Marie Adélaïde of Savoy
Marie Adélaïde of Savoy, Princess of Savoy was the wife of Louis, Dauphin of France, Duke of Burgundy. She was the eldest daughter of Duke Victor Amadeus II of Savoy and of Anne Marie d'Orléans, her betrothal to the Duke of Burgundy in June 1696 was part of the Treaty of Turin, signed on 29 August 1696. She was the mother of the future King Louis XV of France. Styled as Duchess of Burgundy after her marriage, she became Dauphine of France upon the death of her father-in-law, Le Grand Dauphin, in 1711, she died of measles followed by her husband a week later. Born at the Royal Palace of Turin in December 1685, Marie Adélaïde was the eldest daughter of Victor Amadeus II, Duke of Savoy since 1675, his French wife Anne Marie d'Orléans, a niece of Louis XIV, the daughter of Philippe of France, Duke of Orléans and of Henrietta of England, her birth nearly cost her sixteen-year-old mother her life. As a female, she was not eligible to inherit the duchy of Savoy due to salic law, her grandmother Marie Jeanne of Savoy and the Prince of Carignan acted as godparents.
Marie Adélaïde enjoyed a close relationship with her grandmother as well as her mother who, despite protocol, was raising her children herself, quite unusual among royalty during the era. As children and her sister Maria Luisa frequented the Vigno di Madama outside Turin, paid weekly visits to their grandmother at the Palazzo Madama in Turin. Marie Adelaide was tiny described as "doll-sized." Her hair was chestnut in her youth, darkened as she grew up. Her eyes were black, surrounded by long eyelashes; the marriage of Marie Adélaïde came as a result of the Treaty of Turin signed on 29 August 1696. This treaty between her father and Louis XIV agreed that her father would support France in the Nine Years' War, her father's dominions had been ravaged during the war. Victor Amadeus had first proposed Marie Adélaïde as a candidate for marriage with the Archduke Joseph, but Emperor Leopold I had declined because of their young age; the Treaty of Turin was negotiated under the influence of the Maréchal de Tessé, who suggested that Marie Adelaïde be sent to France to perfect her education before marrying the French prince.
Upon her arrival in France, Louis XIV, who had come to greet her, met her in Montargis on 4 November 1696, was quite pleased with "the Princess". As she was still a girl of 11 years, the marriage did not take place immediately. Instead, three days a week, she was a pupil at the Maison royale de Saint-Louis, the girls' school Madame de Maintenon had founded in 1684 in Saint-Cyr, in the vicinity of Versailles. On 6 December 1697, on her twelfth birthday, Marie Adelaïde was formally married to the Duke of Burgundy in the Palace of Versailles; the event took place after the signing of the Treaty of Ryswick. Her husband was Maria Anna Victoria of Bavaria; the new Duchess of Burgundy had a close relationship with Madame de Maintenon. Her arrival in Versailles was described "like a breath of fresh air," reviving the dull court, she maintained an ongoing correspondence with her parents and grandmother back in Savoy. She used her influence over the aging king to prevent her political enemies from furthering their causes.
This group, known as the cabale de Meudon, devoted themselves to her father-in-law, hoping to secure themselves in his expected reign upon the death of Louis XIV. Her great enemy was the Duchess of Bourbon, a legitimated daughter of Louis XIV and his mistress, Madame de Montespan; the Duchess of Bourbon wanted her daughter Mademoiselle de Bourbon to wed Charles, Duke of Berry, youngest son of the Grand Dauphin. To maintain her influence over her grandfather-in-law, the Duchess of Burgundy organized Berry's marriage to Marie Louise Élisabeth d'Orléans, the eldest daughter of Philippe d'Orléans, Duke of Orléans and of his wife Françoise Marie de Bourbon; the influential Marie Adélaïde brought about the disgrace of Louis Joseph, Duke of Vendôme, the great military man of the era. The Duchess of Burgundy gave birth to her first child in 1704; the child, a short-lived boy, was given the title Duke of Brittany before his death in 1705. Marie Adélaïde bore two more children in 1707 and 1710, her youngest son, the only child to survive beyond childhood became King Louis XV of France.
