Thanks Mcferran and Gleb for your replies. I can read some Italian and is interesting how he is referred as
un ambizioso di prima categoria or the closer english equivalent of being a first class power hungry (ambitious) individual on his schemes to enlarge his territory at the expense of others.

There were more cases. Isabella, the sister of Carles V the emperor, queen of Danemark and his mother Joan, who refused to hear mass. Marguerite, the sister of François I, also flirted with heterodoxe doctrines. the "plague" raised particulary high ladies, even very high.

Francesco V, whose stylish was: Duc of Modena, Duke of Reggio, Duke of Massa, Prince of Carrara, Marquis of Este and Lord of Rovigo (from 1846 to 1860) Also Duke of Guastalla (1847-60). He abdicated in 1860 and died in 1875. He married Aldegunde Wittelsbach, princess of Bavaria, daughter of king Ludwig I. They had only a daughter, Beatrice, born and died in 1849.


If the current titular duke uses the title "duke of Este", it must be a new creation, for the last dukes of Modena were "marquis" d'Este. By the way. Anyone knows if Este is a territorial entity. Is somewhere a little originary land called Este?

Once, the Estes ruled in Bavaria as dukes. Two members of the House of Este were Holy roman emperors: Lothaire III and Otto IV, in the Middle Age. It seems the eagle is conceded by Emperor Frederic III and also the dignity of duchy to the marquis of Modena.

She and Alphonso IV had three sons: Francesco II (above) later duke of Modena, Maria Beatrice, later Queen of Great Birtain and Ireland, Scotland (and France  and finally one child who didn't get adulthood.
She appears as St Cecilia in the Ursuline covent founded by her, wich is now a musical conservatory!
She might have play very well harpsychord, for cherubins acted as chorus

Does anyone knows something about Renata,Duchess of Modena,born Countess Harrach von Rohrau und Thannhausen?How did it come to this marriage?Was this political marriage since I read somewhere that Count Aloys von Harrach was at one time Viceroy of Lombardy?
