Title: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Alice of Hesse on May 09, 2006, 12:43:54 PM
I am searching this picture of Empress Elizabeth of Austria (Sisi) with her dog Shadow. I only have it in bad quality and only a part of it. Does anybody of you have it or knows in which book it is ? Can anybody post it ? I would be so happy to find it.

Yes, it's new to me too. I read somewhere that she preferred being photographed with dogs, rather than other people! So did her mother. Is this dog called Shadow, or is it a different one? Shadow has a statue at the Emperor's villa in Ischl. There are some nice dogs pictured with the Empress in Andrew Sinclair's 'Death by Fame' (1998). Countess Kleinmichel in her 'Memories of a Shipwrecked World' (1923) has a few pages on the Empress, and recalls going riding with her. She also reproduces that wonderful photo of the Empress on a couch, with Shadow at her feet.

There are a lot of pictures of Elisabeth's mother Ludovica with her dogs. But she was also photographed with her children and grandchildren, especially with her favourite granddaughter Amélie.

Sisi's mother preferred smaller dogs while Sisi liked bigger ones.  Ludovica would let her dogs come to the dinner table with her too.

The National Photo Archive of the Hungarian National Museum has it, and it was published in 2004, in a volume about the history of colour(ed) photography in Hungary. I'll try to scan it for you.

Yes, the grave is still there. Sisi buried in Gödöllö two dogs. Here is a picture of the tombstones of Shadow and Plato, the queen's favorite dogs, in the front garden.

I was there on holidays a few years ago. Today there is only the tombstone of Shadow. The picture  I posted was from a book about Gödöllö - I bought it in the museumshop. It is an old photography in black and white.

I just had a look into my book Die Habsburger - Ein biographisches Lexikon by Brigitte Hamann. In this book you can find short biographies of every Habsburg.
In fact Joseph wasn't used very often.

Emperor Joseph I. (1678-1711)
Emperor Joseph II. (1741-1790)

From the Hungarian line:
Archduke Joseph Anton (1776-1847)
Archduke Joseph Karl (1833-1905)
Archduke Joseph Ferdinand (1872-1942)
Archduke Joseph August (1872-1962)
Archduke Joseph Franz (1895-1957)

Hungariae Rex means something like King of Hungary. So the young man should be Joseph I. or Joseph II.
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Marc on April 07, 2007, 04:21:54 PM
Well,I don't think it's either Joseph I or Joseph II(sure not)...This boy must be someone from 16th or begining of the 17th century...Why else would they mention Dukes of Burgau or Counts of Tirol(Duke or Fürst von Burgau was son of Archduke Ferdinand,Count of Tirol and Philippine Welser)?

Just for comparation.Portrait of Joseph I as a child,so I really doubt that this is him on the first portrait!But,who could it be?I searched genealogy pages but was unable to find any Joseph from this period,even if he is from an illegitimate line...
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: britt.25 on April 08, 2007, 03:23:08 AM
There are different child portraits of Joseph I.  and for me he does not look like Joseph I on this portrait as well, but as there is really no other Joseph at that time ( I did not find any as well) I may really be him. Is the ebay page with that portrait still there? Or do you know the name of the seller? Sometimes the people, who sell the things, know more (not always of course) Concerning the line of the counts of Burgau (line of Ferdinand II of Tyrol) there is no Joseph as well: Ferdinand II had the sons Andreas and Karl, Karl had a son Karl and one with the name Ferdinand and daughters, and Karl again had a son Karl, but then I don´t find anymore descendants, even when I have read on a todays claimant, who says that he descends from that line! Maybe the painter included some "phantasy". I am of the opinion that it cannot be any count of Burgau, because he could never have the title of a king of Hungary, but as king of Hungary a Habsburg can have many other titles, maybe including that of Burgau as well (strange...Have to look up about the titles) Concenring the Hungary line, who descends from Joseph Anton, Palatine of Hungary (1776-1846), I don´t think it´s any of them, because it´s almost impossible that kind of art in the 18th and 19th century, they all look different as well.  Maybe it´s really Joseph I as very young man, when he was only king of Hungary, when when I think the features do not really fit, but sometimes the artists work with too much freedom... very strange. I little it reminds me of the spanish line (illeg. son of Philipp IV) or his brothers, but of course that´s impossible as well, but at least it´s from that time!
Has anyone got other ideas or remembers anyone the name of the seller?
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: umigon on April 08, 2007, 07:31:26 AM
He certainly has the Habsburg features of the 17th century. I don't think there's any other possibility except for the young man to be Joseph I.
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: dboro on April 19, 2007, 09:28:56 AM
I agree. I think there's no other possibility. The portrait itself suggest the 17th century, Joseph I. became King of Hungary in 1687, at the age of 9, so it looks OK. On the other hand, this portrait is quite mediocre (or worse), so I shouldn't care about resemblance.
Anyhow, one more portrait:

