Saxony-Lauenbourg: any pictures???
« on: August 12, 2008, 06:15:56 AM »
Hi.
I'm looking for pictures of princes and princesses of the house of Saxony-Lauenbourg (Sachsen-Lauenburg) (yes I knox I'm a little strange!).
Especially if someone has any picture of
- Francis I, duke of Saxony-Lauenbourg (1510-1581) ;
- Anna of Saxony-Lauenbourg (1672-1741), the last Saxony-Lauenbourg, who married the last Medici, Gian-Gastone de'Medici (died 1737).

Thank you, just in case!

For the beginning (I know, you are not interested in her): Franziska Sybilla Augusta (1675-1733), younger sister of Anna Marie Franziska (1672-1741), married to Ludwig WIlhelm Baden-Baden.


Anyway, Anna Marie Franziska was first married to Philip Wilhelm Pfalz-Neuburg, and had two daughters with him...

Yes, yes, I'm interested in her too (every Saxony-Lauenbourg is welcome!), but pictures of her are quite easy to find, she's the only one of the family in this case. For the others, nothing!!!

Yes Anna Marie Franziska was first married to Philip Wilhelm, and Philip Wilhelm's brother, Johannes Wilhelm, was married to Anna-Maria de'Medici, Gian Gastone's sister! When Philipp Wilhelm died, Anna-Maria organized the remarriage of Anna Maria Franziska with her own brother Gian Gastone. Bad idea, by the way. Gian Gastone hated Anna Maria Franziska immediatly, and reciprocally...

Thank you very much for your answer!

Interesting is, that these two portraits exist also as one painting - picture of Anna Maria Franziska is reversed (she is on the right side) and the flowers are in the middle of the painting.

Here are small pictures of her grandparents, Julius Heinrich (1585-1665) and his third wife Anna Magdalena, born countess Lobkowicz.