In early April 1711, her father-in-law Le Grand Dauphin caught smallpox and died on 14 April at the Château de Meudon. Upon the death of Le Grand Dauphin, Marie Adélaïde's husband became Dauphin of France and she Dauphine of France; the mourning court traveled to Fontainebleau in February 1712. At Fontainebleau, Marie Adélaïde caught a fever. Having been bled and given emetics, she died in Versailles at the age of 26. Louis XIV and Madame de Maintenon were plunged into sadness. Madame said that Marie Adélaïde was one of the only two persons Louis XIV had truly loved in his life, the other being Anne of Austria, the king's mother. After the Dauphine's death, the royal family moved to Marly to avoid the spread of infection, it was at Marly that the Dauphin himself died six days having caught the measles from his wife. The couple was buried together at the Basilica of Saint Denis on 23 February 1712, their son, the Duke of Brittany succeeded as Dauphin, but he died the following March from the measles.
The only child to survive the epidemic was the future Louis XV, locked inside his apartments with his governess Madame de Ventadour to avoid being bled to death by doctors like his elder brother had been. Madame de Ventadour was renowned for having saved the infant Louis XV's life. Louis XV subsequently named his fourth daughter Marie Adélaïde in his mother's honour; the Dauphine was the

Princess Marie Bonaparte
Princess Marie Bonaparte, known as Princess George of Greece and Denmark upon her marriage, was a French author and psychoanalyst linked with Sigmund Freud. Her wealth contributed to the popularity of psychoanalysis, enabled Freud's escape from Nazi Germany. Marie Bonaparte was a great-grandniece of Emperor Napoleon I of France, she was the only child of Prince Roland Marie-Félix Blanc. Her paternal grandfather was Prince Pierre Napoleon Bonaparte, son of Prince Lucien Bonaparte, one of Napoleon's rebellious and disinherited younger brothers. For this reason, despite her title Marie was not a member of the dynastic branch of the Bonapartes who claimed the French imperial throne from exile, her maternal grandfather was the principal real-estate developer of Monte Carlo. It was from this side of her family, she was born at Saint-Cloud, a town in Hauts-de-Seine, Île-de-France and called Mimi within the family. Her maternal grandfather had left an estimated fortune of FF 88M when he died in 1877. However, his widow, born Marie Hensel, left debts for her three children, including Marie's mother Marie-Félix, to pay off upon her death in July 1881.
Prince Roland protected his wife's fortune by persuading her to renounce that of her late mother before the amount of her debts became known. Marie-Felix died of an embolism shortly after Marie's birth, leaving half of her FF 8.4M dowry to her husband and half to her daughter. Most was managed in trust during Marie's youth by her father, who had few financial resources of his own. Marie lived with her father, a published geographer and botanist, in Paris and on various family country estates where he studied and lectured, leading an active life in Parisian academic circles and on expeditions abroad, while her daily life was supervised by tutors and servants. Afflicted by phobias and hypochondria as a youth, Marie spent much of her time in seclusion, reading literature and writing the personal journals which reveal her inquisitive spirit and early commitment to the scientific method reflected in her father's scholarship. Several candidates for future husband presented themselves or were considered by Prince Roland for his daughter's hand, notably a distant cousin of the princely House of Murat, Prince Hermann of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach and Louis II, Prince of Monaco.
Following a Parisian luncheon Prince Roland hosted for King George I of Greece in September 1906 during which the king agreed to the prospect of a marriage between their children, Prince George of Greece and Denmark, second of the king's five sons, was introduced to Marie on 19 July 1907 at the Bonapartes' home in Paris. He courted her for twenty-eight days, confiding that from 1883, George had lived not at his father's Greek court in Athens, but at Bernstorff Palace near Copenhagen with Prince Valdemar of Denmark, his father's youngest brother; the queen had taken the boy to Denmark to enlist him in the Danish royal navy and consigned him to the care of Valdemar, an admiral in the Danish fleet. Feeling abandoned by his father on this occasion, George described to his fiancée the profound attachment he developed for his uncle, he admitted that, contrary to what he knew were her hopes, he could not commit to living permanently in France since he was obligated to undertake royal duties in Greece or on its behalf if summoned to do so.
