Until I was looking at one of the genealogical sites, I was unaware that Wolfgang had remarried a few years after Marie Alexandra's death. His second wife was Ottilie Moeller who was about 13 years younger than him and who died in 1991. Does anyone have any information of her or them as a couple?

Not much on members of that family generally. I cannot find any personal info on Marie Alexandra, only knew who she was (daughter of Max of Baden & Marie Louise of Cumberland), had a brother who married Princess Theodora of Greece and who she married.

Does anyone have pictures or portraits of Princess Marie of Hesse-Cassel, daughter of Landgrave Frederick of Hesse-Kassel, and his wife, Princess Caroline of Nassau-Usingen who married Grand Duke George of Mecklenburg-Strelitz? I've been looking for something of her and I haven't been able to find anything.  :-[ Thank you! :)

Friedrich Wilhelm of Hesse-Kassel (1820-1884).  Does anyone have a bigger/better version?

Found as Princess Sybille of Hesse-Kassel, the youngest daughter of Friedrich-Wilhelm and Princess Anna of Prussia.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing--but I wasn't 100 percent certain it was her; thanks for confirming.

There doesn't seem to be much information about Friedrich and Anna's children.  The one I'd like to know more about is Marie-Polyxene, who died when she was only ten, such as, how did she die?  I believe her death, along with the deaths of Friedrich-Wilhem the husband and Friedrich-Wilhelm the eldest son, influenced Anna's converstion to Catholicism.

She was supposed to be wife of King Alexander Obrenovic of Serbia.The ex-King Milan of Serbia and German Emperor Wilhelm II were for it and Wilhelm said that officially the parents of the bride should decide...parents were also for the match,but neither the bride nor the groom were for it...

It seems both later married for love,she married Freiherr von Vincke and Alexander married his former lover Draga!

We had discussed Sibylle & Alexander on the previous page--though the discussion was almost 2 years ago. :) There's a little additonal information on that page.

Yes, Sibylle had 2 children--both sons.
