Four generations






The Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Sweden were also present in Karlsruhe in May 1911. These two photos show the Dowager Grand Duchess of Baden with her daughter, Queen Victoria of Sweden, her grandson, Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf and his wife, Margaret, and her three great-grandchildren, Gustaf Adolf, Sigvard and Ingrid.

Louise was born in 1838, the younger of two children of Wilhelm I and Augusta of Germany. Her older brother, Friedrich, who died in 1888, was married to Princess Victoria of Great Britain, whose brother, Arthur, was the father of Princess Margaret.

Louise married Grand Duke Friedrich in 1856. She died in 1923.
