Does anyone know anything about Empress Zita's relationship with her mother?

I think that Emperor Karl is burried in Madeira Island, Portugal, where I was born.

I know an old woman, she lives near my domicile, and she told my about her aunt. She was lady-in-waiting of empress Zita. This old woman has a big and beautiful old armchair from any castle, and she gave mi some old photos with imperial family. In one photo is her aunt with children from Carl and Zita. ( I cogitated she was maybe a nanny. I must tell it to old lady).It´s very interesting. But my scaner is not functional now, I can´t give this photos her. But when I´ll have a new scaner, I´ll give it here.

If I am not mistaken, I believe that Archiduke Karl Franz Josef of Austria - later Kaiser Karl I - was born on August 17, 1887, and that he died prematurely in 35 years, on April 01, 1922, of a pneumonia or a disease of this kind.

She reminds me of Tatiana in this picture.

I don't know if Tatiana was prettier than Zita or the reverse. I could not pronounce me on this subject because I would not be an impartial judge.

In any case, I think that Zita was more beautiful with the naturalness than in photographs. Indeed, on films archive where we can see her in her youth, she appears always radiant, bright of beauty and grace.

I personally think her features were sharper than Tatiana's, but it also indicated that Zita had a stronger personality than the elegant but quieter Tatiana.

I wanted to say a not very common temperament, of course  ;)
