I thought the same (because Rudolph was the heir), but Sophie was their first child. But probably you are right and the baby is Rudolph. ;)

Have had a little look at the site. Even though most of it is in French, the site looks great and I love the layout :)

Wonderful site KaiserinSissi, it was full of surprises for me!!! Thanks for sharing, finally I could find some press illustrations that I've been looking for a while!! The paper dolls are superb and quite creative! (X_X) As well as many new images! I believe that the Wittelsbach lady of the -new!!!- photo (the one with the dark crinoline dress wearing a hat) must be Sissi, but is true that there waas a strong resemblance among the sisters.

Actually, i found that image in my archives, most probably from an auction site (it was tiny, i enlarged and enhanced it), but in the description said nothing about the Id of that lady. I supposed it was Sissi and asked to a dear friend to post it in a Italian forum about Sissi.

It looks a lot like her but who knows ;-)

Thanks for posting a pic of that sculpture! The baby, in my opinion, could be any one of the royal babies, but Rudolph is likely.

Agreed with Yelena, all the sisters did look alike!

From a Hungarian site: Empress Sissi at an event -with Franz Joseph and little Rudolph-

Here a bit bigger!!

From a Russian site: an allegory of the Hungarian millenium -I think-, I'm not sure if the lady sitting at the right is Sissi (she looks a lot like her) considering that one of the men at left looks a lot like Gyula Andrassy 

Here much bigger!!

Those are amazing, especially that last one. They're drawings aren't they?

Yes, they're drawings. And according to the site (better to say, according to the translator), the artist was Bertalan Székely (the last by Imre Revesz). If I'm not wrong these lovely drawings were  illustrations of a newspaper.

They're absolutely beautiful!  I'm most partial to the second one.

I'm just looking at that website now. Some of Székely's works are stunning.

The Queen in the Buda hills, sorry for the size and quality of the image, that was the most I could enlarge it without damaging the quality of the pic.

Another newspaper image! It's amazing how much the looks of newspapers and magazines have changed since then. 

You do find some good Gems, Yelena!
