I agree. I think there's no other possibility. The portrait itself suggest the 17th century, Joseph I. became King of Hungary in 1687, at the age of 9, so it looks OK. On the other hand, this portrait is quite mediocre (or worse), so I shouldn't care about resemblance.
Anyhow, one more portrait:

Strange is that on the picture the "Habsburg lip" of Joseph is too much in opinion. He did not have it that much. It is well known (I know different descriptions of Joseph I in books) and it is always said that he was not that "Habsburg" and very different also in looks from his brother emperor Karl VI. He really did not have that Habsburg mouth like on the anonymous portrait (You see the difference very well on the other two posted portraits) After the long time of family marriages (Leopold had already lost two wives, who were closely related to him, when he married Eleonore from Pfalz Neuburg...) there was finally "new blood" in the family. But it´s strange, among the children of Leopold the Habsburg features- and lip is divided very differently. Leopold had it terribly to say the truth, but his son Joseph not that much. His face is also more long than on the portrait. It looks nice that piece of artwork, but no - or almost no- resemblance to the real Joseph! The rather "full" looking party around his chin does not resemble to the emperor´s as well, who was rather slight in his stature. That´s only my opinion. ;)

Maria Theresia (1845-1927); m.1865 Philipp, Duke of Württemberg 
Mathilde (1849-1867)
Elisabeth (1831-1903) m. Karl Ferdinand of Austria
Clotilde of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1846-1927) m. AD Joseph Karl
Marie Henriette (1836-1902); m.King Léopold II
Adelheid (1822-1855); m. King Vittorio Emanuele II
Maria Theresia (1849-1919); m.King Ludwig III

That Archduchess is definitely Archduchess Marie Karoline (1825-1915), daughter of Archduke Karl, and spouse of Archduke Rainer (1827-1913). The picture is from Österreichische Nationalbibliothek.

There is a chapter on Ludwig Salvator in the book "Habsburgs vergessene Kinder" by Thea Leitner. Maybe anybody of you has read it. I did not read this chapter until now, even when I have the book.
It seems that he catched an illness, which let him look very bloated in the face during his last years, and let him suffer a lot. He was also engaged (?) or at last interested in Archduchess Mathilde, daughter of the famous Archduke Albrecht from the Habsburg Teschen line.

Please, am I correct in assuming that the inscription on this card is Romanian, and that Franz Ferdinand is standing with Carol I of Romania? And can you recognize anyone else? Thank you.

yes, Franz Ferdinand and King Carol I. The other men could be aide-de-camps.

Hello
I have find a very beautiful portrait of a lady identified as Maria Theresa of Austria and dated 1837.
Can anyone of you tell me who was the lady?

Yseult:

You are quite welcome!

I think the portrait you have would be her marriage or engagement portrait as it was dated  1837.

I will look around and see what I can find.
