Ferfried Prince of Hohenzollern, also known as Prince Foffi, died of heart failure in Munich. This was announced by the House of Hohenzollern on Friday in Sigmaringen. September 26 was given as the date of death.
The House of Hohenzollern consists of a royal Prussian line and a princely Swabian line. Two-thirds of Hohenzollern Castle belonged to Georg Friedrich Prince of Prussia. He is great-great-grandson of the last King of Prussia and German Emperor Wilhelm II (1859-1941). A third is owned by Karl Friedrich Prince of Hohenzollern. He controls the family property of the Swabian Hohenzollern from Sigmaringen.
While the family is otherwise reserved in Swabian style, Prince Foffi sought media publicity for years. The highlight was his liaison with Tatjana Gsell a few years ago. They called themselves "Grunzelchen" and "Schnitzelmeierin" and even wanted to invite the English Queen to the wedding. In the end, however, nothing came of the fourth marriage.
