Scheel von Plessen

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Scheel von Plessen , also von Scheel-Plessen, is the name of the Danish- Holstein line (with the title of count in the primogeniture ; those born below bear the name of Plessen ) of the originally noble noble family von Plessen .


The name was created as a result of the marriage of the royal Danish Privy Councilor Christian Ludwig von Plessen on January 8, 1702 with Charlotte Amalie Skeel (from the Danish noble family Scheel / Skeel ) by adopting the name "Scheel von Plessen".

With the nationalization of German property in Denmark after the Second World War and the resulting loss of the Fussingø property , the right to use the Danish title Lehnsgraf and the name Scheel in Scheel-Plessen was lost, which the Holstein branches continue to use due to the Prussian count.
