The Princess of Pless and the Pless family

The Princess of Pless, better known as Princess Daisy of Pless,  is the subject of a superb biography by W. John Koch,  Daisy Princess of Pless A Discovery.  A paperback edition was published in 2004, and is still available from Amazon, as well as private dealers.
Koch's biography was first published in German, Daisy von Pless: Fürstliche Rebellin.

The Princess was the author of several volumes, including Daisy Princess of Pless by Herself, which was published in 1929.  These books can be found through used book dealers.  My favorite site to use is Addall.  The link is  Click on used books. 

In 2002, Cygnet Press published  Hansel Pless: Prisoner of History, a Life of H.S.H.Hans Heinrich XVII, 4th Prince of Pless,  by Michael Luke.  This book is a biography of Daisy's eldest son, Hans Heinrich, known as Hansel, godson of Edward VII and Kaiser Wilhelm II.
