Marc, I do not know if this is the portrait I meant of Katharina Paulowna (as mentioned earlier) but it looks a lot like it. Thanks!

Thanks Svetabel, it is Katharina allright, that`s for sure but I meant that I was not sure if it is the same portrait of Katharina that used to be in Huis ten Bosch, next to the Winterhalter painting of queen Sophie. That`s why I posted the interior pics again to compare them.

Queen Pauline von Württemberg (* 4. September 1800; † 10. March 1873) . King Wilhelm l and queen Pauline  had three children:
 
Princess Katharina 1821-1898, Mother of King Wilhelm II. von Württemberg; she was married to prinz Friedrich von Württemberg (1808-1870)
 
Crownprince  Karl 1823-1891, King of  Württemberg since 1864. He was married to Olga, grandduchess of Russia (second daughter of emperor Nicholas lof Russia).
 
Princess Auguste 1826-1898, married duke Hermann of Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach (1825-1901)
 
Queen Pauline was the stepmother of queen Sophie and her sister princess Marie. Pauline and Sophie disliked eachother. Sophie accused her stepmother that she had no warm motherfeelings for her and Pauline was, I guess, jeaulous at Sophie and Marie for being their fathers eye apples (for what is was worth?). She was not loved by her husband nor her children. That made her a bitter and harsh woman. When she noticed that the marriage of queen Sophie was also a very unhappy one she remarked "now she knows what it is to be in an unhappy marriage". That was certainly not very nice to say (nor think) but it states the bitterness of Pauline and her missing of being loved. Pauline was a goodwoman I believe allthough she was ery religious and formal. This, contrary to her own mother, Henriette duchess von Wurttemberg (born Nassau Weilburg). Henriette was also religious but had charm and flair and was very popular in Wurttemberg.



Father and mother of queen Pauline were Louis Frederick Alexander (Treptow, 30 august 1756 – Kirchheim unter Teck 20 september 1817), duke of Württemberg and son of  Frederick Eugenius of Württemberg and  Frederika of Brandenburg-Schwedt.

He was married twice: his first marriage was 28 october 1784 with princess Maria Anna Czartoryska, daughter of prince Adam Casimir Czartoryski and countess Isabella Flemming. They divorced 1793 and had only one child:

Adam (1792-1847)

His second marriage was 28 january1797 with princess Henriëtte of Nassau-Weilburg, daughter of furst Karl Christiaan of Nassau-Weilburg and Carolina ofOrange-Nassau (sister of Stadtholder William V). They had five children:

Maria Dorothea (1797-1855), married Joseph of  Habsburg-Lotharingen, son of Leopold II

Amelie 1799-1848, married to duke Joseph of Sachsen-Altenburg

Pauline (1800-1873), married to King Wilhelm I of Württemberg

Elisabeth Alexandrine (1802-1864), married to prince Wilhelm of Baden

Alexander of Württemberg (1804-1885), married with countess Claudine Rhédey van Kis-Rhéde, he was the grandfather of Mary of Teck, queen of Great Britain.


Henriette of Nassau Weilburg, duchess of Wurttemberg and mother of queen Pauline of Wurttemberg and thus stepgrandmother of queen Sophie.



Daughter of duchess Henriette [glb][/glb]of Wurttemberg: Amelie 1799-1848, married to duke Joseph of Sachsen-Altenburg (aunt and uncle of queen Sophie)

Katharina Friederike Charlotte, Stuttgart 24 Aug 1821-Stuttgart 6 Dec 1898 married Stuttgart 20 Nov 1845 Friedrich Pr of Württemberg (21 Feb 1808-9 May 1870).

She was (half) sister of queen Sophie and mother of the future King Wilhelmll of Wurttemberg. She had an extremely good relationship with her son but her marriage with Friedrich of Wurttemberg was not a happy one.
