I have always loved this diadem. I believe it is my favourite piece of royal jewellery. Each time I see a picture of it, it makes me swoon !  ;)
Need to check my sources but it seems to me that it was sold by the late Count of Paris.

Yes I remember something like that, didn`t he sold it to the State??
I think it was ten years ago or more, there was a dispute among the Orleans regarding the sell of the jewels, I believe that the Count of Paris was in need of money!  :)

And are you sure this picture is really Pierre M. and not Bruno d´Harcourt?
The pics in Mon Album de Famille come from the Orléans family archives so there is very little chance they should be misidentified. Besides, Princess Isabelle was an aunt of Prince Michel of Greece who wrote the book (his mother Françoise & Isabelle were sisters) and he spent time with her & her family.

I would like to start a topic about MARIE CAROLINE (1822-1869), Princess of Bourbon-Sicilies, daughter of Leopold, Prince of Salerno and Maria Clementina of Austria. She was the wife of Henri d'Orléans, Duc d'Aumale.

Please, post informations and pictures!

Marie Caroline, nicknamed Lina, was born in Vienna on April 26th 1822. She was the favourite granddaughter of her maternal grandfather Emperor Franz I. of Austria. In 1832, Franz gave the painter Johann Ender the order to create a portrait of his three favourite grandchildren Lina, Franz Joseph and Franz Reichstadt.



Lina married Henri d'Aumale, Prince d'Orléans in Naples on November 25th 1844. They had four sons: Louis Philippe (1845-1866), Henri Léopold (1847-1847), François Paul (1852-1852) and François Louis (1854-1872) who all died quite young. Lina also had miscarriages in 1849, 1861 and 1864.

When Sophie en Bavière married Ferdinand d'Alencon in 1868 and went with him into the English exile, she got to know Lina and Uncle Aumale. Sophie and the couple spent much time together and when Lina died only one year later, on December 6th 1869, aged 47, Sophie suffered a lot.

Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Marie Caroline, La Duchesse d'Aumale

Unfortunatly, just black and white portrait by Winterhalter.

This picture is very nice, but the paintings seem to be much different than the later photos, here she is beautiful, but the photos do not know her that beautiful, her face rather very longish and the eyes a bit stange. :o

She really looks beautiful here, I wonder why the difference to the photos. I may remember that she was already  discussed somewhere else here and there is one topic at the message board, which has already some more photos of the Duchesse d´Aumale. Can anybody tell me where??

Has anybody more photos of her (instead of the paintings) ?
Thanks! ;) ;)

I think she started off as beautiful. Isn't she the one the Comte de Chambord was also in love with ?

Winterhalter always made his sitters more beautiful and angelic than they really are...

That´s what I meant before, especially on the first picture you see the typical features, the face is very long...on the painting of Winderhalter it´s not to recognize, there she is very nice.
I think her face looks a bit strange, maybe it´s because the typical family relation of many of those marriages...

I think the one by Winterhalter showed her as a young woman in blond curls..etc. The second one passed the first flush of youth (also without the ringlets, the face showed up not too well). The third one was middled aged.  8)

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
