v · Schloss Salem, Salem, Baden-Württemberg, Germany), is the son of Berthold, Margrave of Baden and Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark. Through his mother, he is the nephew of The Duke of Edinburgh and is first cousin to The Prince of Wales, The Princess Royal, The Duke of York, and The Earl of Wessex.[1][2] He is the head of the Grand-Ducal House of Baden and the representative of the descent of the Kings of Sweden of the House of Holstein-Gottorp[citation needed].


Marriage and children

He married Archduchess Valerie of Austria, daughter of Archduke Hubert Salvator of Austria and Princess Rosemary of Salm-Salm, on 23 September 1966 in Salem, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, in a civil marriage. They were married in a religious ceremony on 30 September 1966 in Schloss Persenbeug, Austria.[3][4]

Because he married a Catholic, Maximilian is not in the line of succession to the British Throne.