Post by: britt.25 on April 20, 2007, 05:55:20 AM
Strange is that on the picture the "Habsburg lip" of Joseph is too much in opinion. He did not have it that much. It is well known (I know different descriptions of Joseph I in books) and it is always said that he was not that "Habsburg" and very different also in looks from his brother emperor Karl VI. He really did not have that Habsburg mouth like on the anonymous portrait (You see the difference very well on the other two posted portraits) After the long time of family marriages (Leopold had already lost two wives, who were closely related to him, when he married Eleonore from Pfalz Neuburg...) there was finally "new blood" in the family. But it´s strange, among the children of Leopold the Habsburg features- and lip is divided very differently. Leopold had it terribly to say the truth, but his son Joseph not that much. His face is also more long than on the portrait. It looks nice that piece of artwork, but no - or almost no- resemblance to the real Joseph! The rather "full" looking party around his chin does not resemble to the emperor´s as well, who was rather slight in his stature. That´s only my opinion. ;)

Maria Theresia (1845-1927); m.1865 Philipp, Duke of Württemberg 
Mathilde (1849-1867)
Elisabeth (1831-1903) m. Karl Ferdinand of Austria
Clotilde of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1846-1927) m. AD Joseph Karl
Marie Henriette (1836-1902); m.King Léopold II
Adelheid (1822-1855); m. King Vittorio Emanuele II
Maria Theresia (1849-1919); m.King Ludwig III

That Archduchess is definitely Archduchess Marie Karoline (1825-1915), daughter of Archduke Karl, and spouse of Archduke Rainer (1827-1913). The picture is from Österreichische Nationalbibliothek.

There is a chapter on Ludwig Salvator in the book "Habsburgs vergessene Kinder" by Thea Leitner. Maybe anybody of you has read it. I did not read this chapter until now, even when I have the book.
It seems that he catched an illness, which let him look very bloated in the face during his last years, and let him suffer a lot. He was also engaged (?) or at last interested in Archduchess Mathilde, daughter of the famous Archduke Albrecht from the Habsburg Teschen line.

Wikipedia has this about her:

(http://inlinethumb50.webshots.com/22513/2031541410094285158S600x600Q85.jpg) (http://entertainment.webshots.com/photo/2031541410094285158lYxPxf)

"Archduchess Maria Theresa (Isabella) of Austria (31 July 1816, Vienna – 8 August 1867, Albano) was the second Queen consort of Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies.

Family:

She was the eldest daughter of Archduke Charles, Duke of Teschen and Henrietta of Nassau-Weilburg.

Her paternal grandparents were Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor and Maria Louisa of Spain. Her maternal grandparents were Frederick William of Nassau-Weilburg (1768- 1816) and his wife Louise Isabelle of Kirchberg.

Frederick William was the eldest surviving son of Karl Christian of Nassau-Weilburg and Princess Wilhelmine Carolina of Orange-Nassau.

Wilhelmine Carolina was a daughter of William IV, Prince of Orange and Anne, Princess Royal and Princess of Orange. Anne was in turn the eldest daughter of George II of Great Britain and Caroline of Ansbach.

Marriage:

On 27 January 1837, Maria Theresa married Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies. The bride was almost twenty-one years old and the groom twenty-seven. They had twelve children together:

    * Lodovico, Count of Trani (1838 – 1886). Married Mathilde Ludovika, Duchess in Bavaria, sister of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Their only daughter, Princess Maria Teresa of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, married Prince Wilhelm of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen.
    * Alberto, Count of Castrogiovanni (1839 – 1844).
    * Alfonso, Count of Caserta (1841 – 1934). Married his first cousin Princess Antonietta of the Two Sicilies and has issue. The current lines of Bourbon-Sicily descend from him.
    * Maria Annuziata of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (1843 – 1871). Married Archduke Karl Ludwig of Austria.
    * Maria Immacolata Clementina of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (1844 – 1899). Married Archduke Karl Salvator of Tuscany.
    * Prince Gaetano of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (1846 – 1871). In 1868, he married Isabel, Infanta of Spain (eldest daughter of Queen Isabella II of Spain) and was created Infante of Spain.
    * Giuseppe, Count of Lucera (1848 – 1851).
    * Maria Pia of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (1849 – 1882). Married Roberto I Duke of Parma and Piacenza.
    * Vincenzo, Count of Melazzo (1851 – 1854)
    * Pasquale, Count of Bari (1852 – 1904). Married morganatically to Blanche Marconnay.
    * Maria Immacolata Luisa of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (1855 – 1874). Married Enrico Prince of Bourbon-Parma, Count di Bardi.

From the looks of her eyes and face, she may have had a stroke.  It looks as though she lost some muscle control in her face. 

But then the other pictures are of portraits and the artist may have made her look prettier than she was.

The last picture being a photograph could not hide anything.  And after saying that, the older we get the softer the tissue around our eyes gets.  That is why so many women opt for "eye surgery" to restore a look of youth.

