Queen Louise of Prussia

Before she was the Queen Consort of Prussia and King Frederick William III's wife, she was simply known as Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Her kindness, simple and charitable nature earned her the respect and admiration of Prussia's citizens. She was even given the endearment "Queen of Hearts" by a German poet before Princess Diana was called such. Queen Louise bore 9 children - two of whom would later become ruling sovereigns, Frederick William IV of Prussia and German Emperor Wilhelm I. Due to her intelligence, compassionate, composed disposition and her unwavering support for her husband, Queen Louise was beloved by the citizens and she played a prominent role in helping secure her husband's policies and strategies. During the war against France in 1806 - 1807 and Prussia's subsequent defeat, Queen Louise met Napoleon Bonaparte to ask for more favorable peace terms for Prussia. She was unsuccessful, however Napoleon was greatly impressed by her boldness that after her death in 1810 at the ripe age of 34 he was said to have commented that King Frederick William III lost a valuable emissary.
