Two new postcards

This image is from 1902, I think (trying to read the postal date on the back) The photo was taken at the home of the Prince and Princess of Lippe in Rothenfels.  I think the Princess Amalie sitting on the left is Marie Amalie Sophie Wilhelmine Christine Caroline Eulalie (1821-1899) who married Prince Viktor of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst, Duke of Ratibor and Prince of Corvey.  She was the daughter of Karl Egon II Prince of Fürstenberg and Princess Amalie of Baden, who was a first cousin of Grand Duke Friedrich I of Baden (1826-1907)  He was married to Princess Luise of Prussia 1838-1923).  The woman on the right in front is the Princess of Lippe,  Princess Sophie of Baden (1834-1904), who married Woldemar, Prince of Lippe-Detmold.  Sophie was a first cousin of Grand Duke Friedrich

The 8th and 9th children of HSH George, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe and Princess Marie of Saxe-Altenburg.  Friedrich Christian (1906-1983) was married three times.  Elisabeth (1908-1933) was married twice, first to Benvento Hauptmann and then Baron Johann Herring von Frankensdorff. She died at the age of 33 on February 25, 1933, 20 days after the birth of her second child, Hans-Georg.

I am amazed at how you manage to understand the intricacies of the minor German houses and their alphabet soup of names and titles!
