Thanks purple_platinum. This appears to be the reburial of the the parents and brother of Archduchess Regina, wife of the Archduke Otto, Head of the Habsburgs.
The Saxe-Meiningen Ducal Family vaults in Hildburghausen have been renovated.

Yes, Archduke Otto and his second son Archduke Georg. The caption says "Severin von Habsburg" and "little Ferdinand". I assume the latter is Archduke Ferdinand Zvonimir, Prince Imperial of Austria, son and heir of the Archduke Karl. As to Severin, he is not an Archduke nor a Habsburg, but Severin Meister, son of Archduchess Gabriella, herself a daughter of Otto. I have checked the G-ARMB but there is nothing about this family event there; purple_platinum, you were first with the news! :)

The Habsburgs are a very large extended family whose members live all over the world. Some live in Austria, and some Imperial private properties have been retained; the Archduke Otto lives in Bavaria.

Apart from this thread, the Old, New, Royal and Blue forum has extensive pictures and coverage of various Habsburg weddings.

A lot of pictures can be found at the website of seegerpress, only type in what you search for in german for example Helene von Habsburg.
A detailed Genealogy ca be found on my Website in the genealogy Section from both the Imperial Line and the Tuiscany Line.

Bran Castle restored to Archduke Dominic

US architect Archduke Dominic von Habsburg (-Tuscany), (C), accompanied by his wife Countess Emmanuelle, (2-L), his sister Archduchess Maria Magdalena, Baroness von Holzhausen, (2-R), and his family lawyers in the courtyard of Bran castle before the ceremony to return Bran castle to the Habsburg family, in Bran village, 190 Km north from Bucharest, Friday 26 May 2006.

Archduke Dominic who inherited the castle, was forced to leave with his family in 1948. The 14th-Century fortress - whose real name is Bran Castle - has appeared in dozens of Hollywood Dracula films. It was owned by the late Queen Marie who bequeathed it in 1938 to her daughter, Princess Ileana (who was married to Archduke Anton of Austria of the Tuscan branch of the Habsburg family). When the communists took power in Romania, the castle was confiscated and fell into disrepair.The castle has since become one of Romania's most popular tourist attractions

Bran Castle, Romania

Prince Dominic of Habsburg just received back from the Romanian state the castle of Bran. Could you please let me know how he is related to the Hohenzollern Romanian royal family ? He must have close ties to them since the castle was a favorite place of the late Queen Maria, grandmother to King Michael Ist and who greatly contributed to the decoration of the castle.

Many thanks !

King Ferdinand and Queen Marie's daughter Princess Ileana married Archduke Anton of Austria (Tuscany branch) in 1931. On her death in 1938 Queen Marie left Bran Castle to Ileana. Archduke Dominic is one of Ileana and Anton's sons, and so the ownership of Bran Castle is now held by a Habsburg Archduke.

Princess/Archduchess Ileana and King Carol were brother and sister; Archduke Dominic is thus a first cousin of King Michael.

Does anyone know how Dimitri d'Asburgo Lorena or Principe Dimitri Kunz d'Asburgo Lorena fits into the family tree of the Habsburg-Lothringen? A lot of guidebooks about Florence claim that this restaurant-owner is really a Habsburg-Lothringen (I checked: d'Asburgo-Lorena ist the italian translation of "Habsburg-Lothringen). But how does he fit into the family? And where does the "Kunz"-part of the name comes from? He is said to have a son Soldano and a daughter Anastasia.

On the homepage of the restaurant it says that there is a castle in the Val d'Elsa of Tuscany.

http://www.ristorantelagiostra.com/i.../frameset.html



I looked a bit further and found that the family claims direct descendency from Peter Leopold of Habsburg (later emperor Leopold II. of Germany).

Jo, there is nothing in Burke's Royal Families of the World Vol I. This may indicate this restauranteur is a descendent via a female line, or a morganatic line.
Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor, died in 1792 so we are going back a long way. :)

I wonder what "Chessie" found in Karl Habsburg. I wonder what Karl found in her apart from her money. After all she is the future empress-pretender of Austria-Hungary... wonder what Otto Habsburg thinks of this if he even knows.... Talk about a Mette-Marit of Norway....

Somehow there are people I simply don't understand. Where I simply have no idea how they tick. Or better - if I get an idea how they could be ticking I simply don't want to follow up on these thoughts....

Chessie's marriage brought her into new royal circles. Despite her family's wealth, she wasn't considered equal to the royal families of Europe and the Habsburgs were one of, if the not the, greatest royal dynasty in European history. Now she's a member of that family, even if only through marriage.

...Duchess being the courtesy title, and princess being her hereditary position. Point being that a royal duchess is different from a noble duchess. But thanks, really.

I just read Martha Schad's published edition of Marie Valerie's diary. Marie Valerie was the youngest daughter of Empress Elisabeth (and apparently the only child she was really interested in).
There is a picture in it that shows two elderly women in the Imperial Rooms in the Hofburg. One is sitting in a big chair, the other one is writing. The woman in the chair has white hair, the other one grey/black hair. The caption says that the picture shows Ida von Ferency and Empress Elisabeth. Does anyone know or remember this picture? If you do, can you tell me who of the women is Sisi? And do you know about any other pictures that show Elisabeth as a middle-aged or elderly woman?

I don't know what she saw in him - but I can imagine what he saw in her. She is attractive, outgoing, and seems to have a huge personality.
Luckily enough, and unlike Mette-Marit, she won't be an empress, so I don't care whether she toured with Marilyn Manson or the Chieftains. Besides, she looks quite good and reformed nowadays (no running around without any underpants on any more!).
