"Even with so many people around some days I feel lonely"

Prince Alfonso Hohenlohe started with a $10,000 loan from his father and a family tree that went back to the Crusades. Now he owns a ranch in Mexico, a house in Liechtenstein, and the exclusive Marbella club-a million pound property on the Costa del Sol, the latest playground of the very rich.

A typical day of his might include waterski-ing with Baron Thyssen in the morning, golf with Baron Rothschild in the afternoon, and escorting Gina Lollobrigida to at least two parties in the evening. It's a life that many people might envy, yet over it all hangs a cloud - the bitterness that followed the break-up of his fairy-tale marriage to fifteen-year-old Princess Ira Furstenberg.
