KarlandZita, it's so good to see some new Luxembourg pictures; where are you finding them all?

Color illustration of Marie-Adelheid.

Love this one...is there maybe any other color portrait of her as an adult without this (water)mark?

Attractive picture of Marie Adelheid who seems to wear the short hair, no ? This fashion went very well with sound profile perfect.

from "the Royal Marriage Market of Europe" concerning GD Marie-Adelaide

http://books.google.com/books?id=LR8IAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA88&dq=Marie+Adelaide:+Grand+Duchess+of+Luxembourg,&ei=OGR0Sb2vGoagyATtwfy7BQ#PPA88,M1

It's interesting that this(don't how accurate this is) says that she was not a German sympathizer in World War I, yet she was felt to be sympathetic to the Germans at the time? Perhaps her percieved sympathy to Germany was kind of like Alexandra of Russia's percieved sympathy to Germany( more rumor than actual fact). It didn't take much back then to be called a German sympathizer.Marie Adelaide seems to have been very independent young woman, not surprising given that she was raised to be the heir to the throne.She may not have married even had she lived.
