Margravine Sophia Dorothea Of Brandenburg-Schwedt
Friederike of Brandenburg-Schwedt (Friederike Sophia Dorothea; 18 December 1736 – 9 March 1798) was Duchess of Württemberg (now in Germany) and ancestor to many European royals of the 19th and 20th century.
Famous quotes containing the word dorothea:
“What sought they thus afar?
Bright jewels of the mine?
The wealthy of seas, the spoils of war?
They sought a faiths pure shrine!
Ay, call it holy ground,
The soil where first they trod;
They have left unstained what there they found,
Freedom to worship God.”
—Felicia Dorothea Hemans (17831835)
