Ilana did a good job on that book. Too bad it is not about his family. Prince Moritz wasn't happy about the book on his family...

I only know that the portrait is of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia,painted by Prince Heinrich von Hessen in 1959,often mistaken as a portrait of Princess Elisabeth von Hessen(Kassel),sister of Heinrich.

Not at all. This italian lady looks more like Rupprecht of Bavaria and Antonia of Luxembourg children.

See Arturo s link, there is an actual image of the real Elisabeth and in the link i posted, there are an image of the fake Pss with the same age of the real countess of Oppersdorf.

In case you dont want to look up for that image, here is it and its labeled

"Elisabetta d'Assia in eta' matura,in veste di caposala ospedaliera"

She looked beautiful in that dress. I read the Empress Frederick helped arranged her dress and trousseau.

Not all the time. Alexandra of Denmark's dress was given by her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria who insisted on Honiton lace than the Brussels lace king Leopold I wanted to give.

Obviously Empress Frederick, who was an implacable enemy of the 'fringe', wasn't able to exert enough influence to talk her out of that on her wedding day. :) I think it really made poor Margaret look rather frumpy on her wedding day. The dress was a beautiful, if overdone by today's standards, Victorian concoction but her hair looks rather blowsy.

Yes, mothers traditionally helped with the dress (they probably had more influence then than today) and definitely with the trousseau since it would contain 'grownup' outfits and unmentionables. In the case of Princess Alexandra, her mother would've had sway if not for the fact that she was marrying the heir to the British throne and Queen Victoria's wishes (as per usual!) took precedence over  a mere 'Princess mother'.
