It seems those things in families do take along time to heal, if ever. Those involved should have known that.

Neither do I; I don't know much about this youngest daughter.

I do know a bit...I think they did reconcil at a later date. Bee's granddaughter knew Kraft (Sandra's son) well, but not his son.

Her greed on the Coburg inheitance cost her her sister's friendship and quite awhile passed before they could forgive Sandra (who in a fit slapped Baby Bee).


What is the story regarding this "greed".

Where can I find anymore information around here about Sandra's two younger daughters, Princess Alexandra Beatrice and Princess Irma Helene?

I know they did not marry. Did they have any romances or any children? So the only descendents of Sandra are through her son Gottfried and her oldest daughter Princess Marie Melita?

Sandra also had a son named Prince Alfred who lived for two days - 16-18 April 1911.  :'(

What did he die of, does anyone know?  ???

Do Sandra's daughters Irma and Alexandra have their own thread/s?

I do not believe that any of Sandra's children have their own threads.  However, I too would like to learn more about them.  I had no idea she had had another son!

Sandra died when she was quite young - only 64 I think.  :(

What did she die of? Her husband was fifteen years older than her and he lived eight years more after Sandra died.

I know that Sandra's daughter Alexandra was very close to her aunt Beatrice ("Baby Bee") and she spent a lot of time with her in Spain, where she bought an estate.

So many of Queen Victorias grandchildren only survived into there 60s. Quite sad really. Do any of Alexandras letters to her grandmother QV survive?

Sadly so much of the families  souveniers were lost in the 1963 fire...The Winterhalters were perhaps the greatest tragedy..but not the only one...

I can't recollect my original source, Alfred died two days after his birth from heart failure.

Sad about the son--was he premature?

The best sources of info for Alexandra and her family that I've found are Marlene's Queen Victoria's Descendants and, for Alexandra alone, a series of articles in Royalty Digest.

I think 2 of the daughters were ardent Nazi supporters, like their mother and other Coburg relatives. One source said they were 'noisy' about it.

None of the daughters seem very remarkable but Gottfried led a somewhat colorful life as a young man.
