Indeed...I think the Pope make exceptions to the rules for their friends (Gloria is a firm friend of the pontiff).

I don´t agree, Eric. I don´t imagine the Pope "allowing" Gloria von Thurn und Taxis living her sexuality in complete freedom when the Catholic Church is fiercely conservative about these questions. Don´t imagine the Pope saying: "Gloria, you can do what you want to do behind your bedroom doors".

This is Julia of Thurn and Taxis, daughter of Prince Carl Friedrich von Thurn und Taxis and   Monika Anna Brueckner


She looks a little bit like Nene



Julias great-aunt is Eulalia Thurn und Taxis, the wife of Philipp Ernst, Nenes grand-son.

Prinzessin Augusta Elisabeth Marie, wife of Fürst Carl Anselm of Thurn and Taxis (1734-1787).
She tried to kill him, after her financial losses. Carl Anselm had many mistresses and for Augusta it was a humiliation.
Carl Anselm arrested her in Schloss Hornberg. After her death, he married Elisabeth Hildebrand von Train.

Huh, what a strange family story!  :o

Genealogy.euweb says, that Augusta and Karl Anselm were divorced in 1776...
Augusta and Karl Anselm were cousins.
In painting from Tischbein Augusta looks like her mother Maria Augusta Wurttemberg, née Thurn-Taxis (look at their faces, especially the noses:)

Marie Augusta (1706-56):

That is not Paul, it is Gustav. I thought it was him.



That´s Paul

Albert






Pr. Albert looks sinister.
May be because he is bald.

My apologies to any bald poster ;-)

Do you know when did the 2nd photo was taken and does anybody have a HQ photo ?
One can distinguish the Duke and Duchess of Bragança and the Margrave of Meissen

I knew she had broken her engagement with R-R and ran to Ph-E but I had no idea she actually left her fiancée standing at the altar.

What a scandal it might have caused...

I guess the two brothers were not that close, at least from that moment on :-)

I noticed the wedding was at Schloss Taxis.

I guess the groom had all the doors locked ...  just in case :-)

Merry Christmas to all posters in these boards.

On the second picture I can see the Margrave of Meissen and his wife Elisabeth and behind them Dom Duarte of Braganza. I could be wrong, too.
15. 07. 1950, it was ther diamond wedding.

Pauline von Metternich-Winneburg (1880–1960), daughter of Fürst Paul Clemens Lothar von Metternich-Winneburg (1834–1906), married Maximilian Theodor Egon Lamoral of Thurn and Taxis (1876–1939). He was the nephew of Maximilian Anton and the son of Theodor Georg Maximilian Lamoral (1834–1876).

Her daughter Princess Margarete von Thurn und Taxis married Prince Raphael of Thurn und Taxis.



Paulines nickname was "Titi" :)
She was an great-aunt of Paul Alfons Prinz von Metternich-Winneburg, the husband of Tatiana Metternich. She wasvery popular in her family.
