Prince of Liechtenstein Dies at 51 Years Old

SUDDEN DEATH - His Highness Has Fallen


Prince Constantin of Liechtenstein, a nation situated amidst Austria and Switzerland, has passed away at the age of 51. The details surrounding his demise have not been revealed at this time. On December 5, the Royal Household released a statement announcing the unexpected demise of Prince Constantin. No further details regarding the incident are currently available.

According to Royal Central, Prince Constantin, the youngest son of Prince Hans Adam II and the late Princess Marie of Liechtenstein, had two elder brothers, neither of whom is the direct successor to the throne, and a younger sister. He held the seventh position in line for the throne.

Born on March 15, 1972, in St. Gallen, Switzerland, Prince Constantin is the son of Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein and Countess Marie Aglae of Wchinitz and Tettau. He pursued a legal education at the University of Salzburg and later ventured into a career with investment firms in both the United States and Europe.

Furthermore, he held the positions of board chairman and general director at the Prince of Liechtenstein Foundation. This foundation encompasses the Liechtenstein Group, an outreach entity responsible for managing the assets of the royal family, with investments spanning agriculture, forestry, renewable energy, and real estate. 

Additionally, the family possesses one of the most extensive art collections globally.

In 1999, Prince Constantin entered matrimony with Countess Marie Gabriele Franziska Kalnoky de Korospatak. Over the period from 2003 to 2008, the couple welcomed two sons and a daughter into their family.

Liechtenstein, a German-speaking country, has a population of under 40,000 people. Covering a mere 62 miles, it is approximately the size of Washington, DC. The royal family assumed leadership in 1608, and the country operates under a constitutional monarchy. The rulers reside in Vaduz Castle, which offers a vantage point overlooking the modest town of Vaduz.

On December 6, the state parliament of Liechtenstein observed a moment of silence as a tribute to the late prince.
