If you can...you should check out the book Victoria's Daughter's. The book discusses the relationship that Victoria has with her daughters. Of course, her sons also made great marriages (ie. Edward with Alexandra of Denmark) but from her daughters we get the Kaiser, and Princess Alice (Prince Phillip's grandmother).

Small correction - Alice was Philip's great-grandmother.

Alice's eldest daughter was Victoria and her eldest daughter was Alice. Alice was Philip's mother.

Modern Day Descendants Of Queen Victoria’s Half Siblings
 
MODERN DAY DESCENDANTS OF QUEEN VICTORIA’S HALF SIBLINGS

Any information on the modern day descendants of Queen Victoria’s half siblings?


And if so, what is their relationship with the current House of Windsor?

Thank you for the comments.

Feodora's daughter Adelheid had a daughter named Augusta Victoria who had a daughter named Viktoria Luise, Viktroia's son George married Prince Philip's sister and her daughter Fredrika married the King of Greece.

I had no idea that Feodora was Augusta Viktoria's grandmother.

There is a lengthy list at www.angelfire.com/in/heinbruins/Leinengen.html.

Some of the names are pretty familiar, and some aren't.

Feodora's great-grandson Gottfried of Hohenlohe-Langenburg married Princess Margarita of Greece (sister to Prince Philip).

Wow, so Feodora's granddaughter married Victoria's eldest grandson/child, Kaiser Wilhelm II. Good to know.

Didn't Victoria's half-brother's line die out?

Queen Victoria's half sister Anna Feodorovna von Leiningen had these children:
  1. Carl Ludwig Wilhelm Leopold Prinz zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg+ b. 25 Oct 1829, d. 16 May 19071
  2. Elise Prinzessin zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg b. 8 Nov 1830, d. 27 Feb 18502
  3. Hermann Ernst Franz Bernhard VI Fürst zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg+ b. 31 Aug 1832, d. 9 Mar 19131
  4. Viktor Prinz zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg+ b. 11 Dec 1833, d. 31 Dec 18912
  5. Adelheid Prinzessin zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg+ b. 20 Jul 1835, d. 25 Jan 19001
  6. Feodore Viktorie Adelheid Prinzessin zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg+
you can follow their family trees at https://www.thepeerage.com/p10366.htm#i103658.

You end up eg with Queen Sofia of Spain and king Constantine of Greece (via queen Friedericke of Greece) and king Carl XVI. Gustaf of Sweden (via his mother Crown Princess Sybilla).

So Crown Prince Felipe of Spain, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece are descendants of queen Victoria's half sister. Come to think of it, the Head of the House of Prussia ia a descendant, too, because Wilhelm II.'s empress Auguste was a grand-niece of queen Victoria. Via the Hanover-marriage of the emperor's daughter Victoria Luise little Alexandra of Hanover-Grimaldi, the youngest daughter of princess Caroline of Monaco, is a descendant, either. Any Habsburg-link? ;)

Princess Feodora's Habsburg descendants
 
Yes, there are habsburg links, and not minor one, since archduchess Regina, wife of Archduke Otto, is also one of Feodora's descendants. The line is as follows:

Princess Feodora zu Leiningen (Queen Victoria's half-sister)/princess Feodora zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg/prince Friedrich of Saxe-Meiningen/Georg, duke of Saxe-Meiningen/princess Regina of Saxe-Meiningen (archduchess Regina)

Do not forget also that, through empress Augusta-Viktoria, Feodora is also one of Grand-duke George Mikhailovich's Ancestors.

List of Queen Victoria's Descendants
 
victoria

After several days of hard work (spread out over a month, give or take) I present to you a consisce geneology of the descendants of Queen Victoria. Off the top of my head, I can't think of another place that gives so much information in one place. It's usually full of information over a ton of royals and not just limited to Queen V's descendants, so I decided to start up this one for reference.

I have to get a references page up to cite places I got the info, but the geneological data is all here. Hope this is helpful to people :smile: I know I've made mistakes in dates and stuff that I didn't catch the first time around, so feel free to let me know if there are things that I can fix.

Sophus 03-23-2007 04:48 AM

May I just say 'WOW'...
... and thank you! :flowers:

Prodigious research Morhange, congratulations. :flowers:

One thing I noticed.. position 327 - HSH Princess Victoria-Benigna Biron von Curland (or Courland) married Baron Johann von Twickel. My understanding is that their sons are Barons von Twickel, not HSH Princes von Twickel. They could not legitimately claim or assume the title of Prince or the style of Serene Highness through their mother's marriage to a Baron. This princely titling and styling has been carried through to the son and daughter of (Baron) Nikolaus von Twickel at position 690.

The url cross-linking and referencing of the entries must have taken a lot of work, and it makes tracking the relationships so much easier.
This is a great companion with updated data to Marlene Eilers' "Queen Victoria's Descendants". Impressive indeed!

Very impressive.

Just one nitpick - the way you have sorted out the Norwegian royal family makes it look like Marius is also one of Queen Victoria's descendants.

morhange 03-23-2007 11:24 AM

Thanks for the compliments everyone :)

I'll get right on those two things. Sometimes when things are getting repetetive, I do things like that. Will get it fixed and udpated :)

Lady Jennifer 03-23-2007 06:23 PM

Good job morhange. The only thing is the background seems a little too busy (but its a great picture!) & its kind of hard to read the links, etc.

Furienna 03-23-2007 09:18 PM

I highlight the text, then it gets easier to read! LOL!

Nice site, Morhange!

morhange 03-23-2007 10:33 PM

I was trying to fix the layout, but for some reason, it doesn't want to cooperate with me :rolleyes:

Marengo 04-11-2007 05:56 PM

Great website morhange. I hope you did not have to do all the research yourself to. If youwant more information about the descendants it might be wise to borrow Marlene Eilers' ' Queen Victoria's Descendants' from you local library (+ the follow-up)

Vanesa 04-12-2007 01:45 AM

It's an amazing work, Morhange. Have my congratulations...Sure, you'd worked hard, my dear! It's a very well done site, with a lot of ressources about Queen Victoria's descendants. A real "must" for all people interested in Queen Victoria's family.


Vanesa.

Count Carl Johan and Lady Katherine
 
I'm very interested in all of the descendants of Queen Victoria. As of today, all of her children and grandchildren are dead, and all but two of her great-grandchildren are deceased as well. The two that aren't are Count Carl Johan Bernadotte (born Prince Carl Johan of Sweden, Duke of Dalarna) and Lady Katherine Brandram (born Princess Aikaterini of Greece and Denmark)

Like with the survivors of the Titanic (of which there are just two remaining) the last two living great-grandchildren of Queen Victoria will soon no longer be with us. I was just curious to know if anyone knows how these two are doing, health-wise? I know Count Carl Johan is still pretty active, since he recently celebrated his 95th birthday, but I don't hear very much about Lady Katherine. Is she close to her Greek nephew and his family? I think she lives in London, and so do Konstantine and Anne-Marie. Do they visit her often?

Thanks :)
