Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein (alternate spellings: Wenceslao, Wenceslas, Wenceslaus)[1] of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein was born on May 12, 1974 in Uccle, Belgium. He is the son of HSH Prince Philip Erasmus of Liechtenstein and Isabelle de l'Arbre de Malander.[2] He was born to the style of a Serene Highness and Prince of Liechtenstein, and is additionally a Count of Rietberg.[3] Prince Wenzeslaus has two brothers:

  • Prince Alexander (born 1972, married Astrid Barbara Kohl in 2003).
  • Prince Rudolf Ferdinand (born 1975, married Tilsim Tanberk in 2012).[4]

Prince Wenzeslaus has become something of a society column figure on account of his relationship with Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima.[5] The society columns such as Page Six of the New York Post have tagged him with the nickname of Prince Wence (pronounced: Vince). There has been some confusion over what he prefers to be called, the most popular choice being Vincent, which led to the nickname "Vince the Prince".

His father is President of the LGT Group in Liechtenstein which is privately owned by the Prince of Liechtenstein Foundation. Prince Wenzeslaus is the nephew of the reigning sovereign Fürst Hans Adam II and the first cousin of Alois, Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein, who is Regent since 2004.
