Hello,
Mostly I'm able to find confirmation in books or reliable sites about the identity of a sitter but I'm having problems with this one ....
I believe it's the Erzherzogin Gisela in early youth.
Does anybody know where I can confirm this ? (book or reliable website ?)


Thank you for your help !

Title says:"Unknown member of the Habsburg family" in the uniform of Lieutenant,second half of 19th century?Located in Stift Wilten,if that helps...



Anyone's guess who could it be?

LOL.... I knew this portrait and it was also a big question for me... Finally I think it could be Karl-Ludwig, 20 y.o., around 1850-55...



And as well as the (in a way) similarity of the faces, there is another factor : Karl-Ludwig was in his youth (1855-1861) governor of Tirol, and Wilten, where this portrait is located, is in Tirol...

Then... Not 100% sure, of course... But for me it's Karl-Ludwig...

Thank you for your reply,but the Karl Ludwig seems to be blond on this picture and there is a similar portrait of some other member of the Habsburg family(don't remember the name now),but belonging to some other branch,so i thought that maybe those 2 portraits are connected,maybe brothers as it seems to be by the same painter...

But still,don't know!Not smart enough,I guess ;)

It's true that KL's hair seems to be more blond, that's why I have doubts on this identification.

And this "19th century Habsburg type" is so strong, especially when they are young, that it's sometimes difficult to recognize somebody between all these guys with this long face, domed forehead, big lips...

If not KL, I think it's a member of the branch of Toscany...

(But look how Maria-Annunziata, KL's daughter, has got a striking ressemblance with your portrait... Even if it doesn't mean anything, as I said, all the Habsburgs had this face...)

Of course it does,I agree with you on almost every conclusion,but there were so many of them that nobody can guess with certainty...

Hello,
Another puzzle.
I'm trying to find out who the two women in the photograph are.
It looks to me that the standing woman is Marie Caroline von Osterreich (1825-1915).
But the seated woman .... Have compared her with members of the Royal family of the II Sicilies but have not found a good match yet.
Don't let you lead by the possible identification of the standing woman - I can be totally wrong !!

The standing woman is indeed Marie Caroline. The sitting is Queen Maria Teresa of the 2 Sicilies, widow of Ferdinando II.

Thanks !!
I actually just came across a website with photographs of the family of Ferdinando II and Maria Teresa. It was in French and that was probably the reason why I did not came across it earlier - using words like Queen ....
So I just came to the same conclusion as you did.
Thanks very much for your help !!

That's a great photo jalm. Though they were sisters I can't see any resemblance between them.

Hello,

It came with other photos on the Habsburgs.
I have found one or two photos of Elisabeth or Marie Sophia where she looks quite the same but which were not convincing me.

It is  -by the way- a cdv by Adolf Ost, Wien.

Ofcourse it's possible it got mixed up with the Habsburg cdv's by mistake !

Jan

This is neither Elisabeth nor one of her sisters. And they never went to Adolf Ost's studio.

Hello!
This is a cabinet for sale on ebay, with ID: Maria Theresa of Braganza archduchess of Austria. Dear Katenka (Fyodorovna) thinks she´s not Maria Theresa. I was sure she was Maria Theresa or maybe one of her sisters -a see a strong resemblance. Maybe anyone could help...
;)


I hope I post this properly. I have a pretty good eye for faces. I believe this photo is NOT Maria Therese of Portugal. I am going to work on finding out who it is. Photo is also listed in another site as making the same claim. Grand Ladies posts http://www.gogmsite.net/the-bustle-eras-1870-1890/subalbum-infanta-maria-tere/archduchess-maria-teresa-by.html

We did discuss that photo once. The opinions were different, and I do think that's not Maria Therese, I even thought about a Thurn and Taxis Princess - but still not sure...

In fact, my first idea when I saw the picture, was immediatly Louise of Thurn-and-Taxis, wife of Frederick of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen... But I checked, and finally I'm not so convinced, there is a true ressemblance, but Louise had a little more full face, not so fine. We can suppose maybe on this picture, it was a period where she was more thin... But :-/

I don't think it's MT, and I don't see either who of her sister it could be. Even if there definitively something of the type of all these Braganza princesses, I don't recognize really the face of one of them...

This is a big mystery...
