Yes,Sveta,I thought of her as well...but with so many branches you have more choices..It could also be:
-Luise Henriette Wilhelmine, Margravine of Brandenburg-Schwedt,later Princess von Anhalt-Dessau,lived from 1750-1811
-Luise of Schleswig-Holstein-Glücksburg,later Princess von anhalt-Koethen,lived from1749-1812
- Luise von Stolberg-Wernigerode,later Princess von Anhalt-Koethen,lived from 1744-1784

Those are the ones that had lived at that time...

A postcard showing a bridal carriage, evidently part of a series; I have it marked down as being connected with the wedding of Prince and Princess August Wilhelm, but I am not certain about that. Does anyone know?




I have the image from a magazine of the time and it was Cecile's wedding carriage.

I am having problems trying to find out how to link a photo I have on Photobucket to this link.  I have a postcard photo that I need to show you in order to get some info on it.  It seems that everytime I click on the "IMG" part of the address it says "Copied to Clickboard".  What is "clickboard"?????  I can not seem to get any help on this problem from the "Help" part of Photobucket.  I so much want to show you a postcard that I have of the Kaiserin of Germany at a train station with a group of people.  I want someone to help me with the German language on the postcard.  It shows the Kaiserin talking with some women.   There are also some children there in the group along with two men.  They seem to be waiting for a train to come to take them away to somewhere safe. The time period is that of WWI. The Kaiserin has a Red Cross band around her arm.   It is quite an interesting photo taken inside a train station in Germany. The postcard says:

"Beratung alleinreisender junger Madehen durch die Bahnhofsmission"

The back of the postcard has the following in German:

"Ierein (or "Serein"or "Berein"-I can't read the old type of German printing) Wohlfahrts der weibl, Jugend unter dem Protectorat, Ihrer Majestat der Kaiserin".

*I am thinking that perhaps some form of money went to aid young children or women when this postcard was bought or sent.  The back of the postcard mentions something about "10pf" (which I assume is some form of German money).

***Can anyone help me?  As soon as I figure out how to link my photo to this site--then I will show you the photo on the postcard.  I really don't understand why it is so hard to get a photo on this site!  I don't seem to have any sort of "paste and copy" system on my computer.  I really hope someone can help me soon!  Thanks!

1. Go to Photobucket and copy the Direct Link (2nd down) for the image you want to copy. Just double-click on the link and it will say 'copied'.

2. Click the second button from the left in the second row above the posting box. THat will call up two sets of 'img' in square brackets.

3. Right click between the two sets of square brackets and click 'paste' to insert the link that you have copied. (It is important that you get it in the right place between the two sets of brackets.

4. And when you press post, the image should appear. It is inconceivable that you don't have a copy and paste system on your computer. What you copy is stored on your clipboard until you paste it. (I think that's right, I'm a complete ignoramus about computers! But even I can work the picture system here.)

The card refers to guidance/ advice that is offered by the Traveller's Aid to young girls who are travelling alone. On the back it says Society (Verein) for the Welfare of Young Women (literally female youth) under the patronage of Her Majesty the Empress. I'm afraid I don't anything about this organization. Do try to post the picture, it would be interesting to see it. If it doesn't work, we'll probably be able to discover why.


P.S. thank you granduchessella for the information about the carriage.

The mother is Friederike of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, born Hessen-Harmstadt, spouse of Carl II 1741-1816.
But who is the child?

Hello
Searching through ebay I have found a cdv of a "Princess Hohenzollern". The picture was taken by Levitsky. Anyone of you knows who was the woman?

It's Antonia of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen. She was born an Infanta of Portugal and married Leopold of H-S. Their son Ferdinand became King of Romania while a granddaughter, Augusta Victoria, became Queen (in exile) of her grandmother's native Portugal. I think she and Leopold have a thread here somewhere.

Wowwww...thanks, Granduchessella -ultimately I spent a good deal of time giving you my thanks ;) I never had seen such a picture of Antonia, as a young woman. I think her grand-daughter Lisabetta has a great resemblance with her, by the way.

Indeed it is Maria Antonia of Portugal, daughter of Queen Maria II and King Consort Ferdinand (né Saxe-Coburg & Gotha [Kohary Line]).

It can only be Carl 1741-1816. The suit and especially the hair-style are obviously those of 1780-1790...

Quite a lot of Cecile as a girl as postcards. The hard one to find is of her as a baby and Alexandrine as a little girl....
