Hohenzollerns & Romanovs--relationship
« on: March 21, 2005, 01:12:16 PM »
I would like to know how are the Hohenzollern family realated to the Romanov? I believe maybe is through the German (Hesse) side. But who's the person that conects them? Can anyone help?

Frederick William of Prussia (married to the famous Queen Louise)--Charlotte (Alexandra Feodorovna) m. Nicholas I of Russia--Alexander II--Alexander III--Nicholas II--OTMAA

Frederick William of Prussia (married to the famous Queen Louise)--Charlotte (Alexandra Feodorovna) m. Nicholas I of Russia--Alexander II--Marie m. Prince Alfred--Ducky m. Kyril--Kyra (m. Louis Ferdinand of Prussia)

Frederick William of Prussia (married to the famous Queen Louise)--Charlotte (Alexandra Feodorovna) m. Nicholas I of Russia--Alexander II--GD Vladimir--Kyril m. Ducky--Kyra (m. Louis Ferdinand of Prussia)

FW & Queen Louse--Wilhelm I of Germany--Frederick III m. Princess Victoria of Great Britain--Kaiser Wilhelm II--Crown Prince Wilhelm--descendants
including Louis Ferdinand

Frederick William III m. Queen Louise--Alexandrine m. Paul of Mecklenberg-Schwerin-- FRIEDRICH FRANZ II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin -- FRIEDRICH FRANZ III m. Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia

Anastasia Mikhailovna—Cecile—Louis Ferdinand m. Kyra
So there would’ve been Russian blood on the throne of Germany if not for the Revolution.

Other less distinct links included GDss Marie Alexandrovna being the aunt by marriage to Kaiser Wilhelm (Alfred & Vicky being siblings) and sister in law to Louise of Prussia (Duchess of Connaught).

As for the Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen line that was connected through the marriage of Ferdinand of Romania (his father being a H-S) marrying GDss Marie Alexandrovna's daughter Marie 'Missy'.

Also Kaiser Wilhelm I married Augusta of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, a granddaughter of Tsar Paul I of Russia (source: The Grand Duchesses, page 32)

Sophie of Prussia was married to Constantine of Greece, a grandson of Grand Duke Mikhail Nikolaievich (source The Grand Duchesses)

Friedrich Franz III of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, a grandson  of Alexandrine of Prussia, was married to Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia - while their youngest daughter, Cecilie, married the Crown Prince of Prussia and this couple's second son, Louis Ferdinand, married Grand Duchess Kira Kirillovna of Russia. (Source: The Grand Duchesses, page 84)

Not to mention the current Pretender's (Kyra's niece Maria) heir, Grand Duke George is by birth a Hohenzollern (his father being a Prussian prince) as well as a Romanov.

Well, look at Tsar Peter III (husband of Catherine the Great). From the time of his birth, he could've been the King of Sweden, through his father, Duke of Hosltein (his father also) or Emperor of Russia, through is mother, Anna Petrovna. Thus, he became Tsar of Russia because he was not accepted as King of Sweden, but I'm not sure about Duke of Holstein.

Would anyone have any pictures of Friedrich Franz III of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and GD Anastasia Mikhailovna and Cecilie?

In addition - the princes von Brauschweig, Georg and Ernst... or would it be more appropriate to ask that one in the Mecklenburg-Schwerin thread?

Thank you

They're often referred to as cousins, but was this their closest relationship?

Frederick William III of Prussia - Princess Charlotte of Prussia (Empress Alexandra Feodorovna) - Alexander II of Russia - Alexander III - Nicholas II

Frederick William III of Prussia - Wilhelm I of Germany - Frederick III of Germany - Wilhelm II of Germany

Oooh, and what about this?

Paul I of Russia -  Grand Duchess Maria Paulovna, Grand Duchess of Weimar - Princess Augusta of Weimar - Frederick III of Germany - Wilhelm II of Germany

Paul I of Russia - Nicholas I of Russia - Alexander II of Russia - Alexander III of Russia - Nicholas II of Russia

Were they related in any other ways?

I think there is also a common Hesse descent, but I don't have it within reach....

Maybe someone else has it....
