Daughters of Frederick VIII & Queen Louise
« on: December 20, 2004, 06:40:49 PM »
I would like to find out more about Princess Louise, the eldest daughter of Frederick VIII and Queen Louise. (Aunt Swan) I know she married a prince of Schaumburg Lippe, had a daughter and died very early in life. Can anyone shed some light on this princess?

I'm also interested in Louise's sisters--Ingeborg (my personal favorite), Thyra and Dagmar, so if anyone would like to share information about them as well, it would be nice! Thank you!

She was apparently very unhappy in her marriage and reportedly committed suicide by drowning herself in a lake. The marriage had been arranged by her mother.

Thyra was another Toria who didn't escape the SmotherMother. VERY stifling life.

Dagmar was finally able to marry a commoner after her mother's death. I forget the name as it's a long Swedish one. I think he was an Army officer. She was known as Mrs. ?? after that.

Princess Louise of Denmark (1875-1906) married Prince Friedrich of Schaumburg-Lippe (1868-1945) and had three children by him:

1) Marie Louise (1897-1938 ) who married Prince Friedrich Sigismund of Prussia (1891-1927) and had two children by him, a son and a daughter. The son, Prince Friedrich Karl of Prussia (b. 1919) married twice but fathered no children.  The daughter, Princess Louise of Prussia, married morganatically, had one son who lives in New York, but he did not have any children from his marriage either.

2) Christian (1898-1974) who married his first cousin Princess Feodora of Denmark (1910-1975) and had 3 sons and 1 daughter.  In fact his son Prince Wilhelm (b. 1939) is a regular at the Danish court where he maintains very good relations with his cousins Margrethe and Elisabeth.

3) Stephanie (1899-1925) who married Fürst Viktor Adolf of Bentheim und Steinfurt (1883-1961) and had 2 sons by him, one died during the Second World War, the other married but had no children.

As for Ingeborg, Trond Norén Isaksen, a well-respected Norwegian biographer, has covered her and her children in various, marvelous by the way, biograhical articles in past issues of the EUROPEAN ROYAL HISTORY JOURNAL, which were thoroughly researched and handsomely illustrated!

Hint hint hint! ;D Just kidding! I'm sure the issue was lovely! Yours must be the only journal to cover Ingeborg, because I've never seen anything written about her anywhere else. I love Ingeborg's sweet experssion in photographs. I've collected many postcards of her and her children, it's so nice to see old Royals actually smiling in photos!

Thank you to everyone regarding more info on Louise. That's so very sad that she took her life in that way... Does anyone know where it happened?

My Journal is unique in the choice of areas we choose to study and as a royalty magazine we try our best to have a good selection of articles every time, not just about a small group of families, as others do.

I've never seen any photos of Louise could you show me photos of her as a baby, child, and adult?
Could you also show me baby photos of Thyra & Dagmar?

I love the bottom group shot ella, I have never seen it before, where did you find it, if I may ask. Carl and Harold looked so similar didnt they. I think all the sons of Fred and Louise (save for poor Gustav) grew up to be quite handson in their youth. Esp. Christian. It is a pitty that their sisters were, in my opinion, not very pretty. Although Louise in her teens and early twenties was some what attractive. She did look just like her mother who I always thought had an odd if not unappealing look. This is just my opinions though. By the way the Corbis one ella posted is Thyra.

It was from a Danish memorial book I bought a looong time ago on Christian X. It's not really a book like a biography or photo book but it's too large for a magazine. Does that make sense?

GDElla do we know what caused the unhappiness in her marriage?  Did she really commit suicide as a result of this unhappiness?