Post by: Mari on February 05, 2008, 03:32:37 AM
Actually although She doesn't look happy She is still nice looking for her age. I mean She's in her late 50's maybe and not smiling. But you can look at her small features and round eyes and tell She would have been very pretty. I think its just age and We're use to women wearing makeup and having Eye tucks today. Women didn't look young back then after their 20's according to some of the tin- o- types I've looked at and I've seen 100's.

I think I saw this first portrait a while ago,but if I remember it is also said to be Maria Christina of Savoy,daughter of Maria Theresia and first wife of King Ferdinand II of Bourbon Two-Sicilies,but now I don't know what to think myself...

I've found this portrait under the name of 'Maria-Josepha'... I suppose it can be Maria-Josepha of Austria, electress of Saxony, but I don't really recognize her on this picture. I see the electoral hat on the table, but isn't she another princess of Saxony, of Bavaria, or...?
If somebody is sure of the identification on this portrait... Thank you!

Yes, I think you are right. This is the daughter of emperor Joseph I. (1678-1711) and Amalia Wilhelmine of Lüneburg (1673-1742). She lived from 1699-1757 and was married to Friedrich August II of Saxony and Poland, whom she had 15 children with. She is described as a very caring mother and very religious, too. She does not look alike on every picture, that's true. Like always it depends on the artist.
I must say from the face the Princess on the portrait does also look a bit like her niece, also called Maria Josepha, who was married to Joseph II. (who didn't love her at all and didn't care about her, and later her illness and death!), but I rather think this is the first possibility, which you already supposed.
Can you name me once again the page, where you found the picture? I remember that this is a fascinating page, but I have now forgotten the link...

I've got this on my Webshots albums so I'd like to see a truly positive ID too. I have this as Maria Josefa of Bavaria but the bio may be of another Maria Josefa. Some names and name couplings are heavily recycled. Maria Teresa in various spellings is probably the most heavily recycled, but Maria Josefa was recycled too. I got this from a German site so I believe the Bavarian connection is real, even if my bio is for the wrong one. :-\

Here's a Wikipedia image for Maria Jpsepha von Bayern:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Maria_Josepha_von_Bayern.jpg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Maria_Josepha_von_Bayern.jpg)

The parent article states:
"Maria Josepha (Marie Josephe Antonie Walburga Felicitas Regula, 20 March 1739 - 28 May 1767), Princess of Bavaria, was the daughter of Charles Albert, Elector of Bavaria and Maria Amalia of Austria. She was a member of the house of Wittelsbach.

Born on 30 March 1739 in Munich, Bavaria, on 23 January 1765, she married the widowed Joseph, King of the Romans, and heir of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, in Schönbrunn Palace.

Upon her father-in-law's death on 18 August 1765, Maria Josepha became Empress consort of the Holy Roman Empire. Her mother-in-law, however, remained the most powerful and important figure in the Empire and at court in Vienna, and Maria Josepha's marriage to Joseph is said to have been an unhappy one. Maria Josepha died of smallpox on 28 May 1767, and was buried in the Capuchin monastery in Vienna."

Post by: britt.25 on June 19, 2008, 01:51:52 AM
I think there were confused two people now. You think of the one, who I mentioned as second possibility, the wife of emperor Joseph II., whom - as I said- was not loved very much by her husband.
Marc rather thinks that it is her sister, who married Ludwig Georg Simpert, margrave of Baden-Baden. Strange. I can't say it, because the faces of all those bavarian princesses descending from Joseph I. are too similar! However the genealogies rather call the Princess of Baden-Baden Maria Anna Josepha, so Josepha rather appears as third name. The Princess on this portrait rather carries the name Maria Josepha as first name...strange....

Marc, how do you know that it might be her? Do you have any comparison picture? I didn't find any....a pity. So she was also sister in-law
of Joseph II., if your statement is right!

For me the question is resolved, thank you to all of you, but especially to you, Marc, who have the good answer -  on my opinion, at least!

Look at this portrait of Maria-Anna, a few years before her death (around 1770-1772, after her hairstyle...).  It's persuasive, isn't it?

The name "Marie-Josepha" was wrong... Thank you to all of you, one more time.

Thank you, the site is very interesting and there are good pictures, but the descriptions are not always complete and it seems that confusions can happen easily.

For example I found a portrait there with the headline "Kaiserin Maria Amalia". In fact, if the empress is meant, the wife of emperor Joseph I. was called "Amalia Wilhelmine", and therfore the name is not correct like that. For me it appears that it is rather their daughter, because she looks like that, but then the lady cannot be an empress. It's strange...

But of course, the lady can be an empress! The daughter of Joseph I. and Amalia Wilhelmine, Maria Amalia, was married to Charles-Albert of Bavaria, who was elected emperor under the name of 'Charles VII' 1742-1745...

Archduchess Maria Theresia Henriette Dorothee of Austria-Este (July 2, 1849 - February 3, 1919) later become Queen of Bavaria. (possily it the child in the painting).

