Does anybody know,has Marie Valerie inherited anything from her father after his death?He recognized her as his daughter before he died,so I assume he left something in his will to her...or did everything went to his sisters after his death?

No.  I was the first person to write about Valerie Marie in my book, Queen Victoria's Descendants, where you will find the most details about her life.  Albert never met Valerie Marie

Sad in a sense that Albert never met Marie Valerie, but understandable given the mores of the time. At least he wrote to her while he was setting his affairs in order before he died, and Marie Louise at least was fond of her.

Is there any information on what became of Marie Valerie's mother?
