Wish to see it in full

The woman in this detail of the full picture where Marie Valerie also appears is Marie Wallersee Countess Larisch, Empress Sisi's niece.
There is a topic about her:

Concerning the rifle and this well-known picture:     This brings to mind an on/off topic thought:  Of course, the rifle in the photo would be non-operable. (Pointing even an EMPTY operable weapon at someone, even in jest, is a terrible violation amongst weapons enthusiasts.) I wonder if the Heir was EVER permitted to fire a "real" rifle, even under the MOST supervised conditions, due to the potential of someone with his condition brusing easily, especially since the butt of the weapon would be at/near a joint?  I have fired many different military rifles, including the Mosin-Nagant variety.  All are weighty and they can deliver a healthy "pop" to the shoulder, even if held in the most approved stance or even on a rest.  I have never seen a photo of the heir (in his later years) doing nothing but POSING with firearms, be they replicas, unloaded ones, etc.     AP

Aleksei got gun toy in 1915 - for his 11th birthday. Most probably it is the one!

Appears to be directly replicated from the Mosin-Nagant rifle.     AP

The children got pop guns to play with during the war, but those really aren't dangerous at all as long as you don't shoot it next next to someone.