Archduchess Maria Theresa Anna of Austria-Teschen (15 July 1845, Vienna - 8 October 1927, Tübingen) unmarried.

Archduchess Maria Theresa (Isabella) of Austria-Teschen (31 July 1816, Vienna – 8 August 1867, Albano) later Queen of Two Sicilies.

But as far as I know, there was at that time no members called Elisabeth in the Modena-Este branch.
My suggest is, that the cdv shows the Archduchess Adelgunde, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?  ???

You are right. This is Archduchess Adelgunde, née Princess of Bavaria.

Maybe the seller thought of Archduchess Elisabeth Franziska (Hungarian branch) who was married to Adelgunde's brother-in-law Archduke Ferdinand Karl Victor (1821-1849). Their only child is Marie Therese, last Queen of Bavaria (1849-1919).

Maybe that it was the case, but Archduchess Elisabeth Franziska really looks totally different.....( So I think!)

There's no date on the pic, but the eldest of her surviving half-siblings, Archduke Friedrich, was born in 1856, whereas she was born in 1849...so say the genealogies....so six/ seven years of age difference between her and her eldest half-sibling....

Here is a child picture of Archduke Karl of Teschen's and Henriette of Nassau's daughter Maria Theresia, and I wondered, if your painting could also be her...as children they often look too similar:

In fact there wasn't any Archduchess called "Maria Theresa". In Austria royals prefered "Maria Theresia" or "Marie Therese". The Queen of Naples was a "Maria Theresia" as well as her niece, the Duchess of Württemberg. The Queen of Bavaria was a "Marie Therese". Both Queens were called "Therese" by their family members.

*******

Moritz Michael Daffinger died in August 1849. That's why the little girl in the painting can't be Maria Theresia (later Queen of Bavaria). Some time ago, I found her identified as Maria Theresia (later Duchess of Württemberg).

Actually the name "Theresia" wasn't very pupular with the Italian branch. Maybe Leopold II.'s daughter (1836-1838) was called "Teresa", but as the Toscanas haven't lived in Italy since the early 1860s, they also used the German versions. Karl Salvator's eldest daughter was a Maria Theresia, too.

The cut of the dress suggested that she wasn't even a Russian Grand Duchess. The dress looks Hungarian in cut (like Sisi would wear), and tiara was not the Russian Fringe type. She could be Hungarian in the Austro-Hungarian court, as her features looked a bit dark.

No a Russian Grand Duchess definitely. More likely some noble Hungarian girl/woman.

She looks to me to be Queen Stephanie of Portugal, wife of King Pedro V

It really looks like Stefanie,although I would regard her as thinner than in this portrait...but I also think that this is someone somehow connected to the Bavarian family...

No, she is not a member of the Bavarian royal family. I don't think that she's Stefanie of Portugal either.

Iam inclined to believe it is Queen Estefania of Portugal. In  this picture she wears what  looks to be the same dress and pearl necklace.

I've seen it before and wondered if it was in fact Stephanie's siter, Marie Countess of Flanders.  The resemblence to Stephanie is strong, but I thought her features were softer and she was the prettier of the two.  Here is a picture of Marie - I don't have her in profile, unfortunately:

Agneschen, Sveta, REMI, synnadene ... and everyone else: I need your help!

Today I was looking for pictures of Archduke Friedrich's grandchildren. I found a very nice photograph whose caption says: "Friedrich's nine grandchildren. Preßburg (?), ca. 1915", but I wasn't able to identify the children.

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mariasophia1841/friedrich_enkel02a.jpg)

For a bigger version, please click here: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mariasophia1841/friedrich_enkel02.jpg (http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mariasophia1841/friedrich_enkel02.jpg)

Friedrich had the following grandchildren:

Salm-Salm:
- Isabelle (1903-2009)
- Rosemary (1904-2001)
- Nikolaus (1906-1988)
- Cäcilie (1911-1991)
- Franz (1912-1917)

Bourbon-Parma:
- Elisabeth (1904-1983)
- Carlo (1905-1912)
- Francesca (1906-1994)
- Roberto (1909-1974)
- Francesco (1913-1939)
- Giovanna (1916-1949)
- Alice (1917)
- Christina (1925)

Hohenlohe:
- Elisabeth (1909-1987)
- Natalie (1911-1989)
- Friedrich (1913-1945)

Archduchess Alice's children were born between 1921 and 1933, which means they can't be in the picture.

What I think is that the three tallest children are Isabelle, Rosemary and Nikolaus Salm-Salm. Maybe the two smallest are Cäcilie and Franz Salm-Salm. Franz died in 1917 which means that the picture must have been taken before 1917.
Besides, I think that the handsame young boy with dark curls doesn't fit into that group. Friedrich's grandchildren were all rather plain - just like their mothers.
What I also know is that Friedrich Hohenlohe is not in the picture. He had very fair curly hair.

