About Hans-Adam II Prince of Liechtenstein

1305th Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece: Austrian Branch

  1. Alois von Liechtenstein

  4. Tatjana von Liechtenstein


The Prince of Liechtenstein has broad powers; a referendum to adopt Hans-Adam's revision of the constitution to expand his powers passed in 2003. The changes also included a republican option, whereby the Prince was henceforth formally barred from vetoing any bill to establish a republic. In addition, the right of each of the parishes which make up the Principality to secede was recognised. Prince Hans-Adam had announced his intention for him and his family to move to Austria if the referendum failed. Despite opposition from Mario Frick, a former prime minister, the Prince's referendum motion was carried by the electorate.

On 15 Aug. 2004 Prince Hans-Adam II formally turned the power of making day-to-day governmental decisions over to his eldest son, Prince Alois, as a way of beginning a dynastic transition to a new generation. Legally, Hans- Adam remains Head of State.

Personal life

On 30 July 1967, at Vaduz, Liechtenstein, he married his second cousin once-removed, Countess Maarie Aglaë Kinsky von Wchinitz und Tattau (born 1940) who, upon her husband's accession to the throne, became Her Serene Highness the Princess of Liechtenstein. Their official residence is at Vaduz Castle, which overlooks the capital. (car) --------------------------------------------------------------------
