Landkönig's progeny include a two-time Olympic and WEG qualifier. With over a million dollars in offspring earnings he holds an American progeny record. He produced the highest-priced jumper ever sold at the Hanoverian Elite auction, as well as a licensed son, a 2003 and 2004 Bundeschampionat qualifier and 11 auction selections out of 45 registered offspring. In 2005, one Landkönig gelding sold at the prestigious PSI Auction for more than $437,000. Landadel, Champion of his 100-Day Test, is one of the leading German sires and the most successful stallion of his age group. Landkönig's damline produced eight licensed stallions. His dam, Luna, who was written about in the Eylers millennium stallion book, also produced Devon Champion Grönlad; Gratulata, a World Cup qualifier with Michael Matz; Gina, Champion of Luxembourg, and 1991 Bundeschampionat participants and Grand Prix jumpers Genua and Gentleman.

Lord Adonis was raised/owned by renowned international Grand Prix jumper Rene Tebbel and took everyone's breath away when he was approved at the Oldenburg Hengst-Tage in 2010. Lord Adonis was imported to the U.S. in June 2012, and two months later attended the 2012 North American Stallion Performance Testing where he received an impressive 7th in Dressage (110.78), 7th in Jumping (111.83), 8th Overall (111.58), and was one of only four horses approved by the Hanoverian Society earning an Elite status. Judges remarked: “Lord Adonis impressed because of his good type and his long legs. He clearly is still developing. In jumping, his ability was especially impressive; in the dressage test, he received high ridability values. His sire Lordanos is known to produce a ground covering walk and a good canter.” His modern type, confident yet quiet demeanor and versatile talents have him fully licensed with the following breed organizations and studbooks: Westflisches Pferdestammbuch e.V., Westfalen Horse Assoc., AHS and Rhineland Society, Oldenburg Springpferde International, German Oldenburg Verband, American/Canadian/German Hanoverian Verband,(Accepted in the jumper breeding program) Rheinland Pfalz Saar, Royal Belgian Sport Horse Society (Studbook sBs) KWPN (regA) Canadian Sport Horse and Canadian Warmblood.

The top-priced Verden auction horse Lohengrin became the Hanoverian Show Jumper Champion and another son won the licensing in Finland. In 2013, Lordanos was named the top jumper sire in the United States by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF). In 2017 Lordan won the million Dollar Grand Prix again for a record second time. Three-year-old Lord Adonis son Kanuck, out of Jane O by Wellington/Joost, owned by John van den Bosh, bred by Boulder Ridge Ranch, won the free jump class at the Canadian Royal West with an 87.
The 16.3h Hanoverian, Relevantus, who goes by the show name “Zorro,” has an extensive international record that includes the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky and a Mexican National Championship with Federico Fernandez. He has also garnered multiple Grand Prix wins with Federico and Peter Wylde.

At his 30 -Day Test he earned 8.15 overall and at his 70-Day Test he scored 109.2 for dressage, 119.96 for jumping and 113.44 overall which shows his versatility and rideability.
