Several Royal Passports of Prince Alfons of Bavaria
Not often a collector has the chance to get several passports of a price, in this case Prince Alfons of Bavaria. However, I unfortunately missed the lot as the price went much higher than I was expecting.
The auction lot was a large portfolio with extensive documents on the prince and his wife’s journeys abroad between 1887 and 1917, including related applications, a passport for his court marshal Ferdinand von Reitzenstein, his son Prince Joseph Clemens, two weapons passes for hunting rifles and a passport for journeys within Germany, mostly issued to his incognito Count Alfons von Badenburg, often with entourage and servants, so z.B. 1887 to San Remo, 1888 to Belgium and the Netherlands, 1893 to France and Belgium, 1896 to Vienna and Paris, 1899 to Brussels, 1902 to Switzerland, 1905 to France and Spain, 1907 and 1909 to England, 1917 to Switzerland. Over 50 documents, partly very nice calligraphy, numerous interesting signatures and stamps. In addition a large photo of the prince and his wife with prince Joseph Clemens.
Prince Alfons of Bavaria (German: Alfons Maria Franz von Assisi Klemens Max Emanuel Prinz von Bayern; 24 January 1862 – 8 January 1933) was a member of the Bavarian Royal House of Wittelsbach and a General of Cavalry.