Here is a picture of Albrecht and "his nieces and nephews". The caption doesn't identify the people, but I think they are the five Salm-Salm children - and again there is the dark-haired boy ...

Thanks a lot in advance.

Marie


The quick glance:

Well, the three tallest are the Salms - Isabella, Rosmarie, Nikolaus.... The little girl between 2 boys is more likely Elisabeth Hohenlohe (she doesn't resemble Francesca Parma)...
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Svetabel on May 16, 2009, 01:44:45 PM
I definitely stuck on that dark-haired boy! He indeed doesn't look like a child of any Friedrich's daughters..I even looked through the Croy genealogy in searching of "a suitable boy" but in vain. I'd say he has a Wittelsbach look but not quite though...
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: MarieCharlotte on May 16, 2009, 03:23:58 PM
Thanks, Sveta. So we have from left to right: Isabelle, Rosemary and Nikolaus Salm Salm, the mysterious boy, three unknown children, Elisabeth Hohenlohe and another unknown boy. Do you have any idea concerning these other "unknown" children?

The dark-haired boy seems to have spent a lot of time with Friedrich's grandchildren, but I also don't think that he is one of them. He resembles Prince Luitpold of Bavaria, but he isn't a Wittelsbach.

The little girl (fourth from right) looks quite pretty, a bit frail. Who could she be? Maybe one of the Parmas? I guess that the boys next to her are her brothers as they were the same shirts and shoes.

After one more time staring at the photo I must agree with your first identification:

The tallest are the Salms.
Then dark-haired mysterious boy.
Then must be 3 Parma chidren as they resemble each other a lot and dress almost alike: but here's a question - the girl is definitely Francesca (Elisabeth had more round face), the younger boy is Roberto, and what about the elder - Carlo?? He died in 1912, your photo is about 1915. Could the photo be of 1912,f.e.? Unlikely, as the eldest Salms look like teenagers...
The youngest are the Salms - Cäcilie and Franz.

So - 3 questions : who's the dark-haired boy? who's the boy in front of him? and is 1915 the year of the picture?
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: MarieCharlotte on May 24, 2009, 07:27:21 AM
Hello Sveta,

first of all I'd like to thank you for spending so much time over my picture.
The captions in "Ein Photoalbum aus dem Hause Habsburgs" are empty, meaningless and full of mistakes. I guess the authors didn't know much about Friedrich's family, so they usually wrote "about" 1915 or 1910-15. So the picture we are talking about could have been taken some years earlier.

BUT: If the youngest children are Cäcilie and Franz, the picture must have been taken in about 1915, because Franz was born in 1912 and is about two or three years in the picture. This would mean, that Carlo (who died in 1912) can't be the boy next to Francesca. To sum up: Franz Salm-Salm and Carlo of Bourbon-Parma can't be in one and the same picture.

I guess the dark-haired boy doesn't belong to Friedrich's relatives. Maybe he was the son of some Hungarian count and friend of the family??

I have some other pictures of Friedrich's grandchildren:

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mariasophia1841/friedrich_enkel03.jpg)

The caption says: "Three of Friedrich's grandchildren, about 1910."

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mariasophia1841/friedrich_enkel01.jpg)

"Friedrich with Elisabeth, Natalie and Friedrich Hohenlohe, 1916."

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mariasophia1841/albrechtfranz_neffe01.jpg)

"Albrecht with one of his nephews (which one?), Vienna 1917-18."

--------------

By the way: Do you have pictures of Maria Anna's children you are willing to share? I would love to see them. Especially Francesca seemed to have been a very cute little girl.





Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: MarieCharlotte on May 24, 2009, 09:29:21 AM
I just found this picture of Elisabeth, Carlo and Francesca and now I have doubts about the identification of the little girl as Francesca. As you can see in this pic, Francesca has blonde hair, but the little girl in the group of Friedrich's grandchildren has dark hair ...

(http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g81/7f3/GrennderungFile0177.jpg)

Besides: If the little girl with that white flower (?) in her hair is Cäcilie, the other girl can't be Francesca, because Francesca was born 5 years earlier.

I think we are off the track ...

Post by: aor on October 08, 2009, 12:42:15 PM
Marc, it also looks as if she is wearing a scarf around her head, but if this is after 1918, why would she be addressed as a Habsburg Princess.....or why would she not be addressed as Archduchess? Also, for some reason she strikes me as either French or Italian (fashion wise).
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Marc on October 08, 2009, 12:58:49 PM
The caption was in Polish,so literally the translation is "Princess Habsburg",but sometimes the artists or the ones who posses those painting don't know the difference...so,it could be someone from the Habsburg family living there or had some connection with Poland or something like that since it is painted by a Polish painter...

It's hardly to be him. Father of Franz Joseph in a tavern with crummy walls? Even eccentric Archdukes didn't pose in such places. Though I think that's a staged photo, but anyway not of Archduke Franz Karl.

Well, there is actually a well-known portrait of Karl and his children, but I couldn'f find it online.

