She who pwns people with history

The monument dedicated to Princess Alice of the United Kingdom, and her daughter Princess Marie, by sculptor Joseph Boehm. It was erected at the Grand Ducal mausoleum at Rosenhöhe, where they were buried after an outbreak of diphtheria swept through the family and the vast majority of them became severely ill. Only Alice and little Marie, who was known as May and just four years old at the time, would pass away from the disease.

The monument shows Alice lying with her daughter in her arms, holding on to her hand.
