Elfi von Dassanowsky died yesterday, October 2, 2007, at the age of 83. She was born on February 2, 1924 as Elfirede Maria Elisabeth Charlotte von Dassanowsky, as a member of the Austrian branch of the Polish Counts Taczanowski.

The Taczanowski family hail originally from the area of Poznan and they bear the Jastrzebiec Coat of Arms. The family originated during the 15th century and they took their name from their estate, Taczanow. In 1857, His Majesty King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia granted them the title of count.

The Dassanowskys originated among the descendants of one Andrzej Taczanowski, who was a Knight Commander in the forces of King Jan Sobieski of Poland during the Siege of Vienna in 1683. They settled in Austria, and became members of the Austrian nobility, though they were already nobles due to their status as magnates in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and that kind of post required szlachta, or noble, status. Ms. Elfi is survived by her 47-year-old son, Robert von Dassanowsky.

The only extant member of the Taczanowski family that I know of is Hubert Taczanowski, son of Stanislaw Taczanowski and his wife, Maria Taczanowski (nee Grabska). In Jan. 2007, Hubert Taczanowski married British costume designer Stephanie Collie, who now becomes Mrs. Stephanie Taczanowska, and has the status of a member of the Polish nobility by marriage.

Irmgard von Stephani, Germany's oldest person, died on October 5th, 2007, aged 112 years, 15 days. She was succeeded as Germany's oldest person by Elsa Tauser, who died the following day. There are currently no German-born people who are still living in Germany today who were born before October 1st, 1897.


Btw, I'm just guessing that Ms. von Stephani is a noble. She does have the 'von' particle in her name, after all.


Edited to correct single dumbest dating error in all of history.

A week's worth of Euro-ites instead of Germans?

Oops. The year there should be 1897. Sorry.

Sheikh Salem al-Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah, Prince of Kuwait, died yesterday. He was born in 1938, and, as of his passing, was the senior member of the Princely House of Al-Sabah. His Highness the Emir of Kuwait is doubtless grieving.

Thank you,
I am glad you took the time to share that information with us.  I want to stay closer to the Emirate than time allows me.

Again I thank you.

Most Noble and Puissant Prince Dudley Danvers Granville Coutts Ryder, 7th Earl of Harrowby, died on October 9, 2007. He was born on December 20, 1922. His first wife, Most Noble and Puissant Princess Jeanette Rosalthe Ryder (nee Johnston-Saint), Countess of Harrowby, died in about 2003, after having bore him two children. In 2003, he remarried to Jolene Mary Coates, who became Her Ladyship the Countess of Harrowby by marriage. I have no clue what she would be called now.

The late Earl's eldest son, the former Viscount Crandon, is now styled Most Noble and Puissant Prince Dudley Adrian Conroy Ryder, 8th Earl of Harrowby. The new Earl's wife, the former Viscountess Crandon, is now styled Most Noble and Puissant Princess Caroline, Countess of Harrowby. The new Earl's eldest son, formerly The Honourable Hugo Ryder, is now to be called Hugo Ryder, Viscount Sandon. The new Earl's other children, Frederick, Henry, and Emily Ryder, all formerly styled The Honourable, now become Lord Frederick Ryder, Lord Henry Ryder, and Lady Emily Ryder.

The late Earl also had three other grandchildren, The Honourable Henry Coram-James, The Honourable Edward Coram-James, and The Honourable Clementine Coram-James. I have no clue whether they will change their styles or not, or, for that matter, wherte the devil the late Earl got them from, as he doesn't seem to have had any more than two children.

The late Earl's other child, Lady Rosalthe Rundall, is still living, and has three children, The Honourable Thomas Rundall, The Honourable Mark Rundall, and the Honourable Jack Rundall. I have no clue whether their styles are changed due to this sad death.

Andree de Jongh, Belgian Countess, died yesterday. She was born on November 30, 1916 when her nation was under German occupation during the First World War. She became a hero of the Belgian Resistance during the early 1940s, helping hundreds of Allied soldiers escape to Gibraltar along the Comet Line. She was liberated by American troops from Ravensbruck concentration camp in April 1945, where she had ended up after being captured by the Gestapo in January of '44. May God commend her soul to Heaven.

It is more appropriate and more correct for Monarchists as is customary also for people to use the expression "passed on' or "passed away" for people who do not anymore live visibly and can not be seen and talked to through their "material" habitation their body.Intelligent people understand that individual life and individual Consciousness can not really die.One can develope the 6th sense or 3rd eye, thereby he or she can be able to communicate with those that have passed away and get to know that the dead are not dead but alive in spirit and they have just passed away or on really.I have a Book paperback,'Prince Charles and the Paranormal' in which is mentioned that members of the Royal Family have communicated with the departed through Mediums.King George II of Greece when he was in London he communicated with a  passed on personality[I do not remember if it was a Royal one or not]and he or she told him that he was going to returned to Greece and be King again.As it happened when the World War I was over.

Cornelius, I too prefer 'passed' but the Countess is dead.  Attempts to communicate with the dead (other than perhaps as intercessors in prayer) is rather strongly condemned in the Scripture.

I don't know what rank she may hold in the resurrection, but on this plane she is no longer the Countess (Dowager).

Don't whine about wording.

KYM, Thanks for keeping us informed of the passing of the Nobles.