Anyway, I don't think that these children are the younger ones of Archduke Karl. In the pic we can see two little girls, but Karl had only two daughters, Therese (born 1816) and Marie Caroline (born 1825). In 1836 even Marie would have been too old to be one of them.

Fendi also did a beautiful painting showing all of Queen Caroline of Bavaria's grandchildren. Maybe "our" picture doesn't show siblings, but cousins ... Nevertheless, I am not sure if these children are Habsburgs at all. They could be the children of any noble Austrian family.

Hello!
This is a cabinet for sale on ebay, with ID: Maria Theresa of Braganza archduchess of Austria. Dear Katenka (Fyodorovna) thinks she´s not Maria Theresa. I was sure she was Maria Theresa or maybe one of her sisters -a see a strong resemblance. Maybe anyone could help...

Please do it., Cause she doesnt look at all like Maria Therese, First, different look in her eyes, her mouth and softer features, M theresa had also thicker eyebrows and etc etc.


Im with Svetabel , the lady had an strong "thurn und taxis" look.

Louise

Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: MarieCharlotte on February 15, 2010, 11:22:10 AM
I still think it's an early photograph of Marie Therese. Here is another one of Marie Therese aged 21 with her new born daughter Maria Annunziata ... If it's not her, the lady could be one of her sisters, too - except for Marie José who looked differently.

(http://home.arcor.de/ciolla/marietherese_miana01.jpg)

By the way, Katenka_Fyodorovna, the other picture of Marie Therese you posted shows the archduchess in her late twenties. So it doesn't make sense to compare these pictures at all. The Thurn und Taxis theory is nonsense if you ask me.
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Carolath Habsburg on February 15, 2010, 11:43:17 AM
I still believe its NOT marie Therese. Well.... here other pictures of her a a young woman and you can see both women are way different, Maybe there s a "soft" resemblance, but defo, its NOT her.

Here in the engagement picture.1873 with 19 years old. I dont see much difference between the picture i posted of her in her late twenties with this one. Still...i cant see resemblance between the real M. Theresa and the other lady

(http://i48.tinypic.com/2dt9hkh.jpg)


The picture of ther "mistery lady" is circa 1877-1879 according her dress so if its Therena (i highly doubt it) she would have 22-24 yrs old and noticing that there s not much difference between the two pictures i posted of her, there s no doubt that the other lady isnt her.

Another hint...what about where the picture was taken?. Baden . Could it be just an ordinary women with a wrong "label"?


Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Rani on February 15, 2010, 11:55:29 AM
On the card you can read Hofphotograph, court photograph.

So, I think it is a Braganza princess, but which. I thought first it is Elisabeth Thurn und Taxis or her daughter Maria Theresia, whose husbands name was Karl Ludwig. On ebay is the back of the photo: Maria Theresa Braganza married to Karl Ludwig Erzherzog von Österreich. Maybe it´s wrong and its Karl Ludwig Thurn und Taxis???

Katenka, Baden-Baden was one of the most famous resorts of these times. I´m pretty sure almost all the royals were more than twice spending some weeks in Baden-Baden ;)

I don´t think she´s an ordinary woman and I can see the Braganza features. My first impression was she was Maria Theresa. If not, I suppose she can be Maria das Neves. But I believe she´s one of the Braganza sisters, not an ordinary woman with a beautiful dress ;)

Post by: Carolath Habsburg on February 15, 2010, 12:07:30 PM
The Maria Theresa you re talking about was born in 1881 so it cant be =(.

Im just looking the reverse of the picture but that doesnt say anything. I can buy a card of Napoleon III and write behind its Vittorio Emanuele II .

About the "court photography" stuff, they only took pictures of archduchess, duchess and royals?. Maybe this woman was part of the aristocracy or a noble family?

Thanks for the info about baden-baden. Now it could be nice to have info if MAria Theresa and her sisters were frecuent visitors of that spa town

This seller is really reliable--not one of those who pounces on any image and labels it a royal. They always have good royal cards and never mind some questioning about their IDs. The back inscription, which looks to be contemporary to the time, says Maria Theresa Braganza and notes Karl Ludwig Osterreich as well. The photographer was frequented by Mathilde Trani and family as well as Grand Duke Michael N and Princess Marie of Baden. This isn't drawing any conclusions on my part as this family isn't one that I've studied well. Still, there is something there. I do feel she's a member of one of the royal families. It's like she's almost Maria Theresa or she's almost someone else but not quite.

No, its not. Check other pictures of Maria Das neves and you realize it isnt her.

GDella, i agree with you that this seller is a super reliable source but not free of mistakes. As i said before he had a picture of Vittorio Emanuelle II as Napoleon III and i sent him a mail telling that he was mistaken. He change the subject and he thought it was Napoleon III just because an inscription behind, just like it happened with this picture.

People back in those times, even with little info avalaible about those royals would confuse easily and mislabeled pics.

sometimes they just invent a royal procedence to got more money from the item. Its seems thats a common practice on ebay....

