You missed a couple of her titles: When she first married she was Princess Frederick William (Friedrich Wilhelm) of Prussia because her father-in-law had not yet succeeded his brother. Also, from 1871-1888 she was additionally the German Crown Princess (and an imperial highness) as well as crown princess of Prussia. Of course, through the early years of her marriage, her mother kept insisting that she insist on using her British title of Princess Royal in addition to her Prussian title, which cause much ill-will in her new country.

: were successively: Crown Princess of Prussia
: (1858-1888) then briefly Queen of Prussia
: and German empress (1888) and then, after

: Queen Victoria.
