Teck
« on: October 14, 2008, 09:04:35 AM »
Does anyone have any information or pictures of Queen Mary's two paternal aunts, Claudine Pss of Teck (1836-94) and Amelie (1838-93)? The latter married Paul Graf von Hügel and all three are buried near Graz in Austria. They must have visited their family in England and may appear in group photos. I have drawn a blank!

 Baron von Hugel was created a Count in 1879, he committed suicide in 1897. The sisters were inseparable and Claudine moved into the family home Schloss Reinthal bei Graz, and ran the farm escribed as "devoted to the farm and her nephew". Amalie 's only child Paul 2 Ct 1872+1912 div his wife Anne Homolatsch in 1911 and had 2 children Huberta 1897+1912 and Ferdinand born 1901. On his death the castle was sold. Ferdinand 3 count was living in Brazil in 1939. The sisters and 1 count are buried St Peters Graz, the castle was looted by soviet troops in WW2

Thanks for the information! I'm sure the castle featured in a dance sequence for the "New Years Day Concert" from Vienna a couple of years ago. It's amazing how obscure close relatives of prominent royals become.

Someone here have more photos or information about Francis, Duke of Teck (1837-1900), Queen Mary's father? Or there's another topic on the forum on he? Any info would be nice.

You could try searching on the Windsor sub-forum--there's a topic on Francis's wife and also on their various children.
