The Royal Family of the Prussian Empire is the Royal house of the Prussian Empire. The current Head of House is Alfred von Schliefen, who serves as Emperor of the Prussian Empire as well as Chief of General Staff. House von Schliefen was founded on March 3, 1649, following the end of the Thirty Years' War. Following the war, Dietrich Sunkel of the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg was given land and elevated to the office of Count of a small estate there. The house survived through direct descent to the birth of Alfred von Schliefen, born in 1956.
House von Schliefen over the lengthy period of time since its founding maintained relatively "pure" blood, most members of the house only having one child. Membership in the house can only be passed through direct descent, and as such the only members at this time are Alfred von Schliefen and his three children. The house has absolutely full control of its own affairs, and is not subject to outside review.
