errr.... she's not the first Peruvian to marry a European Prince...
So that nickname she got for being the Princess of the Andes is false.
A Spaniard Prince (from the de Bourbon house) married a Peruvian woman in the 30's or 40's.

This fits here, due to the following comment from the linked article:

"The Hiltons hit the Euro-Jackpot for marriages again! Tessa [Gräfin von Walderdorff's] ancestors include Marie Antoinette, the former king of Bayern and Franz, Duke of Bavaria, head of the House of Wittelsbach, the former ruling family of the Kingdom of Bavaria. Conrad will receive a title when they marry, a Count or a Duke."

Going by "gräfin" it's "countess"; so "count" of "earl" for Barron Hilton, though titles are not recognized and even the curtesy ones go by old rules - husband's don't gain titles through their wives. But then some like to change the rules to non-existing things... sigh

Paris looks quite lovely actually. Tessa, the bride, is in the middle, and on the right we have Kathy Hilton

Indeed. So young. The house is with him now dead (extinct) as well, as he was the last heir.

Apparently not. Someone on rd said this is it for this house.. Descendants of the house for sure must be living still, apart from late Georg, but none "eligible for the throne" so to speak.
