She looks interesting and beautiful. Wasn´t she a Wittelbach descendant? Of one of Sisis siblings? I seem to remember it...I am bit too lazy to look it up again. But is it true?

Marie José was the only daughter of Elisabeth Queen of Belgium. Elisabeth was the second daughter of Carl Theodor Duke in Bavaria and his second wife Marie José Infanta of Portugal-Braganza. It's quite obvious that Marie José was named after her maternal grandmother.

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

That's EMANUELE FILIBERTO (born 1972), only child of Maria José's only son Vittorio Emanuele. He is married to Clotilde Courau (born 1969) and has two daughters (Vittoria, born 2003 and Luisa, born 2006). And, by the way, he is a really handsome guy ...  :-*

I have just been reading "Billy Baldwin:An autobiography" (with M.Cardine,Little,Brown.Boston 1985) in it he mentions a Baltimorean socialite Alice Garrett..who lived in Rome for some years pre WW2, with her diplomat husband.It seems Umberto used to visit her and try on her Parisian haute coture clothes....and as they were of the same stature they were a perfect fit !!!!.

They loved each other in some way, but fascism wasted everything and the strict rules of Italian Royal Familiy made Maria Josè very sad and annoyed.

Anyway as their daughter Maria Beatrice said Maria Josè kept on loving Umberto II all her life long.

Not! Any other woman is involved!

Gossip says that Umberto's first love was the soubrette Milly... but she isn't Umberto's mistress and she isn't involved in Umberto and Maria José's crisis ... Umberto was a very faithful husband and also his wife Maria José was very faithful!
