In these two lines of descent the most recent common ancestor is Roberto I, Duke of Parma (1848-1907).
Both the Empress Zita and Prince Felix of Luxembourg were his children by his second wife Maria Antonia of Portugal.
Ah the Parma line, of course. Also through this line but through Duke Robertos second wife nfanta Maria Antonia of Portugal (mother of Felix and Zita) we have another common descent for the couple, that of Dom Miguel and thePrincess Adeldeid of Lowenstein Wertheim Rosenberg.
Two lines in fact for Princess Marie Astrid.
Dom Miguel>Infanta Maria Ana>GrandDuchess Charlotte>Grand Duke Jean> Princess Marie Astrid
Dom Miguel>Infanta Maria Antonia>Princess Zita>Archduke Carl Ludwig>Archduke Carl Christian
