Birth Name: Richard Nikolaus Eijiro von Coudenhove-Kalergi

Date of Birth: November 16, 1894

Place of Birth: Tokyo, Japan

Date of Death: 27 July, 1972

Place of Death: Schruns, Austria

Ethnicity:
*German, as well as Greek and Russian, and Danish, Belgian [Flemish and Walloon], Lithuanian, and Polish (father)
*Japanese (mother)

Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi was an Austrian-Japanese politician and philosopher. He served as the founding president of the Paneuropean Union for 49 years.

Richard was born in Tokyo, Japan, the son of Mitsuko “Mitsu” (Aoyama) and Heinrich Johann Maria von Coudenhove-Kalergi, a count and diplomat. His mother was born in Tokyo, Japan. His father was born in Vienna, Austria, of German, as well as Russian, Danish, Belgian (Flemish and Walloon), Lithuanian, and Polish, descent.

Richard’s paternal grandfather was Franz Karl von Coudenhove (the son of Franz Ludwig Graf von Coudenhove and Katharina Jakobine Augusta von Löwenstern). Richard’s grandfather Franz was born in Vienna, Austria. Richard’s great-grandfather Franz was born in Bingen am Rhein, Germany, the son of Georg Ludwig von Coudenhoven and Sophia von Hatzfeld, and had German and Belgian ancestry. Katharina was born in Tartu, Estonia, the daughter of Paul Ludwig Johann von Löwenstern, from Vana-Antsla, Estonia, and of Christiane Friederike von Gersdorff, from Königsberg, Prussia.

Richard’s paternal grandmother was Marie/Maria Kalergi (the daughter of Johannes/Joannou/Johan Ivan Emanuilovich Kalergis and Maria von Nesselrode). Richard’s grandmother Marie was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. Johannes was the son of Manuel Kalergi/Kalergis and Charlotte Jörgensen. The Kalergi family was of at least part Greek origin. Richard’s great-great-grandfather Manuel is sometimes cited as Russian, though he might have had Greek ancestry. Charlotte’s surname is Danish or Norwegian.

Richard’s great-grandmother Maria, a pianist, was born in Warsaw, Poland, the daughter of Karl Friedrich Joseph Fedor Karlovich von Nesselrode, a diplomat, who had German ancestry, and of Tekla/Thekla von Gorska h. Nałęcz, who was of Polish and Lithuanian descent; Richard’s great-great-grandfather Karl’s mother, Josepha von Hatzfeldt-Wildenburg, is said to have been a practicing Protestant who was born Jewish. This does not appear to be accurate.

Richard’s maternal grandparents were Kihachi Aoyama and Tsuneko “Tsune” Iwata.