Yes, sad but true. And unfortunately a lot of people get cheated and buy those items. That's why I usually tell fellow collectors to ask for a second opinion before buying something they are not sure of. In a forum, for example.

Maria Theresia in question had grey hair when she aged and on this pic she would have to be 65 years old and the woman in the portrait doesn't look like a 65 year old...

Hello,
Mostly I'm able to find confirmation in books or reliable sites about the identity of a sitter but I'm having problems with this one ....
I believe it's the Erzherzogin Gisela in early youth.
Does anybody know where I can confirm this ? (book or reliable website ?)

Hello,
Sorry for asking the same question in the Elisabeth part IV section as well - overlooked this topic.

So again my question:
Mostly I'm able to find confirmation in books or reliable sites about the identity of a sitter but I'm having problems with this one ....
I believe it's the Empress Elisabeth but possibly it's her sister Marie Sophie.
Does anybody know where I can confirm this ? (book or reliable website ?)

Hi Jan

Why do you believe that's the Empress? I ask as the sitter doesn't resemble Elisabeth or her sisters. What's a source of the photo? (if it's not a secret).
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: jalm on November 02, 2011, 06:34:23 AM
Hello,

It came with other photos on the Habsburgs.
I have found one or two photos of Elisabeth or Marie Sophia where she looks quite the same but which were not convincing me.

It is  -by the way- a cdv by Adolf Ost, Wien.

Ofcourse it's possible it got mixed up with the Habsburg cdv's by mistake !

Anyone's guess who could it be?

LOL.... I knew this portrait and it was also a big question for me... Finally I think it could be Karl-Ludwig, 20 y.o., around 1850-55...

(http://www.altesses.eu/Sn/karllud.jpg)

And as well as the (in a way) similarity of the faces, there is another factor : Karl-Ludwig was in his youth (1855-1861) governor of Tirol, and Wilten, where this portrait is located, is in Tirol...

Then... Not 100% sure, of course... But for me it's Karl-Ludwig...
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Marc on January 25, 2012, 09:44:26 PM
Thank you for your reply,but the Karl Ludwig seems to be blond on this picture and there is a similar portrait of some other member of the Habsburg family(don't remember the name now),but belonging to some other branch,so i thought that maybe those 2 portraits are connected,maybe brothers as it seems to be by the same painter...

But still,don't know!Not smart enough,I guess ;)
Title: Re: Help with Photo Identification, Question or Caption
Post by: Bourgogne on January 26, 2012, 12:49:00 PM
It's true that KL's hair seems to be more blond, that's why I have doubts on this identification.

And this "19th century Habsburg type" is so strong, especially when they are young, that it's sometimes difficult to recognize somebody between all these guys with this long face, domed forehead, big lips...

If not KL, I think it's a member of the branch of Toscany...

(But look how Maria-Annunziata, KL's daughter, has got a striking ressemblance with your portrait... Even if it doesn't mean anything, as I said, all the Habsburgs had this face...)

Hello,
Another puzzle.
I'm trying to find out who the two women in the photograph are.
It looks to me that the standing woman is Marie Caroline von Osterreich (1825-1915).
But the seated woman .... Have compared her with members of the Royal family of the II Sicilies but have not found a good match yet.
Don't let you lead by the possible identification of the standing woman - I can be totally wrong !!

I actually just came across a website with photographs of the family of Ferdinando II and Maria Teresa. It was in French and that was probably the reason why I did not came across it earlier - using words like Queen ....
So I just came to the same conclusion as you did.

In fact, my first idea when I saw the picture, was immediatly Louise of Thurn-and-Taxis, wife of Frederick of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen... But I checked, and finally I'm not so convinced, there is a true ressemblance, but Louise had a little more full face, not so fine. We can suppose maybe on this picture, it was a period where she was more thin... But :-/

I don't think it's MT, and I don't see either who of her sister it could be. Even if there definitively something of the type of all these Braganza princesses, I don't recognize really the face of one of them...

This is a big mystery...

I know it was taken in 1865 by François Aubert because a lithography of it can be found in the German book "Maximilian: Erzherzog von Osterreich: Kaiser von Mexiko in seitgenossischen Photographien". However, I want a book that has the actual photo. The one which has been uploaded on Wikipedia has a poor overall quality. Can anyone help me out with this one?

I really don't think the portrait on this (really beautiful btw) vase has anything to do with an "Habsburg archduchess"... The coat of arms near the lady has no link with the Habsburgs (or another sovereign house), and above all, is surmounted by a baron's crown...

