I agree with you Marie. There is another pic from the same sitting in Paoli's bio of Clémentine.

Are there also pics of Clotilde in Paoli's biography? If so, I would love to see them.

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

There are 3 or 4. I will send them to you as soon as I have scanned them.

There are so many nice photos of Clémentine and her children, but you have to search a long time to find them.

Here are some pics of Amélie and Clotilde:

Clémentine and her daughters - I wish I could have a better version

MarieCharlotte, your photos are just wonderful as always. Thanks for sharing the photos of Amalie and Clothilde.

AMALIE

In the first one I have seen her identified as Clotilde, but I believe it is Amalie.

AMALIE et CLOTILDE


AUGUST


I think Clemetine was one of the children who most resembled her father. This explains Augusts likeness to King Louis-Philippe.

Does somebody have any photos of Pedro, son of Auguste and Leopoldina of Bragança ?

Due to the fact that Crown-Princess Isabel of Brazil stayed so many years without descendance, his grand-father Emperor D.Pedro II thought of making him his heir.

Later, the wheels of fortune changed for poor Pedro - her aunt finally started producing babies and he became mad :-(
Not that one thing led to the other :-)

Yes, it's Amélie. There is a picture of Clotilde wearing the same dress, but she doesn't look as shy as her little sister on it. I have also a picture from the same sitting showing the sisters together.

In most of the pictures which were taken during Amélie and Clotilde's childhood, they wear the same dresses. Maybe that was cheaper ... :p

I had posted a few in the Saxe-Coburg-Braganza thread, over on the Iberian Families board, a few days ago.


In this well published group shot, he is seated far right, and his brother August Leopold is standing left behind little cousin Pedro Alcantara.

a la Lenchen and Louise of England.

Unfortunately this can make identification of sisters difficult for even the most seasoned Royal enthusiasts.

I am not sure it was a question of money. It may just have been the custom during the XIXth century. Just look at pictures of Queen Victoria's daughters or inumerable granddaughters, sisters were dressed alike.

What was the real  reason of Pedro's madness?

Yes, I would say it was a custom . I think it was not a matter of money. Their father was a Saxe Coburg Kohary, a very rich Prince.

AMALIE et CLOTILDE


Another pic from the same sitting, with princesses Helena & Louise of Great Britain :

I suppose these pictures must have been taken during a Coburg trip to England.
