KEIZERIN AUGUSTE VIKTORIA

EMPRESS AUGUSTE VIKTORIA

huis-doorn-PRINSES-AUGUSTE-VICTORIA

Auguste Viktoria von Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg (October 22 1858 – 11 April 1921) was the first wife of Emperor Wilhelm II and the last German Empress and Queen of Prussia. When she came to the Netherlands in November 1918 she was already in bad health. Von Ilsemann (Wilhelm II’s personal aide) and his wife Elisabeth Bentinck, regularly wrote of their worries for the Empress’ health. They also described her as a very friendly and sensitive person. She died in 1921 at the age of 62, only shortly after she and Wilhelm II moved to Doorn. She is buried  in the Antikentempel in Potsdam.
