Victoria Elisabeth von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, 20th Duchess of Medinaceli, GE (born 17 March 1997) is a Spanish-German noblewoman.[1] Holding 43 officially recognised titles in the Spanish nobility, she is the most titled aristocrat in the world, as well as 10 times a Grandee.[2]

She is the elder child of Prince Marco of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, 19th Duke of Medinaceli. Her younger brother, Alexander Gonzalo, is the 14th Duke of Ciudad Real, 13th Marquess of Navahermosa, and a dynast of the Princely House of Hohenlohe-Langenburg.

Biography[edit]

She was born in Málaga on 17 March 1997 as the first child of Sandra Schmidt-Polex, a German, and Prince Marco of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, a German-Spanish aristocrat.[3][4] Victoria is trilingual and was raised in Munich, Germany, prior to moving to Madrid to study international relations at IE University.[3]

Her paternal grandmother was Ana Luisa de Medina, Marchioness of Navahermosa, Countess of Ofalia, who died in 2012. Victoria inherited her grandmother's countship in 2016, while her brother inherited the other title.[5]

Upon the death of her father in 2016 (head of the Medinaceli family since 2014), she became the heir to about 40 titles of nobility related to the House of Medinaceli.[5] From 2017, she has been confirmed by the Spanish Ministry of Justice as the holder of five dukedoms, 16 marquessates, 17 countships (with one adelantazgo) and 4 viscountcies. With 43 titles, she is the most titled aristocrat in Spain.[6]

She holds ten grandeeships.
