The children of Prince Antonio and Princess Christine of Brazil called their late paternal grandmother, The Princess Mother of Brazil, "Vó Maria", which means Grandma Maria in portuguese. I heard they call their maternal grandmother, The Dowager Princess of Ligne, Grand-mère.

The grandchildren of Princess Isabel of Brazil (1846-1921) called her "Vovó", which means Granny in portuguese, while they called The Count of Eu (1842-1922) "Bon-Papa", which I think means "Grandpa" in french.

Alexandra was born 1872 not 1772. Sorry.
