Zita and son Otto



In my view, Otto resembled more features of his mother- or mother's side of family.

A lovely boy indeed!!! ;-D

Yes, but already with the  famous "lip" of Habsburgs.

Karl reminds me completely Maria Josepha in face, but he really had habsburg's lip, although his father Otto didn't.

I like very much Zita!
It's strange, but her funeral made me cry... I think because I saw in these images the real end of centuries of history!

Yes, it was indeed touching. Although she passed away in 1989, her funeral had glance of the old monarchy.

At seven years old with her younger sister Irene

Zita didn't have a sister called Irene. I guess the child next to Zita is one of her younger brothers, Felix or René. They used to have long hair and looked like girls.

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

Indeed, and the child in the photo look like more Felix than René.

Childhood photo of Zita


At the extreme right, front, with her brothers and sisters Sixte, Adelaide, Franzisca and Xavier

These pictures are misidentified. In the first picture we can't see little Zita, but her sister Isabelle.

Second picture: Zita and René are standing in the back, Felix, Maria Antonia and Isabelle are sitting in the front. (There are quite a few pictures from this sitting.)

I think it was Karl Ludwigs marriage on 17 January 1950 to Princess Yolande of Ligne.
