die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Although it has been a while since anything was posted here....I was leafing through some old "Royalty Digest" magazines and came across this very nice family grouping.  I did a search of "Caserta" and found this topic.  I thought this photo would be relevent to post here...................

Thanks for posting this wonderful and rare picture of Caserta's children, speedycat.  :D

But I think it was taken in 1914 or even later, because Caserta's 11th child Francesco d'Assisi isn't on the photo. He died in March 1914.

I am not at all familiar with this Roayl Family.  I posted the photo only because I found it quite lovely and saw the topic here.  I do notice in the caption ( it is rather small when it appears here) that the young man 2nd from left, next the the man with the cigar and cane is identified as Francesco d'Assisi.  Is this the young man you are refering to?  There are certainbly just 11 people in the photo but I am not knowledgeable enough to know one from the other ???

I am glad to be back at this board.  I was a bit concerned about posting photos again as I have a very slow and old computer.  Often I post "repeat" photos which angers some people here.  I do wish I had the time to search through every page to be sure I do not post photos already seen here, but there simply is not enough time with this slow dial-up connection I have.  I am glad you like these and will continue my search for relevent and "unseen" photos.

Speedy ;)

I am interested in Bourbon Two Sicilies story.. For a certain time, I am been looking for pictures of the prince Gabriele (born in 1897 in Cannes, dead in 1975 at Itu, state of San Paolo. (Brazil), count of Caserta' youngest child. The only pictures of him I have seen show the prince Gabriel when he was a little boy, taken at the villa Thérèse in Cannes with his parents.
Does anybody have photos of Gabriel adult? Many thanks. REMI

Francesco d'Assisi Maria Ferdinando Eudo di Borbone, prince of Two Sicilies, born in Cannes (France) january 13th 1888 died in Les Avants sur Montreux (Swiss) on march 26th,1914, therefore BEFORE the 1st World War.He served in Spanish Army.
I don't know the cause of his death. Maybe a mountain accident?

Anyone can provide info about Alfonso conte di Caserta, half brother of Francesco II of Naples and younger brother to Luigi of Trani and Alberto of Castrogiovanni? I know he married his cousin Maria Antonietta of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and they had a great family, not less than twelve children...

I´m interested because they were the father and mother of Carlo Tancredi, fistly husband of María de las Mercedes of Spain, princess of the Asturias, and secondly husband of Louise of Orleans. Carlo and Louise had a daughter, María de las Mercedes, who became the wife of don Juan and mother of our king Juan Carlos I.

But I wish to know more also about the brothers and sisters of Carlo...

I would like to know more about Pss.Maria Pia, 3rd daughter of the Count of Caserta.

She married Pr. Luis d'Orléans-Bragança and the couple had 3 children.

Due to D.Luis'elder brother renounciation, should Brazil be a monarchy, she would have been the Consorte Emperess.

All the pictures I've seen of her, together with the Imperial RF, show a very discrete, shy, silly faced woman who seems to have lived all her life in the shade.
So different from her flamboyante sister-in-law Elizabeth countess Dobrzenicz, who passed her panache to her daughters, mainly to the Countess of Paris, and in less grade, to Pss. Teresa.

Has someone got any info on Mª Pia ? What was she like ? Character, personality, tastes, did she have any artistic talents - music, painting, etc ?
I've looked for her in brazilian related sites but the lady seems to be almost a ghost.
Data on her merely refers to birth, wedding and deathdays, names of husband and children and that's all !

Thanks in advance .+

Oh, Remi, thank you sooooo much. I never expect such a picture of the whole Caserta family! It´s great...
And thank you, Sveta, for adding a more picture. I truly believe you have pictures of ALL the royals we ever had here in the Old Europe...
