Here's an article published in a Portuguese magazine, regarding Archduchess Catarina's new book about Sissi.
It shows a photo of Quinta da Marinha (a villa in Cascais, where Catarina and her family spend every summer vacations). In the interview, she also praises her Portuguese cousin, the Duchess of Bragança:

Thanks Elsa, anything in particular for which she praised the duchess of Braganca?

-
Do you know if the book is only available in Portuguese (and I suppose Spanish) or in other languages too? I am not sure if another book about Sisi has something new to ad, there is already so much written... Does the archduchess have a degree in history btw?

In this book, Catarina publishes some (unedited?) photos of Sissi and transcribes many letters exchanged by the Empress' lady-in-waiting (the Hungarian Countess) with her sister, thus allowing to have a glimpse at what really happened in Mayerling, with evidence to the fact that Archduke Rudolph was murdered, despite the official thesis of suicide.

It also helps to understand Charlotte of Belgium's madness, the relationship between Isabel and Count Gyula Andrássy, etc.
It seems interesting... but I don't know if it's being published in the Netherlands too.


Catarina has a degree in Political Science, and a post-graduation in Law and she has published a book about the realpolitik of Napoleon, Bismarck and Margaret Thatcher in comparison to Franco.
Besides, she's also the author of some "historical" books, such as the one about Marie Antoinette

Karl von Habsburg-Lotharingen is the Hungarian archduke too. A lot of people don't know that Habsburg family is the royal family of Hungary now. However, the country isnt a Kingdom nowadays,but here are a lot of monarchists. (MONARCHISTA GONDOLATOK ; Magyar Történelmi CSaládok Egyesülete(MTCSE)/Főoldal Magyarországon - Történelem - Történelmi - Családok - Egyesülete - Európai - Unió - nemesi ; Magyar NemessĂ©g etc.)

Otto von Habsburg-Lotharingen 's son, Georg (György) lives in Hungary with his family.

Archduchess Catharina was recently in Portugal, to promote her latest book, about Empress Elisabeth, and she gave this interview to Caras magazine:


Among other things, she said: "I'm just like any other woman. I take my children to school in the morning, then I come back home and, after doing some homekeeping, I start writing. One of the advantages of being a writer is that we can work at home, and I'm even able to do it with my children screaming out loud".

The Christmas season was spent in Italy, but now they're back to Switzerland, where Catharina is already working on a new book.

Does anyone know about Carlo Bourbon Parma of Habsburg (born in 1975). As I know he has older brother Roberto and sister Paola. Is he the member of royal family?

The most recent Bourbon-Parma and Habsburg marriage was almost a century ago (Princess Zita and the future Emperor Karl in 1911).
There are no Bourbon-Parma siblings named Carlo, Roberto & Paola and I can't see any record of similar Habsburg siblings.

can anybody post some info about AD Isabelle neč von Croy? Is it true that she strongly opposed to the weddings of AD Franz Ferdinand and Sophie Choteck? And how did she feel about the wedding of her son and of her daughters (in particular the one of Maria Alice) ? Why the wedding of her daughter Isabelle was annulled? I have also heard something about her jewels, some more precise info?

ADss Isabelle opposed to the wedding of FF and Sophie because she wanted FF to marry her daughter Marie-Christine, later Hereditary Princess zu Salm-Salm, and mother of ADss Rosemary, wife of AD Hubertus Salvator.

Sophie was one of the ladies-in-waiting of Isabella and one day when Franz Ferdinand visited them at their Castle he forgot his watch there. Inside was a picture of Sophie. As soon as Isabella found out she informed the Emperor.

It's not that the Austrian government turned coldly against the Danube Monarchy, It's what comes next.
After restoration. And I'm not referring to the usurper Karl King of Hungary's decedents. They're not even In the picture.

The Anstalts or Constitutional Austria that ran Habsburg territories then and now rejected Karl as Emperor of Austria, because he shouldn't have been there In the first place. He may have been crowned King of Hungary but never Emperor of Austria. And there was no prospect of him continuing.
After the first war ended, fact Is fact.

There are 2 major factors the brought the end of Danube Monarchy:
Karl King of Hungary, (His Interference In things that did not concern Him.
The hidden factors that he knew nothing about)
And the Treaty of Saint-Germain, (full stop).

Emperor Franz-Josef's plans Included an Interregnum, a period of change between Emperor 's that would have modernized the Danube Monarchy.
A change In the laws of succession that would allow his decedents succeed to the throne.
A law to bring Independence to the Kingdom of Hungary

(The Habsburgs In there Time like no other family has endured so long or left so deep a mark upon Europe: The Habsburgs where the greatest dynasty of modern history, and the history of Europe revolves round them, not they round It.
Author: A J P Talyor. The History of the Habsburg Monarchy 1809 - 1918)


Modern Austria Is not a Republic by choice as It's people where never given the opportunity between Monarchy or Republic.

There Is many hidden factors & truths about the end of Danube Monarchy. Things no one will ever know about, but you'll always get the conspiracy theorists that will go aaahhhh but?
