The necklace of Stephanie de Beauharnais went to her granddaughter Marie of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, countess of Flanders. She left it to her daughter and the necklace was sold a few years ago. |
The countess of Flanders did leave the pearl tiara of Stephanie de Beauharnais to her granddaughter Marie-José. This piece was sold by Marie-Gabrielle of Savoy recently.
: The marquise of Chaponay is a
: "feminine-line" descendant of
: Stephanie GD of Baden and so the necklace
: passed on to her, the mother having
: bequeathed it to her daughter in each
: generation. And the marquise is a first
: cousin of King Leopold father of GD
: Josephine Charlotte. There is the connection
: but not by the last GD of Baden.
