Elisabeta was so embarrassed because queen sophie and her family deliberately spoke only Greek at dinner.

At that time, Marie of Romania was not good financial condition too. During WWI, Bucharest was captured by German. Bolsheviks deprived of Romanians gold and all crown jewels and never return it. Marie had lost almost all her jewelry.(including her dowry and her father's wedding presents! Marie was so devastated)
Marie said that "Not the smallest tiniest little atom of anything. Sophy has all her jewels, I lost all mine, yet we have made tremendous efforts to send her daughter a beautiful diadem." I don't think Marie was small-minded.

with father. Wilhelm II looks like a loving father.

It's Jolanda. Three princesses arrived in Rome, 1941

Hello, everyone.
I am interested in Maria Teresa(1855-1944), archduke Karl Ludwig's fourth wife. I know she was a good stepmother. and she supported Franz Ferdinand's morganatic marriage.
but no more information about her.
I would like to learn more about her story, character etc.... (and After Empire, how she lives?)

This portrait painted by Winterhalter
and in Second Empire (1852-1870)

so...Let's analyze.
Amalie (1790-1794), daughter of Max I.  : No.
- Amalie Auguste (1801-1877), daughter of Max I.  : I think..she was too old then.(In painting she looks twenties)
- Amalie (Amélie, 1865-1912), daughter of Duke Carl Theodor : No
- Amalie Isabella (1921-1985), daughter of Prince Konrad :No

so I think she was the Princess Adalbert, Amelie of Spain(1834-1905).
daughter of Duke Cadiz and king Ludwig I's daughter-in-law

I'm reading a book of Maria Theresa. and it contains very interesting story.
<In 1756, she wrote for Countess Lerchenfeld, who at the time in charge of supervising Johanna & Josepha.

'I insist on their eating everything, with no fault-finding and no picking and choosing. Further, they must not be allowed to criticise their food. On Fridays, Saturdays, and all other fast-days they will eat fish.
Although Johanna in particular dislikes it, she must not be indulged. the sooner the habit is broken the better. All my children had the same aversion, and all had to overcome it......I don't like to see them eating much sugar, see that they have as little as possible.

The girls were not to be allowed to neglect their appearance. Cleanliness is to be observed most strictly. they must be properly washed and combed, every day without exception.

They must not be allowed to talk to door-keepers and stokers, or to give them orders; they are born to obey....I fear that Johanna is pig-headed, though she is clever enough in other ways. Josepha still seems to be a good child, but not so capable.
And never must they be allowed to be afraid, neither of thunder-stroms, fire, ghosts, witches, or any other nonsense. The servants must not talk about such thing or tell horror stries. Yor are not to let them be frightened of illness, so you will talk in a perfectly natural way about everything of this kind, even smallpox and death; it is all to the good to familiarise them with such thoughts in good time.
They must not be allowed to show aversion to anything, still less to anybody: no familiarity with the servants, politeness toward all, and particulary towards strangers.'

Her message to her children: even though you are surrounded by luxury and excess, you must not let your exalted status corrode your character. Royalty means responsibility, duty, unceasing and exhausting obligation; there is no room for laxity or weakness, or the self-indulgence of vice.>

I know the prefix of Maria had been established for All Archduchesses in the day empress Eleorona Magdalena(wife of Leopold I).
It was intended to signify the special veneration of Habsburg family for the Virgin Mary.
So all daughters(~Leopold II) had Maria. but Why Franz II-I's daughters?
His daughters.
from first wife
  1. Ludovika Elisabeth Franziska

from second wife
  1. Marie Louise Leopoldine Franziska Theresia Josepha Lucia  
  2. Marie Caroline Leopoldine Franziska Theresia Josepha Medaros
  3. Caroline Ludovika Leopoldine
  4. Marie Leopoldine Josepha Caroline
  5. Marie Clementine Franziska Josepha
  6. Marie Caroline Ferdinande Theresia Josephine Demetria
  7. Maria Anna Franziska Theresia Josepha Medarde
  8. Amalia Theresia
