Royal Portraits -- new additions

A group shot of the four Edinburgh sisters -  Alexandra looked very much like her mother, Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna.

Princess Elisabeth was about 2 years old when this photo was taken in 1910.  She was the 9th child of Georg, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe, and his wife Princess Marie of Saxe-Altenburg

Before the wedding: King Alfonso XIII of Spain and Princess Ena of Battenberg in Biarritz at the time of their engagement.

Princess Johann Georg of Schoenaich-Carolath and her first two children, Hans Georg (1907-1943) and Prince Georg Wilhelm (1909-1927.)  The former Princess Hermine Reuss married Prince Johann Georg in 1907.   He died in 1920.  As a relatively young widow,  Hermine caught the attention of the exiled Kaiser Wilhelm II, a widower, and she became his second wife.
