I think it does look like her, and she was a very restless traveler even though her health was far from good (see John Rohl's "Purple Secret").

I was wondering if this could be Charlotte of Prussia sitting with Gustav V in the Stockholm Royal Box during the 1912 Olympics? She was cousin to his wife, Victoria, and I'm thinking it could be her. She has that same white-powdered, rather sunken eyed look that Charlotte around this period had.

That's definitely her.

Thanks, Sveta.

This was ID'd as Max Baden but it looks more like GD Boris to me:

100% sure that s my Boris  ;)

Ps: its amazing the amount of innacurate labels just because back then, someone labelled it wrong  and nothing in the archives have the time or knowledge to  correct them! xD

If that's Boris, this is a pretty significant misidentification. The picture is clear and of high quality, and the subjects were very famous and high profile at the time of this photo. And yet it happens.

This part of the collection comes from Lord Lonsdale who knew the participants. The 5th Earl of Lonsdale was a close friend of decades to the Kaiser.  He even entertained the Kaiser at Lowther Castle and the 2 had private dinners when the Kaiser visited England. He was known in the papers as the Kaiser's English Pal and frequently attended German miitary maneuvers as well as well as conducting a copious correspondence. Lady Lonsdale even launched the Kaiser's racing yacht Meteor II. The 2 were great sailing enthusiasts and frequently met up at Cowes and Kiel.  Lonsdale stuck by the Kaiser through thick and thin and maintained their correspondence after WW1, even though they never met again after 1914. 

 It's hard to believe he would've mislabeled them on the photographs but perhaps an error somewhere down the line if they were noted on the actual photos. Museums and archives frequently make errors. Still Max and Boris don't look much alike at all!

Well maybe they were just so confused to find Boris looking so dignified and appropriate, and not in his usual role of the outspoken playboy running around with his mistresses, that they assumed it couldn't be him :-)

Too funny! As good an idea as any. It is a rather different look for Boris than we are used to seeing. I haven't been able to find out yet when Lord Lonsdale and Boris may have crossed paths.

It is labeled as Fürstin von Hohenlohe-Langenberg by monongrammist "BS" in 19th century,although to me it looks more 20th century and doesn't look like any Fürstin von Hohenlohe-Langenburg from that period...Maybe it was some other member of the Hohenlohe-Langenburg family labeled as Fürstin instead of Princess/Prinzessin:



What do you think?

The style of the dress is from the beginning of 20 cent. definitely...The appearance of the woman is quite unique, I mean the features, so she could be easily recognized in a photo, but I don't recall any Hohenlohe-Langenburg Princess of that period with such a face.

Me too :( although,I am not an expert...That's why I posted here...

Maybe it's one of the less known members of the collateral branch of the family...

Hi!! does anybody knows who  s this lady

http://fotocollectie.huisdoorn.nl/HuDF-0070

It says its Adelheid of Schleswig-Holstein nee Pss of Hohenlohe - Langenburg, but obviously its not since this image its from the 1860s  and in that period Adelheid was quite young (she was born in 1835), not like this old lady

Thanks in advanced!!

It's Louise (or Luise), Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg (1796-1867). She was Adelheid's mother-in-law--as well as Princess Helena of Great Britain's.

She was born  Countess Lovisa-Sophie Danneskjold-Samsøe. In 1820 she married Duke Christian who renounced his rights to the  Duchy of Schleswig-Holstein in favor of his son. They had 7 children.