Once his proposal of marriage was accepted, the bride's father was astonished when George waived any contractual clause guaranteeing an allowance or inheritance from Marie. On 21 November 1907 in Paris and George were married in a civil ceremony, with a subsequent Greek Orthodox ceremony on 12 December 1907, at Athens. Thereafter she was known as Princess Marie of Denmark. By March 1908 Marie was pregnant and, as agreed, the couple returned to France to take up residence; when George brought his bride to Denmark for the first visit with his uncle, Prince Valdemar's wife, Marie d'Orléans, was at pains to explain to Marie Bonaparte the intimacy which united uncle and nephew, so deep that at the end of each of George's several yearly visits to Bernstorff he would weep, Valdemar would fall sick, the women learned the patience not to intrude upon their husbands' private moments. During the first of these visits, Marie Bonaparte and Valdemar found themselves engaging in the kind of passionate intimacies she had looked forward to with her husband who, only seemed to enjoy them vicariously, sitting or lying beside his wife and uncle.
On a visit, Marie Bonaparte carried on a passionate flirtation with Prince Aage, Valdemar's eldest son. In neither case does it appear that George objected, or felt obliged to give the matter any attention. Marie Bonaparte came to admire the forbearance and independence of Valdemar's wife under circumstances which caused her bewilderment and estrangement from her own husband. Although Marie joined her husband in Greece or elsewhere for national holidays and dynastic ceremonies, their life together was spent on her estates in the French countryside. For months at a time, George was in Athens or Copenhagen, while Marie was in Paris, Vienna or traveling with the couple's children; that pattern allowed each to pursue activities. The couple had two children and Eugénie. From 1913 to early 1916, Marie carried on an intense flirtation with French prime minister Aristide Briand, but went no

Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine (1874–1878)
Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine, was the youngest child and fifth daughter of Ludwig IV, the Grand Duke of Hesse and his first wife Princess Alice of the United Kingdom. Her mother was Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, she died of diphtheria at the age of four and was buried with her mother, who died a few weeks of the same disease. She and Queen Victoria shared the same birthday, she had six older siblings, Elizabeth, Ernest and Alix. She was given the names Marie Viktoria Feodore Leopoldine after her maternal grandmother and uncle, the haemophilic Prince Leopold, the Tsarevna of Russia, Marie Feodorovna, Alix's godmother and future mother in law. Marie was known as "May" in the family; when she was a baby, her mother remarked in a letter that "little sister Maly" bore a strong resemblance to her dead brother Friedrich at the same age "with such quick eyes and two deep dimples in her cheeks." A few weeks Alice wrote that baby "Maly" had fair skin, light brown hair and deep blue eyes. As she grew older, she smiled and Alice thought she more resembled her older sister Victoria, with "fair hair, marked eyebrows and speaking eyes."
She and her sister Alix, two years older, "made a pretty contrast." Her mother thought her youngest child was "enchanting" and as a toddler the little girl called her mother "my'weetheart." Alix was her constant companion. The two girls were shared the nursery; the family enjoyed a trip to the seaside in the summer of 1877 and the two youngest girls were a source of delight to their mother. Sending photos taken to her mother, Queen Victoria, Alice wrote that "May has not such fat cheeks in reality; the two little girlies are so sweet, so dear and nice. I don't know, dearest, they are both so captivating." Tragedy struck the Grand Ducal family in 1878. As her sister Victoria described the scene the family had been gathered together on the evening of 5 November when she developed a stiff neck. Victoria reported her symptoms to their mother, who thought it might be mumps and said it would be "comical" if they all caught it. Victoria felt well enough to read Alice in Wonderland to her younger siblings, while her mother sat nearby chatting with her friend Katie Macbean, filling in for an absent lady-in-waiting.
Marie begged her mother to let her have more cake. Her siblings asked Miss Macbean to play the piano, they went to bed in high spirits. The next morning Victoria was diagnosed with diphtheria. Princess Alice ordered a steam inhaler be brought to her room to prevent the ill Alix from choking to death. Hours Princess Marie ran into her mother's room, crawled into bed with her and kissed her. By afternoon, Marie as well was displaying the symptoms of the disease, suffering from a high fever. White spots and a white membrane covered the back of her throat; the next day her sister Irene became ill and on the day of 14 November her brother Ernest and father Louis became ill with diphtheria. Alice and the doctors nursed. On the morning of 16 November, Marie choked to death from the membrane covering her throat, her mother, awakened by the doctors, hurried to the nursery. Alice sat by her daughter's body, kissing Marie's face and hands, trying to work up the strength to tell her ill husband, she watched. For weeks, Alice concealed Marie's death from the other sick children, who asked about her and tried to send their little sister toys.
