Maximilian, Margrave of Baden (Maximilian Andreas Friedrich Gustav Ernst August Bernhard, born 3 July 1933 at Salem Castle, Salem, Germany), is the elder son of Berthold, Margrave of Baden and Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark. Through his mother, he is the nephew of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and is first cousin to Charles, Prince of Wales. He is the head of the Grand-Ducal House of Baden and the representative of the descent of the Kings of Sweden of the House of Holstein-Gottorp.

  • Prince Leopold Max Christian Ludwig Clemens Hubert of Baden (1 October 1971).
  • Prince Michael Max Andreas of Baden (11 March 1976), married in Salem on 4 July 2015 to Christina Höhne.
  • Because he married a Roman Catholic, according to the Act of Settlement of 1701, Maximilian would be removed from the line of succession to the British throne, until implementation in 2015 of the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, which restored any succession rights to British dynasts forfeited because of marriage to Roman Catholics.
