SKU: 38-2353

$10.00

This postcard shows Prinzessin Eitel Friedrich (1879-1964). She was born Sophia Charlotte, a Duchess of the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg. She was married to Prinz Eitel Friedrich (1883-1942) one of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s six sons. It was well known publicly that the marriage was unhappy. Rumors of infidelities by both parties and suggestions that the Prinz was homosexual were rampant. Supposedly, Eitel Friedrich had wanted to divorce Sophia in 1919, but was prevented from doing so by his father. They finally were divorced in 1926. They had no children. She is seated at a table outside, holding what looks like a buggy whip. She is wearing the sumptiously embroidered dress and another huge picture hat covered with what probably are ostrich plumes. A portion of the upper right corner has been clipped off.
