On Sunday, 14 March, Max Emanuel Prinz von Thurn und Taxis died of Covid-19. Max Emanuel, the founder of Max Emanuel von Thurn und Taxis Sparkling Wine, was fifty-five years-old. 

Born on 8 June 1965 at Vienna, Max-Emanuel Karl Lamoral Prinz von Thurn und Taxis was the eldest of the three sons of Lamoral Prinz von Thurn und Taxis (b.1937) and Dorothea Hornberg (1942-1999), who married in 1961 and divorced in 1978. Max Emanuel had two younger brothers, Stefan (1967-2005) and Andreas (b.1970). In 1986, Max Emanuel von Thurn und Taxis married Carine Lackner (b.1962); the couple divorced that same year.

Max Emanuel, a member of a non-dynastic branch of the Thurn und Taxis dynasty, was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus last week. According to friends of the “Prosecco Prince,” he was experiencing only mild symptoms, such as shortness of breath, before his condition rapidly deteriorated over the weekend.

May Max Emanuel Rest In Peace.
