Beatrice's childhood coincided with Queen Victoria's grief following the death of her husband on 14 December 1861. As her elder sisters married and left their mother, the Queen came to rely on the company of her youngest daughter, whom she called "Baby" for most of her childhood. Beatrice was brought up to stay with her mother always and she soon resigned herself to her fate. The Queen was so set against her youngest daughter marrying that she refused to discuss the possibility. Nevertheless, many suitors were put forward. Beatrice fell in love with Prince Henry of Battenberg, the son of Prince Alexander of Hesse and by Rhine and Julia von Hauke and brother-in-law of her niece Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine. After a year of persuasion, the Queen, whose consent was required pursuant to the Royal Marriages Act, finally agreed to the marriage, which took place on 23 July 1885.

She fell in love with Miguel Primo de Rivera y Sáenz de Heredia, the youngest son of Miguel Primo de Rivera, who served as Prime Minister of Spain from 1923 to January 1930 with dictatorial powers. They were seen taking horse rides together, but a marriage between them was out of the question. When the dictator found out about their romance, he sent his son abroad. Because Beatriz and her sister could be carriers of hemophilia, like their mother, King Alphonso XIII was reluctant to follow the tradition of finding husbands for them among Catholic royal princes. The two sisters' constant companions were their cousins Alvaro, Alonso and Ataúlfo de Orleans y Borbón, the three sons of Infante Alfonso de Orleans y Borbón. It was expected that Infanta Beatriz would marry Alonso and Maria Cristina, Alvaro, but nothing came out of it as their companionship was interrupted when the turbulent political situation in Spain derailed their lives. In 1931 the Spanish royals went into exile. Beatriz and her sister eventually settled in Rome. On 14 January 1935 she married Italian aristocrat, Alessandro Torlonia, 5th Prince di Civitella-Cesi (7 December 1911 – 1 May/12 May 1986). Don Alessandro and Infanta Beatriz had four children. Among their grandchildren is Sibilla Weiller (12 June 1968) who married Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg on 8 September 1994.


Princess Beatrice Bhadrayuvadi (Thai: บีเอตริศภัทรายุวดี; RTGS: Bi-e-trit Phatthrayuwadi)(5 December 1876 – 30 September 1913), was a Princess of Siam (later Thailand). She was a member of Siamese Royal Family. She is a daughter of Chulalongkorn.
Her name was given by her father, King Chulalongkorn, in honour of British Queen Victoria's daughter, The Princess Beatrice. Her mother was The Noble Consort (Chao Chom Manda) Saeng Galyanamitra (daughter of Phraya Jayavichit, son of Chao Phraya Nikara Bodindra (To) who built Galyanamitra Temple. Princess Beatrice Bhadrayuvadi had 3 full siblings; 2 elder brothers and 1 younger sister. Princess Beatrice Bhadrayuvadi died 30 September 1913 at age of only 36.


Princess Beatrice Leopoldine Victoria of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (20 April 1884 – 13 July 1966) was a member of the British royal family, a male-line granddaughter of Queen Victoria. Her father was Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, the second son of Queen Victoria and Albert, Prince Consort. Her mother was Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia, the only surviving daughter of Alexander II of Russia and Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine. She was called "Baby Bee" by her family. In 1902, Princess Beatrice had a romance with Russian Grand Duke Michael, the younger brother of Tsar Nicholas II, and at that time the heir presumptive to the Imperial Throne. She began receiving letters from him in September 1902 and, although he was a Russian Grand Duke and she now a German Princess, they corresponded in English, and he nicknamed her "Sima". However she was prevented from marrying the Grand Duke as the Russian Orthodox Church forbade the marriage of first cousins. Although such marriages had been allowed previously in the House of Romanov (Grand Duchess Catherine Pavlovna, whose hand was denied to Napoleon I, was twice allowed to wed first cousins; her descendants became the Russian branch of the Dukes of Oldenburg), the devout Nicholas II, official head of Russia's church, refused to relax the rules for the sake of his brother. In November 1903, Michael wrote to Beatrice telling her that he could not marry her. The situation was aggravated by a letter Beatrice then received from her elder sister Victoria Melita ("Ducky"), in which Michael was blamed for having callously initiated the doomed romance (when, a couple of years later Ducky, having divorced her first cousin Ernest Louis, Grand Duke of Hesse, was told that remarriage to another first cousin, Grand Duke Kirill Vladimirovich, would likewise be forbidden by the Tsar, she refused to take no for an answer; the couple eloped into exile). The humiliated Beatrice was sent to Egypt to recover from heartbreak, but pined and wrote reproachful letters to Michael until 1905.  It was at the wedding of her cousin Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg and Alfonso XIII of Spain in 1906, that Beatrice met a cousin of King Alfonso, Alfonso de Orleans y Borbón (12 November 1886 – 10 August 1975), Infante of Spain, 5th Duke of Galliera.The Spanish government objected to an infante's proposed match with a British Princess who, unlike Queen Victoria Eugenie, had not agreed to convert to Roman Catholicism: the King was obliged to make clear that, should the wedding take place, the couple would have to live in exile. Nonetheless, Beatrice and Alfonso married in a Roman Catholic and Lutheran ceremony at Coburg on 15 July 1909. The couple settled in Coburg until, in 1912, Alfonso and Beatrice were allowed to return to Spain and his rank of Infante was restored. In August 1913, Beatrice was received into the Roman Catholic Church. During King Alfonso XIII's unhappy marriage, he had numerous affairs and dalliances, some of which produced illegitimate children. He allegedly also made advances toward Princess Beatrice, which she rebuffed. The King expelled her and her husband from Spain, under the pretext of sending Infante Alfonso on a mission to Switzerland. At the same time, the King's circle of friends, who despised both Beatrice and Queen Ena, started to spread malicious rumours, saying that Beatrice had been expelled because of her bad behaviour, which was not true. The couple had three sons.

