Yes. Like a young lord in a play.

Louises daughter??

Elisabeth inherited Louise's eyes. Later she was much thinner and had more female features. In this pic she really looks like a young man.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Yes. She looks a bit like Augusta Viktoria, Queen of Portugal.

Lovely postcards. Not too much when they grew up...

I'm in contact with one of Elisabeth's granddaughters. She once sent me some photos of Elisabeth as an adult. In my opinion she wasn't a beauty, but a good-looking woman. Even as an old lady, she had a smart appearance and seemed to be happy.

I guess I have never seen pictures of Clemens Joseph as an adult except for the one Rani posted. This photo was published in a book about the Wittelsbach-crypts by Hans Rall. As far as I know he worked as an art historian and was quite close to Jean-Louis Schlimm as the author once mentioned in an interview about Sophie Charlotte d'Alencon.

At wikipedia you can read that he was an art historian and unmarried. Donīt know why. I think both of them are quite unknown. A pity.

I see a lot of photos of Louise in family groups, she must have been a very active old lady.

An excellent photograph. She wears the tall tiara she wears in the early years. I suspect it might have been part of her dowry or wedding present. She later wore a big floral tiara in her later years.
