Sad. She should have stayed home with her mother-in-law Mossy, who with her other daughter-in-law Sophie (of Greece) did survive the war. Marie Alexandra's jewels were also stolen in the famous jewelry heist on Schloss Friedrichoff.

Well, Marie Alexandra loved her nursing duties and wanted to be pro-active. That was her choice. She died making a difference at least. She didn't have to worry about multiple pregnancies and young children like Sophie and Mossy was already elderly.

Yes. Marie Alexandra did not have a child. Maybe she was in capable of having one, that could be the moving force of her hospital work since her in-laws usually started a family soon after they were wedded.

Coin medallion featuring Prince Friedrich-Wilhelm of Hesse-Kassel and Princess Anna of Prussia.  It was issued at the time of their marriage.

If one was, I would very much like to see it.

There should be. It is not everyday that a prince of Hesse-Cassel marries a daughter of the Russian Tsar.

Landgraf Moritz was a very nice man who enjoyed our work as historians and genealogists!

He lived through a period of great change in the princely families. The next generation will not have the kind of tight knit relationship that was before.

Hi,

Thank you Arturo for these indepth reportings and photographs of the Hesse Cassel funeral.
As always you do as great job in explaining the variously related family members.

Sad to see King Constantine with a cane;  good to see his sister, Queen Sofia.

I'm glad to hear that Furst Moritz enjoyed Ilana's book - she will be happy about that...
