Hello Zukunftsseele,

The girl standing right is to mu opinion Klothilde zu Ysenburg - Büdingen. She lived from 1852 to 1922.
She was the daughter of Karl Friedrich zu Ysenburg - Büdingen in Meerholz and Grafin Johanne zu Castell - Castell.
The seated girl on the left could be her sister Helene (1848-1920).

I have two photographs of the girls which I will scan shortly to compare.

Greetings,

Jan

Could this girl painted by Kaulbach(1917) be Princess Marie of Prussia instead of Princess Maire von Hohenzollern?

There was one Princess von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen(Marie Antoinette) who could suit the age of a sitter,but she was blond and doesn't look very much like the girl in the portrait!

Actually I don't see any resemblance to any Hohenzollern Princess of that time...

You are right,me neither,but if we consider painters freedom could it be possibly be someone?Don't know why she is labeled Princess Marie Hohenzollern...it must be some royal connection!

The style of the dress is 1867-1869 years...well...her profile looks familiar  but not that familiar to  be some known to us a Mecklenburg-Schwerin or Strelitz Duchess or GDss.

I'd say she resembles GDss Adelheid of Luxemburg (nee Prss Anhalt-Dessau).

Does anyone know who this guy is? He is supposed to be Emanuel of Salm-Salm but I have my doubts....

Portrait of,said to be,Princess von Anhalt:

http://www.hermann-historica.de/auktion/hhm65.pl?f=NR_LOT&c=3709&t=temartic_M_GB&db=kat65_m.txt

but which one...to me the portrait looks similar to the one of Alexandra Iosifovna,but the features look like Nassau,but I am not sure...and the portrait provenance is of Grand Duchess Vera of Russia!

What do you think?

Marc, that's a  very flattering portrait of Princess Bathildis of Anhalt, spouse of Prince Schaumburg-Lippe and so mother-in-law of GDss Vera's daughters. In some book I've seen another version of the portrait, probably an original, as that one from the auction is a copy.

I was wondering if this could be Charlotte of Prussia sitting with Gustav V in the Stockholm Royal Box during the 1912 Olympics? She was cousin to his wife, Victoria, and I'm thinking it could be her. She has that same white-powdered, rather sunken eyed look that Charlotte around this period had.
