From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The title Duke of Urach (German: Herzog von Urach) was created in the Kingdom of W├╝rttemberg for Friedrich Wilhelm Alexander Ferdinand, Count of W├╝rttemberg on 28 March 1867, with the style of HSH.



Wilhelm was the son of Duke Wilhelm of W├╝rttemberg (1761-1830) and his morganatic wife, Baroness (Freiin) Wilhelmine von Tunderfeldt-Rhodis (1777-1822), whom he married at Coswig on 23 August 1800. His paternal grandfather was Friedrich II Eugen (1732-1797), from whom all claimants to the Kingdom of W├╝rttemberg are descended. Because of his first marriage to Th├ęodolinde de Beauharnais, the first Duke had converted to Roman Catholicism.

The 2nd Duke of Urach was briefly chosen as Mindaugas II, King of Lithuania in 1918. The family owns Lichtenstein Castle, rebuilt by the first duke in the 1840s.
