The Hohenzollern / Lippe Family
« on: June 20, 2009, 02:02:49 AM »
The Lippe family and the various branches are not well illustrated, at least not on the net. The Schaumburg-Lippe and Lippe-Biesterfeld branchesare better known and seem to have more published portraits. I cannot find any portraits of Leopold I Fürst zur Lippe-Detmold (1767-1802) and the Counts of Lippe-Weissenfeld are only represented by Egmont (b 1918). Does anyone know if there is any further info out there or whether portraits hang in any of the proprties?

Mediatized Noble Families / Teck
« on: October 14, 2008, 09:04:35 AM »
Does anyone have any information or pictures of Queen Mary's two paternal aunts, Claudine Pss of Teck (1836-94) and Amelie (1838-93)? The latter married Paul Graf von Hügel and all three are buried near Graz in Austria. They must have visited their family in England and may appear in group photos. I have drawn a blank!

Can anybody give me any info on Alexander Prince of Prussia (1820-96)? I believe he was an unmarried general and a great-grandson of King Friedrich Wilhelm II.

Mediatized Noble Families / LEININGEN
« on: December 30, 2007, 07:22:51 AM »
Does anybody have an image of Ernst Leopold 4th Prince of Leiningen (1830-1904)? He was a half-nephew of Queen Victoria and served in the British navy. It is quite difficult to find pictures of the Leiningen family despite the fact that they are so well connected.

The Hohenzollern / Sophie of Liegnitz(1525-1546)
« on: July 26, 2007, 12:31:02 PM »
Sophie of Liegnitz(1525-1546) , first wife of Elector Johann Georg of Brandenburg (1525-98) seems to have died shortly after the birth of her only son, who is the ancestor of all the Brandenburg Hohenzollerns. She is therefore their ancestress as well. I have searched high and low and can find very little info on her. Does anybody have any info and is there a portrait of her anywhere?

The Windsors / King George III, his Queen Charlotte and their family
« on: April 30, 2006, 05:14:38 PM »
I have never seen pictures of Queen Charlotte's parents. I Know that the palace at Neustrelitz was a casualty of WW2. Does this mean that the family portraits were destroyed? There is in the British Royal Collection a snuffbox with Charlotte and her siblings depicted on the outside. Apparently her parents are depicted on the inside. Does anyone have any pictures of her parents?

The Tudors / Elisabeth of Bohemia
« on: January 14, 2006, 05:00:56 AM »
I know she was born a Stuart in Scotland but I think this belongs with the Wittelsbach family! I came accross the following painting by Honthorst in a book printed in 1938. It was then in the palace of Herrenhausen which suffered in the war. Does anybody know if it survived or if there is a better version of the photo?



It shows Elisabeth with all her family and a portrait of her husband.

Are there any pictures of Tudors before Henry VII?