Donna Beatriz de Orléans-Borbón y Parodi-Delfino (27 April 1943), daughter of Infante Álvaro, Duke of Galliera (20 April 1910  – 22 August 1997) and Carla Parodi-Delfino (1909-2000).

Hartmann seems like a surprisingly modern name to be from nearly 750 years ago!

Hartmann von und zu Liechtenstein, Fürst, III (09 February 1613-11 February 1686)

Hartmann von und zu Liechtenstein, II (06 May 1544 - 05 October 1585)

And I assume there has also been a Hartmann von und zu Liechtenstein, I sometime and somewhere.


Hartmann I (1160–1240) was the Count of Württemberg. Hartmann I and his brother Ludwig III both called themselves “Count of Württemberg”, at the time, so it is assumed that they administered the county together. Both were sons of Count Ludwig II. Hartmann accompanied Otto IV to Rome for his coronation as Holy Roman Emperor and served repeatedly as a witness in documents set up by the emperor in Italy. After the election of Frederick II of Swabia as king and emperor, Hartmann and his brother switched their support to Frederick and later supported his eventual successor Henry VII. Around 1200, Hartmann married the heiress to the county of Veringen in Upper Swabia, thus acquiring lands including Altshausen, Burg Alt-Veringen and the county of eastern Apphagaues.


Hartmann I. (first mentioned 1237; † October 4  1280 ) was the first count of Grüningen. He comes from the House of Württemberg and is the founder of the independent line of those von Grüningen, named after Grüningen, a current district of Riedlingen. Hartmann was first mentioned in 1237 together with his grandfather Hartmann I. von Württemberg.


Hartmann II. Von Grüningen (* before 1225) was a Count of Württemberg who was enfeoffed as a Reichssturmfähnrich ("Signifer Imperii") with the Burgraviate and the city of Grüningen, today Markgröningen. Together with Ulrich I of Württemberg, he had placed himself in the service of the Pope and the opposing kings to take away the Swabian ducal dignity and their royal estates in the Swabian lowlands from the Hohenstaufen. He wanted to develop Grüningen, which the Staufers had elevated to the status of an imperial city, into his royal residence. Ulrich pursued the same goal with Stuttgart.


Hartmann III. von Grüningen (* before 1252; † October 4, 1280), came from the Grüningen-Landau sideline of the House of Württemberg. His parents were Count Hartmann II von Grüningen and an unknown first wife. Hartmann III. From 1275 onwards he fought in vain against King Rudolf von Habsburg's “revision policy”, died after years of conflict in prison on the Asperg and was buried like his father in their new church and burial place in Grüningen. The decline of this young Württemberg dynasty began with his death.


There is a hypothesis that there were father, son and grandchildren, all of whom were called Hartmann von Grüningen and that modern historical research wrongly combined them into one person, the father Hartmann I. von Grüningen. The present article about Hartmann II. Therefore contradicts the article about Hartmann I. von Grüningen. The article on Hartmann III is also based on the assumption of the three Hartmanns. from Grüningen.


