The photos above shows Leopold Sigmaringen, no doubt.

Thanks ! I think Leopold was a wavey blond, while his brother Fredrich had straight hair. I am a photographer myself so I pick up on details.

Difficult to say definitely. Is that from the Hohenzollern Schloss?

Could be an idealised painting of Louise.

I read in John C. G. Röhls book about Wilhelm II. that Friedrich Sigmaringen had a long affair with a Elisabeth Wedel and that they had two children, a boy and a girl. The affair was in the 70s and he married in 1879 Louisa.
He seems very suspicious to me.

Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis

Please keep in mind that we can only see these rare and wonderful pictures of the ÖNB collection, because someone paid for it.

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

Yes and this is because I don't find it fair to post this pictures only, without the link. (However we all know where to search for this wonderful images.)

Elisabeth was a very beautiful young lady, she looks very nice in all her photos, of course
that I've seen. How old was she in the last one? I think that is my favorite of Elisabeth

How interesting. In which of Röhl's book you read that? I wonder if this affair was known by the Thurn und Taxis family .
