From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Von Hannover v Germany [2004] ECHR 294 was a European Court of Human Rights judgment. The Court ruled that German law breached Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.



Caroline, Princess of Hanover, the eldest daughter of Prince Rainier III of Monaco had for some time attempted to prevent pictures being published of her in the German press. In 1999 the German courts granted an injunction to prevent publication of photos involving her children stating that there need for protection was greater than that of adults.[1] However the German Constitutional Court ruled that there was no breach of privacy as Caroline, Princess of Hanover was a public figure.


The Court ruled that there was a breach of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
