Mediatized Noble Families / Thurn und Taxis, the youngest line
« on: April 08, 2009, 01:57:34 PM »
I would like to discuss the youngest branch of Thurn-Taxis family, which was found by Friedrich Hannibal (1799-1857), fifth from six sons of Maxmilian Thurn-Taxis (1769-1831). Friedrich Hannibal married in 1831 hungarian countess Aurora Batthyany and they have four children, two daughters and two sons:
Lamoral (1832-1903), who later married countess Antonia Schaffgotsch, had two sons and their descent lives till today
Rosa (1833-1907), not married
(very known) Helene (1836-1901), lady in waiting of Empress Elisabeth, married in 1871 count Wolfgang Kinsky
and Friedrich (1839-1906), married with countess Marie Thun, had one daughter
Is anything more known about this branch of family? Any pictures? Where did they live, in Germany or in Austria?

French Royals / Gaston, Count of Eu and the Orleans-Braganza family

I´m very surprised that this interesting branch of Orleans family don´t have its own thread. I´m not sure if it belongs right here, to French Royals, but Gaston Prince d'Orléans, Comte d'Eu, husband of Princess Isabel of Brasil, was son of a French I put it here.
So – is this branch more Braganza or more Orleans? :)  Who is the Head of this family? Do they still live in Brasil or did they move back to France? Are they in some connection with their relatives – French or Spain branches of Orleans family? Or do they live as „normal“ citizens?
Pictures, infos of various members of these family etc. are welcome...

Iberian Royal Families / The daughters of Joseph I of Portugal
« on: March 17, 2008, 05:36:47 PM »
King José I. of Portugal had four daughters. Oldest one, Maria da Gloria, became a queen of Portugal and was married to her uncle Pedro.
What about her sisters?

Maria Ana Francisca (Lisbon 7 Oct 1736-Rio de Janeiro 16 May 1813)
Maria Francisca Dorotea (Lisbon 21 Nov 1739-14 Jan 1771)
Maria Francisca Benedita (Lisbon 25 Jul 1746-Lisbon 10 Aug 1829); married in Lisbon 7 Feb 1777 her nephew (and cousin) José

Queen Maria I. was mentally ill, she suffered from melancholia and religious mania. Were her sisters „normal“? Why Maria Anna and Maria Francisca did not marry? Are there any pictures of them?

Mediatized Noble Families / Dietrichstein family
« on: October 18, 2007, 03:10:30 PM »
I am searching informations about Count Maxmilian Merveldt from Germany. I know his biography, but I need some info about his family – I only know, that he was married with Countess Maria Theresia Dietrichstein – but who were his parents? Has he any brothers or sisters? And has he some children?
Please, will you help me with this?
