This poor little darling's untimely death was yet another blow for Empress Alexandra Feodorovna who, out of care and concern for her brother and niece in the wake of the marriage breakup, invited to join her own family on holiday in Poland.  

Inevitably, with her propensity to blame herself for things going wrong, the Empress must have wrestled with a mixture of emotions.   The Emperor describes the family's heartbreak in the letter to Kaiser Wilhelm -

'It is impossible for me to pass over the sudden and tragic death of that sweet little sunshine, without sending you just a word to tell you how deeply I feel for you all in this sad affair.   It is really very difficult to realize the facts, that darling child is no more among us!   How joyous and merry she was that day at Wolfsgarten, when I was there, so full of life and fun and health, and to think that one shall never see her again in this world!   What a terrible heartrending blow for poor Ernie, who doted and adored that little enchantress!  May heaven give him power to bear up under such a blow!'

I love that photo--it's from Childhood at Court, right? Louise, Louis and George Battenberg. Louise doesn't look too thrilled at being with the little ones.  ;)

I always thought Maurice might've been anglicized from Moritz as a tip of the hat to Wales (ala Ena for Scotland, Leopold had Duncan, Patricia for Ireland etc...). It seems to be that they tried to get some of the names of other parts of the Empire in there. (I love GV& QM putting the names of George (patron saint of England) Andew (PS of Scotland) Patrick (PS of Ireland) and David (PS of Wales) in the name of the future Edward VIII.

I have a companion postcard of the image of Elisabeth with the hat I'll have to find. I always thought it was one of the prettiest series of her. You can definitely see the resemblance to her mother in it.

I have seen a few pics of Elisabeth with her mother, but it seems like there were more taken of her with her father. I know she was upset bout her parents divorce. And from what I read Ernie adored her and she was a "daddy's girl"

She certainly was! There was a whole series taken with her father (with her in a very pretty white dress). I can think of about 3 with her mother. There's one I've seen of all 3 together.

Well his fathers name was Heinrich Moritz (Henry Maurice), so that kinda makes it make more sense.


Dear PrinceEddy1864,

I was just being silly, because i rarly hear that name "Maurice" alot.

Oh, ok. Yes it was definatly not common among the Royal Families.

Hey Maria we have the same last name.

The picture I am reffering to was posted at the bottom of the previous page of this thread.

Do you mean "Prince Eddy and the Homosexual Underworld", if so believe it or not I have not. I was only recently able to get an affordable copy. I just got it off ebay for like 20.00$ (a deal I think). It is on it''s way to me as we speak (in the mail). I am very excited to get it.

See--this is why we sometimes need to quote pictures.  :) I actually thought you meant the one I mentioned of the 3 together.  ::)

I think I need to get that Mountbatten book--are the lots of photos of his early years? The one of the cousins that is on the other page is also in the van der Kiste book but it's not full page. That's a really good book though.

The Prince Eddy book is a very worthy one and not at all sleazy (despite the title) for those who might wonder. Aronson was a great biographer--too bad he's not with us anymore.  :( I just obtained his Princess Alice of Athlone biography and look forward to reading it.

Oh I love the Mountbatten book. I got it at a used bookstore for under 5$. It has tons of pics from his childhood and youth. See Dickie is a favorite of mine so it was nice for me to have. It has pics of him with his Russian and Prussian cousins, aunts, uncle, brother, sisters and parents. It has many GREAT picks of he and Edwina (a distant relative of mine ;D BRAG) and David (EVIII), although if I remeber correctly you are not a big fan of EVIII. I love it.

Thanks for the tip! I'll look around for it. How interesting that you're related to Edwina--you know you'll have to offer more than a tease next time.  ;) I don't know if you noticed, but it's an odd little thing about the Forum. I'm assuming you typed that you're a fan of Earl Mountbatten but you used his nickname. The filter won't allow that word (I found this out when I typed a post about him that mention his name repeatedly). It spells it out as thyngie instead.  ::) We have to type Louis, Earl Mountbatten or D I C K I E--unless we all just want to nickname him 'thyngie'.  ;)
