    03/08/2022 · Princess Maud of Fife, the Countess of Southesk, had the reputation of being one of the shyest members of the Royal Family, and was rarely seen in public. She encountered a peculiar incident when one day, the reticent princess received a mysterious ring, which may (or may not) have saved her life.

    Alice was born on 25 April 1843 at Buck­ing­ham Palace in Lon­don. She was chris­tened "Alice Maud Mary" in the pri­vate chapel at Buck­ing­ham Palace by The Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury, William How­ley, on 2 June 1843. Her sex was greeted with mixed feel­ings from the pub­lic, and even the Privy Coun­cil sent a mes­sage to Al­bert ex­press­ing its...

    Suitors

    Alice's mat­ri­mo­nial plans were begun in 1860 by her mother. Queen Vic­to­ria had ex­pressed her wish that her chil­dren should marry for love, but this did not mean that her choice of suit­ors would nec­es­sar­ily be ex­tended to any­body out­side the royal houses of Eu­rope. Rais­ing a British sub­ject to roy­alty, how­ever high their rank, was po­lit­i­cally ob­jec­tion­able, and also wasted any op­por­tu­nity for a use­ful for­eign alliance. The Queen in­structed her daugh­ter Vic­to­ri...

    Engagement and wedding

    Alice was en­gaged to Prince Louis of Hesse on 30 April 1861, fol­low­ing the Queen's consent. The Queen per­suaded the Prime Min­is­ter, Lord Palmer­ston, to vote Alice a dowry of £30,000 (£2.82 mil­lion as of 2021). Al­though the amount was con­sid­ered gen­er­ous at the time, Prince Al­bert re­marked that "she will not be able to do great things with it" in the lit­tle realm of Hesse, com­pared to the riches that her sis­ter Vic­to­ria would in­herit as fu­ture Queen of Prus­sia and Ger­ma...

    Settling in Darmstadt

    Alice and Louis ar­rived at Bin­gen on 12 July 1862 and were greeted by cheer­ing crowds gath­ered in spite of pour­ing rain. After being in­tro­duced to town of­fi­cials, they took a train to Mainz, where they had break­fast, be­fore tak­ing a steamer along the Rhine to Gus­tavs­burg. From there, they took a train to Darm­stadt, where they were greeted with great enthusiasm. Alice wrote back to her mother that "I be­lieve the peo­ple never gave so hearty a welcome", while her sis­ter He­lena...

    Austro-Prussian War

    In 1866, Aus­tria called for Prus­sia to hand over ad­min­is­tra­tion of Schleswig-Hol­stein, which had until that point been jointly ad­min­is­tered by the two pow­ers, to the Duke of Au­gusten­berg. Prus­sia re­fused, and Otto von Bis­marck sent troops into Aus­trian-ad­min­is­tered Hol­stein. This pro­voked war be­tween Aus­tria and Prus­sia, with Hesse sid­ing with the Aus­tri­ans, tech­ni­cally mak­ing Alice and her sis­ter Vic­to­riaen­e­mies. Alice, heav­ily preg­nant with her third ch...

    Religious beliefs

    Alice de­vel­oped a friend­ship with the the­olo­gian David Friedrich Strauss. He was a con­tro­ver­sial fig­ure at the time; in 1835, he pub­lished The Life of Jesus, which ar­gued that the mir­a­cles of Jesus were non­fac­tual myths and that the Bible could not be lit­er­ally in­ter­preted as God's word, a view akin to heresy in or­tho­dox circles. Alice's view was sim­i­lar to Strauss's, and she be­lieved that con­tem­po­rary Vic­to­rian so­ci­ety was pre­sent­ing God in a way that would b...

    Tragedy be­fell Alice on 29 May 1873, when her youngest and favourite son, Friedrich, called "Frit­tie", died after falling 20 feet from a window. The child suf­fered from haemophilia, and al­though he re­gained con­scious­ness, the in­ter­nal bleed­ing could not be stopped. Alice never re­cov­ered from Frit­tie's death, writ­ing to her mother two ...

    In No­vem­ber 1878, the Grand Ducal house­hold fell ill with diph­the­ria. Alice's el­dest daugh­ter Vic­to­ria was the first to fall ill, com­plain­ing of a stiff neck in the evening of 5 No­vem­ber. Diph­the­ria was di­ag­nosed the fol­low­ing morn­ing, and soon the dis­ease spread to Alice's chil­dren Alix, Marie, Irene, and Ernest. Her hus­band...

    Alice founded the Al­ice-Hos­pi­tal in Darm­stadt in 1869, to treat the city's sick and wounded. The or­gan­i­sa­tion con­tin­ued to flour­ish long after Alice's death, and in 1953, her grand­son Louis, Earl Mount­bat­ten of Burma gave a lec­ture on the hos­pi­tal. He spoke highly of Alice, say­ing "[for her] the point of de­par­ture al­ways re­mai...
