The style of her dress is of the 1860s, so the lady is definetely not Helena of Albany.

Yes, definitely not the Duchess of Albany. Her son was born posthumously so if she was going to do a portrait like that, Charlie wouldn't have been painted at that age. Since it's titled '...in mourning' I would guess that whatever age the son is, it was shortly before then that she was widowed. Is it a Winterhalter? Perhaps that might help with the identification.

#1: Arpad Feszty: The coronation of Queen Elisabeth. Now it's on display in Betliar Castle, Slovakia. Here's a rather bad photo (I'll try to find a better one)


Anyhow, I find this painting a very ugly one.

# 3: painting by Eduard Swoboda (Keresztény Muzeum, Esztergom, Hungary). It's reproduced in many Hungarian publications, I'll try to scan it, but still don't know when :-(

I am calling for all the experts! ;) Need help!
This "very sharp picture"  :)  was listed on e-bay. Possibly someone has a better version and could post it? As it's a beautiful picture with many interesting royals. I can't recognize all the sitters...   I see the Saxe-Coburgs -  Karl Eduard at the far right next to his wife and their children sitting on the ground? I also see Prince-Regent of Bavaria - sitting in front of Karl Eduard? Are there Baby Bee (Beatrice of Coburg),Queen Ena of Spain,Infant Alfonso (spouse of Baby Bee) ?

Thanks in advance! :)



On another thread I got these ID:  Carl-Eduard with his spouse Princess Viktoria von Schleswig-Holstein-Gluecksburg 1885-1970 and their children Pr Hubertus, Pss Sybille, Her. Pri Johann-Leopold      standing Pr Albert of Schleswig-Holstein-S.G. and Pss Karoline Mathlde, Dss of Albany, Pr Alphons of Bourbon-Orleans, Freiin von Thuena, Dk Carl Eduard of S.C.Gotha,
in the middle sitting: Pr Philipp of Sx-Cob-Gotha, Pss Albert zu Schleswig-Holstein-S.G. Dss Victoria Adelheid of Sx-Cob-Gotha with the christened child Pss Karoline Mathilde of Sx.Cob.Gotha, Pss. Alphons of Bourbon-Orleans, Prince Ludwig of Bavaria                 

Who would be the Freiin von Thuenna ?

Who is "Pss Karoline Mathlde, Dss of Albany".  I thought the last Princess of Albany was Alice, sister-in-law of Queen Mary.

I guess Jose meant 2 different persons - Prss Karoline Mathilde,sister of Duchess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. And Duchess of Albany. They stand side by side in the picture.

In Response to Post # 151:

Are Austro-Hungarian Empresses crowned as Austrian Empress, Queen of ungary AND Queen of Bohemia?  So, are there three coronations?

This question may sound stupid but I really don't know much about Empress Elizabeth so I am trying to learn all I can.

Austria-Hungary did not exist in that form until after the "Ausgleich" of 1867. Thus Elisabeth was crowned Queen of Hungary in Budapest on 08th. June, 1867 and Zita in December 1916. As far as I know, there was no separate coronation in Prague...the Crown of Bohemia was part of the Austrian coronation ceremony. By the way, should this question not be moved to the Habsburg section????

By the way, does anyone have  info on Duchess Wilhelmine of Wuerttemberg (1844-92), daughter of Duke Eugen and  Princess Mathilde  zu Schaumburg-Lippe ? Duchess Wilhelmine was spouse of her relative Duke Nicolaus of Wuerttemberg (1833-1903), the couple was childless. Any info and pictures are very welcome. :)
