I agree, that's a great topic and you have shown wonderful pics. Thanks a lot.  ;D

I'd like to learn more about Princess Clémentine d'Orléans. Where did she live? What did she do?
I read that she took care of her three grandsons Siegfried, Christoph and Luitpold after their parents (Clémentine's daughter Amalie and Max Emanuel in Bavaria) had died in 1893/94. Do you have any information on that?

And I read in the book written by Louise of Tuscany, Crown-Princess of Saxony, that Clémentine could hardy hear anything. That's why they called her "Tante Kaffeemühle" (I don't know how to translate that).

Help is welcome.

Best wishes

Didn't I post a bio on her?

"Aunt Coffee-mill", but what has that to do with deafness? Maybe she talked very loudly to make up for it.  :-/

Next questions ...  ;)

Princess Louise d'Orléans (1812-1850), wife of Leopold of Belgium, and her sister Princess Marie d'Orléans (1813-1839), Duchess of Württemberg, died quite young.
First I thought Marie died after childbirth. But there are six months between the birth of her son and her death. And what about Louise? Was she ill?
