The German Prince Ernst August von Hannover, the head of one of Europe’s oldest royal families, has appealed a verdict from an Austrian court.
The prince was sentenced to ten months in prison on Tuesday and is no longer allowed to live in the family’s Austrian country house in Almtal.
The court in Austrian Welsh found him guilty of assaulting officers and caretakers while intoxicated. The judge also imposed a ban on alcohol and psychotherapy. Von Hannover is also appealing against this.
The 67-year-old Ernst August von Hannover, a great-grandson of the last German Emperor Wilhelm II, was taken from his mansion last summer after a scuffle with agents and taken to a psychiatrist “for his own safety”. He is known for his aggressive outbursts, insults and a family feud over a colossal castle near Hanover. He has previously been convicted of assault.
