Anton Gunther Friedrich Elimar (January 23, 1844 Oldenburg– October 17, 1895 Erlau) was a duke of Oldenburg.


He was a child of Augustus, Grand Duke of Oldenburg and his wife, Princess Cecilia of Sweden daughter of King Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden.[1][2][3] He was the youngest of all sons but apparently the only one who lived. His elder half-sister was Amalia of Oldenburg, Queen Consort of Greece.

Anton was a charming prince and tried his best to please his worried father. His father was determined to keep his living son alive and make his wife Cecilia proud. Anton was patient but unlike his other half-sister and half-brothers he wanted to have a good education. He went to public academies which made his father concerned. When his father died Anton felt lonely but continued to take public academies.


On 9 November 1876, in Vienna, he married morganatically Baroness Natalie Vogel von Friesenhof (8 April 1854 Vienna-9 January 1937 Hungary), Alexandre Pushkin's niece and cousin of Prince Nikolaus Wilhelm of Nassau's wife. The couple had two children:

  • Countess Alexandrine Gustava Friederike von Welsburg (11 October 1877 Vienna-13 April 1901 Austria); who died unmarried at the age of 23
  • Count Gustav Gregor Alexander von Welsburg (29 August 1878 Hungary-29 November 1927 Switzerland); who married Countess Luise von Hahn and fathered three sons and one daughter.

In their former castle in Brodzany (Slovakia) now is Pushkin's museum.
