She lost her youthful looks quickly. No wonder Otto strayed.

Otto never was really into her. She was way to "prude" for him, despite her phisycal beauty

Her looks wouldn't have been relevant according to some reports since Otto was more into pretty boys.  

FJ even put him under house arrest and only allowed female staff to try and straighten him out.

Or was that Archduke Ludwig Viktor of Austria instead?

Archduke Maximilian, youngest son of the couple


Oh, if his father was der schöne Otto, Max looks über-schön!

The photograph is labeled the Duke of Braganza, brother of Archduke Otto's stepmother, but looking at other pictures of the Duke of Braganza, looks as if the Library of Congress has mislabeled that photograph. Any way of informing them?

in fact the LOC mislabeled the image cause that handsome hussar IS Archduke Otto. I didnt find a link to send a mail to correct them and they havent upload  the image to their Flickr.

Is it just me or is someone else noticing the likeness between the Archduke Otto and Archduke Rudolph........


They do have some resemblance and there was that same funny thing they did with their hair.



They may have looked über-schön but they were also über-bad bad boys.  One time there was a speech made in the Austrian Parliament by a Pernerstorfer about how some very exalted gentlemen stopped a funeral procession so they could jump over the coffin with their horses.  Although Rudolf wasn't involved in this, he was incensed that anyone would dare attack the imperial family in parliament.  Shortly afterwards, Pernerstorfer was given a savage thrashing in his home by 2 men and in her memoirs Stephanie claimed Rudolf wrote to her about his involvement in a letter:

"The police gave me an uncomfortable time; they have discovered the clues and also the regiment responsible for the thrashing!  They did not find the men concerned since we planted one of them in southern Hungary and the other in Hercegovina.  It took all my brazenness to extricate myself and Bolla from the affair."  (Archduke Otto aka Bolla)

Really, that's shocking, Pezzazz! I imagined something like that could happen in Russia, but not in good old Kakanien!

Interesitingly enough none of her grandchildren ever remember having seen this tiara, which seems to have disappeared.

Is it this tiara? Too bad, it was such a cool one, like a little crown.
