Carl-Alexander von Volborth
Born in Berlin-Charlottenburg, Volborth received the Gustaf von Numers Prize 1984 in the XVIth International Congress of Genealogical and Heraldic Sciences in Helsinki. He was a member of HEROLD, Verein für Heraldik, Genealogie und verwandte Wissenschaften zu Berlin e. V. from 1990 and a member of Académie Internationale d'Héraldique.
Volborth lived and worked in the United States (Cincinnati, Ohio) during the 1950s and 1960s. He was a teacher at the Cincinnati art school. Volborth married twice; firstly, in 1942, to Rose Ottilie (née Duvernoy, from whom he was divorced in the 1960s or 1970s, having had two sons) and a Belgian diplomat, Dr Diana Danys.
Volborth was admitted to the Johanniterorden ("Order of Saint John") in 1977. Four years later, he received the accolade as a Knight of Justice (Rechtsritter) in the Order. In 1962, Volborth illustrated and published a roll of arms of the knights of the Order living in North America.
