Victoria, Empress of Germany and Queen of Prussia (1840-1901), Consort of Frederick III, German Emperor, King of Prussia; daughter of Queen Victoria

Sitter associated with 112 portraits
Victoria married Prince Frederick William of Prussia in 1858. The Queen and Prince Albert hoped that Victoria's marriage to the future King of Prussia would cement close ties between London and Berlin, and possibly lead to the emergence of a unified and liberal Germany. After the three wars of German unification (1864-71), the victorious princes of the North German Confederation proclaimed a German Empire with King William I of Prussia as the hereditary German Emperor. On his death in 1888, his son Prince Frederick ascended the throne and Victoria adopted the title The German Empress. He died later that year, after which she was known as The Empress Frederick.
