Countess Ingrid Alexandra Irma Astrid Benedikte von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth was born 16 August 2003 in Denmark, the daughter of Count Jefferson von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth & Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, Countess von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth {Source}. She has one older brother{Source}:
  1. Count Friedrich Richard Oscar Jefferson von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth

She was christened in Germany in December 2003, with the following as her godparents {Source}:
  1. Countess Bettina von Pfeil and Klein-Ellguth (her paternal aunt)
  2. Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg (her maternal aunt)
  3. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark (her maternal 1st cousin 1x removed)
  4. Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark (her maternal 1st cousin 1x removed)
  5. Prince Georg of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Hohenstein
  6. Martin Bleyer

She is named for:
  1. Ingrid: For her maternal great-grandmother Queen Ingrid of Denmark
  2. Alexandra: For her mother, Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, Countess von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth
  3. Irma: no idea (an educated guess: her paternal great grandmother or just a name her parents liked?)
  4. Astrid: her paternal grandmother
  5. Benedikte: Her maternal grandmother


She is not a member of the Danish Royal Family, does not perform any official duties nor is in line for the throne due to her mother not being raised in Denmark per her great-grandfather's requirements. However, she is distantly in line for the British throne and related to most of Europe's present monarchs. She resides in Paris with her mother, father and brother. She likely speaks French, Danish and German.

She does participate in the annual family photo calls (Summer 2013, she is the one in the white dress with the blue dots, 2014 seen here in front of her grandmother and great-aunt in white shorts and in 2015, she is seen wearing orange with her brother and younger 2nd cousin, Prince Vincent . Most recently, in 2016, she is seen standing with her mother behind Crown Prince Fredrick, going for the "casual look") and official family events (such as the christening of her 2nd cousin Prince Henrik and wedding of her maternal aunt and godmother), but other than that she does not perform any official duties or functions for the Danish monarchy and little is known about her.
