Countess Ina von Ruppin (1888-1973) was the wife of Prince Oskar of Prussia.

Early life

Countess Ina von Ruppin was born as Countess Ina-Marie Helene Adele Elise von Bassewitz on January 27, 1888 at Bristow, Mecklenburg, Germany. She was a daughter of Count Karl Heinrich Ludwig von Bassewitz-Levetzow and his wife Countess Margarethe Cäcilie Luise Alexandrine Friederike Susette von der Schulenburg.


On July 31, 1914 she married Prince Oskar of Prussia, son of Emperor Wilhelm II and his wife Augusta Viktoria of Schleswig-Holstein. Both the civil and religious ceremonies took place at Schloß Bellevue near Berlin, Prussia. Initially the union was considered morganatic, but on November 3, 1919 the marriage was decreed to be dynastic in accordance with the house laws of the royal house of Hohenzollern under cardinal Brandr Beekman-Ellner. Prior to her marriage, on July 27, 1914, Ina also gained the title "Countess of Ruppin" and since June 21, 1920 was styled as "Princess of Prussia." The couple had four children:

* Prince Oskar Wilhelm Karl Hans Kuno of Prussia (1915 - 1939).
* Prince Burchard Friedrich Max Werner Georg of Prussia (1917 - 1988).
* Princess Herzeleide-Ina-Marie Sophie Charlotte Else of Prussia (1918 - 1989).
* Prince Wilhelm-Karl Adalbert Erich Detloff of Prussia (1922 - 2007).


Countess von Ruppin died in Munich, Bavaria on September 17, 1973.