Elizabeth, sent to stay with her paternal grandmother, was the only child who escaped infection. The sick children were told at the beginning of December that Marie had died. Ten-year-old Ernest at first refused to believe the news and broke down in tears, his mother kissed him, despite the risk of infection. On 7 December Alice recognized the symptoms of diphtheria in herself, she died on the morning of 14 December, murmuring "From Friday to Saturday -- four weeks -- May -- dear Papa." Alice was interred beside her daughter. A statue by Joseph Boehm was placed on the tomb of Alice holding Marie in her arms, it is believed that Marie's niece, Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia, the third daughter of Alix and her husband Nikolai II of Russia, was named for her and the Dowager Empress of Russia, Maria Feodorovna. 24 May 1874 – 16 November 1878: Her Grand Ducal Highness Princess Marie Viktoria Feodore Leopoldine of Hesse and by Rhine Maria Alexandrovna Mager, Hugo.

Princess Marie Louise of Schleswig-Holstein
Princess Marie Louise of Schleswig-Holstein was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria. Princess Marie Louise was born in Windsor Great Park, her father was Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein, the third son of Duke Christian of Schleswig-Holstein and Countess Louise of Danneskjold-Samsøe. Her mother was Princess Helena, the fifth child and third daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, she was baptized on 18 September 1872. Her godparents were Queen Marie of Hanover, her parents resided in the United Kingdom, the Princess was considered a member of the British Royal Family. Under Royal Warrant of May 15 1867, the children of Prince and Princess Christian were to be styled "Highness". From her birth in 1872 therefore Princess Marie Louise was styled Her Highness Princess Marie Louise of Schleswig-Holstein in the United Kingdom, she was known to her family as "Louie". She was a bridesmaid at the 1885 wedding of her maternal aunt Princess Beatrice, to Prince Henry of Battenberg.
On 6 July 1891, Princess Marie Louise married Prince Aribert of Anhalt at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. Prince Aribert was the third son of Frederick I, Duke of Anhalt, his wife, Princess Antoinette of Saxe-Altenburg; the bride's first cousin, the German Emperor Wilhelm II, had been instrumental in arranging the match. Though contemporary sources did not directly suggest it was a cause of his marriage dissolution, a number of contemporaries and subsequent historical accounts suggest Aribert was bisexual or homosexual, some have suggested an indiscretion with a male attendant was the catalyst for the dissolution and that the marriage had never been consummated; the marriage was annulled on 13 December 1900 by his father. Princess Marie Louise, on an official visit to Canada at the time returned to Britain. According to her memoirs, she regarded. After the annulment, Princess Marie Louise devoted herself to charitable organisations and patronage of the arts, she inspired the creation of Queen Mary's Dolls' House to showcase the work of British craftsmen.
She established the Girl's Club in Bermondsey that served as a hospital during World War I. She was active in the work of the Princess Christian Nursing Home at Windsor, she took part in all official occasions of the royal family, including coronations and funerals and processed as a princess of the blood royal at events such as the coronation of George VI and the carriage procession for princesses of the blood royal at the coronation of Elizabeth II. In 1919 the Wolf Cub pack from the 4th Streatham Scout Group, met Princess Marie Louise on her visit to Streatham, South London; the group provided her with a guard of honour for her visit to Streatham. She was so impressed with the group and their high standards, that she declared the group as her own, it has since been known as the 4th Streatham Sea Scout Group. In July 1917, when George V changed the name of the British Royal House from the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to House of Windsor, he ordered his numerous cousins and in-laws, who were British subjects, to discontinue the use of their German titles and surnames.
Never taking other titles or surnames, Princess Marie Louise and her unmarried sister, Princess Helena Victoria, became known as "HH Princess Marie Louise" and "HH Princess Helena Victoria", giving them the odd distinction of being princesses but not members of any particular royal family. This approach differed from the one accepted by George V's other relatives, who relinquished all princely titles, not just their German designations, in turn received British titles of nobility from the King, their titles of Princess were derived from their father, they were not princesses of the United Kingdom. However, their unmarried status and their right to be styled Highness dating from Queen Victoria's concession of 1867 rendered their situations awkward, so that it was easier to allow them to retain their status as princesses while avoiding the question of immediate family membership altogether. Princess Marie Louise attended four coronations in Westminster Abbey, those of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1902.
In 1956, she published My Memories of Six Reigns.
