Xavier :



Princes René, Sixte and Xavier of Bourbon Parma :




I think there are two mistakes with these two last pictures:
1."Xavier" is in reality FELIX.
2. The three princes are, in my opinion,René, XAVIER (not Sixte) and FELIX, not Xavier

How did this very devout Catholic family deal with the fact that their patrimony (the Farnese Duchy of Parma and Piacenza) was established for the illegitimate son of a cardinal who became pope, I wonder???

Princess Francesca of Bourbon Parma, sister of Zita :




She appears to me like a pale copy of Zita, without the charm or grace of her younger sister. In the photos and period films, she often seems sad and sulky.

I can't help myself, Roberto's children by his second wife Antonia resemble each other so much that it's sometimes really hard to distinguish between them.
Francesca was a well-known beauty. Well, she wasn't ugly, of course, but in my opinion she as far away from being beautiful - even if I keep to the standards of that periode.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Question About Picture

It seems like I should put this question in the Italian Royal Families message board, but Roberto I of Parma's thread is located here.  I found this image on flickr.  It has been tagged as showing Princess Beatrice of Bourbon-Parma, Countess Lucchesi Palli (1879-1939).  I'm skeptical.  I haven't seen enough pictures of her, nor do i know enough about fashion, to be able to make a judgement on this picture.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/29482804@N06/3278235323/

Even if does show a "Beatrice de Bourbon," could it be one of the following? 

The Duchess of Ansola (nee Beatrice Harrington) - 1891-1979
Infanta Beatriz of Spain, Princess of Civitelli-Cesi - 1911-1986
Princess Beatrice of Bourbon, Princess of Roviano 1874-1961

Can anyone confirm the identity?  Thanks for your help.

Based on the fashion alone, there's no way it could be the Beatrice described--who would have been in her 60s in the photo which this lady is not. I would think that would rule out the Princess of Roviano as well.

I presume it must be Beatrice of Clinchamp-Bellegarde (1883-?) married in London August 6, 1906 with Henri-Gabriel RICHARD (1865-1942), son of Blanche of Marconnay, the morganatic spouse of Prince Pasquale of Bourbon Two Sicilies, count of Bari.
That Richard was actually adopted and acknowledged by Prince Pasquale but the adoption was subsequently annulled by the French justice after several lawsuits between him and the Royal House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.
Henri-Gabriel RICHARD was first called "Richard of Bourbon" and then "Richard de Marconnay".
He was known as the "Count of Bari"in the Parisian high society.

Does anyone have any information about Elias' wife, Maria Anna of Austria? And does anyone know why their son Robert II of Parma never married?

Who is the bridegoom ? Sorry if that sounded silly.  :-[

I wonder where is the studio. From the logo in the corner it seems to be the same one that did Elisabeth ("Wooley") and Sophie ("Tiny") of Greece. If that is true, that would be in Paris.
