You're very welcome. Given that she was Adelheid's mother in law (and the photoback may very well say 'Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein or something like it), I can see where the mistake could be made. I contacted Huis Doorn as well.

It is said that the sitter is Princess of Prussia in 1902 painted by Richard Reimanns:

Any thoughts who might this be?

I agree; she does not look familiar. 1902 would be too early for any of the daughers-in-law of WII, and the image doesn't look like any of them. Certainly not Irene or VL. Too young for Louise of Baden. Doesn't look anything like Vicky and Fritz's four girls.

Possibly Dona's younger sister Louise Sophie?

I had looked at the Online Gotha last night trying to see who it may possibly be--there weren't too many Prussian princesses all together and definitely not during this time frame. Most were either too young or too old. Louise Sophie was one of the right age but it would be a really bad likeness. I tried searching the artist as well and couldn't find a record of a princess he painted. I wonder if something was lost in translation and the painting was owned by a Prussian princess and not of one.

Good point. As the woman in the portrait actually doesn't look like any Princess of Prussia.

It could well be the case...or maybe just some Princess in Prussia,not of Prussia,if not just owned by Princess of Prussia.

Found this portrait in Nobility portraits by Oliver Mark...It only consists of German royals and nobles,so I assumed the question should be posted here in this thread...

Here is a link to the site: http://www.oliver-mark.com/portfolios/nobility-portraits/
