 Why she sided finally with M theresa against her daughters and sons in law interests?


I'm not sure but I remember reading somewhere that it was because she didn't want war.

According to the Spanish ambassador in Vienna, Jose de Viana, Empress Elisabeth Christine was "beautiful, well shaped, tall, very white... a person who devotes her time to charity works and together with her ladies-in-waiting mades needleworks that decorate two very beautiful rooms in the palaces of Laxenburg and Halbthurn. She loves hunting, music and among the animals she is especially fond of her forty dogs."

Any portrait of her grandmother Christine Friederike of Württemberg? (Daughter of Louise von Öttingen Öttingen)?

I know, a very special question...

Thanks for a link! ;) ;)

Excellent thread. thank you very much, Trenck.

  Why she sided finally with M theresa against her daughters and sons in law interests?


Amalia Wilhlmina of Brunswick-Luneburg



There is a big contrast between the first portrait posted by Marc and this. Both images could be together a kind of biography too.



Very nice portrait, but has nothing to do with Empress Amalia Wilhelmina...it´s not her

She remainds me Amalia of Solms, but I´m not sure, if it´s really her...
