Does any one know their heights?

LadyLeana 12-21-2008 12:58 PM

Since the youngest two are not yet fullgrown, we decided not to put this info in the FAQ posts. Have you checked this thread? I believe Joachim & Maria Laura are about as tall as Amedeo (give or take a few inches).

sgl 12-21-2008 02:44 PM

This is a silly question, but how tall is Amedeo? Maria Laura has always appeared to be quite tall in photos.

LadyLeana 12-22-2008 12:14 PM

Well, he has his own FAQ where it says he is about 6'1"-6'3".

People say that he is between 6ft 1 and 6ft 3, but i think he is 6ft 5.

Rihga 02-12-2009 04:02 PM

6 ft. 5 inches seems kind of tall for him. I think he is more between 6 ft 1 inches and 6 ft 3 inches.

Eloise 07-01-2009 10:52 PM

why Joachim and Amadeo have the same "Marcus D'Aviano" name, what this means?

MAfan 07-02-2009 03:30 AM

This is a name often used in Habsburg Family.

amedea 07-02-2009 05:07 AM

Marcus d'Aviano is a saint and a monk who had an important role at the court of emperor Leopold I and is quite famous in Austria. I think that the blessed emperor Charles I had a strong devotion towards him and gave that name to his sons, an habit followed by many of his descendant

aliocha 09-05-2009 02:42 PM

Is Joachim going to go to the military royal school of Brussels, this year?

Tilla 09-05-2009 04:46 PM

I am wondering why the princes have partly also feminine names and the princesses also male christian names. Why this? What is the origin of this tradition?

amedea 09-06-2009 05:44 AM

I guess that's because they have also the names of their godfathers, of both sexes

Tilla 09-06-2009 07:38 AM

Oh, if it is so, then I must say: what a lovely idea, quite extraordinary, to get also the christian names of the godfathers and godmothers. Thank you for this information.http://www.theroyalforums.com/ugala/...cons/icon7.gif

A lot of female descendants of Emperor Karl and Empress Zita have a male name, Markus/Marcus d'Aviano; moreover, and this happens in a lot of Families, both men and women have the name Maria/Marie, a female name used for both men and women; I remind Neipperg Family (the family of Archduchess Andrea of Austria), where all the members have MAria as first name (the husband of Archduchess Andrea is Maria Karl Eugen, and their children are Maria Philipp, Maria Benedikt, Maria Domonik, Maria Hemma and Maria Katharina).
So in Habsburg Family it is not unusual to use male names for women and female names for men.
