Mediatized Noble Families / Re: Czech republic & Restitution
« on: December 21, 2015, 09:51:16 AM »
Imagine, the Princely Family of Liechtenstein once owned 2 % of all land in the current Czech Republic!

1600 km², while their current principality is only 160 km², 10 % of that!

that´s why they never get back any of their former properties...

is this lady related to Marie Larisch? Danke schon in advanced!

I think it is Marie Henriette (1884-1907), third child of Marie Larisch-Wallersee. It is also said that father of Marie Henriette was not Georg Larisch but Heinrich Baltazzi...

Can someone tell me more about this Elizabeth Brezec?Ferdinand wanted to marry her...I havent seen a picture of her...

Here is an interview with Alzbeta Brezakova (in slovak language, with photo of an old lady). She said that she married Ferdinand in Bamberg in 1947 in a secret marriage. It´s for the first time I see these information - it was never mentioned in any genealogy...

in Libochovice, there is a portrait of Alexandrina´s mother, Ekaterina Shuvalova. Copy of this portrait is also in castle Sternberk. Portrait of Alexandrina (owned by family Dietrichstein-Leloir) is now exhibited in castle Mikulov.
Hi beladona is this castle cesky sternberk?how u visited libochovice and mikulov?

It´s not castle Cesky Sternberk (property of Sternberg family), but Sternberk (in Moravia, before WW2 owned by Liechtenstein family) - little confusing, I know:

Russian Noble Families / Re: Nesselrode

Thanks to this information,I found that he had a son Dimitri and two daughters Helena and Maria,but nothing is known about them...

Helena (born 1815) married Michael Kreptovich, Maria (1820-88) married Albin von Seebach. Dimitri (born 1816) has from his marriage with Lydia Zakrewskaja one son, Anatol. Do you know something more about Nesselrode´s mother, Louise Gontard? She probably was not from noble family?

Do you mean this Karl Robert (1780-1862):

His parents are: Maximilian Julius Wilhelm Nesselrode (1728-1810) and Louise Gontard (1746-85).

Portrait of Princess Alexandrine von Dietrichstein,Countess von Mensdorf-Pouilly,the last member of Dietrichstein-Proskau-Leslie family by Oskar Kokoschka:

You mean Alexandrine Dietrichstein (1824-1906), wife of Alexander Mensdorff-Pouilly (1813-71)?? It must be some mistake...

I ve seen images of Mathilde with the same lady at the ONB with the same label,. Weird, isnt it cause it doesnt look at all like Maria Theresa

Yes, you are right, Maria Theresa was more pretty than this lady...but who could be her then?

Are you sure that the girl on the right in the first picture is Maria Theresa?. As far as i know none of the sisters had "dark" skin and eyes. Maybe she s a friend or another relative?

There is an inscription under the photo: "J.J.K.K.K.K.M.M. Erzherzogin Mathilde u. Therese," but it could be bad...
