Princess Johann Georg of Schönaich-Carolath and her son, Hans

Marlene A. Eilers Koenig Collection
A new addition to my collection:  Princess Johann Georg of Schönaich-Carolath and her son, Hans Georg.  The original photograph was taken  in Greiz, the capital of Reuss, as the Princess was born Princess Hermine Reuss.

Princess Hermine married Prince Johann Georg in January 1907.  Hans Georg was born ten months later.    Johann Georg died in 1920.  This postcard was certainly published before or in the early days of World War I, as Hans Georg is still a child. 

Princess Hermine and her sisters and their families often appeared on postcards published in Greiz.
