received with open arms at tho court
of the Kaiser, to whom he Is pretty

Marie Bonaparte, who has since mar-|
Hid Prlhce George of Greece, and
Whose wealth Is derived from hor
father's part ownership of the public
gambling tables <'f Monte Carlo. But
although Prince Hermann was much
nearer <? throne than George of Greece,
owing to the fact that rtla father, .
Prince Wiliam of Saxe-Weimar. Is vir?
tually excluded from the succession,
and that the grandduke has no son
by -ither of his marriages, yet his ref?

tually next In the line of succeslon to
the grandducal crown. It was considered
necessary under the peculiar circum?

him therefrom, arid he was according?
ly reduced In 1909 from the status of
a" prince of a sovereign house, to thatj
of a mere noble, receiving trom his

Count Osthelm. and a small annuity
