Thank you, MAfan. Purely by accident I found Archduchess Elisabeth while watching a 1963 video of the marriage of Princess Alexandra of Kent and Sir Angus Ogilvy. Elisabeth was then six years old and served as a junior bridesmaid at the wedding. I was surprised, as I didn't know that there were any close links between the British royal family and the Habsburgs, but upon reflection it makes perfect sense, because the bride's mother was Princess Marina of Kent (née of Greece and Denmark), whose older sister Elisabeth of Greece and Denmark (a Countess of Toerring-Jettenbach by marriage) was the grandmother of little Archduchess Elisabeth. At any rate, the young Elisabeth appears for a few seconds beginning at minute 1:01 of the video and then again at 2:50.

It is so sad that Archduchess Elisabeth died at such a young age... only 20 years after this video was made. Does anyone know the circumstances? She was such a beautiful little girl and young woman. It is also striking that her sister, Archduchess Sophie, has suffered a great deal of early loss. In 2010 Sophie and her husband, Prince Mariano Hugo of Windisch-Grätz, lost their second son, Alexis, when he was 18 or 19 years old in a car accident. To lose a sister and then a son so very young... what profound sadness.

Ah.... Thank you, Marengo. So sad indeed. Archduchess Elisabeth's maternal grandmother, Princess Elisabeth of Greece and Denmark (for whom the little Archduchess was named), also died of cancer at the relatively young age of 50.

HI&RH Archduke Heinrich of Austria passed away on 20 March 2014, aged 89.

Born in 1925, he was the second son of Archduke Maximilian (himself the younger brother of Emperor Karl I) and of his wife, née Princess Franziska zu Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillingsfürst.
He was married since 1961 to Countess Ludmila von Galen, by whom he had three sons (Philipp, Ferdinand and Konrad) and a daughter, Marie-Christine.
He is survived by his wife, their children, three daughters-in-law and seven grandchildren.

General News & Information about other members of the Austrian Imperial Family

I thought I would create this thread as there wasn't a thread for the Archduke in question. I also decided to create this thread as I feel that it would be useful to have a thread about the other Austrian Royals who don't have their own threads. I hope this is alright and if there is indeed a thread relating to the Archduke (I looked and couldn't find one), then please feel free to move this there.

Archduke Rudolf of Austria, the brother of Archduke Carl Christian (husband of Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg) is going to visit Salaberry-de-Valleyfield in Quebec in connection with the closing celebrations of the seventy fifth anniversary of the 1032 Assembly-Colonel of Salaberry and the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus. Archduke Michael of Austria, his son, will also be present. The reception will be held in the city hall.

For those who are unaware; Archduke Rudolf is the son of Archduke Carl Ludwig and his wife, Princess Yolande de Ligne. He is married to Baroness Hélène de Villenfagne de Vogelsanck and they have seven children: Archduke Carl Christian (b. 1977), Archduchess Priscilla (b. 1978), Archduke Johannes (b. 1981), Archduke Thomas (b. 1983), Archduchess Marie des Neiges (b. 1986), Archduke Franz Ludwig (b. 1988), Archduke Michael (b. 1990) and Archduke Joseph (b. 1991).

Here is a photo of Archduke Rudolf.

"She is a little angel and like her name, she brings sunshine even on cloudy days. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your lovely best wishes for our daughter. She feels very loved". HRH Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland on her daughter, HRH Princess Leonore, Duchess of Gotland.
