Here are the CDV's of Isabella and Francesco. I think the man at left in the e-bay card is really Count Trapani.

Thanks a lot, I guess you are right.  ;)
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Assuming the couple on the left is the Trapanis, then the couple on the right could be the Áquilas.
What do you guess ?

No, the other couple is definitely not the Áquilas. :)

Just compare -

Countess Áquila (with sons)

Judging by the photos, the lady is not definitely D.Januária, princess of Bragança (Brazil), but he looks like the Count of Aquila.
Could the lady be any of his sisters ?
Was Aquila engaged to any princess before marrying D.Januária ?

After looking at the picture Sveta had posted, I also thought that the man on the right could be the Count of Aquila.

His sisters were

- Luisa Carlotta (1804-1844), married to Francisco de Paula Infant of Spain
- Maria Cristina (1806-1878), married to 1) King Fernando VII of Spain and 2) Fernando Muñoz y Sanchez, Duque de Rianzaro
- Maria Antonietta (1814-1898), married to Leopoldo II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, Archduke of Austria
- Maria Amalia (1818-1857), married to Sebastian Infant of Spain and Portugal
- Maria Carolina Ferdinanda (1820-1861), married to Carlos Infant of Spain
- Maria Teresa (1822-1889), married to Emperor Pedro II of Brazil

Isabella (on the left) looks quite young here. As she married in April 1850 I guess the picture was taken in the early 1850's ...

By the way: The background of this picture looks very familiar to me. I've often seen this kind of painted trees and landscape in photos showing members of the Bourbon-Sicilies ...

 :-\ I still see no resemblance between Count of Aquila and that man at the right in the picture. IMO - different faces.

hey

I got a new question.

I'd like to know if the children of princess imperial of brazil D. Januaria lived in brazil with her & made their lives there. maybe their uncle Emperor D. Pedro II provided them some place at his court administration or army?

what about Princess D. Leopoldina's sons ?

thanks ! merci ! gracias !:)

new idea :)

I found information about every brother of king Ferdinando II of two-siciles except Antonio di Borbone, Count of lecce...Someone knows ? career or marriage projects?

Prince of capua was a vice-admiral of two-siciles & married unequally
Count of syracusa was a navy officer too & maried maria-filiberta di savoia-carignano, cousin of king Carlo-Alberto of sardigna maybe to make alliance with this kingdom
Count of Aquila did like his elder brother & married the princess imperial of brazil. He later became a brasilian admiral
Count of Trapany married his niece Isabel of Austria

 I've never heard of her or her sisters  returning to Brazil after marriage. She would have been the heiress of Maria II of Portugal 1826-1837

I found this:


His 2nd daughter Januaria became Princess Imperial of Brazil at her father's

Perhaps because He died young the information is limited.

HRH Antonio Pasquale Prince of Naples and Sicily, Count di Lecce
(Since December 8th, 1816:) HRH Antonio Pasquale Prince of the Two Sicilies, Count di Lecce
* Palermo, September 23rd, 1816
† Pozzuoli, January 12th, 1843

Yes you are right . I looked her up in Burkes and she was Pss Imperial of Brasil with the style H I H from 1835-1845. I presume that Francisca Carolina was heiress to Portugal ? All the family were born at the Boa Vista Palace in Rio and married in the Imperial Chaple in the Cathedral

Very interesting! I never heard this story... Where did you read it???  Maybe in the second book of Harold ACTON, "The last Bourbons of Naples (Gli ultimi Borboni di Napoli)? It is not yet translated into french... Thank you.
