Princess Louise Auguste of Denmark
Louise Auguste of Denmark, Duchess of Augustenborg or Louise Augusta, (7 July 1771 – 13 January 1843) was a Danish princess, officially daughter of King Christian VII of Denmark and Queen Caroline Mathilde. Unofficially it is widely accepted that her natural father was Johann Friedrich Struensee, the king’s royal physician and de facto regent of the country at the time of her birth. She was referred to sometimes as "la petite Struensee"; this did not, however, have any effect on her position.

Scenella is an extinct genus generally classified as a mollusc; it has been aligned with the gastropods, monoplacophorans, and helcionellids, although a firm association with either class has not been established. An affinity with the hydrozoa (as a flotation device) has been considered, although some authors oppose this hypothesis.
