Happening in 1837 to be at Etschmiadzin, in Russian Armenia, at the house of the Katholicos (Armenian Pope), where I was well received, he at each repast invariably placed either a Turkish or Provence Rose on my plate. The most select Turkish Roses then were the Sultan, Maheca, the Rose of Sérail, King of Persia, &c.

´Violacea´ we have produce many hips, maybe that´s why so many different roses under this name.

Naasra, can you please post your photos of the Sangerhausen rose under 'Belle Sultane (hybrid alpina)', although this name might also be incorrect.

Sorry, I didn't realise that there actually is a 'Belle Sultane', Hybrid Alpina, here on HMF. I've posted the pictures there now, so you could delete this if it is possible.

I believe that Mahaeca and Violacea are not identical roses. At least at the Rosarium Sangerhausen, Germany, there exist serveral plants of a rose called Mahaeca, which are definitely different from Violacea.
In the Northern part of Germany, the same rose was shown to me in several gardens, where the owners told me that this is 'Violacea Major'.

Yes, 'Maheca' was the name given to several different roses or even rose types (velvet roses). This has not been sorted out yet.
