Wilhelm's future bride is Augusta Viktoria, not Karoline

March 16, 1880

The New York Times reports the following dispatch from Berlin: "There seems to be little reason to question the truth of the statement that Prince William, eldest son of the Crown Prince, will soon be betrothed. The lady is Princess Auguste Victoria, eldest daughter of the late Prince Frederick of Schleswig-Holsten-Sonderburg-Augustenburg, and not Princess Caroline Mathilde of Schleswig-Holstein, as previously reported."
