In advance to this blog a Landgravine is the wife of a Landgrave (one who has control over a territory) who pursuits tasks in the office or holds the rank in her own right. Iv never heard of this word, but it is interesting though and the picture that appeared for its search oh! I love it. The formal-looking woman in the old photo is Princess Elizabeth. In 1820 Prince Frederick, Elizabeth's husband took over his father as the landgrave of Hesse-Homburg in Germany. Well Elizabeth, as a new pronounced Landgravine could escape the "rigid court etiquette" in England and "find herself".
