    Princess Louise Caroline Alberta was born at Buckingham Palace in London, England. She was the sixth child and fourth daughter of Queen Victoriaand Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Louise was named after her paternal grandmother, step-great-grandmother and father respectively. Her birth received little public attention because of concern that the 1848 revolutions in Europe would spread to Britain. Louise spent her childhood at royal residences including, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral Castle in Scotland and Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. Both Victoria and Albert were amateur artists, and they passed their love of drawing and painting to all nine of their children. The royal children received art lessons from Edward Corbould and later studied with sculptor Mary Thornycroft. Louise’s artistic talent and inquisitive nature stood out in her family and she was nicknamed “Little Miss Why.” There is evidence that she was dissatisfied with the education provided by her...

    On 21 March 1871, Louise married John Campbell, Marquess of Lorne. Louise was the first British princess to marry a non-royal spouse since King Henry VIII’s sister Mary married Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk in 1515. Louise’s brother, the future Edward VII, strongly objected to the match, but Queen Victoriasupported a marriage that would allow her daughter to make her home in the United Kingdom. Lorne and Louise did not have children and their relationship attracted speculation that continues to the present day. The couple, however, had shared cultural interests. Lorne enjoyed sketching, and was a prolific author and traveller who had visited Canada prior to his marriage.

    Louise focused her artistic endeavours on sculpture and exhibited her work. Her bust of her brother Prince Arthur was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1869, and her statue of Queen Victoria remains on display outside Kensington Palace. Louise’s marriage allowed her to escape the seclusion of the royal court and engage with other British artists. Lorne and Louise’s London residence became an important cultural salon. Louise’s philanthropy focused on the arts, girls’ education and aid for disadvantaged women. Louise visited The Haven in Hamilton, Ontario, which provided aid for discharged female prisoners, and gave a speech in support of the Montreal Ladies’ Educational Association in 1878. Louise encouraged women to acquire practical skills and emphasized the importance of domestic economy. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the question of women’s suffrage divided the royal family and wider society. Louise’s sister-in-law Lady Frances Balfour was a member of the Nationa...

    On the advice of British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, Lorne was appointed governor general of Canada in 1878. Prior to his appointment, Lorne was a Member of Parliament in the UK, but his position as the Queen’s son-in-law limited his activities there. The Canadian appointment offered the couple a degree of independence. They arrived in Halifax in November 1878 and then travelled by train to Ottawa, visiting Montréal and Québec Cityalong the way. In his address in Halifax, Lorne acknowledged the historic significance of Louise’s presence in Canada, stating, “Although the sons of the sovereign have before this day visited these shores, this is the first occasion on which a daughter of the reigning house has seen the New World.” A commemorative volume published in honour of the couple’s arrival ascribed great political significance to Louise’s presence in Canada, stating: “The presence of the Princess in Canada… will arrest our drifting into the Republic of the United States.” Th...

    During the 19th century, Canadian artists often left Canada to establish their reputations, exhibiting their work in the United States or Great Britain. When Louise arrived in Canada, there were provincial societies for artists, but no organizations at the national level where Canadian artists could learn from one another and exhibit their work in a Canadian context. In 1880, Lorne and Louise founded the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Both male and female artists were permitted to exhibit at the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. The Academy held its first exhibition in March 1880. Louise was convalescing from the sleigh accident and was therefore unable to attend the event, but the paintings were brought to her room for her to view privately. Louise encouraged the work of women artists during her time in Canada, visiting a display of women’s paintings at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.

    The 1880 exhibition developed into the modern National Gallery of Canada. In 1882, the gallery received its first permanent home, a remodelled builders’ workshop at the Department of Public Works on Parliament Hill. Lorne attended the opening with a large party. The initial collection consisted mostly of diploma works from the newly created Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. In keeping with Louise’s interest in promoting the careers of female artists, the Gallery displayed The Croppy Boy by Charlotte Schreiber, a Torontopainter and first female member of the Royal Society. Louise added works by female Canadian artists to her personal art collection. Louise contributed her own art to Canadian collections. Her portrait of the sculptor Henrietta Montalba is part of the collection of the National Gallery of Canada. A bronze cast of a sculpture of Queen Victoria by Louise stands near McGill University in Montréal. Her Canadian photo albums are part of the collection of Library and Archives...

    Louise was the first member of the royal family to visit British Columbia, arriving in Victoria with Lorne in 1882. The railway across Canada was not yet complete, so the couple travelled across the United States by train then by ship along the west coast to reach British Columbia. The visit had diplomatic significance because the completion of the railway was a condition for British Columbia’s entry into Confederation and there was tension regarding the location of the western terminus. The royal visit was well received by the diverse communities of Vancouver Island. The Chinese community erected a celebratory arch and delivered an address. Louise and Lorne also met with Indigenous peoples while in Canada. During his 1881 tour of the North-West Territories, Indigenous leaders described Lorne as their “great brother-in-law.” Louise shook hands with them as equals throughout her time in Canada. During her return journey from British Columbia, Louise visited the town of Pile of Bones...

