How did Prince Marcus’ fortune come about?
Prince Marcus von Anhalt earned most of his money through numerous lucrative ventures in the red light business. After a stay in the USA, he opened a table dance club in Germany, which was very successful. He then expanded in this area and at the same time opened several brothels, which he led to success in a targeted manner and brought him countless millions.
He first became known in 2006 when he was adopted and registered against payment from Zsa Zsa Gabor and Frédéric von Anhalt. Adoption got a lot of media coverage and ultimately brought him the attention he had hoped for.
Furthermore, around 2010, he began to appear actively on social media (mainly Facebook, now Instagram) as a self-promoter and further establish his strongly polarizing fictional character, the “super-rich Proll-Prince of Germany.” According to his records, with a follower amount of over 1,000,000, he previously made some hundred thousand euros per month through affiliate marketing and advertising deals lonely.
Today, as a “business coach,” he wants to show young people how to earn “quick money” on Instagram and become an influencer. Whether or how serious the coaching program of Prince Marcus actually remains to be questioned.
