I've wondered about that (Alexandra being in line for Monaco). I know there's little chance that Alexandra will be reigning princess of Monaco (what with 3 older half-siblings) but she's being raised a Lutheran (the religion of the House of Hannover) while Monaco is offically a Roman Catholic Country (in it's constitution) that has never had a non-RC at its head. Is that going to be a problem on the very rare chance Alexandra succeeds to Monaco?

It might be. I'm not sure. I always forget that religion is a factor for monarchs. ;) There's a good chance that she will not succeed in Monaco, because her older brothers and sister will likely have kids when they're older. Even if Prince Albert's kids aren't in line for the throne, they'll (Charlotte, Pierre and Andrea) still be because they're considered legitamate.

To part quote from Marlene Eilers Queen Victoria's Descendants book.

Isabelle, died of a drug overdose on 28 November 1988. Ludwig-Rudolf tried to revive her with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation before calling for an ambulance.

Ludwig Rudolf then telephoned his brother Ernest August in London telling him of his wife's death and requesting him to look after his eight month old son Otto-Heinrich (born 13 February 1988).  Ludwig Rudolf then drove 15 miles to near the family's hunting lodge where he was found hours later having shot himself with a hunting rifle.

Ludwig Rudolf and his wife had been married for just over one year and her tragic life was curtailed at the  young age of 26.

A nice photo of those children with their mother Thyra and grandparents King Christian IX and Queen Loiuse 1886







One child is missing from the list. Ernst August and Thyra had six children. Prince Christian of Hanover (1885-1901) is missing and I assume must be the baby in the photograph if it was taken in 1886.  Their last child Ernst August of Hanover wasn't born until 1887.

If anyone has the book Xenia, Once a Grand Duchess, there are some lovely pictures in it of the Cumberland/Hanover children as teenagers.  Does anyone know how George William and Christian died?

Unfortunately, I do not have a scanner.

Marienburg Castle (named for Queen Marie) was a birthday gift from her husband, King George V.
It was intended to serve as a secluded residence where the royal couple could get away from the affairs of state. The castle is located about 20 kilometres to the south of Hannover. The castle was built between 1858 and 1867 and is of historical importance as one of the most significant neo-Gothic buildings in Germany.

It is also remarkably well-preserved. The rich and elaborate interior, with its colourfully painted ceilings, its costly wooden panelling and its sumptuous furniture, provides a unique testimony to the art of interior design at the time of its creation. The furnishings, which have been preserved in their authentic original form, display a remarkable quality of execution. Particularly notable is the round library with its colourful vaulting, its lancet windows and its bookshelves of exquisitely carved oak with metal fittings. One can also see cushions embroidered by Marie and some of George's weapons collection.

The castle grounds were originally planned as a wild garden in the English landscape style. Romantic winding paths lead all around Marienburg Castle, so that it can be viewed from every side.

The building work was never fully completed. In 1866 the Kingdom of Hannover was occupied by the Prussian army, and King George V went into exile in Austria. The castle was left uninhabited; but today it has been well restored, is open to the public as a museum and is also available for events.

Marie of Saxe-Altenberg (1818-1907)

Husband: George V, King of Hannover lost his throne as a result of annexation by Prussia 20 Sep 1866 (1819-

married: Hannover Feb 1843 14 Apr 1818-Gmunden 9 Jan 1907)  
 
children:

Ernst August, Duke of Cumberland; married Princess Thyra of Denmark

Frederika (1848-1926); m.Windsor Castle 1880 Alfons Count von Pawel-Ramingen (Frederika had been mentioned as a possible bride for QV's son Leopld, who did fall for her. She was in love with her future husband though but he wasn't an eligible husband. With Leopold's help she asked for QV for help and QV helped them to marry at Windsor Castle. They lived in England the remainder of their lives and were very close to Fredrika's cousins. She helped facillitate the marriage between Ena Battenberg & Alfonso XIII of Spain)

Mary (1849-1904). Mary was thought of as a potential bride as well--I think for either Alfred or Arthur--but she never married.

Hey Marc: here she is again: Queen Friederike with some of her children of her three marriages. It would be great if we could succeed in posting pictures of all of her children?

1) Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig 1794-1863, he married Luise Pss of Anhalt-Bernburg 1799-1882

2) Friederike Luise Wilhelmine Amalie 1796-1850, she married 1818 Leopold IV Duke of Anhalt Dessau 1794-1881

3) Friedrich Wilhelm Karl Georg 1795-1798


Her second marriage was with Friedrich Wilhelm of Solms Braunfels 1770-1814 and the (6) childen from this marriage:
 
1) Sophie 1799-1799

2) Friedrich Wilhelm1800-1800

3) Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Casimir Georg Carl Maximilian 1801-1868 married 1831 to Maria Kinsky von Wchinitz 1809-1892
   
4) Auguste Luise Therese Mathilde 1804-1865, she married 1827 Albert von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt 1798-1869

5) Alexander Friedrich Ludwig 1807-1867, he married 1863 Luise von Landsberg-Velen 1835-1894

6) Friedrich Wilhelm Karl Ludwig Georg Alfred Alexander 1812-1875), he married  1843 Sophie von Löwenstein-Wertheim 1814-1876

 
And the third marriage was of course to King ERNST AUGUST I of Hannover 1771-1851 and they had one child:  

GEORG V Friedrich Alexander Karl Ernst August King of Hannover married 1843 Marie Pss of Saxe-Altenburg 1818-1907
 
 
 
Queen Friederike of Hannover





Her daughter in law Luise princess of Prussia
Princess of Anhalt Bernburg 1799-1882 married to her son Friedrich of Prussia



Her son Friedrich prince of Prussia 1794-1863


Two of her sons together FRIEDRICH LUDWIG PRINCE OF PRUSSIA 1794-1863
AND HIS HALF-BROTHER WILHELM PRINCE ZU SOLMS-BRAUNFELS 1801-1868 (painted in 1830)




Her son Friedrich Wilhelm of Solms-Braunfels 1801-1867




Her son in law Albert, Furst of Schwarzburg Rudolstadt

Hi.

I just read about from another thread that Princess Frederica died in England and left jewels to the Duke of Gloucester. Is that true ?

Also I thought Ferderica lived in Southern France, and her place was used by Ena taking lesssons to become Catholic. Right ?

Don't know too much about her later life. Anyone help ?  ???
