Exactly 20 days after the death of Daphne her mother Evelyn, nee Lobe followed her;
She was born in Neisse an der Oder on 22 January 1944 and became Count Dietrich's wife in Munich on 19 April 1973.

Count Dietrich has two more daughters: Xenia (b.1980) & Berenike (b.1983).

To lose daughter and wife together...so sad...

I agree Biri, losing a daughter and wife at the same time must be awful. To lose a relative, particularly who was so close to Count Dietrich von Harrach, at a still relatively young age must be a very upsetting experience. May they both RIP.

That's awful. Any murder is terrible of course, but the fact that she was older and perhaps more vulnerable makes it even worse. I wonder if the murderer knew she was an aristocrat? France is quite a Republican country (although there are some parts of France that support the pretenders to the former throne) so I do wonder if that had something to do with the reason behind her murder.

How terrible!

To live a happy life and be murdered in that way...

Unfortunately nobody could be protected from such insane people.

May she rest in peace.

H.S.H. Princess Donna Francesca Romana Orsini and of the Holy Roman Empire, Duchess of Gravina, née Bonacossi, Marchioness and Countess of S. Michele Arcangelo, passed away on 14 December 2014. She was 88.

She was born in Padova on 18 March 1926, the youngest of the two daughters of Count Taino Bonacossi, Marquess and Count of S. Michele Arcangelo, and of his wife, née Donna Carolina de Zara, of the Counts of Serra.
She married in 1946 to H.S.H. Prince Don Filippo Orsini and of the Holy Roman Empire, 21st Duke of Gravina, etc. (1920-1984). They became parents of two sons, Domenico Napoleone (the current Prince Orsini and Duke of Gravina) and Benedetto, and one daughter, Ildegarda (who died soon after the birth).
In 1958 Prince Orsini - who was one of the highest ranking officials at the papal Court - caused a huge scandal, when he fled from home with his then mistress, American actress Belinda Lee.
Though they separated, Don Filippo and Donna Francesca never divorced. The Prince died in Rome in 1984.

How very sad for the Torlonia family to have another death so soon after Donna Alessandra's brother.
