Why isn't there any information out about Prince Otto. Never hear anything about him. Only about the Princess. Why?   ...and who was the girl that he was originally betrothed to?


Elisabeth and Otto met each other at a Court Ball...The rule was that a girl who belonged to an Imperial family had to ask first a man to dance and that such an invitation must be extended only once.But Archduchess Elisabeth smashed that rule by asking the Prince to dance with her 3 times...

The Prince was already betrothed to a Countess(one of the Schoenborn Countesses if I remember correctly),who was also present at the ball...When she saw what was happening she went home angry,but that did not disturb the young Archduchess who soon arranged to be married to a man she fell in love with...

That's the only thing I know about the girl who was betrothed to Otto...If anyone knows her identity for sure,please help ;) 
How did you come by this information? Please, Thank you.

This question was merged with the Archduchess Elisabeth, "Erszi" which is typical of what most people would do. Prince Otto of Windisch-Graetz I'm sure got tired of being down played like this in real life after all being forced to marry her. Why the Emperor would force Prince Otto to marry her and then turn to Elisabeth and tell her she would never rise to her true position. Look at the Queen of England and her side kick. She still got to be Queen with Prince Philip beside her.

That last one is Franz Josef´s father, Archduke Franz Karl.


The Emperor Franz Joseph looks like his half sister Theresa.
