Princess of Sweden Sofia Albertina


Swedish princess and the last Princess-Abbess of Quedlinburg Abbey, who as such reigned as vassal monarch of the Holy Roman Empire.

Sophia Albertina was the daughter of King Adolf Frederik of Sweden and Louisa Ulrika of Prussia. She was thus a princess of Sweden, a princess of Holstein-Gottorp and a sister to Gustav III of Sweden. She was a member of the Accademia di San Luca. When her brother Carl XIII of Sweden and the rest of the royal family also became Norwegian royalty in 1814, that did not include Sophia Albertina who then officially was called Royal Princess (of no country).

She was given her two names as namesake of her two grandmothers: the Prussian Queen Sophia Dorothea of Hanover and Margravine Albertina Frederica of Baden-Durlach.

She died on 17 March 1829, aged 75, in Stockholm.

(Berlin 18. Oct. Yesterday, the courier of the king of Stockholm, in the town of Falkenberg, delivered the news that the Queen of Sweden, on the 9th of this month at 6 o'clock in the evening, had been delivered of a Princess). Wikipedia gives 8 October, no source.
