Hide Profile

Princess Alice (b. 25 April 1843, London, England-d. 14 December 1878, Darmstadt, German Empire) was the daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Alice's compassion for other people's suffering established her role as the family caregiver in 1861. She was married to Prince Louis of Hesse in 1862 in a private ceremony since it was soon after Prince Albert died.
