    Princess Margarethe of Prussia - later Landgräfin von Hessen Kassel

    Recommended Posts

    Dear forumites,


    Margarethe was the sister of Kaiser II and the daughter of Fredrich III. She was later the wife of Landgraph Friedrich Karl of Hessen. Here below you can view a picture of her, quite faded, wearing the uniform of Füsilier Regiment von Gersdorff (Kurhessisches) Nr. 80.

    Now my question is: what kind of decorations does she wear on medal bar on the uniform of Commander in Chief (Oberst) of the above mentioned Prussian regiment?


    Thanks in advance for your much appreciated inputs and information.
