Curiously for me is that the majority of German Royals were Lutheran/Protestant, correct? Then, there would naturally a greater likelihood for more Protestants to have been in line with Hitler, just based on odds. What is more interesting is that Hitler's popluar support was far greater in southern Germany (Catholic), particularly Bavaria, than in the north (Protestant). Seems the royals were not very much in line with their subjects.


The royals no longer had subjects in 1933.

Art--according to many stories that come out in Jewish periodicals, etc...they still don't regard Europe as all that friendly towards Jews.



I second that. In Sweden, where I live, there were few antisemitic outbreaks prior of WWII, but on the other hand, the stereotypic view of the Jewish people was very tenatious. Nowadays antisemitism is growing in Sweden as in most parts of Europe. In Sweden the tactic to deal with it often is to sweep the problem under the carpet and pretend that it doesn't exist.

My interest in royals has always been more or less purely genealogical, but I'm learning more and more about the persons behind the names and titles, and quite frankly it utterly disgusts me that so many of them were Nazis or had Nazi friendly views, and that some of them even continued being Nazis after the war.

The eldest daughter was by the Duke's first wife, Elisabeth of Prussia (sister of Duchess Louise of Connaught)  and the latter children by his 2nd wife, Elizabeth of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

Does somebody have a picture of Ida von Anhalt-Bernburg-Schaumburg-Hoym (1804-1828), duchess of Oldenburg, second wife of Friedrich-August I, grand-duc of Oldenburg?

Her sister, Adelaide, was the first wife of Friedrich-August, and mother of Amalia, Queen of Greece (wife of Otto I).

Ida was the grand-grand-mother of Sophie-Charlotte v. Oldenburg, wife of Eitel-Friedrich of Prussia, son of the Kaiser William II...

I can't find even a picture of her, so if someone could help me... Thank you!

I know, I know...!
You can find pictures of her sister Adelaide, Friedrich-August's first wife.
You can find pictures of Cecilia of Sweden, Friedrich-August's third wife.

And you can't find a picture of Ida, the only one who gave birth to the heir, Peter II, grand-duc of Oldenburg... I don't understand that! Ok, she did very young, but...?

Me too...why is so hard to find a picture of a mother of the next heir and grand-duke? Strange...

Easy to find by others? or by yourself???
You are doing a request and then making remarks when the picture does not come right away.

I just say that I wonder why a portrait of this princess is so hard to find, by me or by anyone ! And I see that beladona observed that, too.

What's your problem, darling? You didn't take your sedative, this evening?

I've seen a sketch of her in the David McIntosch book on the Oldenburgs. Great book.

Really?!!!! Well, I will have to buy this book, then! Thank you so much Svetabel for this information! And do you know where on the net I could buy this book? It's a very recent book, isn't it?
