Princess Marianne of the Netherlands
« Reply #15 on: December 17, 2005, 09:14:00 AM »
Prince Albert jr of Prussia, Marianne`s son with his wife princess Marie of Sachsen Altenburg (I believe she was the only child of the duke of Sachsen Altenburg). They had 3 sons who were to believed as marriage candidates for queen Wilhelmina.



Princess Marie of Prussia (born Sachsen Altenburg)

After I made some research I found out that princess Marianne and prince Gustaf of Vasa (son of the deposed Swedish king Gustaf IV Adolf) were indeed engaged, in 1828, but the engagement was broken due to pressures from the first king of the Bernadotte dynasty, Karl XIV Johan. The king apparently saw the young prince as a possible threat to the throne, and didn't want him to make such a good marriage.

Prince Gustaf instead married his cousin Louise, princess of Baden, in 1832.

You are absolutely right Rebecca. I remember reading that in one of the official papers in preperation for the marriage of Marianne and Gustav Wasa, he was called prince of Sweden. Apparantly that caused the trouble with the then Swedish Bernadotte King. Marianne however seemed to have fallen in love with Gustav Wasa but despite that the engagement was broken off. He was a pretty rich guy and was worth about 10 million guilders at that time. I don`t know what that is in todays currency but I guess a lot.  

The daughter (only child) who was born from the marriage of Gustav Wasa and his niece Louise of Baden, Princess Carola Wasa, became queen of Sachsen and was befriended with Sophie, the grandduchess of Sachsen Weimar Eisenach (daughter of William ll).

Hey Marc, thanks for posting this painting. I have never seen it before. The marriage of Charlotte and the duke of Sachsen Meiningen was supposed to be one of the few real love marriage in royal circles. Princess Charlotte died young, I believe in childbirth. She received from her mother the villa Carlotta at the Como lake Italy. I have seen it once and it is a beatifull place.

Princess Marianne of the Netherlands, here with a pearl and diamond diademe and brooche, exactly matching with the ones who are owned now by Queen Margarete ll of Denmark. It is unknown where this set is now. Queen Margarete ll inhererited her set through princess Louise of the Netherlands. It is assumed that both, princess Marianne and princess Louise, were given the same set as a gift, either by King William l or by King Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia.

Thijs,as to your last but one post,the diademe of Grandduchess Alexandrine in the pic in one of the posts above,looks very much if not exactly like the Pearl diademe as worn by Princess Marianne?

And as for the portrait of the young and beautifull Marianne being in the possession of Queen Sophie,well,that's a surprise,as Queen Sophie loathed Marianne due to her lifestyle,and as she wrote to her friend Lady Malet;"Princess Marianne visited The Netherlands,but ofcourse I kept my door closed for her"....Odd isn't it?

Thijs,the pearl diadem as worn by Marianne resembles the one worn by her daughter Alexandrine above?

About the portrait being owned by Queen Sophie,amazing,as it was Sophie who detested Marianne's "lifestyle"(divorced and living with the gardener)and even refused her to receive her while in the Netherlands,as she wrote to her friend Lady Malet later;"Couldn't possibly receive the princess at my home"......

I read somewhere that the pearl diademe was inherited by the Reuss family. Would be great if it still existed?
Sophie might have had ambigious feelings towards princess Marianne. After all Marianne did what Sophie would certainly wanted to but could not or would not for lack of guts. Marianne`s own family was really hypocrite, at least too afraid too make real choices. That was already the case wih her first fiancee prince Gustav Wasa. Perhaps life would have been different for her if she wouldn`t have married her nephew Albert of Prussia. That was a nephew and cousin marriage in the third generation between the Orange and Honezollerns.

This is my favorite painting of princess Marianne. Is there somewhere a coloured version? Perhaps in Reinhartshausen?

Princess Marianne of the Netherlands




Her three Prussian children from her marriage with her nephew, prince Albert of Prussia, brother of for instance Kaiser Wilhelm l and empress Alexandra Feodorowna.
The cildren are princess Charlotte, prince Albert and princess Aexandrine




Estate Kamenz in Silezia was part of the inheritance of princess Marianne from her father. It was a vast estate and was later on inherited by her son prince Albert of Prussia who was also burried here, together with his wife princess Marie (born Sachsen Altenburg). Princess Marianne was in her days extremely wealthy, mainly from her fathers inheritance.
