OK now I understand you.

I did some research and found they had a common ancestor in Friedrich Wilhelm, the last King of Prussia (father of Wilhelm I of Germany) He was Viktoria's great-grandfather and Margaretha's great-great grandfather so I think that makes them second cousins once removed.

Very good research, ysbel. It's fun to do that sometimes. I once did a connection between Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Grace. Geneaology is a lot of work but also a lot of fun as well.

I have recently read "Born to Rule",and I was disappointed that Princess Margaret was not included in the book.

I guess because the book "Born to Rule" only talks about the granddaughters of Queen Victoria who became Queens.

That's stupid! It should have mentioned Margareth too! She was a crown princess and two of her grandchildren are monarchs.

This is Margareth and her future husband Gustav Adolf in March 1905 on the island of Capri outside Naples, Italy. The photo was taken by Gustav Adolf's mother Victoria.

Thanks for the picture Furienna. I've never seen that one before. In a lot of the official photos, Margrethe didn't look that attractive but here she does.

What was the occasion on Capri?

Maybe they were visiting Queen Victoria on Capri, she lived there in periods due to her bad health, before she took up residence in Rome were she died in 1930.

Grandduchess is right! Victoria of Baden was abroad a lot, visiting hotter places in Europe. Even when she was our queen, she never spent the winters here in Sweden. We actually only had a queen during the summers! No wonder her marriage to king Gustav V was rocky. Her oldest son Gustav Adolf, the future king Gustav VI Adolf, had taken his fiancée Margareth of Connaught to Capri to introduce her to his mother. They had just gotten engaged. I must also add, that Victoria of Baden was a good photographer. I have a book about Capri, where 90% of the pictures were taken by her. The picture I just scanned and uploaded to my imageshack and linked to in this thread comes from that book.

Well if she was Ingrids mother, than she must have been!?!
I find those old photographs very interesting, esp. because when the children are small, it is always hard to say, if they are boys or girls .

Yes, she was the mother of Queen Ingrid of Denmark and thus the grandmother of Margethe of Denmark but also King Carl Gustav of Sweden, Anne Marie of Greece and a granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

Her last surviving son, Carl Johan just celebrated his 90th birthday last year.

What great pictures of a lovely Princess!
