A daughter of Prince Albrecht of Prussia and unfortunate Princess Marianne of Netherlands.

Princess Alexandrine of Prussia ( 1 February 1842 - 26 March 1906), married in 1865 to Wilhelm Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin,2nd son of Grand Duke Paul Friedrich of Mecklenbourg-Schwerin. They had one daughter Charlotte (1868-1942), who married firstly Heinrich XVIII Prince Reuss zu Köstritz and secondly Robert Schmidt.

I read in one of the numerous books of Princess Radziwill that Duchess Alexandrine was unhappy in her marriage and quickly  separated  from her husband: she lived  in Berlin with her daughter. Any additional info and pictures on Duchess and of course her daughter are welcomed ;  ))


Here's a thread on Alexandrine's mother (with some pics of Alexandrine and her daughter Charlotte):

Some more pictures of the Albrecht family.

The "ancestor", Prince Albrecht (1809-72), they said of the same immoral reputation as his brother Prince Karl.



His son, Albrecht



Wife of Albrecht-junior, Princess Marie of Saxe-Altenburg (1854-98)

Karoline Stockhammer (1891-1952), 2nd spouse of Prince Joachim Albrecht (1876-1939), 2nd son of Albrecht-junior

in 1923



in 1932



Her photos in every on-line Archive almost always are labelled as Marie Augusta, spouse of Prince Joachim, youngest son of Wilhelm II. This mess is based on the similar title of the ladies - Prinzessin Joachim

I just saw your post...it was Countess Paula von Lehndorff who lived from 1889-1931...Her father was Count Heinrich von Lehndorff and her mother Countess Margarethe von Kanitz...she had perfect aristocratic ancestry-almost no commoners,but not nearly "equal"...her nearest almost equal ancestors were Counts zu Dohna-Schlobitten and Dohna-Lauck...she is also descendant of Eulenburg,Dönhoff,Schmettau families as well as descendant of Martin von Wallenrodt,who was Chancellor of Prussia...One interesting fact is that she is also descendant of von Rüdiger family,family of late Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow...

She married in 1916,being already pregnant with her first child, Baron or rather Freiherr Gisbert von Innhausen und Knyphausen zu Kalittken(1882-1949) and is now ancestor of some members of Rantzau family...

A daughter of Prince Albrecht of Prussia and unfortunate Princess Marianne of Netherlands.

Princess Alexandrine of Prussia ( 1 February 1842 - 26 March 1906), married in 1865 to Wilhelm Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin,2nd son of Grand Duke Paul Friedrich of Mecklenbourg-Schwerin. They had one daughter Charlotte (1868-1942), who married firstly Heinrich XVIII Prince Reuss zu Köstritz and secondly Robert Schmidt.

I read in one of the numerous books of Princess Radziwill that Duchess Alexandrine was unhappy in her marriage and quickly  separated  from her husband: she lived  in Berlin with her daughter. Any additional info and pictures on Duchess and of course her daughter are welcomed ;  ))



Interesting fact that this unremarkable Princess and Duchess tried to derail engagement of GD Vladimir Romanov and his future wife Duchess Marie of Mecklenbourg-Schwerin,niece of Alexandrine's husband.
"Adi" -  her nickname in the family-   when Vladimir meet Marie aka Miechen first time in Berlin in 1872 was very glad about their feelings to each other, but when Vladimir returned home,talked seriously to his parents about Duchess Marie and had their consent, a telegram arrived from Adi. She begged Vladimir to give up his plans of marrying Marie as her niece loved another man and couldn't be GD's wife...Poor heart-broken Vladimir rushed to Alexander II, who sent a message to Marie's father that their children's alliance was out of question.
After some time all the party learned by surprise that Adi sent that telegram by her own accord and the Mecklenbourg clan didn't know anything about that! Marie of course didn't know either and refusal of the Romanovs was a blow for her.
After that Emperor Wilhelm I gave Adi a piece of his mind (mildly speaking!) and the misunderstanding was over. Anyway only in 1874 Vladimir could engage his beloved Marie.

Obviously Adi had her own reasons to push her nose into the Romanovs affairs, they said she wanted marry Marie to some relative - Reuss (Marie's mother was a Reuss) or Rudolstadt (relative of Marie's stepmother) but Adi itself didn't explain her behavior and played it cool.

"Adi's" aunt was Queen Anna Pavlovna,spouse of Princess Mariannes brother king Willem II.
There was no love lost between this Queen and most members of the RF of the day,least of
all between Marianne and her.Marianne divorced,Marianne supported her father against the will
of her siblings and whatever they married while Anna loathed her for this too.
The streak by Adi to try and derail a marriage between Miechen and Wladimir might be seen as
an act against the family of the pain Anna was to family members of the dutch RF here.
Call it sort of "pay back time"...Wilhelm I of Prussia  might have given her a piece of her mind,but
as her mothers daughter she wasn't impressed by any of it.

Princess Agathe, she was quite pretty.




Here's the engagement of her and Prince Friedrich Wilhelm. Other people are the Ratibor family, Agathe's parents and relatives.



And here's Agathe's daughter Marianne in her wedding day with Prince Wilhelm of Hesse-Barchfeld, her husband. 1933 year.
