in the 1900s, Wernitz claims to have aristcratic grandmothers.

a certain princess Alexandra Lvovna Galitzina, from Moscow, is claimed to be the mother of a Stefan Karl Wernitz (birth in Köszeg = Güns, Eisenberg, Hungary's Burgenland).

a certain morganatically born baroness Yvonne Rennenberg, frm Rhineland, is claimed to be the mother of a Margaretha Gabriella Viktoria Udvar (birth 1909 in pecs (German: Fünfkirchen), s.Hungary).

Has there been reliable research abut these births, parentages and claimed marriages?

an essay exists:

Stair Sainty, Guy (2002)
"Andreas Wernitz, the real story of his imposture as duke, prince, marquis, count, baron and grandee of Spain".
Essay, chivalricorders

I understood from a mutual acquaintance that Mr. Sainty scrubbed the excellent essay from the web due to threats of legal action by the fraudster von Wernitz. In the fascinating essay of which I fortunately made a copy, Sainty exposed Wernitz as a Hungarian-born con-man András Petróczy. Wernitz did marry a genuine Hungarian countess, but his own claim to aristocratic forbears is entirely fabricated.
