The former German princely House of Thurn and Taxis exists through several extant lines descending from Alexander Ferdinand, 3rd Prince of Thurn and Taxis. The law of succession is agnatic primogeniture, only allowing males to succeed to the princely (German: Fürst) title. The current nominal successor Head of the House of Thurn and Taxis is Albert, 12th Prince of Thurn and Taxis, and as such assumes the aristonym Fürst von Thurn und Taxis (Prince of Thurn and Taxis) as a traditional title.[1]
