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:)

Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia
When did died Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia, daughter of the Empress Frederick and mother of Queen Frederika of Greece, and at the time where did she lived?

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.

Jil, thanks for the pictures, they are really great.
Do you own all these postcards?

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!
