I suppose that, unless someone finds an unopened box in the attic or inherits some old family archives, there won't be any new revelation or picture of Elizabeth, Franz-Joseph and their children. How probable is that?

I have read "The Assassination of the Archduke" a good read my only gripe is there mention of guards regiments when the Austro-hungarian army didn't have any guards regiments. Here are the only guards units in the A-H army:

KUK Trabantereibgarde a company of men from proven soldiers of the regular army that guard palaces and other Imperial residences.

KUK Leibgarderreitereskardron 150 men and 80 horses displace riders

KUK Liebgardeininfantriekompanie 278 men proven soldiers of the regular army who guard the royal palace in Vienna
