I have seen a new section in Mecklenburg-Strelitz web site.

While Duke and Grand Dukes section is complete, I can't wait to real a little bit more about the Duchesses and Grand Duchesses section which is still partly under construction.

Last weekend there was the 4th edition of the Tulip ball, in the Koepelkerk (Dome church - now part of the Renaissance hotel) on the Singel in Amsterdam.

Among the -mainly aristocratic- guests was Duke Michael of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, youngest son of the duke Borwin and his wife Alice Wagner:

Interesting that this sort of balls are still held in the Netherlands. Strange that we never saw the Orange-Nassaus or the Bourbon-Parmas on this sort of balls.

I've read from time to time in Svensk Damtidning about young nobles from all over Europe participating in get togethers and balls arranged by Pan-European nobility associations but I've never heard about this one before.

If Google translate doesn't deceive me it says it's the fourth annual ball so maybe the reason for no members of the Dutch Royal Family having attended is that there hasn't been anyone of the right age that have been interested in going?

According to his biography on the website of the house he was one of the organizers (at least in previous years) - while studying at Leiden University in the Netherlands.

In what year had the ties between the Royal House of Montenegro and the Grand Ducal House of Mecklenburg-Strelitz been severed?

Indeed. God bless her.

On June 3rd 2019 has passed away at the age of 100: Woizlawa-Feodora Elise Marie Elisabeth Prinzessin Reuß, Herzogin zu Mecklenburg (1918-2019).

Woizlawa was the last still living participant at the Royal Wedding of Princess Juliana of the Netherlands and Bernhard Prinz zur Lippe-Biesterfeld in 1937. The Princess was a full cousin to Queen Juliana of the Netherlands:



GENERATION 2
Woizlawa-Feodora Elise Marie Elisabeth Herzogin zu Mecklenburg (1918-2019)
|
GENERATION 1
Adolf Friedrich Albrecht Heinrich Herzog zu Mecklenburg
x Victoria Feodora Agnes Leopoldine Elisabeth Prinzessin Reuß
|
--------------------------------------------------------------------
GENERATION 0
Friedrich Franz II Großherzog von Mecklenburg
x Marie Karoline Auguste Prinzessin von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt
--------------------------------------------------------------------
|
GENERATION 1
Heinrich Wladimir Albrecht Ernst Herzog zu Mecklenburg
x Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria Koningin der Nederlanden, Prinses van Oranje-Nassau
|
GENERATION 2
Juliana Louise Emma Marie Wilhelmina Koningin der Nederlanden, Prinses van Oranje-Nassau, Hertogin van Mecklenburg (1909-2004)


With the passing-away of Woizlawa, the House of Mecklenburg, branch Schwerin, is on the verge of extinction with two females still living:

Donata von Solodkoff, Herzogin zu Mecklenburg (1956)
Edwina von Posern, Herzogin zu Mecklenburg (1960)

Donata and Edwina are daughters of Christian-Ludwig Ernst August Maximilian Johann Albrecht Adolf Friedrich Herzog zu Mecklenburg and of Barbara Irene Adelheid Viktoria Prinzessin von Preußen.
