Short biography
Princess Marie of Liechtenstein was born Marie Henriette Adelaide in Paris, France. At her baptism, her mother's name was given as Victoire Magny, but her father was unidentified. When Marie was three months old, she was left as a foundling. A physician arranged for her to be adopted by Henry Fox, 4th Baron Holland, and his wife Augusta, who had no children of their own. She arrived at her new parents' imposing London home, Holland House, in 1853, and grew up as "Mary Fox," unaware of her background. It was revealed to her around her 18th birthday by Lady Holland. In 1871, she spent the winter in Naples, where she was courted by Prince Louis (Aloys) of Liechtenstein. They were married in 1872 and although the House of Liechtenstein initially refused to approve the marriage on the grounds of inequality of birth, Princess Marie was later accepted. They couple had four daughters. In 1874, she published a two-volume book on the history of Holland House and its splendid art treasures. Her portrait, which appeared on the cover, was painted by George Frederic Watts. She also translated German literature into English. She died at age 28.
