German Nobility. Daughter of Landgrave Ludwig IX. von Hessen Darmstadt. She married Friedrich Wilhelm, nephew and heir of King Friedrich II, on July 14, 1769. He barely noticed her and preferred the nearness of his mistress Wilhelmine Encke. Until 1783 she became mother of 7 children which she loved and cared for. They lived with her mother at the Castle Monbijou. After her husband had succeeded Friedrich II. he married morganatically twice without getting a divorce and she had no choice but to give her approval. During the summer she lived in Bad Freienwalde where she was often visited by her children and grandchildren. (bio by: Lutetia)
