Alexander von Hochberg or Aleksander Pszczyński (1 February 1905 – 22 February 1984) — a German-Polish aristocrat, businessman and British Secret Intelligence Service officer. In 1984, he briefly served as the head of the Hochberg von Pless princely family.
He was born 1 February 1905 in London, to Hans Heinrich XV, 3rd Prince von Pleß and his first wife Daisy, Princess of Pless. As an heir of once mighty Silesian ducal family of Dukes von Pless, Alexander (officially styled Alexander Friedrich Wilhelm Georg Konrad Ernst Maximilian Graf von Hochberg, baron zu Fürstenstein, 5th Fürst von Pless) had been a Polish citizen. In the wake of World War II he emigrated to Paris, where he joined the Polish Army in the West. He became the 5th Fürst von Pless in 1984. Using the name or title Pless (Pszczynski) before 1984 was against the family rules. He served with distinction in North Africa and in Italy
