Winterhalter loved painting every frothy inch of the too-muchness of mid-century clothing: 1858 Anna of Prussia by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadephia Pennsylvania) FDxMinnie 14Dec09 Franz Xaver Winterhalter, Queens Victoria, Art, Royal Portraits, Canvas, Princesses Anne, Painting, Princesses Alice, Antiques
Victoria's children (first): Princess Victoria (Vicky), Princess Royal. She became the Empress of Germany and Queen of Prussia when she married German Emperor Frederick III. She was therefore the Crown Princess of the UK as well as being known as Empress Frederick of Prussia. She was the mother of Kaiser Wilhelm II. She died only a few months after her mother, Victoria, of cancer, in 1902.
Maria Anna of Neuberg, Queen of Spain as consort of Carlos II. 1667-1740. Pretty but difficult, she was chosen as queen because the king had no issue, and her parents had had 17 children. Drove everyone bats (at a guess, she suffered from some sort of congenital mental instability) and ironically, had no issue. Lots of inbreeding in her family--related to Anne of Cleves in 2 lines, and to Hesse in at least 2.
Queen Elizabeth and two of her children, Princess Anne and Prince Charles. Princess Anne. The forgotten child? Kidnapping attempt in the 70's. We could play with this in dialogue? Relational ideal for a time period's heroine? Meh. Maybe.
