The details

Countess Johanna Sophia of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (born 16 December 1673 in Langenburg; died: 18 August 1743 in Hagen) was a German noblewoman by birth and by marriage Countess of Schaumburg-Lippe.

Johanna Sophia was the sixth daughter of Count Henry Frederick of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and his second wife Dorothea Juliana Countess of Castell-Remlingen. Besides her beauty, she was also a clever and apt pupil.

Marriage and issue

On 4 January 1691 in Langenburg Johanna Sophie married Count Frederick Christian of Schaumburg-Lippe (1655–1728). Early in their marriage, she was allowed to accompany her husband, who travelled a great deal, but later was left behind more often. When disagreements erupted between Johanna Sophie and her husband, she moved with her two sons to Hanover. The marriage ended in divorce in 1723, and two years later Frederick Christian married his mistress, Maria Anna von Gall. From the couple had the following children:

  • Frederick August (1693–1694)
  • Wilhelm Ludwig (1695-1695)
  • Sophie Charlotte (1697-1697)
  • Philip (1697–1698)
  • Albert Wolfgang (1699–1748), Count of Schaumburg-Lippe 1728-1748
  • Frederick Charles Louis (1702–1776)

Later life

Johanna Sophia became friends with the Electoral Princess Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach (1683–1737), later wife of King George II and accompanied her to the United Kingdom. The Countess was a Lady-in-waiting at the English court of the Kings of Hanover in London.
