Constantine Josef of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (28 September 1802 Kleinheubach, near Miltenberg – 27 December 1838, Kleinheubach) was the eldest son and heir of Charles Thomas, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg and his wife Sophie of Windisch-Graetz. He predeceased his father, however.

Family[edit]

His paternal grandparents were Dominic Constantine, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1762–1814) and his first wife Marie Leopoldine of Hohenlohe-Bartenstein.

His maternal grandparents were Joseph Nicholas, Count of Windisch-Graetz and his second wife Leopoldine of Arenberg.

Dominic Constantine was the eldest son of Theodore Alexander, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1722–1780) and his wife Catharine Louise Eleonore, Countess of Leiningen-Dagsburg-Hartenburg.

Theodore Alexander was a son of Dominic Marquard, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1690–1735) and his wife Christina of Hesse-Wanfried. Christina was a daughter of Charles, Landgrave of Hesse-Wanfried. Charles was the second son of Ernest, Landgrave of Hesse-Rheinfels.

Dominic Marquard was a son of Maximilian Karl Albert, Prince of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1656–1718) and his wife Polyxena Maria, Countess Khuen von Lichtenberg und Belasi. His father had served as governor of Milan, representing Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor until his own death.

Maximilian was a son of Ferdinand Karl, Count of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1616–1672) and his wife Anna Maria, Countess of Fürstenberg.

Ferdinand Karl was a son of Johann Dietrich, Count of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (1585–1644) and his first wife Josina of the Marck.

Johann Dietrich was a younger son of Louis III, Count of Löwenstein-Wertheim (1530–1611) and his wife Anna, Countess of Stolberg. His father had served as governor of Styria, Carinthia and Carniola, representing rulers of the House of Habsburg.
