Victoria and Daniel at the Polar Music Prize 2010

(Note: Can one of the mods change this thread title to 'Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel' or should I make a new thread for Daniel all by his lonesome?)

I wish nothing but the best for these two!  :) They seem so happy.

Isabella just turned three and Christian will be four in October. My, how quickly they grow up!

I don't think it was strange--the age difference--for George to have feelings for Missy but they turned out in the end not to be very strong. He certainly wasn't broken-hearted by the refusal of what was apparently a tentative offer from Bertie to Affie and Marie. I think Vicky and Fritz is an excellent example--wasn't Vicky only 12 or 13 when she and Fritz were first introduced--which was already planned for a potential marriage? She was only about 15 when she was engaged to him and he was a good deal older. In addition, given the emotional immaturity of the Wales clan, George and Missy probably seemed very close in age.  ;)

Vicky was engaged to Frtiz at 14; they first met when she was ten.

Thanks guys. Vicky and Fritz's love story was such a big thing; are there any films that focus on their story alone, like Victoria & Albert?

Yeah,i actually read somewhere that Vicky actually made a sculpture of little Siggy, and she had it kept in a room in a cradle.
Was this true?

That's also in Hannah Pakula's book. I think it is true, yes.

Imperial Succession and the Throne / Re: List of the Line of Succession

Thank you again Macedonsky,

Is this correct?

•      Her Imperial Highness Helena Vladimirovna and her issue, (since she married equal and orthodox) Here it should comes HRH Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia but he renounce to his orthodox faith and married a catholic.

•      Regarding Their Imperial Highness Grand Duchesses Vera Constantinova, Maria Alexandrovna, Maria and Kira Kirillovna. They married equal but they renounce to their orthodox faith after they married to a man of another faith therefore they lost their corresponding rights to the Russian throne so their issue too.

•      Regarding Princess Catherine Ioannova she married a noble person and not a royal or an equal house and she also renounce her orthodox fait and married to a catholic noble man. She also loses her rights to the Russian throne.

Therefore I understand the corresponding list to the Russian Throne regarding Maria Vladirowna it should look like this;

1st George Mihailovich and his future issue are in the line.

2nd Olga Constantinovna and her issue, ( since she married equal and orthodox ) Here is come from HM King Constantine, he made a orthodox and equal marriage, but his heir Prince Paul married a Commoner, therefore regarding HM King Constantine will be followed by his other sons and daughters if they respect the succession law.

Please feel free to correct me.

Crown Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia did not renounce his Orthodox faith. He did marry a Catholic the first time around, but by your logic someone who marries outside of the faith ceases to be Orthodox?

I thought the only country that barred Catholics from the line of succession was England?

Hesse children - Victoria, Ella, Alix, and Ernst.

Actually, I think it's Victoria, Ernie, Alix and May. Irene and Victoria aren't in the photo.

So true.  I believe it was when Sigismund died that Queen Victoria told Vicky to, basically, get over it and be glad she hadn't lost a husband.

That's very true. She did. QV was very double-standard with her children on the expectations of marriage and children, so when Vicky lost Sigi and Waldy, Queen Victoria was all but sympathetic towards her. I read about this in Hannah Pakula's biography of Vicky; reading QV's letters to Vicky about her dead boys, where she tells her daughter to basically move on and get over it, made my stomach turn. That isn't something you tell your grieving child.

I think for your first try you were VERY successful! Photoshop is great once you get used to it. Just try it again and you´ll see things wil get better and better every time!

Victoria of Hesse

Nicely done, but I think this is Victoria of Wales, rather than Hesse.

You're correct Ally. That is indeed Victoria of Wales, rather than Hesse, although they do look similar.

Alexandra Feodorovna / Re: Questions about Alexandra's Name?
« on: September 02, 2008, 09:29:10 PM »
The empress' name was actually Victoria Alix Helena Louise Beatrice. You are correct about the names being for her mother and 4 aunts, although many people switch them around (I did at first). Alix was actually her second name, as well as what she went by. When she converted to the Russian Orthodox Church in 1894, her name became Aleksandra Feodorovna, not because Aleksandra was in fact close to Alix, but at the request of her husband Czar Nicholas II, who wished their names to resemble the first Nicholas and Aleksandra---his great-grandparents Nicholas I and Charlotte of Prussia, who was also Aleksandra Feodorovna.
