Victoria Melita of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Grand Duchess of Hesse

How it can be claimed that Victoria Melita was one of the great beauties of her era, I don't know. She has her father's Coburg look. Her sister Queen Marie of Roumania was a very beautiful, and photogenic, woman - much more deserving of the title.

I don't think a lot of her photographs do her justice. Her contemporaries often spoke of her beauty, and I thing she and Marie looked very much alike--except of course their coloring.
