WOW! Thanks for that information! So Karl and Zita were NOT the instigators of a new trend in Habsburg names!

No, they weren't. But if you keep in mind that especially the Tuscany branch of the Habsburgs loved extremely long names and that Zita was a Princess of Bourbon-Parma, it could be a "trend" of the Italian royalty.  ;)

Very interesting! How did you find these many names? In my sources it seems there are never all the names written, but only some of them, the first three or four ones. Did you find them in your books or in genealogies or both? It was really new to me that especially the branch of "italian" Habsburgs had sooo many names (the example with 20 I had never heard of before..) ;)

I absolutely adore Paul Theroff's Online Gotha. Here you can find all those names.

I only have one single book in which you can find a list of all names: Das Haus Habsburg by Alois Jahn.

Thanks ;)

...because in the most books there are really only some of the names mentioned, but not all (especially when there are more than three or four) so perhaps the online genealogy, which you said, might be good. I will have a look.

Archduke Maximilian and Archduchess Maya of Austria welcomed to their home their second son, Constantin, on June 4, 2007. The birth took place in Madrid. Both baby and mother are in excellent health!


Baby Archduke Constantin joins an older brother, Nikolaus, born in 2005.

Thanks very much for that nice announcement!
Archduke Maximilian (b. 1961) is son of Archduke Ferdinand (1918-2004) and Helene zu Toerring-Jettenbach (b. 1937). Archduke Ferdinand himself was son of Archduke Maximilian, brother of the late emperor Karl I. Archduke Maximilian is therefore Karl I´s grandnephew. He has two sisters: Archduchess Elisabeth, who is already dead and Archduchess Sophie married to Prince Mariano of Windisch-Grätz (three children). Interesting! I hope there will soon be some pictures of the newborn Archduke!

I have read that Maya is originally from Iraq, what an interesting mixture. Is this true?

Sophie's husband's name is Hugo, although Mariano figures as one of his baptismal names, it is not a name has has ever used.

I have photos of the newborn sent to me by the father earlier today, but it is my policy to keep those photos private, as we are talking about children and European laws are quite strict on the matter. If Archduke Maximilian allows  me to, we will publish images in the European Royal History Journal.

Maya is a delightful lady.  I was at their house in Madrid, at a birthday party, a little over two weeks ago.  The gender and names of the baby were shared with me then, but I intentionally kept them private until the birth took place.

I would not say so, although I know a significant number of royals and cooperate with them on myriad projects.  I suppose that I am lucky.

Thanks for the info and the corrections. I had the name from other genealogies and there he was called Marian..strange...Hugo must be allright.

I always tried to make contacts to people like the Habsburgs, but for me it´s very difficult. I always had only very little success or not any at all, and the contact did not last long, if it existed...I always admire people having more contacts like that!

But is it true that Maya is from Iraq?  And do there exist any pictures from the elder son, Nikolaus, who must be two years by now? Any source to mention? Unfortuntately I never saw the couple and the child.... :-[

Maya is indeed from Irak and as I understand it somehow related to the former ruling dynasty there.

I know inside The European Royal History Journal we had at least one image sent to me by Archduke Maximilian of his wedding in 2005. I have not included in the magazine photos of him and his wife and child.

Interesting about the backgound of Maya! But a pity that pictures of her and her child/children are so hard to find. Is there maybe any source, where it could be to find? Maybe in your journal somewhere in future???

Britt,

Actually pictures of the wedding were widely published in many magazines in Spain, France and Italy. From the top of my head, I remember a complete photographic service made of the wedding in 2005 published in the Spanish Magazine HOLA. Give me a chance and I will scan it for you. No need for subscription there.

By a friend of Point de Vue I know pictures of Nikolaus have been published in that magazine, and pictures of the newborn Constantine  and the happy parents have been sent in block to various society magazines in Europe. No big secret there. I'll try  to get a copy, post it and share it for the enjoyment of all interested. Anyways, they will be published by the usual society magazines in Europe shortly.

Also, if you make the rounds of some Royal forums you will find pictures of this nice family and their first born. They  have a very active social life.
