Royal Baby Names
Born to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on April 25, 1843, Princess Alice grew up to be quite the feminist. She was an early supporter of breastfeeding and brought gynecological issues to the forefront. That horrified her mother, who warned another daughter: “Don’t let Alice pump you! Be very silent and cautious about your interior!” Also known as Princess Louis and the Grande Duchess of Hess, she had seven children with her husband, Prince Louis of Hesse. Alice became an important influence on safe hospital conditions in Hesse, Germany, especially during the Austro-Prussian wars.
