Princess Elisabeth of Hesse Prinzessin Elisabeth von Hessen und bei Rhein 1895-1903 The precious Eternity light of her royal and imperial jewel gifts

 

Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and by Rhine Elisabeth Marie Alice Viktoria 1895 – 1903 was a German Hessian child princess, the only daughter of Ernst Ludwig, Grand Duke of Hesse and by Rhine, and his first wife, Princess Victoria Melita of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

She was named after her paternal great-grandmother, Princess Elisabeth of Prussia. Her paternal aunt bore the same name, and both the young princess and her aunt were nicknamed Ella. Father Ernst Ludwig, Grand Duke of Hesse and mother Princess Victoria Melita of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

Rumor had it that Elizabeth's early death was due to a poison intended for her uncle, Emperor Nicholas II, but the court physician said that she died of malignant typhus, which was probably caused by drinking water from a contaminated stream have.

. Elisabeth's parents, nicknamed "Ernie" and "Ducky", were first cousins ​​who married at the instigation of their shared grandmother, Queen Victoria. The marriage was unhappy from the start. Princess Victoria Melita was eighteen years old at the time of Elizabeth's birth. She loved Elisabeth, but could hardly keep up with Ernst's devotion to their daughter.

He later had a playhouse built for his daughter, which stood in his own garden. Adults were forbidden entry, "much to the annoyance of the royal nurses and teachers, who could be seen pacing impatiently outside, waiting for their cocky young charges to stop their games and appear."

Thirty years later, Ernst was still shaken by the memory of his daughter's death. “My little Elisabeth,” he wrote in his memoirs, “was the sunshine of my life.”

 


Princess Elisabeth of Hesse Prinzessin Elisabeth von Hessen und bei Rhein 1895-1903| The precious Eternity light of her royal and imperial jewel gifts

In the heart of historical European aristocracy, where tradition meets timeless elegance, a unique artifact stands as a poignant testament to love, loss, and legacy. The story of the "Eternal Light" lamp, crafted in memory of Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and the Rhine, unfolds a narrative rich with emotional depth and exquisite artistry.

Princess Elisabeth, a jewel in the crown of the Grand Ducal family of Hesse, left the world prematurely in 1903, marking a profound period of mourning. In the wake of this tragedy, Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig, her bereaved father, embarked on a mission to immortalize his daughter's memory in a manner befitting her royal status and the deep affection he harbored for her.

Rejecting the notion of allowing Elisabeth's personal jewelry to adorn any other, the Grand Duke envisioned transforming these precious tokens of his daughter's life into sacred objects. Among these, the "Eternal Light" lamp emerged not merely as an illuminative device but as a beacon of remembrance, its every detail echoing Elisabeth's elegance and the profound void her passing left.

Entrusted with the realization of this vision was Robert Koch, a jeweler of repute from Frankfurt am Main, known for his mastery in crafting pieces that transcend the mere decorative, embodying stories and emotions. Koch, upon receiving the Grand Duke's sketches , set forth on a journey of creation that culminated in the lamp's completion in 1904, just in time for Easter—a symbol of resurrection and hope.

Standing at a majestic height of 79 cm and adorned in silver, gilded to perfection, the lamp is a marvel of filigree work. Its body and the long chains that hold it aloft are embellished with a variety of jewels and carved stones, elements that once graced the young princess.

Among these adornments are thirty-two Fabergé Easter eggs, gifts from her maternal aunts, Tsarina Alexandra of Russia and Grand Duchess Elizaveta, embedding within the lamp the familial bonds that tied Elisabeth to the illustrious Romanov family.

The "Eternal Light" lamp is not merely an object of art; it is a vessel of memory, holding within it the laughter, grace, and spirit of Princess Elisabeth. It stands alongside two other sacred objects, each a guardian of the legacy left behind by the princess. Together, they form a triad of tangible memories, crafted from the jewels that once sparkled upon Elisabeth, now serving a higher purpose.

In the silent beauty of its eternal flame, the lamp continues to shine—a perpetual reminder of a life cherished, a presence missed, and a love that transcends the mortal realm. Through the "Eternal Light" lamp, Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and the Rhine illuminates not just the physical spaces it graces but also the annals of history, her story etched in the annals of time by the meticulous craftsmanship of Robert Koch and the unparalleled vision of her father, Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig.
