I've got the book "Das Fürstliche Haus Hohenzollern: Private Einblicke in die Fotoalben" today.

Many photos are new and unseen to me.

Some rare pics of Queen Stephanie of Portugal and also of Maria Teresa of Naples-Sicily ("Mädi") and my beloved Fürstin Antonia of Portugal.
Also a stunning pic of Sisi's niece and Sophie of Alencon's daughter Louise with her long hair open (Her hair never seemed soo long.. Her hair gets over her knees!)

There are minimal mistakes in the text: A picture shows Gisela of Austria with her daughter, but the description says it is Gisela with her sister Marie Valerie.
Another error: Viktoria of Prussia ("Moretta") is labelled as Crown Princess of Prussia, I think she was mixed up with her mother Vicky.



But besides this little mistakes, it is a wonderful book.
I highly recommend it.

I was a little bit disappointed, just 3-4 pics of Friedrich Eugen and no one of Luisa.
@MV: the authors say that we can see Josephine and Carl von Hohenzollern-Namedy on the picture on page 82. But I think it´s Eugen and Luisa. What do you think?
And on page 105 I don´t find the Empress Auguste Viktoria, or am I blind?

But it´s a very wondeful book with many unseen photos, like Marie said. Recommendable!!
And I´m now a fan of Maria Theresia, Mathildes daughter.

I just took a look again...
And I think you're right, the couple is Luisa and Friedrich Eugen. They are not Josephine and Carl von Hohenzollern-Namedy.
I don't see Auguste Viktoria also, she is not on the picture.

One of my fave pics is on page 99 Fürstin Antonia as "Schäferin", in the text is mentioned that she took a little white sheep with her to the costume party!
Soooo cute!

Thanks MV! The lady on the photo is small and fragile like Luisa, and Josephine was the opposite. At least one photo of Luisa :)

Antonia looks stunning on this photo.
One of my favourite photos is on site 96 with Marie and her SILs & Marie zu Wied.

Good photoalbum. But there are mistakes with dates, as always with any album)). I am much impressed with the photo of Louise D'Alencon - unbelievable hair!

John van der Kiste is working on a book (it's almost due to be sent to the publisher) on the 3 youngest of the daughters of Empress Frederick & Friedrich III--Victoria, Sophie and Margaret. It started off as a potential ebook ala his one on Charlotte & Feodore but grew and now will be published in print form. Can't wait! He has a Facebook page for anyone who wants to 'like' it and follow it for updates.

That's great news grandduchessella.

It's a shame that no german author wrote about the three sisters yet.

I hope for more infos about Mossy.

The cover looks like an ad for a soap opera! But considering how their lives played out one might consider it appropriate.
