Even in her lifetime, Louise of Prussia was worshipped like a saint. Young, beautiful, graceful and unpretentious, she helped make the Prussian dynasty so popular and brought a female touch to the Hohenzollern state.
She placed her charm and intelligence at the service of her husband, King Frederick William III. His indecisiveness during the Napoleonic Wars forced Louise to become politically active. It was Queen Louise rather than her husband whom the French emperor accused of warmongering.
