An interesting account of Gertrud Falkenstein published shortly after her death. She was married in 1822 or 1823 to an army officer Karl Michael Lehmann and shortly after the marriage she met Friedrich Wilhelm. Her husband Karl Lehmann apparently was induced by Friedrich Wilhelm with a sum of the equivalent of £15,000 pounds to divorce his wife Gertrud.

45.4142 Landgrave Friedrich Wilhelm of Hesse-Cassel 1854 1888         Friedrich Wilhelm died at sea en route from Batavia to Singapore. It was reported in the Singapore Free Press 16 October 1888 the Landgrave of Hesse had been suffering from the intense heat whilst in Batavia and it was decided he and his suite should proceed to Singapore. The Landgrave retired to bed on 13 October and his servant checked on him a couple of times in the early hours of the following day and found he was asleep in his bed. However when a further check was made early afternoon the Landgrave's bed was empty and there was no sign of him even though his servant was in attendance at his door during the night. It was concluded the Landgrave perhaps from delirium had climbed through the port hole and dropped into the sea. It would appear his body was never found.
Another report suggested a temporary insanity caused by the heat led to his death by suicide.
