Marriage and childrenEdit
Elisabeth married Prince William of Baden on 16 October 1830. Ten years older than she was, he was the second son of Charles Frederick, Grand Duke of Baden and his second wife Luise Karoline Geyer von Geyersberg. Due to the low birth rank of his mother, William had no succession rights for a time to the Grand Duchy of Baden (until his brother succeeded as Leopold I, Grand Duke of Baden earlier that year).
Elisabeth and William had issue:
- Princess Wilhelmine Pauline Henriette Amalie Louise (May 7, 1833 – August 7, 1834).
- Princess Sophie Pauline Henriette Amalie Louise (August 7, 1834 – April 6, 1904), married Woldemar, Prince of Lippe on November 9, 1858.
- Princess Pauline Sophie Elisabeth Marie (December 18, 1835 – May 15, 1891).
- Princess Leopoldine Wilhelmine Pauline Amalie Maximiliane (February 22, 1837 – December 23, 1903), married Hermann VI, Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg on September 24, 1862.
William died on 11 October 1859. Elisabeth would die five years later, on 5 December 1864.
