Princess Helena (1846-1923), known as 'Lenchen', was the middle child and middle daughter of Queen Victoria.  She was very athletic as a teenager, often besting her older brothers.  Starting in her 30s, her health worsened and she overcame an addiction to laudanum in 1894.  She married the much-older Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein in 1866.  It was a happy marriage and she became the first in her family to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary.  They had 5 children.
