 yeah but her figure was not like ellas and alixs, she was a lit bit  like victoria, a lit bit stronger. but where she was older than she was thin.

im sure that irene and alix has fight sometimes, cause they has share a room like ella and vicky. But i think  irene has given way while she a fight with alix.  or ??

do you mean that Irene was a busybody or Alix.


Irene and Alix was closer to each other becuase of their sons.

Was Louis (father of VEIA: vicky, Ella, irene and alix.) agreed  with the Marrige of his daugthers ? i knew that Louis didnt wanted that victoria marry Louis of battenberg,.
was he aggred with the marrige of Irene and Henry ? im sure he has love his daugther.

Alicky was the stubborn one and Irene the busybody...

I don't think Ludwig IV of Hesse was against his daughter marring Louis of Battenberg. They are cousins anyway and he knew the family well.

 why was Irene Busybody... ??? ist confused me.

but here in wikipedia of victoriaof hesse stand:

"Victoria married Prince Louis on 30 April 1884 at Darmstadt. Her father did not approve of the match; in his view Prince Louis had little money, and would deprive him of his daughter's company, as the couple would naturally live abroad in Britain. However, Victoria was of an independent mind and took little notice of her father's displeasure"

but that thaht he knew the family well is right.

Wikipedia is not a good source for information.  Anyone can write whatever they want to a Wikipedia entry.  There are several good books -such as The Mountbattens by Richard Hough - about the family.

I write a Wikipedia entry about you and make up everything.  This is not to say that there may be some good entries written by actual scholars ...but as an academic librarian, I can tell you - AVOID IT ... and start reading some books ...

True. Although even serious books now list Wikipedia as sources...

Irene did butt herself into situations that she was not needed. According to Maria Paulovna (the younger), when she had second thoughts about Wilhelm of Sweden and wished to tell "Aunt Ella" about it. But Irene told her to shelve it as the news would kill Ella (if Serge's death did not kill Ella, I doubt pretty much that piece of news would). It was not Irene's place to advice Maria on anything...Later when Maria told Ella about that, she was surprised that Ella did not know about the incident and told her that it would have been alright. Ella most likely remember QV and Augusta's hope of her either marry Willy or Fritz of Baden. She chose Serge instead...
