Margarethe:



Her waist is really heavy! But the photo is nice, thanks!

Later she looked like a man!

Agreed, she had masculine features, it got worst with age...

A different pose from the one posted in page 2:

Could it be that Albert looks a little bit like Karl Theodor? The good-looking version??

I can't see any resemblance. And I also don't think that Carl Theodor wasn't good looking. In my opinion he was quite handsome as a young man. Later he looked ill in some way and was too skinny, that's true.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Found in the Austria Archives this wonderful portrait of a princess Bensie (?) of Thurn und Taxis............now I've seen they often use nicknames, but who could this be?

Could it be Felicitas Prinzessin von Thurn und Taxis??
Born 16 January 1889, died 3 March 1934


Or Gabriele Gräfin Kinsky von Wchinitz und Tettau, wife of Erich Thurn und Taxis?
Born 28 March 1883, died 28 October 1970


Or Luise von Thurn und Taxis, daughter of Franz Thurn und Taxis and cousin of Felicitas Taxis.
Born 4 May 1887, died 4 March 1949


Or (what I think) Mathilde von Thurn und Taxis, daugther of Egon Thurn und Taxis. She died only with 38 in Vienna. And her father was a member of the Vienna court, also in Hungary, because his wife Viktoria was from Hungary. And on the newspaper stands "Wien-Budapest"
Born 21 February 1874, died 7 May 1912 Vienna.
Also she looks like Vicktoria Edelsbacher: http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=14575.0

I've enlarged the picture a bit....and I think you are right! What a wonderful finding!!!! There are a few lines in the paper further on, where it says that this princess Bensie frequently visited the Wiener salons....
