Maybe someday they'll be a book about the Edinburgh/Coburg daughters the way Ilana's new book on VMH has been expanded to include her sisters. That would be a real treat! It would also be a way to get some real info out there on Sandra, who otherwise wouldn't support a whole bio. Just an idea.  :)

Anyway, back to Irene.

Apparently the mausoleum at Hemmelmark was once broken into (I don't know when but it seems after Henry & Irene's death). Henry Jr's coffin was stolen and searched for valuables and then tossed into the sea! The police found the (embalmed) body still in the coffin--it had luckily become partially frozen in ice rather than just floating out to sea--and it was reentombed. How horrible.  :'( Apparently because of this, Sigismund's daughter Barbara, who had been adopted by Irene as heir, refused to be buried there and asked instead to be buried at sea near Hemmelmark.

We were in Hemmelmark last week. Near the mausoleum is a memorialgrave to Barbara. She is buried at sea near Helgoland.

Wonderful--thanks so much for sharing.  :)

If I remember correctly, it's Henry and Irene buried side-by-side and the single grave is Henry Jr's?

Shame Irene does not appear to have kept a journal (?) would make interesting reading, especially her visits to Russia, the Romanovs and her own family and grief...
Grief is the price we pay for love.

Henry (b.1900, died either 1903 or 1904).

He died in 1904. 

I thought it probably was but didn't have time to check and didn't want to make an error.  :P

It was reported in one newspaper (perhaps the New York Times) that he died after falling from a chair--not a serious injury but with the hemophilia.... :(

That is what happened.  He fell from a high chair, and it all went from bad to worse because of the hemophilia.
So long and thanks for all the fish

Why did Irene have the reputation for being "not the sharpest tool in the shed"?

Vicky onced stated that neither Henry or Irene ever read a newspaper.
