Much later, Gsell gave insights into this time: “We were together for two years. And I’ll be honest: the first year it was a relationship, yes, a love affair. But we were too different. Last year we only worked for the media,” RTL said.

The Hohenzollerns

The Hohenzollerns were once one of the most important family dynasties in Germany. The name comes from the seat of the line, Hohenzollern Castle in Swabia. The princely family provided the burgraves of Nuremberg from 1192, the margraves and electors of Brandenburg from 1415, the dukes from 1618, the kings of Prussia from 1701 and the German emperors from 1871 to 1918. At the end of the First World War there was a fall, after the dissolution of Prussia in 1945 the family property was nationalized. The possessions in Swabia remain in family hands.
