Unlike his family, Prince Foffi, as he was called, has been looking for publicity for years. Now he has died of heart failure.
Sigmaringen/Munich – 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. He was 79 years old.
“Bild” and “Bunte” had previously been reported with reference to the closest family circle. Hohenzollern Castle in the Zollernalb district is the ancestral seat of the Prussian royal family and the princes of Hohenzollern.
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 the 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.
