This article discusses the 1928 marriage of Margarete von Wrangell (1877-1932) to her childhood friend, Prince Vladimir Andronikov. Von Wrangell was a Balkan German duchess, agricultural chemist, and the first female full professor at a German university. In 1909, she received her doctoral degree in chemistry from the University of Tübingen and worked for several years in plant sciences at the University of Hohenheim. Von Wrangell's significant scientific contributions only became well-known after her death upon the publication of her biography in 1935. Since then, von Wrangell's influence as a woman scientist and feminist figure has been studied in the fields of Women's Studies and Gender Studies.
