Last week I went to a lecture about Princess Marianne and we even visited some places related to her in Voorburg. It was very interesting!

Princess Marianne reconstructed part of Schloss Reinhartshausen as a museum to house her collection of 600 paintings.

I never realized Princess Marianne was buried in a simple graveyard here's a video of her grave in Germany.

Marianne's portrait and quote for young Wilhelmina


'The last time Princess Marianne appeared in public in The Netherlands was in 1880, at the baptism of her great-niece, the future Queen Wilhelmina. She gave the little child a portrait of herself on which she wrote 'Oh there are so many things that I wish for this little girl. I know what it is like to be both Queen and woman. It causes such an internal struggle; many a queen may wish only to be born as a woman'. Wilhelmina kept the small portrait of Marianne in her studyroom untill she died, which must say something as Wilhelmina only surrounded herself there with (deceased) familymembers that she admired.'

Thanks for sharing a wealth of photos and information about Princess Marianne, Marengo! I did not know she gave a portrait to baby Wilhelmina and even wrote something to her. I was wondering if you could quote a source for this particular bit of information? Where is the portrait and/or quote to be found? Thanks so much!

It is from an article in Royalty Digest titled 'Princess Marianne of The Netherlands (1810-1883) A Royal Outcast. The author was Ricardo Mateos Sainz de Medrano, who is mainly known for his books on the Spanish monarchy.

I received a scan of the article from our administrator Warren who sadly died a few years ago. I do not know which number or even which year of RD it was, but it was from before it changed to the Royalty Digest Quarterly in 2006. The article runs from pages 322 to 328. The author did not use an annotation to back this claim. I have never seen the information written anywhere before or afterwards either.

Edit: it seems to come from issue 107, published in July 2000.
