Anni-Frid Synni Princess Reuss of Plauen (German: Anni-Frid Synni Prinzessin Reuss von Plauen; born Anni-Frid Synni Lyngstad, pronounced , 15 November 1945), widely known as Frida Lyngstad or by just the mononym Frida, is a Norwegian-born Swedish pop and jazz singer. Born in Norway to a Norwegian mother and a German father, she grew up in Sweden and was a member of the Swedish group ABBA between 1972 and 1982. After the break-up of ABBA, she continued an international solo singing career with mixed success. In 1997, Frida recorded her final album before 'retiring' from music. She now focuses on environmental issues and intends to return to the music business soon. In April 1963, aged 17 she married Ragnar Fredriksson. Immediately after their divorce in 1970, Lyngstad courted eventual ABBA band member Benny Andersson, co-habiting until they officially married in 1978. The couple divorced in 1981. In 1992, Lyngstad married Heinrich Ruzzo Prince Reuss of Plauen, who was a German Prince of the former sovereign House of Reuss. The prince died of lymphoma in October 1999. Lyngstad currently lives in Zermatt, Switzerland, sharing a home with her British boyfriend, Henry Smith, 5th Viscount Hambleden, since 2008.
