Biography[edit]

Olga was the youngest daughter of Ernest Augustus, Crown Prince of Hanover (1845–1923) and Princess Thyra of Denmark (1853–1933), the youngest daughter of Christian IX of Denmark (1818–1906) and Louise of Hesse-Kassel (1817–1898). Olga was a great-great-granddaughter of George III of the United Kingdom (1738–1820) and Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1744–1818).

Princess Olga resided with her family at Gmunden and remained unmarried throughout her life. In 1958, shortly before Olga's death, her nephew Ernest Augustus IV, Prince of Hanover and his wife Princess Ortrud of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg named their second eldest daughter after her. Olga died of natural causes at her home, Hubertihaus, near Gmunden on 21 September 1958.
