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.
