Crown Prince Rupprecht's daughter wrote her memoirs for the European Royal History Journal in our Issue 46 (August 2005).  A very interesting document indeed.

Did she love her husband, him being so much older and all?  Was it an arranged marriage?

To Aliss:

All that I have read about Rupprecht and Antonia was focused on the years they suffered the nazi´s prosecution. I can writte a lot about these rough times. I don´t know if they were married by love, but I always supposed they had strong feelings. The engagement aroused a great criticism in Luxembourg, due to the fact that Rupprecht, as a militar commander, had fought in the Battle of Lorraine, I believe...The pressure under the grand duchess Marie-Adelaïde, elder sister of Antoniette, was very strong. So, the royal family of Luxembourg had nothing to gain with the marriage between Antoniette and Rupprecht.

They became engaged on the 50th wedding day of Rupprecht´s parents, the 20th february 1918. After a short time the engagement had to be canceled as various people in Luxembourg accused Antonia´s eldest sister Marie-Adelaide to be too friendly with Germany as also her sister Hilda was engaged with a German prince. Antonia seems to have suffered a lot because of the break off of her engagement and when she met Rupprecht again in the early 1920s they became re-engaged (with the help of some aunts) as there were no longer any political reasons against the marriage.

I don´t know if it was "real" love, Antonia was 30 years younger than Rupprecht after all. As Antonia´s father died when she was quite young, she maybe also searched for a "Vaterfigur". Who knows? :-\

As there is a thread about her "successor" Antonia, I thought that Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria´s first wife Duchess Marie Gabrielle of Bavaria deserves a thread too!

Marie Gabrielle was the third daughter of Karl Theodor Duke in Bavaria (actually his forth girl as he had a daughter - Amélie - out of his first marriage to Sophie of Saxony) and his second wife Princess Marie José of Braganca. She married Pruince Rupprecht of Bavaria in 1900 and they had five children together; unfortunately all but one of this children died prematurely. Also Marie Gabrielle died young in 1912 due to kidney disease.

The meloncholic looks came from her Braganca heritage. Her aunt Archduchess Karl Ludwig of Austria was considered a great beauty, but"a very melancholic one". However Marie Gabrielle had reason to be melancholic as four of her five children died prematurely (she didn´t live to see her eldest son died though as he died in 1914) and since the early times of her marriage she was ill very often and had to spend a lot of time abroad, e.g. Egypt.
