ROYALS ATTEND THE FUNERAL OF MORITZ, LANDGRAVE OF HESSE

Various royals attended the funeral of Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse (1926-2013), who was a descendant of Queen Victoria.  He was the son of Prince Philipp, Landgrave of Hesse, and Princess Mafalda of Savoy, daughter of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy.  Princess Mafalda died at the Buchenwald concentration camp.  The late Moritz, Landgrave of Hesse was therefore related to numerous royal families of Europe.  Among those in attendance at his funeral were Queen Sofia of Spain, her brother, ex-King Constantine II of Greece; Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, Princess Sarvath of Jordan, and the former Tsar Simeon of Bulgaria.  Photos by Getty Images.
