Marie of Thurn und Taxis



Marie was very interesting woman with great love to arts.
Rani, you are the specialist on pictures of Thurn and Taxis family  :), do you have any pictures of her husband Prince Alexander (1851-1939)? Or any pictures of her sons:
Erich (1876-1952)
Eugen (1878-1903)
or Alexander (1881-1937), who was later naturalized in Italy as Principe della Torre e Tasso, Duca di Castel Duino?

You mean Princess Maria and poet Rilke? They are not related, of course, but Princess was his great supporter... One of his book is called Duino elegies, after the castle (Thurn und Taxis property), where he lived and wrote it...

Yes, you´re right. Marie (1855-1934) was wife of Alexander Thurn und Taxis (1851-1939). After her death he lived only for five years. I don´t think that he was married again.

Rani, do you know, who are the other men (better to say boys maybe:)?
Is it known, why Eugen died so young?

Castle of Duino is near Trieste. It is a lovely place. Also nearby is Miramare, the palace of Maximilian and Charlotte of Mexico.

Alexander with his first wife Marie Princess of Ligne


I must made a small correction, Rani. Look better what is written on this photo. This is Alexander, son of Erich and Gabriela, neé Kinsky, and his wife Marie Valerie, neé Mazzuchelli, in year of their wedding. I think their marriage was considered as morganatic?

Yes...according to European royalty rules then. Now the concept of a morganetic marriage is non-existant in most reigning royal houses.

I would say Thurn and Taxis, too. But the czech line.

Here is a good article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_Branch_of_the_House_of_Thurn_und_Taxis
