Description

    Empress Victoria of Germany, Autograph Note Signed, as Princess Royal of the United Kingdom, one page written on front, 4.5" x 7", on notepaper embossed with the Royal Arms featuring the shields of both Great Britain and the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, December 1, 1849, Osborne. Two original folds, else near fine. Sold with a cabinet card, 4" x 8", of Victoria dated Feb. 87. The cabinet card is trimmed at the top.
    The note is actually a receipt, "Received from Lt. Col. Phipps the sum of £1.0.0., my monthly allowance." It is clearly signed "Victoria" in a very mature hand for a nine-year-old girl.
    The Princess Victoria, Princess Royal (Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa) (1840-1901) was the eldest child and daughter of Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. She was created Princess Royal of the United Kingdom in 1841. She became German Empress and Queen of Prussia by marriage to German Emperor Frederick III. After her husband's death, she became widely known as Empress Frederick. She was the mother to the Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany.
