Prinzessin Friederike Wilhelmine Luise Elisabeth Alexandrine von Preußen 1. Februar 1842 in Berlin; † 26. März 1906 auf Schloss Marly in Potsdam) war ein Mitglied des Hauses Hohenzollern, wurde als zweite Tochter von Prinz Albrecht von Preußen und dessen Frau Marianne von Oranien-Nassau geboren.

Sie hatte noch zwei ältere Geschwister, Prinzessin Charlotte, die später Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Meiningen wurde, und Prinz Albrecht.

The forthcoming marriage of Princess Alexandrine of Prussia on December 9, 1865 and the exhibition of the shining "Trousseau" that preceded it is the talk of the town at this time.

No real Berliner will so easily miss the opportunity to enjoy a spectacle that is far more interesting for a large part of the ladies than all the wonders of the world. Whole crowds of people wandered these days to the royal palace, where in the state rooms of Frederick William II this museum of luxury, this El Dorado of female dreams and wishes, this heaven of women was open for a few hours.

Happy the one or rather the one who was granted to have a look into this magic realm. Unfortunately, the Court Marshal's Office had allowed only a few chosen ones to enter this fairy world, so that hardly the twentieth part of the requests received were considered.

These gentlemen, whose services to the "state" were recognized by the whole of Berlin, had taken over the arrangement of the whole thing and decorated the magnificent rooms in the most tasteful way. There was everything united that could delight a woman's eye and make a woman's heart happy; legions of the most delicate shoes and boots, as if made for Cinderella's little foot; silk, colored and white stockings, as soft and delicate as if they had been woven by elf hands; mountains of underwear. Dozens of chemisettes with the most precious lace trimmings and the most artistic embroidery; charming negligee jackets and capes; even the mysteries of the toilet, crinoline and corset, were not closed and proved anew that all is pure to the pure.

The centrepiece of these treasures was of course the wedding dress from the heaviest, white Moire Antique with its "six cubits" long and "four cubits" wide train, covered with the most wonderful gold and silver embroidery, next to it the bridal wreath and cour robe of blue velvet, with silver lilies and jasmine twigs in sublime work, a gift from the widowed queen.

Around these two splendours are grouped the other countless ball gowns, society dresses, house dresses, mantilles and paletots, including a jacket of black velvet, with buttons and trimming of genuine red coral, an object of admiration and envy for many a lady.

Next to this was the King's bridal gift, a so-called "Riviere" of rising diamonds, nineteen on each side, shining in the purest water and set a jour by the highest value with a large magnificent finale in the middle.

further royal gifts by the mother Princess Marianne of the Netherlands, Orange-Nassau:

of the dowager queen

-a tiara and jewellery set of large turquoises and rich diamonds.

finally the main thing, a dowry of "six million thalers", which however were not exhibited.

As is well known, the bride so richly endowed is a daughter of Prince Albrecht of Prussia and Princess Marianne of the Netherlands. Both have been divorced for a long time and have already been married for the second time, both not by marriage.

While the father lives on his villa near Dresden in happy marriage with a daughter of General v. Rauch, the mother, one of the richest princesses in the world, lives in her beautiful castle Kamentz in Silesia, the construction of which cost several millions. It is probably for this reason that Princess Alexandrine, far from her parents, was brought up at the court of the deceased king and under the care of the widowed queen.

She was generally considered the darling of the childless royal couple, and just as lovable, though less beautiful, than her prematurely deceased sister, the hereditary Princess of Meiningen, at whose deathbed the separated parents met again after years in deepest pain. After a connection with a related, powerful royal house, which had been discussed and projected many times in the highest circles, had not come about for unknown reasons, the princess unexpectedly became engaged to Prince Wilhelm of Mecklenburg, whose youth history the well-known historiographer of the German courts.

 

 

Princess Marianne was in her days extremely wealthy, mainly from her fathers inheritance.

Princess Alexandrine, Pss of Prussia (Berlin 1 Feb 1842-Schloß Marly 25 Mar 1906, one of the daughters of princess Marianne married 1865 to Friedrich Wilhelm Nikolaus (Ludwigslust 5 Mar 1827-Heidelberg 28 Jul 1879.

They had one child:

Princess Friederike Wilhelmine Elisabeth Alexandrine Auguste Marianne Charlotte born at Schloß Bellevue 7 Nov 1868-Partenkirchen 20 Dec 1944)
m.1st Schwerin 17 Nov 1886 Heinrich XVIII Pr Reuss (Leipzig 14 May 1847-Schweinfurt 15 Aug 1911);
m.2d Berlin 4 Feb 1921 Robert Schmidt (Wilmersdorf 1 Nov 1892-Bamberg 26 Dec 1971) ....

Kaiserin Friedrich mentions princess Alexandrine (nicknamed Maddy) in her letters to queen Victoria. Kaiserin Friedrich was very fnd of Maddy and would have liked her to marry one of her British relatives. She writes "if Maddy would marry, she would immediately receive 1 million guilders from her mother".

Princess Marianne herself was, as far as I know, never mentioned in the letters to queen Victoria.
