PRUSSIA – POSTCARD – PRINZESSIN VICTORIA MARGARETE
This postcard depicts Prinzessin Victoria Margarete of Prussia (1890-1923). Her father was Prinz Friedrich Leopold (1865-1931), who was Prinz Friedrich Karl’s (1828-1885) son. Through her mother, Victoria was a niece of Kaiserin Augusta Victoria, Wilhelm II’s wife. She married Prinz Heinrich XXXIII Reuss of Köstritz (1879-1942) in May 1913. They divorced on July 14, 1922. She died a year later at age 33. In this photo she wears a large picture hat bedecked with what appear to be white ostrich feathers. She is wearing an elaborate white or light-colored gown, probably a summer outfit.
