The Six Princesses of Luxembourg

Hello,

I'm new to this board (wonderful place, don't know why I didn't find it earlier&#33 and I had a question about the sisters of Grand Duchess Charlotte. I've noticed that several of them died quite young. Does anyone know the causes? I believe one of them was quite badly treated during the war.

Thanks!

I read that Princess Sophie (1902-1941) was killed in a bus-accident .

Princess Antonia (1899-1954) was married to Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria (1869-1955). She and her children were arrested by the Nazis in July of 1944. Antonia was later found in a hospital near Buchenwald. I heard that she never recovered physically or mentally from the ill treatment she received from the Nazis. I am not sure how she died.

I will try to explain it to you. Grand Duchess Charlotte was the Grandmother of the present Grand Duke Henri of Luxemburg. She ruled as Grand Duchess until 1969, when she abdicated in favor of her son, Jean. Grand Duke Jean ruled until he abdicated on Oct. 7, 2001 in favor of his son, Henri.

The people I mentioned in my prior posts are the sisters of Grand Duchess Charlotte. This thread was started because someone wanted to know why Charlotte's sisters died young.

Maire-Adelaidine - succeded her father 1912 , durning WWI she had a good relationship with the Germans that occupied Luxembourg. Following WWI political pressure forced her to abdicate and she became a nun. Never married and died in 1924.

Charlotte- succeded her sister as Grand Duchess in 1919. Married Felix of Bourbon-Parma, lived in London durning WWII she had six children including the Grand Duke Jean. She abdicated in 1964 and died in 1985.

Antonia- married Rupprecht, Crown Prince of Bavaria. They had six children. During WWII Rupprecht was given the chance to be King of Bavaria he refused because he was against the Nazi reigeme. When in exile in Hungary Antonia and there children were arrested and sent to a concentration camp, although they were eventually freed Antonia died a few years later.

I don't know much about the other sisters.

A German website says that princess Hilda married Adolf Johann Maria Franz-Joseph Hubertus Agapit Fürst zu Schwarzenberg (1890-1950) on october 29th 1930 at Schloss Berg (I found that it's not Schloß Berg at the lake of Starnberg south of Munich, where king Ludwig II. of Bavaria died so mysteriously, but the castle of Colmar-Berg, where the princess was born). Princess Hilda wore the Empire Diamond tiara to her wedding.

A picture of Grand Duchess Maria Teresa wearing the tiara can be seen here:
http://www.royal-magazin.de/luxembur...ria-teresa.htm There's a wedding picture of princess Hilda (who died in 1979) as well.

Here are faximile pages of a newspaper of Luxembourg with the report about the wedding of princess Hilda:
http://www.bnl.lu/cgi-bin/luxonline....ue=21&page=321 If you exchange the last nr. 321 to 322 ff, then you can read the rest of the article (in German).

Elisabeth, Princess Ludwig Philipp of Thurn und Taxis, née Princess of Luxemburg (1901-1950). Princess Elisabeth had only one surviving child:
Iniga Anne Margarete Wilhelmine Luise Prinzessin von Thurn und Taxis was born on 25 August 1925 in Schloss Niederaichbach.2 She is the daughter of Ludwig Philipp Prinz von Thurn und Taxis and Elisabeth Marie Wilhelmine von Nassau-Weilburg, Princesse de Luxembourg.2 She married Eberhard Prinz von Urach, son of Wilhelm Karl Herzog von Urach and Amalie Maria Herzogin in Bayern, on 18 May 1948 in Niederaichbach, Germany, in a civil marriage. Iniga Anne Margarete Wilhelmine Luise and Eberhard were remarried in a religious ceremony on 20 May 1948 in Regensburg, Germany.
Her children (grandchildren of Princess Elisabeth) are:
1. Amelie Prinzessin von Urach+ b. 6 Apr 19492
2. Elisabeth Prinzessin von Urach b. 10 Dec 19522
3. Karl Anselm Prinz von Urach+ b. 5 Feb 19552
4. Wilhelm Prinz von Urach+ b. 9 Aug 19572
5. Eberhard Friedrich Inigo Prinz von Urach+ b. 12 Apr 1962

Sophie, Princess Ernst Heinrich of Saxony (1902-1941)

She was accused with being a bit too friendly to the invading Germans during World War I.

Here is the picture of Hilda who was not visible at the time of my preceding post :



She was, in my opinion, after Marie Adelheid and Charlotte, the most beautiful and the most gracious of the six sisters.