Georg Hartmann von Liechtenstein (1911–1988) Son of Alois von und zu Liechtenstein (1869–1955) Married Marie Christine of Württemberg (* 1924)

Birgitta is the Swedish and Icelandic form of the Irish Gaelic female name Brighid. Brighid or Brigid was the name of an ancient Celtic goddess, and its English form is Bridget. Birgitta and its alternate forms Birgit and Britta became common names in Scandinavia because of St. Bridget of Sweden.

Princess Birgitta of Sweden, Princess of Hohenzollern (Birgitta Ingeborg Alice)(19 January 1937) is an elder sister of King Carl XVI Gustaf. She is the second child of Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and a granddaughter of King Gustaf VI Adolf. Her sisters are Princess Margaretha, Mrs. Ambler, Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld, and Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson. She is a first cousin of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. On 15 December 1960, her engagement to Prince Johann Georg of Hohenzollern (31 July 1932 – 2 March 2016), was announced. The couple married in 1961. Of her marriage, she had three children: Carl (b. 1962), Désirée (b. 1963), and Hubertus (b. 1966). She and her children were passed over for succession to the Swedish throne when subsequent absolute primogeniture was established in Sweden in 1979 and 1980, and then only included her brother's descendants and her uncle Prince Bertil. Prince Johann Georg and Princess Birgitta separated in 1990, although they remained legally married. She lived on the island of Majorca in Spain, while her husband lived in Munich. He died in 2016.


Birgit is a female given name, a short form of Birgitta and ultimately a Germanic form of the Gaelic name Bridget.

Brigitte is a feminine given name.

The couple have four children.

Mathilde Laetitia Wilhelmine Bonaparte, Princesse Française, Princess of San Donato (27 May 1820 – 2 January 1904), was a French princess and salonnière. She was a daughter of Napoleon's brother Jérôme Bonaparte and his second wife, Catharina of Württemberg, daughter of King Frederick I of Württemberg. She was originally engaged to her first cousin, the future Napoleon III of France, but the engagement was broken following his imprisonment at Ham. She married a rich Russian nobleman, Anatoly Nikolaievich Demidov, 1st Prince of San Donato, on November 1, 1840 in Rome. Anatole was raised to the station of Prince by Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany shortly before the wedding to fulfill the wishes of Mathilde's father and to preserve Mathilde's station as Princess. Anatole's princely title was never recognised in Russia. They had no children. The marriage between these two strong and prominent personalities was stormy. Prince Demidov insisted on keeping his lover, Valentine de St Aldegonde, which of course was fiercely resisted by Mathilde. In 1846, Mathilde fled the household for Paris with her new lover Émilien de Nieuwerkerke and with Anatole's jewelry. The jewelry constituted the dowry that Anatole was forced to bankroll for his father-in-law so it formed the property of Anatole.

She was an elder sister of the Kingdom of Saxony's last king, Frederick Augustus III of Saxony. As a young girl, Mathilde was quiet and gentle, but she was not especially good-looking. Her father, George of Saxony, had planned a marriage between Mathilde and Archduke Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, Hungary, and Bohemia, however Rudolf rejected this arrangement and instead married Princess Stéphanie of Belgium. It was then agreed that Mathilde would marry a nephew of Emperor Franz Joseph I and the presumptive heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand. However, Franz Ferdinand rejected this arrangement. Dynastic relations between the Saxon royal family and the Habsburgs were once again strained when Franz Ferdinand chose to marry (morganatically) Sophie, Countess Chotek von Wognin. Relations between the two nations improved only when Mathilde's younger sister Maria Josepha married her second cousin, Archduke Otto Franz of Austria. Mathilde became embittered by these rejections and turned critical and waspish; she also turned to alcohol to ease her unhappiness, acquiring the nickname "Schnapps-Mathilde" for obvious reasons. She made life difficult for other members of the royal family, and as a consequence was the least popular of the family by a wide margin among the people of Saxony. Mathilde died unmarried on 27 March 1933 at the age of 70.

Various candidates were rumored to be engaged to Princess Mathilde at different times. These included, in 1896, the Prince of Naples, but he married Princess Elena of Montenegro later that year. Others included Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and Jaime, Duke of Madrid.

The archduchess had put on a gauze dress to go to the theatre. Before leaving for the theatre, she wanted to smoke a cigarette but shortly thereafter her father, who had forbidden smoking, approached her, and she hid the cigarette behind her dress, immediately setting light to its very flammable material and giving her second and third-degree burns.
