Princess Louise of Denmark (Louise Caroline Josephine Sophie Thyra Olga) (17 February 1875 ‚Äď 4 April 1906) was the third child and oldest daughter of Frederick VIII of Denmark and his wife, Princess Louise of Sweden and Norway.

She married Prince Friedrich Georg of Schaumburg-Lippe (RatiboŇôsk√© Hory (formerly Ratiboritz,) Czech Republic, 30 January 1868 ‚Äď Kudowa-Zdr√≥j, Silesia, 12 December 1945) in Copenhagen on 5 May 1896. They had three children:

  • HSH Princess Marie Luise Dagmar Bathildis Charlotte of Schaumburg-Lippe (10 February 1897 ‚Äď 1 October 1938) She married Prince Friedrich Sigismund of Prussia and had issue. Prince Friedrich died in a riding accident after a fall from his horse.
  • HSH Prince Christian Nikolaus Wilhelm Friedrich Albert Ernst of Schaumburg-Lippe (20 February 1898 ‚Äď 13 July 1974) He married his first cousin, Princess Feodora of Denmark and had issue.
  • HSH Princess Stephanie Alexandra Hermine Thyra Xenia Bathildis Ingeborg of Schaumburg-Lippe (19 December 1899 ‚Äď 2 May 1925). She married Prince Viktor Adolf of Bentheim and Steinfurt and had two sons; Prince Alexis (30 July 1922-2 December 1943, KIA over the Mediterranean) and Prince Christian (b. 9 December 1923). Stephanie died in childbirth with twin boys. Both boys died on 2 May 1925, one stillborn, the other living only a few hours.

The marriage was an unhappy one and Princess Louise spent much time visiting her family, staying for 2 to 3 months at a time. Her father also came and visited with her each year.

The official cause of death of Princess Louise was "cerebral inflammation" caused by meningitis, after weeks of being ill. It is rumoured she attempted to drown herself in the castle lake on her husband's estate, Ratiboritz and caught a chill in the attempt, eventually leading to her death.
