Auguste Viktoria Friederike Luise Feodora Jenny of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg VA (born October 22, 1858 in Dolzig, Lower Lusatia, † April 11, 1921 in the house Doorn, Netherlands) was the wife of Emperor Wilhelm II and as such from 1888 to 1918 German Empress and Queen of Prussia.

When the princess fell in love with Prince Ernst of Saxe-Meiningen (1859-1941), son of Duke George II of Saxony-Meiningen, she was sent to England in 1875 for relatives. Through her maternal grandmother, she was a grandniece of British Queen Victoria (1819-1901).

William of Prussia, the later Emperor Wilhelm II., She met in 1868 in the Thuringian castle Reinhardsbrunn know. The acquaintance was renewed by the friendly parents in the summer of 1878 in Potsdam. The engagement on February 14, 1880 in Gotha (immediately after the death of her father) was in keeping with the family policy of the Prussian crown prince couple, in contrast to the Prussian court society and initially also Kaiser Wilhelm I. These felt the choice of the prince as inappropriate since the Family of the princess was considered not equal (by a bourgeois great-grandmother and a grandmother, who was only a countess). In addition, there was concern about Prussia's political involvement in the annexation of the duchies in 1866, as Duke Frederick VIII maintained his claims. The engagement was officially announced for this reason only on 2 June 1880.

    Hi Mum

    Just saw your answer and this design on your page. It is soo very nostalgic and beautiful.  I have been en route between the US and our beloved homeland, so I am just now getting around to settle in. Yep, back in old Germany again, after a five  month stay with my daughters in the US.   Here in O...... where I live, there is a plaque a few hundred yards from here commemorating die "Heimatvertriebenen".  When I pass by I have to read it every time and commiserate about what is happening to our Heimat. 


    A couple good books are also "Der Brand" by Joerg Friedrich, and another one "Die toten Staedte". Both have to do with the bombing of Germany. Don't remember the author of the latter since I have lent it to my (boy) friend.

    So wunderbar elegant und wunderschön! Ich liebe Barock und Renaissance, weil ich nicht für eine digitale und hochentwickelte technologische Welt geeignet bin! :-) Wenn du nach Schweden kommst, siehst du hier eine alte deutsche Architektur und Kunst :-) Ich kann dir viele interessante Links und Infos schicken, wenn du willst  dzanovic.ida@gmail.com
