Yes, indeed. Esterhazy Schmidt was what they named their daughter born in the mid-Fifties. I could also give a hint as to where the famous diamond tiara, given by the elder Franziska (Franziska Romana) to Maria Orsic got up to, but "ueber die Schmuck, Les es ist schtreiden", right?
That the title of the princes auf Altenstadt now exists is beyond question. Although this title exists from the twelve year Reich, titles and indeed monarchies continue forever, once created, though the monarchies in question may be as short-lived as the kings of Romania or Albania, the "Kingdom" of Haiti, or indeed the Central African Empire.
The original authority for their title may have been a Vril Maiden in the 3rd Reich but she was also a princess who had declared her own sovreignty at a time when she could actually have expected to be given a country to rule upon a nazi victory. In this light, one may consider that she could indeed raise her spouse from the rank of baron to that of prince.
There was a change made in their coat-of-arms to reflect their freedom from Hitler's Germanism, immediately following tha nazi defeat, which incorporated the slavic coats-of-arms of the Esterhazys and Lobkowitzes. The younger Franziska changed the name of their House to Hohenlohe-Rechberg-Lobkowitz-Esterhazy-Oettingen- auf Altenstadt with "auf Altenstadt" being their usual form of address. This will, of course, be nowhere reflected in any pre-1945 pamphlets printed by the Vril Society.
The Princess represented her mother, Gabriela Rechberg, with a centre-shield upon which she placed impaled the arms of Rechberg with those of Hohenlohe, in the Wife's position, thus showing the union of Gabriela's parents.
The shield was quarterly: 1st auf Altenstadt, her husband considered to be raised already to princely status by her previous act, and 4th Oettingen to represent herself. 2nd was Esterhazy and 3rd was Lobkowitz. And again there was mention of that very unusual female remainder.
