I think she was the cousin of Sisi (Empress Elisabeth of Austria). When she first arrived in Vienna, she saw both her cousins and hugged them impulsively. Archduchess Sofie scolded her, while she replied "But I know them, they are my cousins ! " . That did not cut it with Sofie. I did not know if the warm relationship between the cousins remained throughout the years...
