I think you'll find Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia died in 1951. His eldest son, Prince Wilhelm of Prussia died in 1941, while on active service with the Wehrmacht in the Second World War.

Sorry for not picking up on this sooner:)

She died December 11, 1980. I'm not sure where she died, but I'm sure it was at one of the numerous Hanover properties.

You can see some postcards I have of the family of Princess Viktoria Luise and Prince Ernst August by clicking on the following link:

http://photobucket.com/albums/y138/l...ostmarked1.jpg

*If you click on "next" at the top of the page then you can see more postcards. There are some postcards of other Royal Families from Germany. I still need to put the Prussian Family on "Photobucket.com".

*If anyone has any questions about any of my postcards then please let me know and I will answer them.

Yes I do own all of these postcards. They are all original postcards from the turn of the century. Some are in "mint condition" (never used) and others have been used.

Can you please translate into English the Speech of the Kaiser on the postcard that has his speech written in German? I would like to know what the Kaiser told his people on July 31, 1914.

The building shown in the postcard that says in German: "Germany, Germany Over All" is the building burned down by the Nazis. They blamed a mentally retarded boy for the fire.

Can you also tell me what the following translates into English:

"besichtigt das Denkmal Kaiser Wilhelm I. vor dem Rathause in Bielefeid nach der Enthullungsfeier am 29. August 1907."
(Postcard #16)

Also please translate into English:
"nimmt nach der Enthullungsfeier das Denkmals Kaiser Wilhelm I vor dem Bielefelder Rathause den Ehrentrunk der Stadt Bielefeld entgegen 29 August 1907"
(Postcard #15)

Thank you!
