argues that the Prince of Schwarzenberg, to use his formal title, has failed to fulfil the wishes of their father, whose will asked that his successor should fight to get the property back.

Law360, New York (February 11, 2016, 6:59 PM EST) — A Swiss-German family whose farms and forest holdings were seized by Zimbabweans during the government’s “land reform” of the 2000s is owed at least $130 million and perhaps more than $310 million by the country’s government, according to a decision from the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes made public this week.

In a ruling marked by sweeping assessments of history, politics, power and what could have been for the struggling African country, an ICSID panel said the government of Robert Mugabe bears responsibility…

Elisabeth von Pezold, née Princess of Schwarzenberg-Frauenberg

Princess Elisabeth of Schwarzenberg was born on 1 October 1947 in Vienna as the only daughter of Prince Heinrich Schwarzenberg, Duke of Krumlov, and his wife Eleonore Schwarzenberg, Countess of Stolberg-Stolberg. Because of his exemplary anti-Fascist and pro-Czechoslovak stance during the war he was imprisoned by the Gestapo i.a. in KZ Buchenwald and became a forced labourer until the end of the war. Since 1945 her father was groundlessly barred from returning to Czechoslovakia, and so Elisabeth grew up with her parents in Gusterheim near Pöls in Styria, where she attended the local elementary school. Later, she moved with her parents to the Schwarzenberg Palais in Vienna so that she could attend the Sacre Coeur Catholic Grammar School

In Vienna, Elisabeth lived not only with her parents, but also with her aunt, Princess Eleonore Schwarzenberg and her uncle, Prince Joseph Schwarzenberg, the last head of the family.

After 1945, Elisabeth’s father managed to win the restitution of the property of Prince Adolph Schwarzenberg in Germany and Austria confiscated by the Gestapo in 1940. He then managed this property for his cousin and adoptive father as its general trustee. For his part, Heinrich owned Gusterheim Castle, which he had inherited from his father Felix in 1946. Adolph died in 1950, making Heinrich his universal heir. With much effort, he managed to rebuild the family’s Vienna palais, which had been partially destroyed by wartime bombing, while his wife devoted herself to looking after the expansive park.

Elisabeth’s father Heinrich died in 1965, the same year she successfully completed grammar school and began studying art history and archeology at the university in Freiburg im Breisgau, where her father had applied for her to stay at the Catholic hall of residence. Elisabeth later continued her studies in Bonn and in Munich.

On 31 May 1970, Elisabeth married Rüdiger von Pezold in Gusterheim. The couple then moved to Munich, where he worked as an attorney. In 1971 their daughter Anna was born, followed over the next twelve years by one more daughter, Juliane, and five sons – Heinrich, Georg Philipp, Felix, Johann, and Adam.

Following the completion of renovations at Gusterheim Castle, the family moved in, devoting itself to managing the agricultural and forestry holding inherited from Elisabeth’s father. The Pezolds restructured their farm and forestry activities with an emphasis on natural forestry and a reduction in the number of ungulate game. Over the years, Elisabeth reforested 500 hectares of primarily high-mountain land in order to protect the landscape from avalanches. Here she invested some four million Euros, also to clean up streams and rivers. Elisabeth von Pezold also established fish ladders and restored dried-up stream beds so that they could be suitable for fish again.

The 1980s were marked by the battle against emissions from two state-owned industrial companies that threatened local forests and human health. After many years of court hearings and official negotiations, Elisabeth and her husband and neighbours succeeded in effecting the closure of the nearby ÖDK Zeltweg thermal power station and the establishment of a new cellulose factory in Pöls reflecting technical and safety standards.

From 1975 to 1995, Rüdiger von Pezold was chairman and director general of the ducal foundations in Coburg. Besides the management of the ample forests his main task was to look after the foundation’s collection of furniture, art, and coins, as well as the renovation of the castle and family mausoleum in Coburg and Castle Greinburg in Upper Austria with the aim of opening them to the public. In these efforts, Elisabeth’s extensive knowledge of art was of great help, as she put to use both her knowledge of art as well as her experiences from renovating her patronage church of St. James in Frauenburg, Styria, which she led personally.

In 1979, Elisabeth provided her house in Unzmarkt to the disposition of Professor Franz Schwarzenberg-Orlik and his wife Amelie when they came to Austria from the United States after his retirement. Later Elisabeth was adopted by Amelie Schwarzenberg-Orlik.

An important chapter in Elisabeth’s life began in 1988, when she and her husband acquired Forrester Estate in Zimbabwe. In addition to managing the business, they built new dams for 28 million cubic meters of water, and an irrigation system to go with it. On their African farm, the couple also expanded medical care and provided education for the local inhabitants. In the 1990s, the Pezolds established a polytechnic college, with all the equipment generously provided by the Federal Republic of Germany. Because of political developments in Zimbabwe, however, the college was never opened – as part of the country’s so called land reform, the state took over the location and the school was demolished.

In 1998, the couple handed over the management of their African holdings to their 27-year-old son Heinrich, in order to transfer responsibility for managing their expansive agricultural and forestry holdings. As a result, the couple gained more time for the exceptionally complex and time-demanding work associated with the unexpected duty to push for the restitution of Adolph Schwarzenberg’s property confiscated in Czechoslovakia. After her adoptive brother Karel Schwarzenberg had failed to comply with his promise to meet his obligations contained in the will of her father regarding the restitution of this property, Elisabeth has become the only person engaged in the restitution process. The restitution concerns her grandfather Adolph Schwarzenberg’s property confiscated by the Gestapo in 1940 and since 1945 held by the Czechoslovak, and later the Czech state, in violation of the law and the constitution. In order to properly devote herself to the issue, Elisabeth acquired Czech citizenship and moved to Prague in 1993.

In December 1994, Elisabeth’s mother passed away in Gusterheim, surrounded by family. With Amelie Schwarzenberg, however, the Pezolds’ children continue to have a loving and loved Czech grandmother.

In 2003, Elisabeth acquired a house in Prague’s Smichov district, which she renovated with the help of her son Georg Philipp. Since then, she has lived there with her husband. Currently, her son Adam is living with his parents in Prague and working there for a company which refurbishes historic listed houses.

Following years of court hearings, in 2007 the High Court in Vienna ruled that Karel Schwarzenberg forfeited his inheritance from Heinrich Schwarzenberg in favour of Heinrich’s daughter Elisabeth if he failed culpably to fulfil the duty assigned to him by the will of his adoptive father Heinrich Schwarzenberg to actively work towards the return of the confiscated Czech property of Adolph Schwarzenberg. The Austrian High Court’s ruling returned the case to the court of first instance for, among other things, clarification of this issue.

In 2009, Elisabeth von Pezold was able to celebrate another legal victory when the Czech Constitutional Court warranted that the family’s tomb in Domanin near Trebon and other property that had not been confiscated had to be returned.

Elisabeth is the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren, who visit her in Prague and whom she visits at their homes in Zimbabwe, England, and Austria.
