Thank you CharlotteSometimes for the info.  I always wondered why I never saw a woman with this family.  I assumed that perhaps she died of a health problem.

I would love to post the postcard that I mentioned here.  But I am having trouble figuring out how to link the photo from Photobucket to this forum.  I understand that I need to change the "IMG" to "img" but I can not seem to do it on Photobucket.  Whenever I click on the address, I get: "copied to Clipboard".  What is "Clipboard"?  I can not find the help I need on the Photobucket website.  I have checked out my problem on their "Help" section but it does not mention a "Clipboard".  Can you help me?  Thanks.

One of the sons of Duke Friedrich and duchess Charlotte

Duke JOSEPH Georg Friedrich Ernst Karl 1789-1868 married 1817 Amalie Dss of Württemberg 1799-1848
 
Children
 
Alexandrine Marie Wilhelmine Katharine Charlotte Therese Henriette Luise Pauline Elisabeth Friederike Georgine 1818-1907 married 1843 King Georg V of Hannover 1819-1878
 
Pauline Friederike Henriette Auguste  
1819-1825
 
Henriette Friederike Therese Elisabeth  
1823-1915  
 
Elisabeth Pauline Alexandrine  
1826-1896 married 1852 Peter II, Grand Duke of Oldenburg 1827-1900
 
Alexandra Friederike Henriette Pauline Marianne Elisabeth 1830-1911 married 1848 Constantine, Grand Duke of Russia 1827-1892
 
Luise  
1832-1833

Here a painting of his family I have posted before: duke Joseph, duchess Amalie and their daughters Elisabeth (grandduchess of Oldenburg) Therese (not married) and Marie (queen of Hannover) all looking at another painting possibly their sister Alexandra (grandduchess Alexandra Iosifowna of Russia).
  


I am just back from a trip to Germany. I visited several locations (Halle, Leipzig, Dresden and Altenburg). I really enjoyed Altenburg. The schloss is a museum and the people who work there are so kind and helpfull. I made some great photo's of portraits. I will put them here in short time.

For instance: we got an explanation of this painting by our tour guide (an pensioned woman professor in history and native Altenburg citizen). She knew so much about the Altenburg family and the history of the "Wettiners". But for now the portraits: the 2 princesses on the right are standing as we got explained because they were unmarried (they are Elisabeth, later grandduchess of Oldenburg and on the very right princess Therese). Onlu married princesses could be painted sitiing she told us. Also they both wear shawls (is not the right word am afraid) around there waistes (with a rosa design) to let know that they were still virgins. Also the tour guide told us that princessTherese never married because she took care of her mother (at the time the painting was made in 1848 princess Amalia was already very sick and one year later she died) and later on Therese took care of her father. She was said to be the most prettiest of the four daughters and Napoleon lll wanted to marry her but she refused because she wanted to stay unmarried and she lived the rest of her live in the Schloss of Altenburg.
I just wanted to share this with you because I always wondered why Therese never married and there was so little known of her live and it seemed that nobody could provide any information about her at all.

Here's a photo of 2 Altenburg Princesses, the images of whom I've been searching. Above in my previous posts - their "formal" poses from a Royal gathering.

Princesses Olga and Marie, daughters of Prince Albert and Princess Marie of Prussia, in Russia in about 1904-1905 year, with their Russian friends:



Olga is first from the left, Marie  is third from the left seen only her face in background.

I am searching for any extra info and pictures on

Princess  Margarete (1867-1882) of Saxe-Altenburg,3d daughter of Prince Moritz and sister of GDss Elizaveta Mavrikievna (Mavra) of Russia.



There is a photo of Princess Margarete with her sisters and mother in the cover of the recent issue of the Royalty Digest Quaterly  .
The Princess definitely had serious problems with her health, she looks ill and as if half-blind.

There is no  a link HERE to  Margarethe's photo. No one ever posted it here.

No. You mix up her with Olga and Marie of Saxe-Altenburg.
