It's really amazing how Olga's face did not change at all from when she young to when she was older.  For most adults it is very difficult to match them to their younger photos, but not for Olga.

which he apparently inherited from the come de Chambord's sister, who was married to Maximilian of Saxony ?


The sister of the Comte de Chambord, Princess Louise-Marie Therese, was married to Charles III of Parma no to Prince Maximilian of Saxony who was married to firstly Princess Caroline of Parma (1770-1804) and then to the neice of Caroline, Princess Luise of Parma (1802-1857).

I have noticed that on pictures of the Royal Family of Saxony from the late 1800's to 1918 they are always referred to as (for example) Prinzcessin Mathilde, Hergozin zu Sachsen or Prinzcessin Maria Alix, Hergozin zu Sachsen instead of just Prinzcessin Maria Alix von Sachsen or Prinzcessin Mathilde von Sachsen.  Why were their old titles of Duke/Duchess used again after being "abandoned" before?

Does it have to do with the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (Großherzogtum Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach) becoming Grand Duchy of Saxony (Großherzogtum Sachsen) in 1877? That is the only explanation I can think of.  ???

The article on Domitila, Marchioness of Santos was just recently written/edited (in the last week) and has no sources so I don't think you can reference it as a source.

Queen Victoria for example tended to delay giving out Dukedoms. The Dukedom of Albany was the last created for a younger son of a monarch not in 'direct' line to the throne, but whose male line post grandson descendants 'were' still going to hold the status of Prince/Princess and 'Highness', which was only limited by George V in 1917. Thereafter the status of Prince/Princess and Royal Highness ended with male line grandchildren and the status of Highness became obsolete altogether.

I'm sorry I don't really understand what you are trying to say here.  Weren't the Dukedoms of Kent & Gloucster created after the creation of the Dukedom of Albany?

I know that since the father of the Dukes of Madrid and San Jamie, the Count of Montizon, lived appart from his family in London Duke Franz V of Modena, Archduke of Austria-Este was kind of a father figure to his nephews in Modena.  When Franz V died the title "Archduke of Austria-Este" and some estates went to Archduke Franz Ferdinand and other estates went to Maria Theresia (later Queen of Bavaria).  So upon the death of Franz V did Carlos and Alfonso Carlos recieve anything (estates?, money?) from their uncle?

The Beaharnais related to Josephine???


Yes Josephine de Leuchtenberg, Queen of Sweden (1807-1876) and Amelie de Leuchtenberg, Empress of Brazil (1812-1873) were the daughters of Eugene de Beauharnais, Duke of Leuchtenberg (1781-1824) and were therefore granddaughters of Joséphine Tascher de la Pagerie, Empress of the French (1763-1814).
