That was very interesting, he was a man with great taste. What I noticed and think is interesting in picture 6 he wears the Bavarian Hubertus star in precedence bevore the Prussian Black Eagle star, although Lippe was more or less surrounded by Prussia.

EDIT: Inspecting it again I saw it is a RED EAGLE star - so the precedence makes sence

Hi Roman,

very nice.

With regard to Lippe I only have this photo of the other principality, Schaumburg-Lippe.

It´s a private photo that shows Prinz Christian of Schaumburg-Lippe on his tricycle in the year of 1911, 5 years old.
