Hello...
is it this article by any chance which you have mentioned in your post ? (so kindly translated by RubyPrincess168, which is much appreciated....thank you )

Actually, yes actually, it is almost a normal teenager with average teenager needs. Fifteen years old, auburn hair, penchant for pizza, Coca-Cola and Frappuccino from Starbucks. One that can sing along with her friends at Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga and the enthusiast for sporting guns like Michael Phelps or Usain Bolt. And of course, Johnny Depp, the mental imagery of the female adolescent youth. One that shoppt for their lives like - has the desire for extravagant fashion inherited from the mother. One that smoking is stupid and she loves surfing the internet. Sag A good student, a loving but responsible girl, it allows the parents, now and in the nerves in the Vienna "Skybar''leaves.

It is understandable that their - not quite so average - parents are very proud of her own heart, and she likes. Just last week, beaming Karl Habsburg emperor's grandson to his ears as he would with his oldest daughter, Eleonora (Monarchist the young lady Eleanor Jelena Maria del Pilar Iona call Archduchess of Austria) attended a jewelry show in the Salzkammergut. The goldsmith Barbara Urban is Nussbaumer (her husband one of the closest friends of Karl Habsburg), presented medallions against the evil eye. Focal point of the evening, however, was Eleanor. With her high-born laziness could be a Celtic Rose Moving amulet symbol never-ending happiness.

And fortunately she had actually. Among the guests were only a few photographers - otherwise it would probably get the jewelry showcase the great Habsburg show. Still, the young Blue Blood has everything of us would like too: youth, class, a knack for the right outfit, and this fills a tree, all the books.

True values.
Sounds like a threat. According to differentiate risk - in a world that is waiting to submit to her feet. Young princesses - pardon Archduchesses - are in high demand. As can be Paris Hilton in the absence of underwear still incur so many bladder infections. Her parents are aware of the temptations that lie in wait as deliberately and specifically to share family values. Whenever allow the plump schedule, spend the Habsburg clan (including the brother and sister Gloria, 10, and Ferdinand, 12), the leisure time together. In the spring of Charles and kids attended the art-mother in Japan to celebrate, too, there was the collaboration of the "Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, with the" Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary. And so called Eleanor in the public: Thyssen, not Habsburg. A name can sometimes inspire, and sometimes a burden, which also knows her mother. In an interview on her 50th NEWS Birthday wish them the young the desire for self-realization: "They should also have the opportunity to unfold - on the way as they please. They should also be able to build their own universe. And to me it is the greatest joy to watch them in how they do! "
if it is...... where is it stated the Eleonore prefers to use her mothers maiden "so as to not use the Disgraced last name of Habsburg"....... nowhere it seems........it looks very much like the spanish newspaper may had put their own twist to the story.....

it appears that my hunch that Lilarenata (being Austrian) might have had some knowledge which was contrary to the spanish article.... was quite correct MAfan

Yes, it seems so...
Although an "heavy" surname as well, Thyssen surely is less heavy then Habsburg.
Similar surnames - not only Habsburg, also whichever surname of the members of a former or present Royal Family - are heavy burdens; on a side, who has this surname may be subject of great expectations, on the other side can be subject of attacks due to the family history (and this last has been and sometimes still is the case of Habsburg Family in Austria).

Does anyone know what type of house Archduke Karl lives in in Salzburg? According to Wiki he calls it Casa Austria, and it was formerly called Swoboda Villa. I assume it is not a palace but a rather nice mansion? Does he have other homes as well?

Thanks.

I remember to have seen a picture of Casa Austria some years ago, and if I remember correctly it is a rather modern mansion, not a palace nor a castle.
I wonder why he calls "Casa Austria" in Italian...

And who's the guy with her in the 3 pic?

BTW today I found out these old photos, some of which were already posted on the forum.
Rex Features - Photographic press agency and picture library
The strange thing is that nobody commented on Eleonore's boyfriend. Does somebody know more about him?

I found out more on Eleonore's boyfriend: his name is Paolo Pontasch and despite being only 18 years old he is already active in politics and as an event manager (if I understood correctly). I also found this Clubbing de Luxe - Society - society24.at . I can't understand German but the impression that I have from it is that Eleonore's name and relations are exploited by these "friends" and associated to a luxury lifestyle that, luckly enough, never was linked with the Habsburgs before. Can somebody that understand German say if I'm right or not?

Yes you understood the article right. And I also think you have the right impression that Mr Pontasch tries to cash in from his relationship with Eleonore. Apparently they have now split up though - also to do with Eleonore going to school at Le Rosey/Switzerland and not Vienna anymore.

Gloria will become a real beauty !
I don't like Elenore that much, she seems to be a little bit flossy. She only makes party, but you never hear that she works or goes to school.
