That is so funny. I did not even notice. I got a good laugh about that. From now on I will just say Louis.

I am related to Edwina through our common ancestor, the great British Statesman Anthony Ashley-Cooper. As well as being a Royal enthusiast I am also a genealogist.

Elisa I'll see if I can get that book thru the Inter Library Loan! And the Mountbatten one too!

Great Angie! I wish you luck :) By the way, i forgot to mention that the photo of all three may be found in "The Romanovs, Love Power and Tragedy". If you like of course, i can always post it here. I think it is the only one i have seen with all of them together, except perhaps the large group photo taken at i think Illinskoe, which includes Ducky holding her baby, etc.

Elisa I love that book! That is one I had to buy!

Here is one of Ducky and Elisabeth, who was the spitting image of her mother.

Thomas_A. - I thought you would enjoy the postcard!  :D Thank you so very much for summarizing the lovely poem, I really appreciate it! :)  It's so lovely to know about the pendant being from her "Aunty Alix".  

Many, many thanks!!
-Val :)

Well, I've probably totally muddled this as it is, as Thomas says, a poem and German isn't my first language so that's a double-handicap. Nevertheless, I think I got part of it, maybe enough to give a sense of it at least and perhaps someone else could do a better job? There are just words that I can't decipher due to not understanding the grammar (difficult even in non-poem form) or dialect/colloquialisms. Anyway:

Memory
A lock stands far off in machtigen  Waldersraumen, from the noise of the world;
Between floral (?) gardens and shady trees it is appropriately peaceful and quiet under blue sky.
The  smell and roses and birds and Voglein twitter Spring songs.
The Air blows quietly and on green lawn with  shrubs and hedges plays carelessly, cheerfully and in glad, hiding places - a Duke with his beloved child.
They hurry and running up and down, stop themselves and leave themselves again;
They jauchzen and jubelin, call them and sing, embracing kiss-end themselves when frohlichen jumping.
the autumn uber country came and Schloss pulled, it streunte yellow Blatter all around.
The merry Sanger was is enough already flown away, and also in the garden ward it lonely, quietly and empty. -
there the dull tone of  the country of the bell hammer and awakens in the whole people pain and misery.
By forest and corridors steicht herbstlich the wind, and under painful crying and complaining a small coffin is carried quietly to the Gruft. Drinn ' lieght the Duke’s  holdseliges child. - humans pray:
O! Gentleman and master, can you give our Duke’s daughter more time?
They ask and cry in the hopeless struggle, the Duke want for pain nearly the heart to shatter.
The child sleeps the eternal sleep of the fair one, its innocent heart she went to everlasting rest' and remained protected serious ensuring and fencing. - one bedecks the grave with flowers.
Went there from this cold ground, into light Hoh'n a new become deeply felt. - -
nevertheless in the evening, if those aufgegaugen star are, if to ground themselves dark shade bend, see one at the grave a picture so intimately own -
there the Duke stands - he speaks with his child. And on the grave fall'n its he puts white Flieder to tranen down and to the roses. -
by withered Blatter quiet blowing it ziecht raunt and rushing ELT - flustert: ' good-bye! "-

Elisabeth's resting place at the Rosenhöhe in Darmstadt is quite a moving sight!

Poor little thing. Her father loved her so much.

That is one of my favorite images of her--the dress/coat, gloves and hat--she just looks so sweet and lovely. You can see the resemblance to Ducky there.

To the dear memory of little Elisabeth, Prinzeßchen von Hessen und bei Rhein born. 11.3.1895*



11 March? She was a little "pisces", like me ! ;D (I was born on 13,  and ... I just realized: we have the same name : Elisabeth..)

*...may she rests in peace...*

She resembles her mother, but I think she would have grown to a much more attractive woman than she.

Maybe because she wouldn't have worn such a sulky, 'me against the world' expression ala Ducky.

If I remember correctly, in finishing The Mountbattens by Richard Hough, it indicated that Johanna and Elisabeth were both buried in the Rosenhohe.  Is this correct, and if so, are they any pcitures of the children's graves?  Thanks!
