Hello José,

I fear that you will already know those pictures (I am not sure, if they were already posted here) but I send them, because they are nice.

Sophie with her children:

Franz Ferdinand (it´s an impressing picture for me):

Sophie and Franz Ferdinand´s children:

1) Max:

a) as a boy:

b) as an older man:

2) Ernst :

Has anyone pictures of him as an adult?

3) Sophie:

a) as a girl:

b) as an old woman in her house:

I would also like to know more about their lives after the death of their parents. I found it always very tragic that both sons of Franz Ferdinand had to suffer in KZs under Hitler´s regime, because they were against the connection Germany- Austria. Even after the became free the consequences always remained, and both did not become very old. Ernst died in his fiftees and Max in his sixties. 

hi britt
the picture of sophie in her home in later in her life...did she lived poor?..maybe i should say simple?its seems that her room looks like an apt .wery intersting picture of her .when i was visiting Konopiste castle the castle operator said that she did visit and they were all so happy to see her...i think it was after the wall came down.where did she live?and did she speak czech?
