Princess Marie of Prussia, full name Marie Elisabeth Louise Frederika of Prussia (14 September 1855, Marmorpalais, Potsdam - 20 June 1888, Dresden), was a princess of the house of Hohenzollern. She was the daughter of Prince Frederick Charles of Prussia and later became second wife of Prince Henry of the Netherlands then the first wife of Prince Albert of Saxe-Altenburg. She was also the great-niece of Wilhelm I, German Emperor.

Princess Marie was the eldest daughter of Prussian field-marshal Prince Frederick Charles of Prussia (1828–1885) and his wife, Princess Maria Anna of Anhalt-Dessau (1837–1906). Marie's mother was the youngest daughter of Leopold IV, Duke of Anhalt and Princess Friederike of Prussia.

On 23 August 1878 Princess Marie married Prince Henry of Orange-Nassau at the Neuen Palais (1820–1879), who had since 1850 been governor of Luxembourg and Admiralleutnant zur See. He was the third son of the King William II of the Netherlands and his wife Grand Duchess Anna Pavlovna of Russia. The marriage between Marie and Henry was arranged in an attempt to save the House of Orange-Nassau from extinction. Unfortunately, it was to prove childless: barely five months later, in January 1879, Prince Henry died after contracting measles.

Six years later, on 6 May 1885, Princess Marie married Prince Albert of Saxe-Altenburg in Berlin (1843–1902), a son of Prince Edward and his second wife, Princess Luise Caroline Reuss-Greiz. This marriage was to all reports a harmonious one and produced two children:

 Olga Elisabeth (1886–1955) ∞ 1913 Carl Friedrich von Pückler-Burghauss (1886–1945)
 Marie (1888–1947) ∞ 1911–1920 Prince Heinrich XXXV von Reuss (1887–1936)

The princess died in 1888 from the effects of puerperal fever and was buried in the Saxe-Altenburg family vault. Her second husband remarried in 1891 to Duchess Helene of Mecklenburg-Strelitz in Remplin (1857–1936), a niece of grand-duke Friedrich Wilhelm, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, and granddaughter of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich of Russia

Princess Marie was godmother to her nephew Prince Arthur of Connaught, only son of her sister Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia. The christening occurred in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

The NEW Gallery

The NEW Gallery

Welcome to The NEW Gallery!
This group was inspired by the original Gallery which was run by SylviaAst and Su Zany http://www.polyvore.com/gallery/group.show?id=82286
Unfortunately, this group has closed, but we shared the idea to open a NEW Gallery where every member can have a personal Polyvore art show!
 
This group offers wonderful weekly Art Exhibitions showcasing ONE MEMBER’s sets at a time in the format of a contest. Everyone is welcome to submit art sets to the group, but, please be respectful and do not enter them into another person’s Art Show / contest (banishment from group and no Show of your own is the consequence). Please let the featured artist know how much you enjoyed their show and don’t forget to vote for your 12 favorites each week!
 
We will invite group members and other Polyvore artists to feature their absolute best work in a showcase of their ART, FASHION or INTERIOR DESIGN sets for a week. If you would like to have your very own Art Exhibition, please let the moderator know.

------------ For those interested in having an Art Show at the NEW Gallery ------------
 
Once we have acknowledged that you are interested in being showcased, the next step is to send us a short biography (bio) AND ALSO a title for your exhibition. It's your show, select something that you believe represents your art!
 
It will be published when your Art Show is set up. Share anything that you want the Polyvore family to know about you when they view your art. Polyvore now limits the space for your bio to 300 spaces or about 55 words, so it must be short.

The next step is for you to send us one http: link for a set that you wish to have published with your bio - the POSTER of the contest.
 
After receiving your bio and http: link, we will give you the dates of the week that your Art Show will be held. On the beginning date of your Exhibition, we will set up a contest with Your Name, bio and link---this is Your Art Show! During the first 3 days of your Art Show / contest, you submit your fabulous creations. You get to choose what we will see!

Submit A MAXIMUM OF 45 YOUR SETS.
 
In the case when someone has accidentally submitted their sets to your Art Show, let one of the moderators know and we will try to remove their sets.
 
The last 4 days of your Art Show is for everyone to browse through your Exhibit and vote on their favorite 12 sets.
 
No matter what people vote for—You win!
