Katia, thank you! What a ludicrously tiny nose - let's hope it didn't portend disappointment for poor Thyra. No wonder she had a nervous breakdown.

You are truly terrible Nanny, I can't tell you how much I laughed at this, tears are rolling down my face....You deserve to be beaten with a hairbrush!

Martyn, whatever are you implying? No roly-poly pud for you tonight, you nasty little boy! Nanny only meant that Thyra might have been disappointed that her husband wasn't handsomer.

Queen Alexandra, Thyra's sister said that Ernst August was the ugliest man she had ever seen but that he was
good hearted. He also had a very long neck. :D

Well, at least his neck was long. Er, um Jim ...  Martyn and I weren't really discussing whether the prince was handsome.

Now Nanny, come on, be gracious.  Long necks can be beautiful.....

Only take a good look at several photos of poor Ernst August and you'll see what Queen Alexandra was referring to...then again an exiled head of House was pretty darn good for a damaged princess.

As usual, Arturo states the facts succinctly.....'Damaged'  - sad but true, in 19th century values.

Vilhelm Marcher did commit suicide, after a hard talk with King Christian IX..
His death was announced( or what you call it!!) in a news paper the next day..of cource, it didnt say the reason why...

I have read that Princess Thyra, during her early married life had several mental breakdowns, and  she would be found wondering around, looking for her baby in the park at her home, Schloss Cumberland in Austria..

So a very tragic history for those involved...

I was just wondering how you pronounce Thyra's name. I've always pronounced it "Thigh-ra" but on the Royal Family dvd, they pronounce it "Teer-ra!"  :)

Tear Ra is correct.  In German and in Danish, the Th is hard, not soft.   Thuringia is actually Turinga

Thanks Marlene. It was strange finding out I've been pronouncing it wrong all this time!

It was a bit odd on the dvd, they kept switching from "Dalmar" to "Dagmar" when mentioning Marie Feodorovna.
