There you can see pictures of Miguel and the children

http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=2815.0

Pictures of Elisabeth are so rare. I hope somebody will scan the photo of Elisabeth and Miguel from Malcolm Howes book "The Braganza Story". There is a photo from the same shooting.

Wow Rani! Thanks, I love those pics! Louise looks prettier than Elisabeth IMO
The one of Elisabeth and Miguel is from the same session that the one posted above

Thank you so much for posting the links and the photos, Rani!  :) :) The pictures are beautiful. It is indeed a pity that pictures of Elisabeth are so rare. She was a beautiful woman.

Just was able to retrieve the death certificate of Paul from the online archives of Cannes (http://archives.ville-cannes.fr/vues_g/1E50/navimages-fr.svg.php?imageName=1e50_180. He died on March 10, 1879 at 9 am at the age of 35 with the name "Paul de Fels "(Baron). married to Elise Kreutzer. Unfortunately, the cirumstances of his death ar not mentioned (or I can't decipher it...).
Obviously, he still lived in Regensburg according to the record, but the reason why and where he stayed in Cannes are not given.

I'd like to attach the jpeg file, but don't know how to do this.

I wonder if he was buried in Cannes.

In the TV Series "Wagner" (with Richard Burton & Vanessa Redgrave, 1983), Prince Paul of Thurn and Taxis (played by Arthur Dernberg) has a obviously a part (see cast at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085107/fullcredits#cast).

Haven't seen the series yet, but ordered it from Amazon. I'll keep you posted.

That portrait reflects much about Marie's avante garde style. It is dated 1902; she is years ahead on hair style, dress design, pose. She looks like Barbara Stanwyck in the early 1930s.

Does anyone know how Prince Ludwig-Philipp of Thurn and Taxis died?  He was only in his early thirties, if I remember correctly...

He died because he had a cardiac insufficiency.

His funeral in Niederaichbach
