The Habsburgs / Re: Empress Elisabeth, Part V.

The book is "The last Courts of Europe. A Royal Family Album 1860-1914". But Robert Massie only wrote the introduction. The picture research and descriptions are by Jeffrey Finestone.

THe photo is spread in pages 88-89, and the description says "Empress Elisabeth on her deathbed, 10 September 1898. She was assassinated at Geneva while boarding a boat - stabbed in the chest, she nevertheless continued walking but collapsed some moments later".

The photo was reproduced by permission of Roger Violet, Paris.

I hope this helps ;-)

Another pose, sorry for the size:

It's a photography by Franz Hanfstaengl, so it was taken in Munich.

Beautiful pictures, but I agree with Therry. This is Louise of Sweden. Archives do make mistakes sometimes.

Wera as a child

In my opinion this is Princess Louise of Sweden

I edit to add this link:,_1861_-_Nordiska_Museet_-_NMA.0051948_1.jpg

Yes Dru, that is a photograph of Alexandra Fedorovna.

This is new for me, Olga and Maria in 1899.

Maria Pavlovna, before her marriage, with an unidentified woman. Any idea of who she might be? I think Alexandrine of Prussia.

I think that the man in the back between Alexander and Vladimir is Albert of Saxe Altenburg.

Jalm, the sitter is not Empress Eugenie. In my opinion they are not royals.

It was archduke Joseph, Palatine of Hungary. He married three times. He first wife was Grand Duchess Alexandra Pavlovna, sister to Nicholas I of Russia.
This archduke was the father of queen Marie Henriette of Belgium among others.
