About Christian II Friedrich Karl Alexander von Brandenburg-Ansbach, Markgraf

Reportedly, Prince Charles was on a hunting trip in Switzerland where he had an illicit love affair that led to the birth of a child Because of the scandal it would create, little Johann (John) was adopted by the Clauser family of Zurick, Switzerland. This child of the Prince was born to Countess Salome Von Grafenried who was already married to Count Von Grafenried. Through a mutual friend of the people involved, the baby boy was adopted by the Clauser’s. As the story is told, Countess Salome lived only two years after the birth of the baby, dying of heartbreak. The baby was given the name Johann Clauser I. When Johann Clauser I died on 30 Jan 1828, he was buried in the Grafenreid church in Fraubrunnen under the name of Grafenreid (not Clauser) beside the crypt of his mother, The Countess Salome. Prince Alexander, who kept contact with his young son through his boyhood, is said to have put a huge amount of money for him in the Von Buren bank. There were also papers in the mother’s crypt to verify the relationship of Johann Clauser to the prince. Johann Clauser I’s son, Johann II, returned to Switzerland from this country to claim his share of the money after his father’s death. He claims that he was gotten drunk or perhaps doped. When he regained consciousness the crypt had been robbed of the note verifying his parentage.