    A number of Canadian military regiments were named for Louise. The 66th The Halifax Battalion of Infantry became the 66th Battalion “Princess Louise” Fusiliers in 1879. Louise became patron of Ottawa’s cavalry troop, which became the Princess Louise Dragoon Guards in 1903. In 1884, the 8th Regiment of Cavalry became the 8th Princess Louise’s New Brunswick Regiment of Cavalry.

    Louise remained engaged with Canada and Canadian institutions after departing the country at the end of Lorne’s tenure as governor general in 1883. During the North-West Resistance of 1885, Louise sent medical supplies to the Battle of Fish Creek and Batoche with instructions that assistance was to be provided for both sides. In 1882, the land that would become the province of Alberta was named for Louise. In 1905, Alberta was established as a province, retaining Louise’s name; the princess wrote to a Canadian well-wisher, “I am intensely proud of this beautiful and wonderful Province being called after me, and that my husband should have thought of it.” Louise was widowed in 1914, but maintained a busy schedule of public engagements until her death in 1939.

    In his 1884 book, Canada Under the Administration of Lord Lorne, J.E. Collins recalled: “Those who come into contact with the princess, never weary of telling that she was a true and noble woman, always desirous of doing well for her kind, eager in giving assistance to every project of art and education, not less than her husband generally interested in the progress of the people.” The province of Alberta and Lake Louise in Alberta are named for Louise. Louise’s military patronage set precedents for subsequent royal women resident in Canada including her niece, Princess Patricia (see Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry). The Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and the National Gallery of Canadaremain key Canadian cultural institutions.

  2. Princess Louise entered the world on March 18, 1848 and even from her first breaths, it was clear that she would be a troublemaker. You see, 1848 kicked off Europe’s tumultuous “Age of Revolutions”—and it seemed that the year’s rebelliousness would come through in little Princess Louise.

  3. Louise, Princess Royal and Duchess of Fife VA, CI (Louise Victoria Alexandra Dagmar; 20 February 1867 – 4 January 1931) was the third child and eldest daughter of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom; she was a younger sister of King George V.

    Born at Marlborough House in London, Princess Louise was the first daughter born after two sons in 1864 and 1865 to Alexandra, the Princess of Wales, and Edward, the Prince of Wales, son of Queen Victoria and her consort, Prince Albert. Two more sisters (Victoria and Maud) arrived over the following two years, and the three girls were known for being very active. Close in their youth, all became shyer and more withdrawn as they grew up. They were educated by governesses. In 1895, the three sisters were among the bridesmaids at the wedding of their aunt, Princess Beatrice, the youngest of Queen Victoria’s daughters. Because her father had two sons who could succeed him (a third son, Alexander John, died in infancy), Louise’s mother did not think the girls should wed and Victoria, who followed Louise, remained unmarried until her 1935 death. Nevertheless, her sister Maud a Norwegian Prince to eventually become Queen of Norway, and Louise herself married Alexander Duff, 6th Earl Fife,...

    When Princess Louise’s eldest brother, Albert Victor, died in 1892 at the age of 28, the next and only surviving brother, George, became second to Edward. Until George had legitimate offspring, this made Louise third in line for the throne, followed by her daughters. Unless marriage, death, or royal decree changed their status, they were technically commoners. In 1893, the princess hosted her brother's wedding to Mary of Teck, who had been engaged to Albert Victor. This made the succession of Louise or her daughters unlikely. She lived quite privately after her marriage. Her father succeeded Queen Victoria in 1901, ascending the throne as King Edward VII with his wife, Queen Alexandra, by his side. In 1905, the King bestowed upon Louise the title "Princess Royal," an honorific reserved—though not always given—for the eldest daughter of a reigning monarch. She was the sixth such princess so named. At the same time, her daughters were created princesses and given the title of "Highnes...

    On a trip to Egypt in December 1911, the family was shipwrecked off the Moroccan coast. The duke became ill with pleurisy and died in 1912, the very next month. Princess Louise's eldest, Alexandra, inherited his title as 2nd Duchess of Fife. She married her first cousin once removed, Prince Arthur of Connaught and Strathearn, a grandson of Queen Victoria, and thus had the title "Royal Highness." Louise’s younger daughter, Maud, became Countess of Southesk when she married Lord Charles Carnegie, 11th Earl of Southesk, and was thereafter known for most purposes as Lady Carnegie rather than Princess. Maud’s son was James Carnegie, who inherited the titles Duke of Fife and Earl of Southesk.

    Louise, the Princess Royal, died at home in London in 1931, survived by her sisters, her daughters, and her brother, the King. She was buried in St. George's Chapel, and her remains later moved to a private chapel at another of her residences, Mar Lodge in Braemar, Aberdeenshire.
