Are these boys Miguel and Franz Joseph Braganza?

This picture is shown in Huber's biography about Marie Gabrielle, right? As far as I can remember the boys are her cousins (sons of Miguel and Elisabeth Thurn und Taxis).


Yes, it is from Huber. Their stands "Braganza Prinzen". And it could be them. The boy in the front has these haircut of Miguel.

Were they close friends ? (Gabrielle & her cousins)

Could be. Marie was close to their aunt Luisa Taxis.

I've never seen this photo before, so I am absolutely thrilled. Thanks for sharing!

There are some pictures of Marie Gabrielle and little Luitpold, but I don't think they were taken during the same sitting. MG's dress looks different and she seems to be younger in the first pic which was taken in 1903. Also Luitpold, born in 1901, looks older than two years in the pic.

Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Marie-Gabrielle is such a beautiful lady! And Luitpold and Albrecht were beautiful boys as well! Lovely pictures!

Tragic that only one boy survived from that lovely family.
