Young Grand Duchess Caroline is dead
January 17, 1905
Grand Duchess Caroline of Saxe-Weimar died this morning "from inflammation of the lungs supervening upon influenza." She was 21-years-old. The former princess of Reuss married Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst of Saxe-Weimar in April 1903, but the marriage was fraught with tension. At one point, the Grand Duchess fled the marital home, but was persuaded to return.
The couple had no children.