An amended version of Google Translate's translation from the French:

His Imperial Majesty called upon all Privy State Counsellors, who were in Vienna, to meet at the accustomed place, on the 19th April 1713 at ten in the morning. As they arrived at the appointed hour, the Emperor entered the chamber of the State Council, under the canopy, and stood vis-à-vis ordinary table: then he sent His Counsellors and Ministers of State, who entered by to their rank, and stood upright, in their place; namely,
 
Prince Eugene of Savoy, Prince Trautson, Prince Schwarzenberg, Count Traun, Land Marshall Country, Count Thurn, Grand Master of the House of the Empress Eleonore, Count Dietrichstein, Grand Equerry, Count Seilern, Chancellor of the Court, Count Starhemberg, President of the Chamber of Finance, Count Martinitzs the younger, Count Herberstein, Vice-Chairman of the Council of War, Count Schikh, Grand Chancellor of Bohemia, Count Schönborn, Vice-Chancellor of the Empire, the Archbishop of Valencia, Count Sinzendorff, Grand Chamberlain, Count Parr, Grand Master of the House of the Empress Amelia, Count Sinzendorff, Vice-President of the Imperial Aulic Council, Count Nicolas Palfy, Grand Judge of the Court of the Kingdom of Hungary, Count Illieshasy, Chancellor of Hungary, Count Khevenhüller,Governor of Lower Austria, Count Gallas , Count Salm, Grand Equierry of Empress Amelie. Marquis Romeo, Privy Secretary of Royal Spanish State, with the States of Italy dismembered from the Spanish Crown, Count Kornis, Vice-Chancellor of Transylvania. Mister von Schickh, referendary.

When all said Counsellors and Ministers of State were thus assembled, His Imperial Majesty told them that the reason why he had made the call was to tell them, that it had been established between the late Emperor Leopold his father, the late Emperor Joseph his brother, then King of the Romans, and this Emperor, then as King in Spain, provisions, regulations & succession covenants, which had been confirmed by oath, by all parties in the presence of various Counsellors and Ministers of State of the Emperor but as few of said Counsellors and Ministers of State remained alive today, His Imperial Majesty had thought necessary not only to make them the declaration, but to give them knowledge of the said Act and same covenants, and to have them read to them.

At the time his Imperial Majesty ordered the Count of Seilern his Court Chancellor, to said reading.

And said Count read in a loud and clear voice, the beginning of the Act of Spanish acceptance, in his hands the original, signed by the Emperor, then as King of Spain, and furnished with the seal. Then he read the Act of succession, signed by Emperor Leopold and the King of the Romans, with their respective seals, from the beginning to the end, with the Notary Certificate attached. Finally he read the rest of the Spanish Act until the end containing the acceptance and commitment of the Emperor, similarly with the Notary's certificate attached to it, which acts are dated Vienna from 12 September 1703.

With this reading completed, His Imperial Majesty further stated to said Counsellors and Ministers of State that the acts that had just been read, he gave them to know that there was a provision and mutual pact for succession erected in perpetuity, and confirmed by oath between the two Josephine & Caroline lines; And as a result, with the Kingdoms & Hereditary Provinces of Spain, which were ceded to him by the Emperor Leopold & the Emperor Joseph, of happy memory, the death of that emperor his brother, arrived without his having left male heirs, put him in possession of all other hereditary kingdoms & countries, which were to remain together, without any division, under the law of primogeniture, with his male heirs, from legal marriage, which he may have in life; but by lack of male offspring (which God would spare him) by him, they would return in the same way to his daughters born of legitimate marriage, according to the order and right of primogeniture.

In addition, by the lack of any legitimate descendants, both male and female, from His said Imperial Majesty the said succession right to all said  hereditary Kingdoms & Countries , would pass, in the above manner, always keeping the order of primogeniture, to the daughters of Emperor Joseph, and their legitimate descendants, and that similarly said Dames Archduchesses enjoy all the privileges and other prerogatives, according to that law and order of succession.

The whole so understood, that after the Caroline branch reigning today, and after the daughters of the Josephine branch, which the Emperor Joseph left after himself, said inheritance, with all that depends from it, belongs, remains and will be reserved in any way to the sisters of His Imperial Majesty, and all other lines of the Archducal house, under the law of primogeniture, in the rank and order that will result.

So that hereby the law, these regulations and succession pacts established in perpetuity, and confirmed by oath of the Emperors father and brother of His Imperial Majesty, and of his said Imperial Majesty himself, had no other object than the glory of God, and the conservation of all the hereditary countries together, His Imperial Majesty held firmly to all the above, likewise He promised to the said Consultants & Ministers: He exhorted & ordered them, to not provide less care and attention from their side to abide by these pacts and rules in their entirety, to observe them, and maintain; and To this end, His Imperial Majesty releaved said Counsellors and Ministers of State, in this case, from the commitment to secrecy. After that His Imperial Majesty and their Lordships the Counsellors and Ministers of State, retired.
 
I certify that all happened as above; in witness whereof I have signed this act, and in here it affixed my seal. In Vienna, 19 April, one thousand seven hundred thirteen.

(LS) Signed George Frederic von Schickh, Counsellor to His Imperial Majesty, Private Secretary of  Lower Austria & Referent; created Notary Public for the present act, by the authoriy of the Emperor & Archduke of Austria...
