Can someone post porters of Ludwig II of Hesse and Wilhelmine of Baden, grandparents of Alexander I.


Hi Boyar

You should check the Hessen-Darmstadt Thread on pictures (I guess this is what you mean with porters!?) I think I saw at least one of Wilhelmine.

Ludwig II lived 1777-1848, Wilhelmine from 1788-1836


Ludwig II is not the real grandfather of Sandro. Well officially in those days yes, he agreed to legitimate the last 3 children, so Alexander von Hessen is not the real son of Ludwig II. After Wilhelmine gave birth to an heir and another Son (Ludwig III and Prinz Karl) she felt, I guess, that she had done her duty and she retreated to Jugenheim/Schloß Heiligenberg and the Rosenhöhe. Lu II & Wilhelmine where first cousins, so I don't really think it was a love match.  Her next 3 children (Elisabeth, Alexander, Marie) were the children of August Freiherr von Senarclens-Grancy.

It's been rumored but never proven to be true. I think Richard Hough wrote of it in his book on Louis and Victoria and it's been mentioned elsewhere. There were rumors that followed Marie to Russia when she married Alexander II, much as Cecile of Baden had to contend with when she married GD Michael.

Hallo TampaBay

I've got this information from different sources, books and articles I read.
I know it is hard to belive. In the  book "Das Haus Hessen" from Prof. Franz
( former head of the Staatsarchiv in DA) it is also mentioned.  The one picture I have of August Freiherr von Senarclens-Grancy you really see a strong  similarity with Alexander von Hessen.  


Greetings from DA

He was the master of the horse at the Hessian Court.

Here's what The Romanovs has to say about the situation:

(Upon Tsarevitch Alexander falling in love with Marie Hesse) 'Early maturity had owed something, perhaps, to the unhappiness of her childhood; her parents had been estranged for some years before her mother's death from consumption, when Marie was eleven. It was said that not only had she been born several years after her parents ceased to live together, but also that the Grand duke's master of the hosre was her father, and that the Grand Duke had only acknowledged her..in order to avoid a scandal.'

Just as a little reminder, on Thursday, April 5, Sandro would have been 150 years  :).  *05. April 1857

I'm working on a little exhibition about Sandro' Life and his wife Johanna von Hartenau which should take place in Jugenheim. Since research is very time consuming  :o I had to pospone my Idea of an exhibition due to his 150. birthday on Thursday. It will take some more time.

Hello everyone,

I have a very important question for you. Does anyone here knows where is the exact burial place of Johanna Loisinger, Countess von Hohenau ?

Thank you!


 She was buried on St. Leonhard Cemetery at Graz, Austria .
