Louisa and Elisabeth of Thurn und Taxis
« on: September 14, 2005, 02:54:19 AM »
Hallo,

I am searching for pictures of Louisa and Elisabeth of Thurn und Taxis, daughters of Helene (Néne), née Duchess in Bavaria, and Maximilian of Thurn und Taxis.

Thanks a lot ...

Marie  ;)

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Thanks cimbrio, but I am absolutely sure that this woman is NOT Helene in Bavaria. You found it on the royaltyguide website, didn't you?  ;)

And thank you, Danjel, for this nice picture of Elisabeth ...

Hehehe Actually you're probably right, I just searched in google images :D  though she seemed a bit odd, since her bone structure of her face didn't seem the same as the other pics of Nene I've seen. What happened to these two princesss Marie Charlotte? There must be a reason you're interested in them....

I have seen that photo of helene in the Royal Diary of Sisi though.  It was identified as Helene in that book.

Helen was thought to be the beauty of her family but I think she turned out to be the least attractive of the Bavarian sisters  :-/

You are right. Marie Redwitz, a lady in waiting of Helene's niece Amélie in Bavaria, wrote that Helene didn't care about her appearance (dress, hair, etc.). She was said to be a very sloppy, chaotic person.
She was the only one of her sisters who became thick in old age.

I've dug out a picture. The caption says :"Prince and Princess Friedrich de Hohenzollern".



Well, I think they are Luisa Taxis and her husband Friedrich of Hohenzollern...Anyway "Luisa" has a resemblance to Luisa that Agneschen posted.

I think you are right Svetabel. I have a pic of Prince Friedrich somewhere and this man looks very much like him.

Recently I  have dug in my extracts from various memories and bios of the Royal persons and found out an interesting episode about Luise of Hohenzollern ,nee Thurn und Taxis. If retelling shortly then the story is how Empress Augusta, spouse of Wilhelm I , was mixing in the matters of other people.
Young Luise arrived at Berlin as a bride and went to have a good entertaining. One evening she was going to put on her dress and suddenly noticed that the décolletage of her dress had been altered! She asked her maid and frightened girl told that the Empress ordered to alter the dress as she had considered such décolletage a shocking one. (Princess Luise was known as a very elegant woman, who loved looking  fashionably). So, infuriated Luise gave her maid a good scolding for not asking her about altering and made the girl re-altered the dress. After this Luise said to Augusta that she had tried  on her dresses in front of her mother (Helene, sister of Sissi) and mother approved Luise’s clothes. Old Empress had to hold her tongue. :)

I think Helenes children (luisa, elisabeth, maximilian marie and albert) were beautiful.

I believe this T&T beauty might have come especially from Erbprinz Maximilian's mother Fürstin Wilhelmine, née Freiin von Dörnberg...but the Dss in Bavaria also had good looks...

Elisabeth's children were quite beautiful...they had more handsome looks than the children of the Duke of Bragança's second marriage...
