Marlene A. Eilers Koenig collection

Princess Leopoldine Wilhelmine Amalie Pauline Maximiliane of Baden (February 22, 1837-December 23, 1903) was the fourth and youngest daughter of Prince Wilhelm of Baden and Duchess Elisabeth of Württemberg.  She married on September 24, 1862 to  Prince Hermann zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1832-1913), the second son of Ernst I, 4th Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and his wife, Princess Feodora of Leiningen, older half-sister of Queen Victoria.  He succeeded his father in 1860 after his elder brother, Carl, ceded his rights to him.

Leopoldine and Hermann had three children: Ernst II (1863-1950) who married Princess Alexandra of Edinburgh, Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha; Elise (1864-1929) who married Heinrich XXVII, Prince Reuss Younger Line; and Feodore (1866-1932), the wife of Emich, 5th Prince of Leiningen.
