There are several of Alexandrine as a little girl, many on the site--or at least there used to be. As for Cecile--have you checked her thread?

Yes , i checked her thread and i just find one with her mother, all dressed in white with a parasol in her hand. About Heinrich, nothing, just pictures of him in his fifties and with his family

Ps: Those postcard of Kronprinzessin Cecilie are in her thread? Cause, if they are..i totally missed em !

I just realized there s a misunderstood about my request :P. Im looking for childhood pictures of Duchess Cecilie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, not her daughters.


Sorry about that. I didnt explain well what i wanted

You might want to post the query in Cecile's thread where more people might see it. These help threads are predominantly for help ID'ing a photo and the like so that we don't have thread upon thread of 'Who is in this photo?'. People who are interested in Cecile might see the question in her thread and perhaps be able to supply some photos. I have one of her as a toddler in a carriage I bought from ebay--I don't know if that's one of the ones you've seen.

I think Heinrich was much photographed because Vicky was very much into her family and does photos, paintings and even sketches of her children...

This is Carl of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. But I found him as Carl 1708-1752 en as Carl 1741-1816
Does anybody know which one it is?



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

Is this Carl of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the father of Queen Louise of Prussia?

Regards, Gabriella.

Yes, indeed, he's the father of Queen Louise of Prussia. By the way, he's got the same face on his other portraits, with this a bit large "turned-up" nose.

Glad Luise did not look like her father...

That's what I was thinking too! But he was not bad when he was young. And actually, she had a little something of him... when he was young!

Do you have a portrait of him when he was young.

Here you are! He's quite good looking here.

And look, on this portrait you understand where Louise did get her "mischievous" face from, don't you?

Wonder if a colour copy exists ? We can see his fresh coloring as well.

I've never seen this picture in colour, I just know this black and white photography. It's a portrait of Ziesenis, kept in Berlin but I don't know exactly where... Stadt Schloss, probably.
