Principality of Reuss
Fürstentum Reuß ältere Linie
House of Reuss - Elder Line

The Principality of Reuss Elder Line (German: Fürstentum Reuß ältere Linie) was a state in Germany, ruled by members of the House of Reuss. The Counts Reuss of Greiz, Lower- and Upper Greiz (German: Reuß zu Greiz, Untergreiz und Obergreiz), were elevated to princely status in 1778. Its members bore the title Prince Reuss, Elder Line, or Prince Reuss of Greiz. Similarly to the more numerous Reuss Younger Line, the male members of this house were all named "Heinrich", in honour of Heinrich VI who had benefited the family, and were numbered sequentially by birth, rather than by reign, the last series beginning with Heinrich I (born 1693) and ending with Heinrich XXIV (1878-1927).

The Principality of Reuss Elder Line had an area of 317 km² and a population of 71,000 (1905). Its capital was Greiz. In the aftermath of World War I, the territory of the Elder Line was merged with the Junior Line in 1919 as the Republic of Reuss, which was incorporated into the new state of Thuringia in 1919. The Reuss Elder Line died with the death of the childless Heinrich XXIV in 1927, after which its claims were passed to the younger line.

The Titles and Styles of the Family
This family is legendary for the fact that nearly every male member for centuries was named Heinrich. In modern times the family was divided into two main lines: those descended from Heinrich (1506-1572) and those descended from his brother Heinrich (1530-1572). The former, the Grafen Reuss von Greiz, Untergreiz, and Obergreiz, were elevated to princely status in 1778, and its members bore the title Prince or Princess Reuss, ältere Linie, or, sometimes, Prince or Princess Reuss zu Greiz, together with the fomal appellation of His or Her  Serene Highness. The members of this line were numbered sequentially, the last series beginning with Heinrich I (born 1693) and ending with Heinrich XXIV (1878-1927). The latter line were the Grafen Reuss von Gera, von Schleiz, von Lobenstein, von Köstritz and von Ebersdorf. The members of these branches of this line shared a numbering sequence which began and ended roughly as centuries began and ended. This line achieved princely status in 1806, and its members bore the title Prince or Princess Reuss, jüngere Linie, together with the formal appellation of His or Her Serene Highness, though they sometimes were referred to by their branch names (e.g., Prince Reuss zu Köstritz). The designation "jüngere Linie" was dropped in 1931. The Reuss Family before 1815 was called Reuss von Greiz, Reuss von Gera etc. After 1815 the various lines of the family changed their nobility particle to "zu".
