Karl (1761-1814) and Moritz (1771-1837) Lichnowsky were brothers. Karl, who was the second prince (Fürst) Lichnowsky was married to countess Maria Christina von Thun und Hohenstein, and had a son, Eduard (1789-1845), third prince Lichnowsky. Eduard was married to the Hungarian countess Eleonóra Zichy de Zich et Vásonkeö. Their oldest son was Felix (1814-48), fourth prince Lichnowsky. So Felix was the grandson of Karl and the grandnephew of Moritz.

This is a link to a page with a picture of Felix. It is only in black and white and not very good, but it is all I could find. It is the second picture on the page, the first one being of Felix's father Eduard:

I´m really grateful, Rebecca!

Do you know if Felix had sons or sisters?

Thanks a lot!

You are very welcome, Yseult.  :)

Felix was not married, and as far as I know he did not have any illegitimate issue. But he did have siblings...three sisters and three brothers! :) His sisters were:
1) Marie Agnes (1815-1845), she was married to the Hungarian count László Győry de Radvány.
2) Leocadia (1816-1873), she was also married to a Hungarian count, Adolf Viczay de Vicza-Hédervár et Lóos.
3) Antonia (1818-1870), she was married to Fürst (prince) Richard von Khevenhüller-Metsch.

Felix's younger brother Karl (1819-1890) succeeded him as the fifth Fürst (prince) Lichnowsky. Karl was married to princess Marie von Croy. The other two brothers, Robert (1822-1879) and Ottenio (1826-1887) remained bachelors.

By the way, I misspelled the name of Felix's mother in my earlier post and did not spot it until it was too late for me to edit it.  :-[ Her correct name was Eleonóra Zichy de Zich et Vásonykeö.

It´s a valuable information about the descendence of prince Karl and his wife Christine, Rebecca! Can you tell me, please, if you know something about the descendence of count Moritz, prince Karl´s brother? I have read somewhere that Moritz married an opera singer, but I don´t know if it´s true or false...

That is very kindly said, Yseult.  :)

Unfortunately I do not know very much about Moritz... He was married twice, firstly to an Italian lady, Maria Anna (or Marianna) Caramelli di Castiglione-Faleta, but they did not have any children. He later married a lady by the name of Josefa Stummer, and I guess she could have been an opera singer...  ;D ...but I do not know for sure. Anyway, they had a daughter, Josefa (1814-1878). She was married no less than three times!  :o Her first husband was a man called Karl Johann von Frank. The second one is only mentioned in the sources I have seen by his last name, Woess. The third husband was a nobleman, Franz Födran, Ritter von Födransberg (I suppose that the German title Ritter can be translated as knight but since neither German or English is my first language I am not sure...sometimes titles are difficult to translate correctly). I remember that in some source the second husband is not mentioned at all.  :-\ I do not know if Josefa had any children.  :-\

Moritz's first wife, Maria Anna (or Marianna) did not die until 1817, which means that Josefa was born prior of her parents marriage. Maybe that could explain why there is so little information about her.  :-\
