In many European countries it haven't been possible to have more than one citizenship until the last decade or so. When a person applied for citizenship in a new country they lost their old citizenship. I know that the U.S. have allowed dual citizenship, about 30 years ago or so a Swedish ice-hockey player playing in the U.S. had applied for a U.S. passport to make it easier to travel with his American team, but he still believed that he was a Swedish citizen too. He was supposed to play for Sweden at a World Championship in Ice-Hockey when it was discovered that he had a U.S. passport and he was sent home disgraced because that meant that he had automatically lost his Swedish citizenship when he became a U.S. citizen.

According to the Luxembourg Grand Ducal site about Maria Teresa she became a Swiss citizen while living in Switzerland. La Grande-Duchesse - Cour Grand-Ducale de Luxembourg - Famille grand-ducale
Cuba doesn't allow dual citizenship, so she lost her Cuban citizenship when she became a Swiss citizen, if not earlier:

As a swedish hockey fan, I remember the incident that Meraude mentions. It was during the 1998 Olympics in Nagaon. Ulf Samuelsson, who played in the NHL at the time, had applied for and received US citizenship. What he didn't know whas the this meant the his swedish citizenship was automatically revoked. As a result he wasn't allowed to play for the swedish hockey team (Tre Kronor) in the tournament.

The citizenship laws in Sweden has been changed since that. These days it's allowed to have dual citizenship in Sweden.

In the Netherlands dual citizenship is also not allowed but... when the old country has a law that does not permit the revoking of a citizenship (like Argentina), then a double citizenship is allowed, as there is no alternative.

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands has both the Netherlands as well the Argentinean citizenship, purely because she is technically not able to revoke her native citizenship. There are so many countries in the world and every country has its own regulations concerning the citizenship.
