La Marquise Geneviève de Chaponay is the Duchess of Vendome’s daughter. |
The Duchess of Vendome is King Albert I’s sister.
If this turquoises came back to Belgium and afterwards to Luxembourg is an interesting find ! Thanks
: 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.

: Could the last grand duchess of Baden have

: marquise of Chaponay and the GD Josephine.
