I have lots of photos of Auguste. Here is one of my favourite pics:

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

That´s a nice picture of her, there she looks better than on the others that I´ve sent (so I think)

It interests me because she is the grandmother of Géza of Habsburg. Her son is Gézas fathers, but he doesn´t resemble him very much, he looks rather like his mother Princess of Saxony I think, whose mother was Maria Luisa of Toscana, also Habsburg!

Do you know anything about Augustes life? Was she happy with her husband or not?

Auguste Marie Louise Princess of Bavaria was born on April 28th 1875 in Munich. She was the second daughter of Prince Leopold of Bavaria (1846-1930) and Gisela Marie Louise Archduchess of Austria (1856-1932). The Princess was named after her paternal grandmother Auguste Princess of Tuscany and her godmother Queen Marie of Bavaria, mother of King Ludwig II.
Empress Elisabeth of Austria, Princess Gisela's mother, wrote about her little granddaughter: I have never seen such an ugly child, but she's lively and looks like Gisela. I guess Crownprince Rudolf, who received this letter, must have been very upset after reading these lines.

Auguste got engaged to Archduke Joseph (1872-1962), eldest son of Archduke Joseph and Clotilde of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, in the Hermesvilla, which is located in the Lainzer Tiergarten, in May 1893. On the day of the engagement there was a big dinner in the Hofburg, Vienna.
The wedding took place on November 13th 1893 in Munich. Everything must have been very splendid. Emperor Franz Joseph and his daughter Marie Valérie also attended.

Auguste and Joseph had six children: Joseph Franz (1895-1957), Gisela (1896-1901), Sophie Clémentine (1899-1978), Ladislaus (1901-1946), Mathias (1904-1905) and Magdalene (1909-2000). The family usually lived at Alcsút near Budapest.

During WWI, Auguste cared for injured soldiers - just like her mother Gisela. She also wanted to work at the front, but her grandfather Franz Joseph was against it. In his opinion it was too dangerous.

In 1944 Auguste and her family left for the United States. Later they returned to Germany. Since then Auguste and her husband lived with Margarethe Clémentine von Thurn und Taxis, Joseph's sister, at Schloss St. Emmeram in Regensburg.

Archduchess Auguste died in Regensburg on June 25th 1964, two years after her beloved husband. First the couple was lais to rest in the cemetery of Feldafing (Upper Bavaria), but in the 1990's their tombs were brought to Budapest.

Joseph, Auguste and their daughters Gisela and baby Sophie Clémentine (thanks to synnadene)



Three of Auguste's children. The books says that this photos shows Ladislaus, Sophie and Joseph, but the little girl in the centre looks younger than the two boys ...

Here's a page that has a photo of her and a discussion about the really incredible diamond pendant she's wearing.

I am afraid Empress Elisabeth's words were true. ::) Auguste did not look like a beauty at all. Guess she resembled her father.

Only one of Auguste´s four surviving children married - why? I have read in Brigite Hamann´s book Die Habsburger that Laszlo died in a mental institution, which is most likely the reason why he didn´t marry, but why did the two daughters stay unmarried?

My dear Linnea,

I don't know much about the lives of Sophie Clémentine and her younger sister Magdalene. In Das Haus Habsburg by Alois Jahn I read that they left Hungary in 1944 and emigrated to Bavaria. Sophie also lived in Tyrol. I guess that the sisters had close contact to their eldest brother Joseph Franz, because Sophie, who died in 1978, was buried in the grave of his family in Feldafing (Upper Bavaria) until all their tombs were brought to Budapest in June 1992. By the way: Does anybody know where Magdalene was laid to rest? Budpest?

Hi,
the best sites for genealogical dates and also pictures, even of the line of the Palatines of Hungary is the site

www.geocities.com/henrivanoene/royalaustria.html

Try to look there several times, because often the site is closed, because the server has too many visitors, it seems..

But you get the site, you will find almost all the pictures of the different Habsburgs lines. It also mentiones all descendants of the Palatines of Hungary.

 It`s interesting, how many Palatines carried the name Joseph. The last one with the name was also a greatgrandson of Sisi through her daughter Gisela. (Gisela-- Augusta- Joseph) He died in the fifties (have to look up the detailled dates once again) His son Géza is a very interesting, but busy man, he is famous for his writings and presentation of the Fabérge art. I once knew him from a little Email contact.

I hope it helped a bit.  ;)
