Prince Bernhard, whose full name - Leopold Friedrich Eberhard Julius Kurt Karl Gottfried Peter zur Lippe Bisterfeld - born June 29, 1911 in the town of Jena in Germany and lived a long, 93-year life.

He managed to surprise many. As a chemist, he served in the German Secret Service, wrote poisons, he joined the SS and even in the ranks of Hitler's party. However, personally in any atrocities Prince Bernhard has not been noticed. Anyway archival sources about this silent. A resident of Holland, the German prince was because he married Crown Princess of Orange, the future Queen of the Netherlands Julian.

Being a man of more than adventurous and not alien to a certain conformity, a secret from his wife, Bernard joined the MI-6, where he met with the personnel agent Ian Fleming. Well, he was already in the novel "Thunderball", introduced his new friend and colleague in the image of a Count Lippe.

But it soon turned into Bernard, who became world-famous, 007. However, Ian Fleming himself always insisted that the prototype Bond - his elder brother Peter Fleming. However, all who knew him closely Bernard, always claimed the opposite, noting that the prince is very similar to the 007 - the same gallant, brave and amorous.
