WHO WAS HENRIETTE'S HUSBAND?
Henriette's husband, Ludwig, also called Louis, was the brother of King Friedrich I von Württemberg. He first served in the Prussian military and later in the Russian military, before becoming field marshal of the Württemberg cavalry. Even at a young age, Ludwig enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle. A first marriage to a rich Polish aristocrat only supported him for a short while. At their wedding, Henriette knew nothing about her groom's financial problems.
