L imperatrice Marie Louise
« on: June 08, 2006, 09:57:12 AM »
I have no affection at all for Marie Louise....  :(

But as wife of Napoleon I and mother of the charming and tragic NapoleonII, she deserves a thread.... ::)

It is interesting that this plain Archduchess who would have probably married an archduke and would have been another unknown and insignificant Archduchess, pass to history because of the man she abandonned.

I have the impression that she was cold heart, Napoleon used to say that she did not love her son, for she was not a very affectionate mother, I believe she did not like to carry him. Something amazing also is the fact taht she NEVER ask for her aunt Marie Antoinette, she never ask where her aunt`s corpse was....

I like this one, she looks so fresh and blooming, I imagine that freshness is what Napoleon liked the most!

Yes I have once read in my books about Napoleon that he had said: "Nothing goes over German and austrian women, they are fresh like the roses!"

 I think he meant Marie Louise with this! ;)

children of Albertina Sanvitale (daughter of Marie Louise and Neipperg):


= Grandsons of Marie Louise






The older one later a son, Giovanni Sanvitale, who died around the End of the Second World War or  abit later (I have to look up the dates again... :-X)
With him the Sanivitale -Line of Albertine died out.



Daughter Albertine:











There is an interesting link about a museum concerning the Sanvitale-counts, I have to look up this again!

Another interesting fact, is that when she gave birth to Napoleon II the doctor siad that it was most likely to be the only child the couple would have, since the labor was difficult!!!
However she had three chldren form Neipperg!!!! :o

Albertine, Countess of Montenuovo (1817-1867, married Luigi, Count di Fontanellato) and Wilhelm Albrecht, Count of Montenuovo, later created Prince of Montenuovo (1819-1895, married Countess Juliana Batthyány von Némét-Ujvár). Marie-Louise and Neipperg also had a second daughter, Mathilde, Countess of Montenuovo, in 1822.

I wonder what kind of a mother she was to those children??she was probably a better mother than with poor Reichtstadt, I read a couple of years ago a biography on Napoleon II and the author emphasized onthe fact that when she was visiting her son in Vienna she was always in a rush to live to the tranquility of Parma and the arms of her lover/husband and to her Montenuovo`s children!!!!

Albertine was born on May 1 1817
she married Luigi Count di Fontanellato in October 1833
they had 4 kids:

Albert born in 1834
Marie 1836
Stephan 1838
Luise ?

Whilhem born in 1819
he married Juliana Batthyány
and had three children:

Albertine  1854
Alfred 1854
Maria Sophia 1859

«she NEVER ask for her aunt Marie Antoinette, she never ask where her aunt`s corpse was....»...Maybe because her father, the Emperor Francis II, advised her to not open old wounds. Many of the french that at the Napoleon's Empire were powerfull mens, in Marie Antoinette's time weren't. People didn't liked Marie Antoinette, an austrian Archduchess, and Marie Louise was also austrian. She needed to demonstrate to the french people that she wouldn't advice Napoleon to restore the Monarchy...

Dear POlignac it is possible that as you said her father warned her not to make any question, but in maybe in private she might have tried to know some information on her aunt!

Anyways, here is the complete rubis parrure she wears in one of her official portrait:

ENJOY!!

I have a picture of the bracelet somewhere I have to look for it!
 This parrure was returned after the Restoration to Louis XVIII who had it remodelled for the Duchesse d Angouleme. In this portrait she is waering the necklace and bracelets. (sorry for the poor quality)
