The Habsburgs / Re: Archduke Friedrich (1856-1936) and his family

I remember, when I was in Vienna there was a very pretty paiting of Karl I. of Austria in one church, unfortuntely I can't remember the church at the moment, but maybe any other knows it.
I made a photo of the painting at that time, and I am going to post it next time, or perhaps the others already know it!?

Thanks for the other great pictures of the blessed emperor! :)

The Habsburgs / Re: Archduke Otto (1912-2011) and his family

Archduke Otto was released from hospital about ten days after his fall, which took place on the weekend of 13th. June when he lost his footing and slipped on a step, leading to head injuries. He is back home again and said to be fine. What a relief!

Cheers,

Thank you for the info! I didn't know that he fell and was in hospital, I really hope he's recovering, would be bad if somethings serious happened to him now....it's always dangerous in that age....!

Thank you! I already got the info by a friendly member of this board...It's interesting, as I didn't know that Princess Caroline was close to any male royal and that she would already marry in the coming time. But well, she is of that age, where she is supposed to marry. It is only a little surprise that he is much older than her, already at the End of his thirtees...well yes, for me it would be too old, I think.
It would be interesting to see the couple, how this man looks like. From her looking I think Caroline will be a very beautiful bride. I hope, it's really the right husband for her, and that they will have a happy family in future....I hope there will be pics in September!! :-))

This is definitely not Hedwig. She looks like one of the daughters of Leopold Salvator. Meg?


A pity with the identification mistakes, in the last time I often noticed that the archives identify the pictures wrongly. It's a pity, because if you don't know it, you don't know that they are mistaken.....

Only for you to know, there is already a topic " Empress Maria Theresia and her daughters", where she and her siblings were already discussed, maybe it already helps a bit for certain infos.

mjabele refered to Maria Anna (1804-1858), daughter of Franz II./I. and his second wife Maria Theresia of the Two Sicilies. So Maria Anna was Empress Maria Theresia's great-granddaughter. I think you mixed this Maria Anna up with Empress Maria Theresia's daughter who had the same name., Britta.

Anyway, there is also a thread about Franz I./II.'s children:

Yes, I didn't look correctly, thanks for correcting me, my head is too full with university works as it seems.....sorry....

I'd love to have the book if its in English??

I have the same problem. There is no translation and I haven't ordered the book myself until now, it's also quite expensive and I don't speak french. That is the problem. But when I order it, I will post info.

Hello!
Thank you very much for collecting all those great links and for posting them here!! The articles are great and the pictures as well..!
He has become very impressing, this young Prince, wonderful in his looks and also- as it seems like- much connected with the role of his family . I hope he will be - even when in a modern way- a good representative of his family, even in the 21th century- in future...!
I wonder a bit, why his father wasn't present there, maybe he is very busy with other things, I don't know. Or is it just the case that we don't see him on the pictures and he was there? I have to read though the articles more carefully...when more time.
I must confess I saw Charles on recent photos of the site belgapicture, and maybe it's only my impression, but he seems somewhere changed to me, he looks almost a bit too thin now or more slim than before. I hope he is well, maybe it's just that he has too much stress.... Jean Christophe is very fine like this.
Not that the appearance is that important for me, I just wonder, why Charles somewhere appeared different to me. What do others think?

Strange is that when I first heard of Marie, I supposed that there are no photographs of her at all!

There was a french lady making a presentation, where I firstly heard about her- many years ago-  and there she stated: Marie was never photographed, as she didn't like to be photographed....strange!  ::)

these fictional portraits are terrible...they looks like they were painted by child :)

I don't think so, to be honest, I don't think they are so bad. I wished I could paint like this...
I think you are the one, I once sent some of my self made pictures, maybe I should not have....:-(

Great! How did you do that????

I think that photo wasin Celia Bertin's book as well.

In my book it is indeed there- at least very similar, but the images, which were lately mentioned here, would interest me a lot as well....

Great pictures. The belgapicture site is fascinating...there are also a lot of great pictures of Charles Napoléon, even very recent ones.
